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. Dec 7 - 2:35 PM

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.
Dec 5 - 11:37 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.
Nov 25 - 1:03 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.
Nov 24 - 12:27 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.
Nov 22 - 9:43 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.
Nov 8 - 9:37 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.
Oct 15 - 9:23 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.
Oct 12 - 10:02 PM

Ian Mahinmi (shoulder) is available to play on Friday night.

He missed the FIBA World Cup due to a shoulder injury from back in August. Mahinmi had a chance to miss opening night, but it sounds like he's all better. Fantasy owners can ignore him while Roy Hibbert is healthy.
Oct 10 - 11:17 AM

Pacers C Ian Mahinmi (shoulder) has been ruled out for Tuesday's preseason game vs. the Wolves.

He dislocated his shoulder in August but was able to practice during training camp, and his absence seems like a mere precaution. He's not a fantasy option while stuck behind Roy Hibbert in the rotation.
Oct 7 - 11:48 AM

Ian Mahinmi (left shoulder) is questionable to play Tuesday.

Mahinmi has never averaged more than 16 minutes during his two-years with the Pacers, and boasts career averages of 4.3 points and 3.4 rebounds. He's not someone to target in any league.
Oct 6 - 4:37 PM

Ian Mahinmi (left shoulder) is active for Sunday's scrimmage.

He hurt his shoulder in August so it is good to see that he is progressing well. The fact that he is suiting up for a scrimmage is a very encouraging sign. He will serve as the Pacers' backup center behind Roy Hibbert, but remains off the fantasy radar.
Oct 5 - 5:19 PM

Ian Mahinmi (dislocated shoulder) didn't practice on Tuesday, but he did participate in conditioning drills with the team.

Mahinmi hurt himself before the FIBA World Cup in August, at which point he was given a 2-3 month timetable. The team deemed the injury "minor" and he should be ready to go during the exhibition season, even if he does miss a week or two of training camp.
Oct 1 - 10:13 AM

Ian Mahinmi (shoulder) will miss the start of training camp.

He could miss a couple weeks of training camp due to his left shoulder injury. "We've been increasing the basketball stuff lately and the shoulder's been responding really good, really well to it," Mahinmi said. He was given a 2-3 month prognosis in August, but the team dialed it back earlier this month and called it "minor." Regardless, he's not a fantasy option in most leagues.
