Milwaukee Bucks guard O.J. Mayo was suspended one game without pay for forcibly striking New Orleans Pelicans center Greg Stiemsma in the throat, the NBA announced.

Mayo was assessed a Flagrant Foul 2 and ejected with 1:52 remaining in the first quarter of Milwaukee's 112-104 loss to the Pelicans on Friday at Smoothie King Center.

Mayo will serve the suspension Saturday night when the Bucks host the Washington Wizards at BMO Harris Bradley Center.
