Ian Mahinmi acknowledged that the Wizards took a step back this season.
Mahinmi's full quote is worth digesting: "When you're talking about continuity, it's supposed to be better. You expect better. I feel like we didn't do better than last year," Mahinmi said. "It's hard. I love those guys, but we have our issues. Unless we work those issues out, we're gonna continue to struggle at times. We're gonna continue to not be consistent. We definitely have to have good communication this summer. Before looking elsewhere we have look at each other and be honest." And he didn't stop there, either. "I feel like we might not have identified the real issues...Unless we can honestly and genuinely talk and find solutions, we will have the trends that are going on right now." To be very clear, Mahinmi is spot on in his articulate assessment and Washington is going to be facing a very interesting summer ahead. The entire piece (linked below) is worth reading for additional quotes from Mahinmi, Markieff Morris, and Bradley Beal. Apr 29 - 2:27 PM

Ian Mahinmi returned from a one-game absence with a concussion and hit 1-of-3 shots for three points and eight rebounds in Tuesday's win over the Celtics.

If Marcin Gortat goes down in the playoffs at some point, Mahinmi deserves some attention, but is generally too unreliable to trust in fantasy.
Apr 10 - 11:14 PM

Ian Mahinmi (concussion) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

He's officially cleared the concussion protocol testing and will be available tonight, although it's unlikely he'll see much floor time with everyone else healthy.
Apr 10 - 6:23 PM

Ian Mahinmi (concussion) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Boston.

As of Sunday, Mahinmi had still not cleared concussion protocol. The priority for the Wiz is getting him back healthy for the start of the playoffs this weekend. Jason Smith will see additional minutes off the bench if Mahinmi is unable to play Tuesday.
Apr 10 - 10:32 AM

Ian Mahinmi has still not cleared the concussion protocol testing.

Unless he makes significant progress between now and Tuesday, it looks like Tuesday's game against the Celtics will be his second straight game on the sidelines. Jason Smith will see a slight uptick in minutes with Mahinmi out, but that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops.
Apr 8 - 2:26 PM

Ian Mahinmi (concussion) will not play on Friday against the Hawks.

He was elbowed by LeBron James and he'll have to go through the protocol. That should mean we see more Marcin Gortat while there could be some smaller lineups or Jason Smith.
Apr 6 - 6:01 PM

Ian Mahinmi double-doubled with 14 points and 11 rebounds on Wednesday, making 6-of-9 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs with one assist, one steal and one block in 26 minutes.

Mahinmi had six boards on the offensive end, and he was huge in the early stages of this game, producing easy buckets after an awful start. He's had two strong games in a row but tends to cool off as quickly as he heats up, so we're viewing him skeptically while Marcin Gortat is healthy.
Mar 14 - 11:30 PM

Ian Mahinmi finished with eight points, nine rebounds and a blocked shot over 24 minutes in Sunday's 98-95 loss against the Pacers.

The Wizards were searching for a playmaker with Bradley Beal struggling with his shot, and Mahinmi was an unlikely hero off the bench. He shot 3-of-5 from the field with an assist, a blocked shot and a plus-11 rating to keep his team in the game while flirting with a double-double in his brief playing time. Despite the solid effort he remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy leagues heading into the new week.
Mar 4 - 10:25 PM

Ian Mahinmi (illness) came off the bench for 17 points, eight rebounds, three blocks and one steal in 26 minutes during Wednesday's road win in New York.

The Wizards' reserve big man doesn't typically have fantasy appeal while Marcin Gortat is healthy. He outplayed Gortat tonight, though, and coach Scott Brooks rewarded him with big minutes -- Mahinmi managed to tie his season-highs in scoring and blocks, while falling one shy in rebounds. It's a welcome sight for the Wizards, but we're not buying it for fantasy purposes.
Feb 14 - 11:01 PM

Ian Mahinmi (illness) will play Wednesday vs. the Knicks, as expected.

Mahinmi wasn't able to make it through Saturday's game due to the illness, but he's had plenty of time to rest up, and should be in his regular 15-minute role tonight. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 14 - 6:11 PM

Ian Mahinmi (illness) is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

Mahinmi left Saturday's game early due to illness but was able to practice fully on Monday. Mahinmi will likely log his typical 15 minutes on Wednesday. He can be left on waivers in standard fantasy formats.
Feb 14 - 1:42 PM

Ian Mahinmi (illness) practiced in full on Monday.

The flu has been going around the Washington locker room and it's the reason why Mahinmi left Saturday's game early. Now that he's healthy again, expect to see him reprise his usual role as the backup center on Wednesday vs. the Knicks.
Feb 12 - 1:04 PM

Ian Mahinmi will not return on Saturday against the Bulls.

The Wizards are going to be thin and we're going to see a lot of Mike Scott to help out. Marcin Gortat should also get a couple more minutes.
Feb 10 - 9:44 PM

Ian Mahinmi played 23 minutes and hit 4-of-7 shots and 5-of-5 free throws for 13 points and four rebounds in Tuesday's loss to the Sixers.

Marcin Gortat was helpless against Joel Embiid and Mahinmi, along with Mike Scott and Kelly Oubre, were all effective off the bench. If Gortat is moved and the Wiz don't bring back a good center, Mahinmi could suddenly become relevant. Just keep an eye on him, as he's played well in three of his last four games.
Feb 7 - 12:34 AM

Ian Mahinmi hit 4-of-4 shots and 4-of-5 free throws for 12 points, seven rebounds and two steals before fouling out in 24 minutes of Monday's win over the Pacers.

Revenge is the only thing that makes sense for how this happened, as Mahinmi used to play for the Pacers and hadn't come this close to a double-double since Jan. 12. Consider it a fluke and leave Mahinmi right where he is, on the waiver wire.
