O.J. Mayo has been suspended one game for striking Greg Stiemsma in the throat on Friday.
Mayo won't suit up vs. the Wizards on Saturday and it's just as well for fantasy owners, as he's been lousy all season and is averaging just 9.8 points over the past month. Nothing about his play suggests that he'll turn things around in the Bucks' final 20 games.

O.J. Mayo may face a suspension for hitting Greg Stiemsma in the throat during Friday's game.
Mayo lashed out in obvious anger and it wouldn't be surprising to see the league slap him with a one-game suspension, especially since the contact was close to Stiemsma's head. He's averaging 6.8 points on 36.1 percent shooting in the Bucks' past five games, and continues to disappoint after signing a three-year, $24 million contract last summer.

O.J. Mayo was ejected in the second quarter of Friday's game vs. the Pelicans for a flagrant-2 foul.
He gave Greg Stiemsma an elbow after the two players got tangled up after a missed shot. Mayo played just 20 minutes on Wednesday and he'll finish with no points tonight. The league might look at this for a suspension, but his infraction wasn't as bad as Ersan Ilyasova's from Wednesday.

O.J. Mayo scored eight points against the Kings on Wednesday with three boards, one assist and one turnover in 20 minutes.
He's cracked the 24-minute mark just once since returning from his conditioning issues back on Feb. 20 and he's pretty much useless on anything except as a catch-and-shoot player. The Bucks offense isn't good enough to get Mayo open looks, so there is little reason to have confidence for a guy who was once traded for Kevin Love on draft day.

O.J. Mayo hit 4-of-7 shots for nine points in 23 minutes on Saturday.
He didn't hit a 3-pointer and all the positive vibes he was giving after scoring 14 and 25 points over his last two games were erased tonight. Feel free to own him, but expect a ton of inconsistence as long as he's coming off the crowded Bucks bench.

O.J. Mayo made 5-of-14 from the field for 14 points vs. the Pacers on Thursday with one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes.
He doesn't have shred of an interior game and none of his 14 shots have come from inside of 12 feet tonight. Mayo's jump shot has been falling and clearly coach Larry Drew is using him as a catch-and-shoot guy in his offense. Still, he's taken nine triples in each of his last two games and he seems like he's a good bet to hit a couple per night. If you're looking for triples and don't care about anything else, he's worth a look.

O.J. Mayo exploded for 25 points on 8-of-14 shooting with seven threes, three assists and a steal in Monday's cakewalk over the Sixers.
The world's biggest disclaimer applies but maybe Mayo is taking his conditioning seriously and is ready to make a contribution. He logged 35 minutes off the bench tonight and even though we don't trust him as far as we can heave the heavyset shooting guard, he's worth a look for the brave out there.

O.J. Mayo played 17 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday with eight points, two boards, one assist, two 3-pointers and five fouls on 3-of-8 shooting.
As expected, Brandon Knight coming back hurt Mayo's offensive output and he looks extremely out of shape. He's going to be one of this season's prime examples for guys who lose their work ethic after signing a multiple-year deal. Fantasy owners should be able to do better.

O.J. Mayo returned from a 10-game absence due to flu-like symptoms and conditioning issues, shooting 5-of-8 from the field for 11 points with three boards and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.
While he did look like he put on a couple pounds, his conditioning seemed better than it was before his absence. That said, he still showed no desire to get to the basket and was taking a lot of contested shots. His minutes tonight had a little bit to do with the Bucks needing bodies, so most owners might have a tough time making a cut for Mayo after his first good game in over a month. It's worth mentioning Mayo was tying his shoe on defense while in a half-court set, which should be all over the low-light reel over the weekend.
