Larry Sanders has been suspended for the second time in the space of a year after the Milwaukee Bucks centre was banned without pay for a minimum of 10 games for violating the NBA's anti-drug program.

The NBA made the announcement on Friday, with the suspension effective as of Monday, when the Bucks entertain the Toronto Raptors in Milwaukee.

Sanders will remain sidelined until he is in full compliance with the league's treatment program.

The 26-year-old violated the NBA's anti-drug program last season, handed a five-game suspension for using marijuana.

This latest sanction comes amid rumours Sanders is contemplating retirement.

Sanders has not taken to the court since December 23 due to personal reasons.

He is averaging 7.3 points and 6.1 rebounds in 27 games in 2014-15.
