Ian Mahinmi just missed a double-double in 27 minutes off the bench on Friday, scoring 12 points on 6-of-9 shooting with nine rebounds, one steal and one block.
Mahinmi stole minutes from Roy Hibbert and moved Lavoy Allen (DNP-CD) to the bench. He hasn't done much whenever he has stepped into a full-time role, so needless to say he doesn't have any value if Hibbert is upright. Jan 16 - 10:34 PM

Ian Mahinmi will serve as Indiana's primary backup center for Friday's game vs. Detroit.

He will be taking minutes away from Lavoy Allen, but neither guy was putting up useful stats anyway. As long as Roy Hibbert is healthy, Mahinmi and Allen can safely remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Jan 16 - 5:33 PM

Ian Mahinmi returned to action on Saturday with one point in four minutes.

He was out for just over a month and will eventually be the backup to Roy Hibbert. Even in the event of a Hibbert injury, Mahinmi still won't be worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 10 - 11:18 PM

Updating a previous report, Ian Mahinmi (foot) will be available to play for Friday's game against the Celtics.

Mahimni is likely just an emergncy guy for tonight with Roy Hibbert (ankle) active. He's averaging just 4.9 points and 5.8 rebounds on the season, so he can't be considered a viable option in most leagues.
Jan 9 - 5:05 PM

Ian Mahinmi (foot) will not play Friday vs. the Celtics.

With Roy Hibbert (ankle) being listed as questionable for this one, Lavoy Allen and Luis Scola could be in line for some extended minutes. Hibbert only lasted five minutes during his last outing, which resulted in Allen logging 33 minutes on his way to 12 points, nine rebounds, and three assists, so he'll likely be the primary beneficiary if Hibbert is unable to go. Stay tuned.
Jan 9 - 11:28 AM

Ian Mahinmi (torn plantar fascia) is questionable to play against the Celtics on Friday.

He was expected to miss 6-8 weeks back on Dec. 7, so he's ahead of his prognosis. The only noteworthy items on Mahinmi are that he was getting some shots up before the game on Jan. 2, so he's a little closer to doubtful. Lavoy Allen is still the favorite to back up Roy Hibbert (ankle) for Friday. Most owners in fantasy leagues can ignore both.
Jan 8 - 9:21 PM

Ian Mahinmi suffered a torn plantar fascia and will miss the next 6-8 weeks.

He suffered the injury on Friday and the Pacers are going to be very thin up front. Perhaps they go with a smaller lineup, but Shane Whittington may also get in the rotation with Lavoy Allen helping out. Mahinmi can be cut everywhere. Roy Hibbert had better stay healthy.

Ian Mahinmi is dealing with a sore left foot on Friday and will not return.

He finished with two points, four boards, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 12 minutes. Roy Hibbert was in a bit of foul trouble, which explains why he played so much in the first half. Mahinmi has little fantasy value right now.
Fri, Dec 5, 2014 11:37:00 PM

Ian Mahinmi started and had eight points, five rebounds, a steal and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Spurs, while Lavoy Allen came off the bench for eight points and nine rebounds.

The Pacers desperately need Roy Hibbert back from his sprained ankle and might have had a chance against the Spurs tonight if Hibbert played (and was effective). The two big men are holding down the fort, but neither can be relied upon in most fantasy situations. Hibbert remains day-to-day with his injury.

Ian Mahinmi started for injured Roy Hibbert (ankle) in Monday's win over the Mavs, scoring 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting with seven rebounds and one block in 28 minutes.

This is what owners can expect for however long Hibbert is out, so give Mahinmi a look if this floats your boat.
Tue, Nov 25, 2014 01:03:00 AM

Ian Mahinmi is expected to draw the start on Monday against the Mavericks.

With Roy Hibbert (ankle) ruled out, Mahinmi should start in his place. He had 12 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and a block while filling in for Hibbert after he was injured on Saturday, so Mahinmi should be able to produce in decent (low-end) fashion for however long Hibbert remains out.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 12:27:00 PM

Ian Mahinmi stepped up in place of Roy Hibbert (ankle) on Saturday against the Suns with 12 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block.

Hibbert did not return from his sprain tonight and he had a lot of weight on it as he came down, so it's possible he misses time. Mahinmi hasn't exactly put up big numbers in his starts, though. In fact he only had three points, six boards and one block in his only start last season. He's worth a speculative add in deep leagues.
Sat, Nov 22, 2014 09:43:00 PM

Ian Mahinmi filled in for Roy Hibbert (knee) on Saturday with two points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

He could get more run with Hibbert suffering a knee bruise tonight. Mahinmi tends to have empty minutes while he's out there, so he's not even really an option in even 16-team leagues.
Sat, Nov 8, 2014 09:37:00 PM

Ian Mahinmi left Wednesday's game with a right shoulder injury and headed to the locker room.

He missed about seven months with a left shoulder injury and surgery, so this might not be a big deal. Mahinmi should only be on the radar in severely deep leagues.
Wed, Oct 15, 2014 09:23:00 PM

In his second preseason appearance, Ian Mahinmi (shoulder) came off the bench for three points, four rebounds and one block vs. the Mavericks.

Roy Hibbert was given the night off, so Mahinmi found himself backing up temporary starting center Lavoy Allen (10 points, eight rebounds). His dislocated left shoulder seems to be fully healed, but he's still not on the fantasy radar in standard formats.
