O.J. Mayo sat out the Dallas Mavericks’ intrasquad scrimmage Saturday night because of a cut on his shooting hand suffered in a freak accident during the team’s trip to Europe.
“He slipped on some steps and fell down and actually took a big chunk of skin off of his hand,” coach Rick Carlisle said on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM. “Ninety-eight out of a hundred NBA players wouldn’t have played in the Barcelona game, but he wanted to play.
