O.J. Mayo Suspended After Violating NBA Drug Policy

O.J. Mayo was suspended for 10 games after violating the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program. Mayo tested positive for dehydroepiandrosterone, a type of steroid. He apologized to his family, friends and teammates for his actions. He will be eligible to return Feb. 15 vs. Philadelphia.

This season with the Grizzlies, Mayo has averaged 12.2 points this season, 2.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.4 3PTM per game. His scoring is down this year, compared to last season where he finished the season averaging 17.5 points.

With Mayo out for 10 games, Sam Young and Tony Allen will be the beneficiaries of increased playing time. Both of these players will see boosts in fantasy value as long as Mayo is out. Mayo's suspension should not have a huge negative impact on the Grizzlies losing season so far.
