O.J. Mayo looked terrific against the Celtics on Friday with 24 points, five rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers on 9-of-13 from the field in 29 minutes.

It's his highest scoring game since October and it came almost out of nowhere. Mayo has an abysmal March, scoring just 2.8 points per game on 19.2 percent from the field. He did play 27 minutes on Wednesday and it looks like all that rest last month helped him. If you're sick of the guy at the end of your bench, give him a look. The Bucks only have one game (Saturday) until Wednesday, though.
Apr 4 - 12:31 AM

O.J. Mayo was effective during his 27 minutes off the bench during a 95-91 win against the Bulls on Wednesday, scoring 13 points with two rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

In his previous 10 games since the break, Mayo made just 31.0 percent from the field, so making 5-of-9 from the field was a massive improvement. Still, he's been dealing with a hamstring ailment since February and we'll need to see it again before suggesting him as a pickup. Just keep an eye on him going forward.
Apr 2 - 1:54 AM

O.J. Mayo returned to action against the Pacers on Thursday, scoring three points with one rebound, four assists and one 3-pointer.

He didn't look too bad considering his hamstring issue has bothered him for most of the post-break run. Still, Mayo is likely going to have a 20-minute cap for the next week or so. Keep him on the wire.
Mar 27 - 12:09 AM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Thursday against the Pacers.

Mayo was limited to just six minutes when he returned to action on Tuesday, but head coach Jason Kidd said he'll "add minutes" for Mayo tonight. That's a pretty vague quote, but we doubt Mayo would see his minutes much higher than the 20s. With a tough matchup against the Pacers, and a lot of uncertainty around how much floor time Mayo will see tonight, he's not a great option in most leagues.
Mar 26 - 6:28 PM

O.J. Mayo is probable to play against the Pacers on Thursday after going through practice on Wednesday.

He played just six minutes on Tuesday in his return to the lineup. The Bucks are unlikely to play Mayo more than 10-12 minutes on Thursday, so keep him on the wire.
Mar 25 - 5:04 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) returned to action on Tuesday, going scoreless with two rebounds and one assist in six minutes vs. the Heat.

He didn't check in until the end of the third quarter, presumably because Jason Kidd wanted more offensive weapons on the court with his Bucks trailing by seven points. Mayo has suffered a few setbacks with his hamstring in recent weeks and fantasy owners should view him with skepticism as long as he's playing limited minutes off the bench.
Mar 24 - 11:04 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

The Bucks will make a decision on Mayo after he goes through warm-ups, but even if he is able to go, he'll likely be on a minutes restriction which will really limit his upside. Mayo belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Mar 24 - 6:30 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

Even if he does return, the Bucks are unlikely to give him more than minutes in the teens. Mayo is not worth owning in almost any league. Tyler Ennis should remain in the rotation while Jerryd Bayless gets some extra run.
Mar 23 - 3:36 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) and Jared Dudley (back) have been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Nets, and both players are without an official timetable to return.

With both Mayo and Dudley unavailable, Giannis Antetokounmpo will get all the run he can handle with Jerryd Bayless and Tyler Ennis seeing extending minutes off the bench. Bayless can be viewed as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues, but Ennis doesn't offer much value at all. Mayo and Dudley can be cut in all leagues.

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play against the Spurs on Wednesday.

He is likely out for a while and the Bucks won't be rushing him back. Jerryd Bayless and Tyler Ennis will benefit most with Bayless holding much more fantasy value. Mayo can be dropped basically everywhere.

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play against the Spurs on Wednesday.

He is likely out for a while and the Bucks won't be rushing him back. Jerryd Bayless and Tyler Ennis will benefit most with Bayless holding much more fantasy value. Mayo can be dropped basically everywhere.
Mar 18 - 2:34 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday, as he's in Milwaukee receiving treatment.

Mayo's hamstring has bothered him for weeks and he may have aggravated it in just seven minutes of action on Saturday. Whether he'll return for Wednesday's home game is unclear, but his inability to stay healthy rules him out as a fantasy option at this critical juncture of the season.
Mar 17 - 7:26 PM

OJ Mayo (hamstring) was sent home for treatment.

Jason Kidd made the decision, and it doesn't sound like Mayo is close to returning after Kidd said the shooting guard is "struggling." Hamstring injuries tend to linger, and it sounds like Mayo may have come back too quickly from his latest aggravation. This is going to be an issue for the remainder of the season, leaving Mayo's upside severely capped in any format.
Mar 16 - 1:33 PM

O.J. Mayo played seven minutes on Saturday and missed all three shots from the field.

He didn't have any other stats in this game. Mayo can be dropped in just about all leagues because he's probably not going to be able to shake the hamstring injury.
