Ian Mahinmi (calf) remains out for Game 5 against the Hawks.
He is hoping to be available at some point in this series, but there hasn't been much progress. Marcin Gortat has been a major factor and has been able to negate Dwight Howard in three of the four games, so he figures to get a long look in the starting lineup again. Apr 26 - 5:48 PM

Ian Mahinmi indicated that he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from his strained left calf, and he hopes to return at some points during Washington's first-round series against Atlanta.

Mahinmi still hasn't been able to practice with the team, so him getting back out there for Wednesday's Game 5 seems unlikely, but maybe he can get back out there for Friday's Game 6 in Atlanta. Jason Smith will continue to act as Marcin Gortat's primary backup for however long Mahinmi is on the sidelines.
Apr 25 - 2:20 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said that Ian Mahinmi (calf) has been re-evaluated and will miss at least two more games.

Mahinmi initially injured his calf back on April 10th and has not been able to suit up since. Mahinmi will travel with the team to Atlanta, but will not have a chance to play until Game 5 back in D.C. on April 26. Starter Marcin Gortat will continue to log heavy minutes, and Jason Smith will see additional minutes off the bench as well.
Apr 21 - 12:23 PM

Ian Mahinmi (calf) will miss at least another two games for the Wizards.

"He said he was feeling better," said Scott Brooks. "He was shooting some free throws. I don't anticipate him anytime within the next game or so. Definitely not [for Game 2] and most likely not [for Game 3]." With Mahinmi on the sidelines, Jason Smith will continue to act as Marcin Gortat's primary backup. Maybe Mahinmi can get back on the court for Game 4 on Monday, April 24, but it's unlikely he'll earn enough minutes to matter in any fantasy format.
Apr 18 - 5:14 PM

Ian Mahinmi (strained left calf) will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days.

Mahinmi will sit out Washington's regular-season finale against Miami on Wednesday, and he'll likely be missing the first three games of the Wizards' first-round series against the Hawks. "Hopefully he feels better then, but you never know," Brooks said. "But he’s definitely going to miss the first couple of games [of the playoffs]." Jason Smith will be picking up most of the reserve five-man minutes in Mahinmi's absence.
Apr 12 - 2:16 PM

Ian Mahinmi (calf) will not play Wednesday vs. the Heat.

With Mahinmi and Markieff Morris (rest) on the sidelines tonight, and Marcin Gortat working with a minutes limit, Jason Smith could be forced into heavy minutes tonight, so he's on the radar as a streamer in deep leagues for those seeking to bolster the shot blocking category. Mahinmi was spotted using crutches following Monday's win over the Pistons, so he might not be 100 percent for the postseason.
Apr 12 - 12:31 PM

Ian Mahinmi (strained left calf) needed crutches following Monday's loss to the Pistons.

It's important to note that the crutches were for precautionary reasons and Mahinmi said that he felt relieved the injury wasn’t as bad as expected. However, he should be considered doubtful for the Wizards' regular-season finale on Wednesday. If Mahinmi is unable to play, Jason Smith will likely soak up most of his minutes.
Apr 11 - 9:41 AM

Ian Mahinmi (calf) suffered a strained calf in Monday's loss in Detroit.

Mahinmi racked up six points, 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocked shots over 22 minutes off the bench before suffering the injury. He'll be a question mark for the regular-season finale in Miami. If he sits for the finale Jason Smith is likely to pick up a majority of the minutes, while Markieff Morris might also see more run.
Apr 10 - 10:46 PM

Ian Mahinmi (hip) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Lakers and scored 10 points in 18 minutes.

He finished 3-of-4 from the field with five rebounds and two steals, and while he showed no signs of being limited, his workload will be low while Marcin Gortat is healthy. Leave Mahinmi on the wire.
Mar 29 - 1:32 AM

Ian Mahinmi (hip) and Bojan Bogdanovic (back) will play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

Mahinmi went through a full practice on Monday and should be ready for his normal workload off the bench. However, fantasy owners can continue to ignore him while Marcin Gortat is healthy.
Mar 28 - 9:13 PM

Ian Mahinmi (hip) went through a full practice on Monday.

Mahinmi was limited to nine minutes off the bench during Saturday's loss to the Cavs after getting kneed in the hip on a Richard Jefferson drive to the hoop, but it's not looking like this will be an issue that forced Mahinmi to spend any time on the sidelines. That being said, as long as Marcin Gortat is healthy, Mahinmi won't be worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 27 - 3:54 PM

Ian Mahinmi played nine minutes with one rebound and one steal against the Cavs on Saturday.

He took a Richard Jefferson knee to his left hip and was in a lot of pain, but Mahinmi stayed in the game. It was pretty clear Mahinmi was protecting his hip from contact after that and he will likely be feeling it tomorrow. He isn't worth owning in fantasy anyway.
Mar 25 - 10:42 PM

Ian Mahinmi scored five points with seven rebounds and a blocked shot in 22 minutes off the bench in Monday's loss against the Wolves.

Mahinmi doesn't give you a ton of production, but he has 6.6 points with 5.4 rebounds and 1.0 blocked shots per game over his past seven outings. He is performing above his season averages lately and is worth a look in deeper fantasy formats if you need depth at the center position.
Mar 13 - 11:46 PM

Ian Mahinmi did not score with three rebounds in 15 minutes.

He cooled off in this game and really just can't be counted on in fantasy. The Wizards have to be happy Mahinmi is healthy, though.
Mar 12 - 3:09 AM

Ian Mahinmi scored nine points with seven rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 22 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

He saw some late minutes in this game over Marcin Gortat. Mahimni is starting to play some excellent basketball on both ends of the floor, which has helped him get to 20 minutes per game in March. While Gortat is in a small slump, Mahinmi's durability and capped minutes make him a tough player to add unless you're super desperate.
