Mayo saw a season-high 29 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Kings, finishing with 12 points (5-15 FG, 2-12 3Pt), three rebounds, and two assists. The three-point attempts are pretty staggering for a bench player, but Mayo has lived almost exclusively outside the arc in his four games since returning from a hamstring injury that had bothered him since the preseason. A whopping 22 of his 28 attempts from the field have come from beyond the three-point line, so it looks like coach Jason Kidd will continue to turn to him as the Bucks' designated gunner off the bench. Expect an occasional big game from Mayo when he happens to catch fire, but he'll likely score very inconsistently from night to night.
Mayo (hamstring) will be available Thursday night against Cleveland, CF Gardner of the Journal Sentinel reports. Mayo is yet to play this season due to a hamstring injury that's plagued him since training camp. After sitting out Milwaukee's first 11 games, he'll make his debut Thursday in what will likely be limited minutes off the bench. Both Jerryd Bayless and Greivis Vasquez have played well of late, so it's unclear just how many minutes will be available to Mayo once he's back in game shape.
Mayo (hamstring) is expected to make his season debut Thursday in Cleveland, Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio reports. Mayo is yet to play this season due a hamstring issue that's lingered from the preseason, but he's been accelerating his activity level of late, and the expectation is that he'll be available off the bench Thursday. Both Greivis Vasquez an Jerryd Bayless have seen big minutes off the bench behind Michael Carter-Williams, who's missed a few games due to injury, and it's unclear exactly where Mayo immediately fits in.
Mayo (hamstring) is out Tuesday against the Wizards, CF Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal reports. Although Mayo was listed as probable to play Tuesday, he was sent home Monday to see a doctor and hopefully will rejoin the team in Cleveland. The shooting guard has been suffering from a hamstring injury and has missed the Bucks' first 10 games of the season, but if he returns and proves to be healthy, his minutes will increase and Tyler Ennis, Rashad Vaughn, and Chris Copeland will see decreased minutes in result.
Mayo (hamstring) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards, Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times reports. Mayo has missed the Bucks' first 10 games of the season due to the hamstring strain, but after apparently increasing his activities in practices the last few days, it looks like he may be ready to make his debut. It was thought that Mayo would initially open the season in a starting role due to the early absence of Jabari Parker, and although Parker has been recently sidelined again by to a mid-foot sprain, it's likely that Mayo will now come off the bench in light of the extensive time he's missed. Still, if Mayo proves healthy in his return to action, his minutes could increase steadily and may result in the likes of Tyler Ennis, Rashad Vaughn, and Chris Copeland losing their spots in the rotation.
