MILWAUKEE (AP) — Bucks starting center Larry Sanders and veteran guard O.J. Mayo will miss Monday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers, the second time in a week that each player has been sidelined by illness.
Sanders and Mayo also missed last Wednesday's game against the Pistons, the last time the Bucks won.
Guard Gary Neal is also a game-time decision Monday with a potential illness. He was supposed to be checked out by a doctor before the Clippers game. Backup forward Epke Udoh remains out with an ankle injury.
If Neal sits, the Bucks will have just nine players available Monday night.
Facing the Clippers already figured to be a tough challenge even without the illnesses for the Bucks, who are an NBA-worst 8-35.
