Mayo scored 22 points (8-14 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and collected one rebound in 24 minutes off the bench Thursday.

Mayo has turned up the juice recently, scoring double-digit points in each of his last four games while playing at least 24 minutes each contest. Deep league (14-teams or larger) could take a flier on Mayo. While it's unlikely to be sustained, for the time being, Mayo is an interesting add in deeper leagues. Just take note of the fact that it's a different Bucks bench player stepping up each week, and Mayo might just be the most desireable character on the carousel right now.

Mayo (Illness) came off the bench Tuesday and had four points and three assists in 18 minutes against the Suns.

Mayo's status for Tuesday was up in the air after missing the team's shootaround but managed to play. His 18 minutes on the floor was slightly less than his usual 24.3 minutes, but he should get back to that mark once he's fully healthy again.

Mayo (illness) will play in Tuesday's game, Fox Sports Wisconsin's Andrew Gruman reports.

He should slot into his typical role of instant offense off the bench. Mayo has scored in double figures in five of his last six games, although he struggles to offer much production in the non-scoring categories.

Mayo (illness) missed shootaround and is questionable to play Tuesday against the Suns, Andrew Gruman of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.

Mayo continues to battle the same flu-like symptoms that plagued him during Sunday's win over the Knicks. Both he and Jared Dudley (illness) are essentially game-time calls, and the Bucks could be shorthanded in the backcourt if one or both sit out. Check back before Tuesday's 8:00 PM ET tip for a final update.

Mayo (illness) will be available off the bench Sunday against the Knicks, CF Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

An illness kept Mayo out of shootaround, but after resting during the afternoon, the guard said he's feeling well enough to give it a go. Deploy him with caution in daily formats, however, as he'll play at less than 100 percent. During the month of December, Mayo averaged 11.3 points and 2.7 rebounds while shooting 42.1 percent from the field and 35.3 percent from three.

Mayo (illness) did not take part in shootaround, and will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Knicks, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Mayo does not play enough minutes for this decision to impact standard leagues directly, but if Mayo is out, teammate Jared Dudley could see enough minutes to be a solid play in both daily and season long leagues Sunday.

Mayo came off the bench on Wednesday to score 15 points (6-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt), to go along with three rebounds, four assists, two steals, and a block in 22 minutes.

Mayo has been playing increased minutes since Jabari Parker went down with injury and has been putting up useful counting stats as well. Over the past five games he has averaged 11.6 points, 1.8 three-pointers, 3.2 assists, and 3.6 rebounds. However, he is shooting 30.1% from the field during that span. If your team can stomach the field goal percentage, and needs additional scoring on the back end of your bench he's available in most leagues.

Mayo moved to the bench against the Hawks Friday. He scored 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and added five rebounds and three assists in 20 minutes.

The move to the bench did not appear to cost Mayo any court time, and Mayo was productive with the minutes he played. But since the Bucks completely blew out the Hawks, it remains possible that Mayo would have seen less action if the game were closer. If the move to the bench becomes permanent, then deep league managers need to pay careful attention to Mayo's workload over the coming days.

Mayo will come off the bench Friday against the Hawks.

Head coach Jason Kidd reportedly wants to see Mayo play with the second unit again. Though it's unclear if the demotion to the bench will be permanent, his recent struggles are likely the cause of the move. Kendall Marshall will receive the start in the backcourt alongside Brandon Knight on Friday.

Mayo scored 19 points (7-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and landed two rebounds with one assist and a steal in 23 minutes of action on Thursday against the Kings.

Over his last four games Mayo has played as much as 36 minutes and as little as 11 minutes. This is not something you want when building a fantasy team. Predictably and reliably are something good fantasy teams exploit - this is a case of neither.
