Jason Kidd said that he expects O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) to play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.
Mayo was able to get through a full practice on Thursday unscathed, so it sounds like he'll be ready to get back on the court Tuesday night following an 11 game absence. Mayo will likely be eased back into the rotation in Milwaukee, and with averages of just 9.1 points, 1.2 three-pointers and 1.2 steals on 37.4 percent shooting on the year, he can safely remain on the wire in most leagues.

O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Jazz.

Mayo was able to go through a full practice with the Bucks on Thursday, and head coach Jason Kidd said that he's looking good, so at least Mayo is getting close to a return after spending half of January on the sidelines. However, O.J. is averaging just 9.1 points, 1.2 steals and 1.2 three-pointers per game on 37.4 percent shooting, so even when he does get back on the court, there's not much reason to own him in most formats.
Feb 4 - 6:40 PM

O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) will not play against the Trail Blazers on Tuesday.

Mayo will miss his tenth consecutive game on Tuesday and looks to be out until at least the All-Star break as he is still without a timetable. Jerryd Bayless and Rashad Vaughn will continue to see an uptick in minutes, but neither carries much fantasy value beyond deeper leagues even with Mayo out.
Feb 2 - 10:42 AM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play on Monday vs. the Kings.

He has no timetable for a return and could miss more games. Jerryd Bayless has been getting most of Mayo's minutes, while rookie Rashad Vaughn has also been in the rotation. Leave Mayo on the wire.
Jan 31 - 10:05 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Heat.

He hasn't played since January 13 and belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues at this point. Jerryd Bayless and Rashad Vaughn will continue to pick up some extra run in Mayo's absence, with Bayless offering the most upside.
Jan 29 - 7:35 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

He won't get a revenge game against a former team and he doesn't sound like he's close to a return. Jerryd Bayless will get some combo guard minutes, but is only worth a look in deep leagues..
Jan 27 - 5:35 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will miss Tuesday's game against the Heat.

Mayo will miss his third consecutive game on Tuesday and could continue to miss more games going forward. Mayo can be dropped in most fantasy leagues, while Jerryd Bayless and Rashad Vaughn will get extra minutes with Mayo out.
Jan 19 - 10:42 AM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

He has dealt with a slew of hamstring strains and will likely miss more games going forward. Jerryd Bayless (ankle) is back for this one and should get some combo guard minutes while Rashad Vaughn should get run, too.
Jan 16 - 5:10 PM

Jerryd Bayless (ankle) and O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play against the Hawks on Friday.

The Bucks are going to be thin at point guard and should give some minutes to Tyler Ennis tonight. There should also be more play-making chances for Giannis Anttokounmpo and Khris Middleton. Mayo is a drop candidate in almost all leagues.
Jan 15 - 6:34 PM

O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) will not return to Wednesday's game.

Mayo will finish with two points in 12 minutes of action. He came in with a hamstring injury but it's unclear if he aggravated it, or if he simply wasn't feel well enough to continue. Either way, the oft-injured veteran should be considered very questionable for Friday's home game vs. the Hawks. His absence leaves more minutes available for Rashad Vaughn.
Jan 13 - 8:39 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) is a game-time decision to face the Wizards on Wednesday.

He returned from a hamstring injury on Tuesday, but Mayo isn't exactly the most durable player around. He is still likely going to play, but his fantasy value isn't great anyway. If he doesn't play, expect Rashad Vaughn to get his minutes.
Jan 13 - 6:09 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Bulls, scoring five points with four assists, one board, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

He shot just 2-of-9 from the field, but at least he didn't turn the ball over. Mayo is going to see time at both guard spots off the bench, but he is only worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues until further notice.
Jan 13 - 12:31 AM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play on Tuesday vs. the Bulls.

He missed 11 games earlier in the season with a hamstring issue, so it must not be nearly as serious this time. Mayo will see time at the one and two off the bench, so Tyler Ennis may not see the floor vs. the Bulls. Rookie Rashad Vaughn will play less as well.
Jan 12 - 7:05 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) is a game-time call against the Bulls on Tuesday.

Hamstring injuries tend to linger like we saw with Mayo earlier in the season, so expect the Bucks to be cautious if he isn't 100 percent. If Mayo is held out, Tyler Ennis will be the backup point guard and Rashad Vaughn will get some extra burn off the bench.
Jan 12 - 6:33 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play on Sunday vs. the Knicks.

Mayo missed 11 straight games at the start of the season due to a hamstring issue, so this is a concern. He said that he had no lift in the fourth quarter of Friday's game vs. the Mavericks, so don't expect the Bucks to rush his return. Mayo has been running the point for the second unit, so Tyler Ennis could get some minutes on Sunday. Rashad Vaughn could get some extra playing time as well.
