Larry Sanders has missed the Milwaukee Bucks' last three games with a back injury. As he continues to rest and try to get back on the court, Sanders is concerned about his diagnosis. He'd like to know if there is something more serious going on, so he intends to get a second opinion.

He was drafted out of UCU in the first round of the 2010 draft. In his career, Sanders has averaged 5.3 points and 4.6 rebounds per game. So far this season, he has averaged 8.5 points and 8.5 boards per game. Sanders had been getting more minutes this season - the most of his career, actually.
