O.J. Mayo scored 17 points on 7-of-16 shooting (including a three) with zero rebounds, three assists and one steal in Friday's overtime win over the Wizards.
Mayo scored just seven points on Wednesday so tonight's line is a step in the right direction. He's been a real headache to own this season and there is a little bit of buy low appeal knowing things might begin to stabilize in Milwaukee after an injury-plagued start.

O.J. Mayo shot 2-of-8 from the field for seven points with one board, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes on Wednesday.
He has been a complete nightmare all season. Mayo is shooting just 44 percent in the paint this season, which is way down from his 52.7 percent last season with the Mavericks. He was starting to turn around his horrific season with a 19-point game on Monday, but it's been a turbulent ride along the way. Mayo has some upside and can be viewed as a buy-low guy as long as the price isn't something you're going to badly miss.

O.J. Mayo had 19 points, two rebounds, three assists, a steal and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss.
Mayo hit rock bottom 10 days ago but has finally started to right the ship. He's scored between 19 and 22 points in three of his last four games and is stealing the ball, as well as hitting 3-pointers. We don't trust Larry Drew or any of his players, but Mayo is looking good again, and should be in fantasy lineups when he's playing.

O.J. Mayo shot 9-of-14 from the field in Saturday's win over the Celtics for 22 points with three boards, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.
He was one of the most inefficient players in the NBA before tonight, shooting just 35.7 percent from the field for 12.6 points per game. The Bucks slow start has been mostly on Mayo since he's the only regular player that has been active for every game. The Bucks still haven't figured much out in their rotation, so Mayo's ceiling is going to be overshadowed quite a bit by all the bad games he's going to have this season.

O.J. Mayo finally showed up for the Bucks on Wednesday, hitting 9-of-23 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in 36 minutes.
Finally. He came in averaging just 6.8 points on 29 percent shooting over his previous four games, so this was a much needed turnaround. However, given how bad the Bucks are and the fact Larry Drew is still searching for answers, Mayo's next slump could come sooner than later. Tread carefully here, but if he was somehow dropped in your league (which we heard happened more than we'd care to admit), pick him up.

O.J. Mayo shot 1-of-4 from the field for five points with two boards, no assists and three turnovers in 25 minutes on Monday.
He didn't play in the last 15 minutes of the game and exited with the score at 86-57. Mayo has basically hit rock bottom here and his last four games have yielded averages of 6.8 points, 0.3 triples and 2.0 turnovers on 29.0 percent shooting. It's probably safe to assume he won't have the same type of production without a partner in crime like Dirk Nowitzki from last season, but he simply has to be better than this considering Milwaukee signed him to a big deal this summer.

Larry Drew said there could be a change coming to his starting lineup following Saturday's loss to the Bobcats.
"I hope it ticked some of them off," Drew said. "But if it didn't, I don't care. We're going to play the right way, and we're going to play hard whether they like it or not." He added there was "selfish" play, which makes sense after his starters combined for just four assists as a unit. The Bucks rank dead last in scoring per game, last in offensive efficiency and 26th in pace and 21st in turnovers, so it's not a stretch saying they have the worst offense in the NBA.

O.J. Mayo had a rough night against the Bobcats on Saturday with four points, one assist and one turnover in 22 minutes.
He checked out with six minutes left in the third quarter with the Bucks down 19 and never came back into the game. The milk has gone bad for Mayo over his last three games with just 7.3 points per game on 29.6 percent shooting. He should be Milwaukee's top scoring option, but will have a tough time matching his production from Dallas last season.

O.J. Mayo played in Friday's overtime loss to the Sixers after spraining his ankle in Wednesday's game, scoring nine points on 3-of-12 shooting (0-for-6 from deep) with zero rebounds and eight assists in 36 minutes.
Mayo did not have a steal or block and along with the rebounds and missed threes, it's pretty obvious he didn't have his normal stuff tonight. Owners should simply keep their ears to the ground for any news that the ankle will be an ongoing issue, and otherwise keep Mayo in their lineups.

O.J. Mayo hit just 3-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, three rebounds, one assist and four turnovers on Wednesday, and suffered a sprained left ankle in the fourth quarter.
Mayo says his ankle injury isn't a big deal and that he plans on starting on Friday at Philadelphia. No X-rays are scheduled, so owners should expect him to bounce back against the Sixers, as long as the injury doesn't flare up between now and then.
