The injury bug has struck Milwaukee again as it has been reported by Yahoo!’s The Vertical that Bucks guard O.J. Mayo will miss the remainder of the season due to a fractured ankle suffered Thursday morning in his home. The injury was caused when Mayo accidentally tripped and fell down some stairs. It is not known whether or not Mayo will need surgery, but it is a possibility.

Mayo has been a versatile piece of the Bucks offense this year, starting in 24 games, the majority of which were at the point guard position. In 41 games this season, Mayo is averaging a career low 7.8 points per game, and shooting just 32 percent from behind the arc, also a career worst.

An already depleted backcourt with the loss of Michael Carter-Williams last week and Greivis Vasquez still recovering from ankle surgery, the Bucks will look more to their bench. Head coach Jason Kidd has already spoken out about 21-year old point guard Tyler Ennis, saying he will see extended minutes in the team’s final games backing up Jerryd Bayless. Ennis posted eight points and five assists in 26 minutes in Wednesday’s win versus the Heat.

Mayo’s injury will also open opportunities for us to see more of Giannis Antetokounmpo running the point guard spot. Giannis has been much more aggressive in facilitating the offense as of late, averaging 22.2 points and 8.2 assists in the month of March.
