The Milwaukee Bucks aren't sure if Larry Sanders' current absence with illness will be a long-term issue.

Zaza Pachulia and John Henson have played well at center in Sanders' absence.

"He won't start when he does come back," Jason Kidd said. "He's got to work his way back in...he's been out for a little bit here.

"So whenever he does come back, we want to make sure he's ready to go.

"But with Z (Pachulia) and John playing the way they are, he's going to have to work himself back into the lineup."
