Milwaukee Bucks guard O.J. Mayo is likely going to be in trouble for this one.

During Friday night's game against the New Orleans Pelicans, Mayo was caught on a hard screen by center Greg Stiemsma. Mayo was obviously upset about the screen, as he retaliated by punching Stiemsma in the throat.

UPDATE: Saturday, March 8, 2:40 p.m. ET

Chris Mannix from SI.com is reporting that Mayo has been suspended for one game for "forcibly striking" Stiemsma.
