There are only three guarantees in life: death, taxes, and Scott Skiles laying down the law.
The Milwaukee Bucks coach left power forward Larry Sanders at home for the team's preseason game against the Toronto Raptors on Monday due to an unspecified "team conduct issue," according to the Journal Sentinel.
Bucks forward Larry Sanders has been disciplined by the team, ruled out of Monday night's game at Toronto for what coach Scott Skiles termed "a team conduct issue."
Sanders did not make the trip with the team to Toronto but will be back for Thursday's preseason game at Charlotte, Skiles said. Skiles would not elaborate after the team shootaround at the Air Canada Centre and neither would Bucks general manager John Hammond.
Sanders is no stranger to losing his mind on the court.
Skiles is a classic disciplinarian who has butted heads with players before, including forward Stephen Jackson last season, who found himself moved at the trade deadline.
