The NBA has suspended 23-year old shooting guard O.J. Mayo for the next 10 games due to violating the league’s anti-drug policy. Mayo says that an over the counter supplement led to his failed test. It was allegedly a muscle builder. Mayo has played in 45 games (15 starts) for the Grizzlies so far this year and he is averaging 28.8 minutes, 12.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 steal per game. This is a big loss for the Grizzlies as Mayo was providing a spark off the bench offensively this year. But, he will likely get further into Lionel Hollins’ Dog House because of this.
