O.J. Mayo was having a sterling night until he came down awkwardly late in the third quarter and came up favoring his right ankle. Mayo limped to the bench, but returned early in the fourth quarter. “It’s OK,” Mayo said. “But get to me tomorrow morning. That’s how those things go.” Mayo said he will get treatment overnight and see how it feels Monday at practice in Milwaukee.” “I think he’s sore, but he went back in and seemed to be OK,” Carlisle said. “He’s pretty tough. He hasn’t missed anything all year, so I was encouraged he was able to go back in the game. I’m sure it’ll be sore, but hopefully he’ll be OK for Tuesday.” Also on the injury front, Shawn Marion missed his second consecutive game with a bruised left calf muscle. Marion said he was hoping to go through practice Monday in Milwaukee and try to play against the Bucks on Tuesday. Marion suffered the injury in the first quarter of Wednesday’s win over Houston. He sat out at Detroit on Friday, as well as Sunday’s match with Minnesota. “It’s sore to the touch,” Marion said. “I can feel it when I walk.”
