Bucks host Magic tonight

The Milwaukee Bucks return from their all-star break to host the Orlando Magic in NBA action tonight at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

They have 30-games left in the season and carry the league’s worst record at
9-43 into tonight’s game.

Unfortunately, the Bucks will be without big man Larry Sanders.  Just when Sanders was starting to put his slow start behind him with some solid performances, he suffered fractures to his right orbital bone on Feb. 8 against Houston.  He had surgery to repair those fractures and will be out at least six weeks.

Sanders had already missed 23 games when he suffered a torn right thumb ligament in a bar fight.

Zaza Pachulia will start at center in Sanders place tonight.  The Bucks are
0-3 on their six-game home stand.
