I guess these are just the consequences the Milwaukee Bucks have to deal with for giving Larry Sanders a four-year, $44 million extension last summer. The power forward was suspended five games by the NBA after he tested positive for marijuana, going against the league's anti-drug policy.

“I apologize to the entire Bucks organization and our fans for being suspended five games for using marijuana in violation of the NBA Anti-Drug Program. I take full responsibility for my actions," Sanders said in a statement, via NBC.

The Bucks also released a statement.

“Larry Sanders has a responsibility to every person in our organization and our fans. We are all disappointed by the news of his suspension.”

Many were wondering what drug caused Sanders to receive a suspension from the NBA before this latest report was released. Sanders then admitted it was in fact weed.

Sanders, 25, has been out of time after dealing with some crazy injuries. First, it was a thumb injury after he got in a bar fight. Sanders then had a broken eye socket and eye surgery.

He has only played 23 games this season, averaging 7.7 points and 7.2 rebounds per contest.
