Milwaukee Bucks big man Larry Sanders missed Wednesday night’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, won by Milwaukee 109-104, with a thumb injury, officially, but he is reportedly under investigation for a bar fight. We don’t yet if Larry Sanders got hurt from the incident which reportedly occurred Saturday night, or if the thumb injury is not related at all to the incident.
