MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks say center Larry Sanders will be sidelined for a minimum of six additional weeks after undergoing successful surgery to repair fractures near his right eye.

Sanders was injured when he was elbowed in the right eye by Houston's James Harden as the two went for a rebound in a Feb. 8 game. Sanders' surgery repaired right orbital bone fractures.

Sanders missed nearly two months early this season after tearing a thumb ligament in a fight at a Milwaukee nightclub.

In 23 games this season, Sanders has averaged 7.7 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.7 blocked shots in about 25 minutes per contest.
