The Milwaukee Bucks are missing two injured starters, guard Brandon Jennings and center Larry Sanders, for their game Friday night against the Atlanta Hawks.

Bucks spokesman Dan Smyczek says Jennings, who has a sore left Achilles, and Sanders, who has a sore lower back, will be on the inactive list. The team hasn't announced its revised starting lineup.

Jennings left in the first half Wednesday night in a 113-103 overtime loss in Orlando and didn't return. Sanders also didn't play in the second half after taking a hard fall.
