After his impressive 2012-13 campaign, Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders was invited to Team USA minicamp to see if he had the potential to crack the squad. Unfortunately for Sanders, his minicamp was cut short after he suffered an ankle injury while scrimmaging, according to Charles F. Gardner of The Journal Sentinel.
"I want to play," a disappointed Sanders said. "LD (Bucks coach Larry Drew) was here. I felt like I was getting that second wind today. Unfortunate. I have to get an MRI. It looks like a sprain, though. It's pretty swollen."
Sanders suffered the injury when he went up to block a shot by Chandler Parsons and came down on his foot. It’s been diagnosed as a left ankle sprain, and Sanders was expected to undergo X-rays and an MRI to determine if there is any further damage.
Gardner notes that the injury means Sanders will miss the remainder of training camp, which concludes tonight. For his part, Sanders thought he’d miss at least a week of action as a result of the injury.
