Without rumors swirling about Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders having possibly lost his love for the game, both his agent and head coach came out and denied that the big fella was through with the NBA.

Jason Kidd said during a sports radio interview Monday night that Sanders could be back in the Bucks’ lineup Tuesday night, as they host the Phoenix Suns.

Sanders has been out with an illness and dealing with personal issues since December 23.

Per HoopsHype and the Journal Sentinel:

Agent Happy Walters reaction to the Larry Sanders report: “I saw that tweet. It is not accurate at all. Rumor unsubstantiated.”

 

“Larry’s been working extremely hard,” Kidd said in the interview. “He had the flu. He’s taking care of some personal things. That’s what it is. We’re hoping he joins the team shortly, hopefully in the next couple of days if not tomorrow, and moving forward. If tomorrow, that’s great. That’s all we can report … there’s no more, there’s no less.”

 

Radio host Greg Matzek then asked if Sanders will play for the Bucks again this season and Kidd said yes. […] “He’s ours. He’s part of the family,” Kidd said.
