Unrestricted free agent Ian Mahinmi will sign with the Wizards on a four-year, $64 million deal.
Another center breaking news on Twitter. Despite a fairly solid year, Mahinmi never really had a chance to stay with the Pacers after the Al Jefferson agreement. The Wizards get themselves a solid rim protector at age 29, and he showed he can play 26 minutes per game next season. Although, he has some major back problems at times, so durability is a concern. He won't have much fantasy value. Jul 2 - 8:13 PM

The Wizards, Spurs, Wolves, Hornets, Mavs, Blazers and Magic are interested in unrestricted free agent Ian Mahinmi.

The Pacers are very unlikely to bring him back now that they have Al Jefferson. Mahinmi isn't the sexiest big man, but he projects as a productive backup at age 29.
Jul 1 - 8:39 PM

The Pacers reportedly still hope to re-sign free agent center Ian Mahinmi.

A deal for Mahinmi seems highly unlikely after the Pacers agreed to terms on a three-year deal with Al Jefferson, while Myles Turner is expected to start at center next to Thaddeus Young at the four. There are still several teams in need of a quality center, so Mahinmi's time in Indiana is probably up.
Jul 1 - 1:05 PM

Ian Mahinmi said that he would like to re-sign with the Pacers as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

"I’m hoping to stay here," Mahinmi said. "It’s a very good system. It’s a very good organization." Mahinmi had a career-year as the Pacers' starting center, compiling averages of 9.3 points, 7.1 boards and 1.1 blocks per contest. It'll be interesting to see what kind of deal he can earn on the open market, but if the Pacers are unable to retain him, that would open up a ton of opportunity for Myles Turner.
May 3 - 6:02 PM

Ian Mahinmi scored 12 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 30 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

His back looked a lot better after playing just 18 minutes in Game 5. The Pacers had some better luck going big while the Raptors went small, so that's something to watch. Mahinmi is still only a borderline option in DFS for Game 7.
Apr 29 - 10:51 PM

Ian Mahinmi (back) was held to four points on 1-of-2 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors, adding six rebounds with two turnovers in 18 minutes.

He got into some foul trouble and never got it going. He was coming off a 22-point, 10-rebound performance in Game 4 with five assists, two steals and one block, but that was really his only bright spot in this series. In fact, if you ignore Game 4 then he only has averages of 4.3 points, 4.5 boards and 0.5 blocks. To be fair, his back has been an issue for a while now and he's playing at less than 100 percent.
Apr 26 - 9:53 PM

Ian Mahinmi (back) is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Raptors.

George Hill, Monta Ellis, Paul George and Myles Turner will join Mahinmi in the first-unit for tonight's contest. Mahinmi still isn't 100 percent, but he's on the radar in DFS after putting up 22 points, 10 boards, five assists, two steals and one block in Game 4.

Frank Vogel said that while Ian Mahinmi is still experiencing some soreness in his back, he's expected to play in Tuesday's Game 5 against the Raptors.

Mahinmi will continue to fight through the pain, and after putting up 22 points with a full line during Game 4's win, he'll be someone to consider as a potential DFS target.
Apr 26 - 4:36 PM

Ian Mahinmi (back) is listed as questionable to play against the Raptors on Tuesday.

He was on the injury report for Saturday and exploded for a 22-point gem in a win. Mahinmi likely won't be as good in Game 5, but he's certainly on the radar as a DFS center with his cheap price tag.
Apr 25 - 6:29 PM

Ian Mahinmi turned in the playoff game of his life during a Game 4 win over the Raptors on Saturday, scoring a playoff career-high 22 points with 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in 33 minutes.

Wow. It was the first double-double of his playoff career, as well. Mahinmi had been pushed around all series by Jonas Valanciunas while his back injury kept him limited until this gem. The move of Myles Turner playing next to him may have helped him, too. DFS owners might not want to chase this one too hard, but it certainly puts him on the board.
Apr 23 - 6:43 PM

Ian Mahinmi (lower back sprain) will play in Game 4 on Saturday vs. the Raptors.

The Pacers aren't just calling it a sore back anymore and have diagnosed him with a lower back sprain. Mahinmi hasn't played well in this series and is averaging just 4.3 points, 4.0 boards and 0.7 blocks in 20.7 minutes per game, so most fantasy owners should ignore him. If he struggles again on Saturday, Myles Turner will have to step up and Jordan Hill could enter the rotation as well.
Apr 23 - 12:54 PM

Ian Mahinmi (sore back) is questionable for Game 4 on Saturday vs. Toronto.

His back has been an issue in this series and he's only averaging 4.3 points, 4.0 boards and 0.7 blocks in 20.7 minutes per game. There has already been some talk that Jordan Hill could see some minutes in Game 4, while Myles Turner would also benefit if Mahinmi is held out.
Apr 23 - 10:39 AM

Ian Mahinmi (sore back) played 24 minutes on Thursday vs. the Raptors, scoring seven points with four rebounds and one block.

He didn't look right and his back was clearly giving him some problems. To make matters worse, Mahinmi took a really hard fall tonight as well. Mahinmi will likely try to keep fighting through the pain, but he's a little too risky to use in most formats due to his sore back. If he continues to be limited, Myles Turner could take some of his minutes.
Apr 21 - 11:34 PM

Ian Mahinmi (sore back) will be in the starting lineup for Game 3 against the Raptors.

Mahinmi is still experiencing some soreness in his back, but not enough to withhold him from a playoff game. He could be limited, so he's not the best DFS target tonight. George Hill, Monta Ellis, Paul George and Lavoy Allen will join Mahinmi in the starting five for Game 3.
Apr 21 - 5:53 PM

Ian Mahinmi (back) said that he's "good to go" for Thursday's Game 3 against the Raptors.

Mahinmi was a full participant during shootaround, and while he's still officially being listed as questionable, it would be surprising to see him sit out Game 3. Mahinmi has been dealing with back soreness since November, but he said on Wednesday that at this point there are no plans for him to undergo surgery during the offseason.
