Update: Mayo has suffered a fracture in his right ankle and will miss the remainder of the season, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
Analysis: There is a chance that Mayo receives surgery on the fractured leg later this week, but no specifics have been released. The 28-year-old suffered the injury sometime this week and will join Steve Novak and Michael Carter-Williams on the bench, as they have all suffered season-ending injuries in the past couple of weeks. Mayo ends his season averaging 7.8 points, 2.9 assists, 2.6 rebounds, 1.2 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 27 minutes per game during 41 games. He emerged as the starting point guard midway through the season due to injuries and lackluster play from Michael Carter-Williams and Jerryd Bayless. He is in the final year of his contract with Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee Bucks have lost guard O.J. Mayo for the rest of the season after he broke his right ankle Thursday morning going down a set of stairs at his home.
General manager John Hammond said Mayo fractured his ankle after he "accidentally tripped descending his stairs." Mayo averaged 7.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.17 steals in 26.6 minutes during 41 games this season for the Bucks, who are last in the Central Division with a record of 27-38.
