O.J. Mayo is not in uniform for Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks.
His offseason started a long time ago and it couldn't have ended soon enough. Mayo likely had more double cheeseburgers than double-doubles this year, which isn't saying much considering he had zero double-doubles. Apr 16 - 8:59 PM

O.J. Mayo is not in uniform for Monday's game vs. the Raptors.

The Bucks haven't really bothered updating Mayo at all and didn't even disclose his status tonight, so we're just assuming he's out. Only one more game after tonight, Bucks fans.
Apr 14 - 7:57 PM

O.J. Mayo (ankle) will not play on Friday night.

We really wish the team would just rule Mayo out for the season.
Apr 11 - 7:07 PM

O.J. Mayo (ankle) will not play against the Pacers on Wednesday.

The Pacers are resting their five starters, so this news isn't exactly at that magnitude. The Bucks haven't really updated Mayo's status outside of saying he's not playing in games, so it's safe to assume he's out for the season. He won't be worth drafting in fantasy leagues next season.
Apr 9 - 6:25 PM

O.J. Mayo (ankle) will not play against the Raptors on Saturday.

There has been no news on his ankle and how much it's bothering him, so it's probably safe to assume he's been shut down for the season. Mayo has a lot of work to do to turn his career around after a disastrous 2013-14.
Apr 5 - 7:36 PM

O.J. Mayo (ankle) did not play on Friday vs. the Bulls.

His ankle injury didn't look serious two Mondays ago, so there's probably more to this story than just that span. Mayo and Bucks have been a disaster this season. Fantasy owners won't be licking their chops to draft him in any format next year.
Apr 4 - 7:33 PM

O.J. Mayo (ankle) will not play against the Heat on Wednesday.

The last time Mayo was hurt, his illness turned into a conditioning issue and there's a good chance that's what happened here. He's been one of the most criticized players this season and the Mavericks look pretty smart for letting the Bucks pick him up in the offseason.
Apr 2 - 6:46 PM

O.J. Mayo (ankle) did not play on Monday against the Pistons, as expected.

Mayo dressed as an emergency player and his status for the rest of the season is tenuous, at best.
Mar 31 - 11:19 PM

O.J. Mayo (ankle) will dress vs. the Pistons on Monday and is not expected to play.

In other words, he's just an emergency guy because the Bucks are running out of bodies in their backcourt. Mayo has been one of the biggest letdowns on the season and obviously the Bucks regret signing him over the summer. At least they'll have a lot of ping-pong balls. Ramon Sessions will get some serious run tonight.
Mar 31 - 7:01 PM

O.J. Mayo (ankle) is questionable to face the Pistons on Monday.

He suffered an ankle sprain last Monday and missed two games because of it. Mayo has missed games earlier this year for conditioning, so not being at practice suggests he's probably not ready to play much. Even if he does suit up, he's a bit unlikely to top 25 minutes. Ramon Sessions is logging major minutes while Giannis Antetokounmpo could get more run tonight.
Mar 31 - 5:34 PM

O.J. Mayo (ankle) will not play vs. the Heat on Saturday night.

This will be his second game out of the lineup after an ankle sprain from Monday. Mayo's conditioning has been a huge issue this season and playing him at less than 100 percent is not an option. The Bucks are going to have to get creative tonight and we might see more D.J. Stephens while Brandon Knight and Ramon Sessions will be very busy.
Mar 29 - 6:49 PM

O.J. Mayo (ankle) will not play in Thursday's game vs. the Lakers.

He landed on someone's foot during Monday's game but seems to have only tweaked his ankle, and he doesn't expect the injury to keep him out for long. Giannis Antetokounmpo should get solid playing time as the Bucks' primary reserve guard in what is sure to be a high-scoring, defense-optional matchup.
Mar 27 - 7:14 PM

The Bucks did not update the status of O.J. Mayo following his injury during Monday night's game.

He looked to have tweaked an ankle, but it's a guessing game until we get an update. The Bucks have been less forthcoming with their injuries than Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, so this isn't a surprise. Chances are Mayo is fine and we would consider him closer to probable for Thursday's game against the Lakers. In other Mayo news, Rudy Gay blamed Mayo's weight gain on where he lived. "I guess when you’re hurt in Wisconsin, you eat," Gay said.
Mar 25 - 11:46 AM

O.J. Mayo suffered an apparent injury in the second half of Monday's game vs. the Clippers and did not return.

The injury didn't look too bad and he was able to walk off the court under his own power. Mayo isn't exactly in peak physical form, so coach Larry Drew probably didn't want to throw him back out there at 100 percent. He scored eight points in the early going and didn't add anymore with three boards, one assist and two 3-pointers in 17 minutes. Stay tuned for an update.
Mar 25 - 12:45 AM

O.J. Mayo drained 9-of-14 shots with two 3-pointers on Sunday, finishing with 21 points and four assists in his first game since March 10.

Mayo's conditioning is a concern and he was coming off six straight DNP-CDs. His tenure with the Bucks has been one disappointing chapter after another and there's little reason to anticipate a breakout in the final weeks of a doomed season, notwithstanding tonight's blowout-driven performance.
