Larry Sanders has missed the Milwaukee Bucks' last three games with a back injury.  As he continues to rest and try to get back on the court, Sanders is concerned about his diagnosis.  He'd like to know if there is something more serious going on, so he intends to get a second opinion.NBA.com had the news.  Sanders is concerned that he didn't seem to be healing, and wanted someone else to look at him.  The team agreed, and they will look to set something up for him.  Sanders wants to make sure there is not a bigger issues that he and the team should be concerned about as he feels he should be getting better quicker."We're probably going to make arrangements for him to go see somebody," Bucks coach Jim Boylan said before Milwaukee hosted Washington.Sanders is a third-year center for the Bucks.  He was drafted out of UCU in the first round of the 2010 draft.  In his career, Sanders has averaged 5.3 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.  So far this season, he has averaged 8.5 points and 8.5 boards per game.  Sanders had been getting more minutes this season - the most of his career, actually.  Perhaps, the additional time on the court put an unexpected strain on his body.
