O.J. Mayo (hamstring) returned from a two-game absence on Saturday against the Jazz, scoring eight points in 27 minutes off the bench.
He also added six boards, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers, and he could see a small bump in playing time moving forward if Jared Dudley (knee) needs to miss any additional action. Mayo was averaging 11.9 points, 2.8 assists, 2.6 boards and 1.4 3-pointers on the season prior to tonight's game, so he is worth holding onto in deeper leagues. Feb 28 - 11:55 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play on Saturday against the Jazz.

The Bucks are going to need his offense off the bench with Jared Dudley sidelined with a knee injury, so owners in need of scoring and 3-pointers should give him a look. Mayo has missed the last two games due to injury, so we will let you know how his hamstring holds up after the game.
Feb 28 - 7:46 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play against the Lakers on Friday.

The Bucks called Mayo sitting on Wednesday as "rest" but it certainly raised a red flag because they weren't on the front or back end of a back-to-back set. Mayo tweaked his hamstring on Feb. 20, but he did play 31.0 minutes per game in his two following outings. With Mayo out, Jerryd Bayless will log more minutes at shooting guard which may allow Tyler Ennis to get minutes close to 20. Khris Middleton should also have a higher usage rate, which helped him get to 19 points on Wednesday. Mayo is a tough player to own now that he's not healthy.

O.J. Mayo (rest) will not play against the 76ers on Wednesday.

Interesting. The Bucks played their last game on Monday and their next game isn't until Friday, so this is a surprise. Mayo was playing well and even logged 34 minutes on Monday. With him out, Jerryd Bayless should log the majority of his minutes at shooting guard while Khris Middleton may also play a tad more.
Feb 25 - 6:24 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) is available to play against the Hawks on Sunday.

He tweaked his hamstring on Friday and did play well, scoring 13 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer. Considering Jerryd Bayless will play almost all of his minutes at point guard, Mayo could get close to 30 minutes.
Feb 21 - 3:34 PM

O.J. Mayo tweaked his hamstring in a win over the Nuggets on Friday, finishing with 13 points, four boards, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

We will go ahead and consider him questionable for Sunday's game against the Hawks, but we should have another update after he is evaluated on Saturday. Mayo has scored in double digits in nine out of his last ten games, so hopefully this injury won't force him to miss any action. Expect Jared Dudley, Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo to all see more opportunities on offense if Mayo misses any time.

O.J. Mayo hit 6-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 21 points, three rebounds, four assists and a steal on Wednesday.

He has been playing pretty well lately, hitting double figures in 15 of his last 17 games, and averaging 15.6 points, 2.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.6 3-pointers on 41 percent shooting over his last five games.
Feb 12 - 12:22 AM

O.J. Mayo scored 15 points on 4-of-10 shooting (no threes) with two rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Mayo hit 7-of-8 free throws to offset the lack of versatility here and probably spared himself a cut in the places he's owned. He has been shooting a bit over his head lately so owners shouldn't be surprised if he eases off the accelerator.
Feb 10 - 1:39 AM

O.J. Mayo hit just 5-of-13 shots for 11 points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Mayo has hit a three in eight straight games and he's been shooting a bit over his head lately, so it wouldn't be surprising if he eased off the accelerator a bit. He's been worth owning and having in lineups for the last couple of weeks, and the Bucks' rotation has thinned out enough that one more major injury to the team could keep him in a significant role going forward.
Feb 7 - 1:43 AM

O.J. Mayo did it all on Wednesday, hitting 8-of-15 shots and five 3-pointers for 21 points, two rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in an overtime win against the Lakers.

The Lakers are just horrendous against opposing guards, which is why Giannis Antetokounmpo (career-high 25), Brandon Knight (near triple-double on one leg) and Mayo all went nuts tonight.
Feb 5 - 12:29 AM

O.J. Mayo was ejected for two technical fouls during Monday's game against the Raptors.

It's not great timing with Brandon Knight out. The Bucks are going to have to get creative and Jerryd Bayless has a chance to clear 30 minutes tonight. Expect to see more Jared Dudley tonight. Mayo finished with seven points, one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer. He's worth a look in standard leagues.
Feb 2 - 8:28 PM

O.J. Mayo's hot streak continued on Saturday during a 95-88 win over the Bucks with 17 points, seven rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

In his previous 10, Mayo averaged 14.2 points, 3.1 boards, 3.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.9 treys on 53.3 percent from the field in 25.7 minutes. Mayo's ceiling isn't going to be too high because he doesn't play big minutes, but he's doing enough to put on the end of your bench in a standard league.
Feb 1 - 2:04 AM

O.J. Mayo kept it going against the Pistons on Saturday with 20 points, three rebounds, three assists, two steals and four 3-pointers on 8-of-14 from the field.

He's been in a bizarro world lately. O.J. Miracle Whip? Kidding aside, Mayo has a Kyle Korver like 70.8 effective field goal percentage in his last six games, averaging 15.2 points, 2.5 boards, 2.5 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.5 blocks and 2.5 treys. This is probably the hottest he'll be, but he's been too good to ignore. If you need scoring, give him a long look.
Jan 24 - 10:51 PM

O.J. Mayo scored 12 points with two rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes against the Jazz on Thursday.

He is playing well these days and has surprisingly been consistent. Over his last five, Mayo averaged 14.2 points, 2.4 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.6 steals and 2.2 treys on 58.7 percent from the field. His ceiling is capped because he's only playing 24.2 minutes per game this season, but he's worth a look if you need scoring and treys.
Jan 22 - 11:52 PM

O.J. Mayo scored 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes on Monday.

Mayo has been producing lately with averages over his last six games of 13.0 points, 2.2 threes, 2.5 boards, 2.8 assists and unsustainable levels of shooting the ball. When the shooting cools off the bottom could (and should) fall through, and he's still only a deep league asset until he can produce without the fluky 54.7 percent shooting from the field.
