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.
Feb 5 - 10:36 PM

Ian Mahinmi finished with a season-high 17 points, eight rebounds and three blocked shots in Friday's 125-119 victory against the Magic.

Mahimni also chipped in with an assist, a steal and just one turnover in his 21 minutes while connecting on 7-of-8 from the field. He saw some extended minutes with Marcin Gortat in a bit of foul trouble, excelling against a rather soft Orlando middle still missing Nikola Vucevic (hand). Despite the solid performance, Mahinmi remains nothing more than a deep-league fantasy asset as long as Gortat remains healthy.
Jan 12 - 11:06 PM

Ian Mahinmi played through his knee issue on Friday vs. the Clippers, scoring three points with six rebounds, one assist and one block in 17 minutes.

He was coming off a two-game absence and has never been known for his durability, so he's hard for fantasy owners to rely on. As long as Marcin Gortat is healthy and starting, Mahinmi is strictly a deep-league asset.

Ian Mahinmi (knee) is a game-time call against the Clippers on Friday.

It sounds like he has a good chance to play, though. He did not play on Wednesday after being a game-time decision for that one. If he can't go, that should mean more Jason Smith while Marcin Gortat gets a longer leash.
Fri, Dec 15, 2017 05:31:00 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

Mahinmi should be considered day-to-day with his MRI coming back negative, so perhaps he'll be able to get back out there for Friday's game against the Clippers. With him out, Jason Smith and Mike Scott should see some extra minutes, and Scott could be someone to think about as a low-end streamer or DFS punt play with him starting at power forward tonight.

Ian Mahinmi (sore right knee) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with Memphis.

Mahinmi sat out Tuesday's game with the knee issue, but the good news is that he had an MRI this afternoon that came back negative, so he's just dealing with anything all that serious. If Mahinmi is forced to miss his second game in a row on Wednesday, there will be more minutes available for Jason Smith and Mike Scott, but that means very little in fantasy hoops.
Wed, Dec 13, 2017 05:27:00 PM

Ian Mahinmi (sore right knee) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Nets.

Mahinmi didn't feel quite right after going through his pregame routine, so he'll sit out the first game of this back-to-back set and we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday. Jason Smith and Mike Scott will split the reserve five-man minutes in his absence, but neither of those guys are worth targeting in most leagues.
