Head coach Scott Brooks said that Ian Mahinmi had a minor procedure on his left knee soon after the conclusion of the 2016-17 season.
The Wiz had high hopes for Mahinmi after inking him to a four-year, $64 million contract last summer, but he missed 51 games due to an assortment of knee injuries. However, Brooks is optimistic that Mahinmi will bounce back in 2017-18. "He's down to like 238, he's in the best shape he's ever been. He's working hard and looking forward to coming back," Brooks said. Playing behind Marcin Gortat even when healthy, Mahinmi can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues. Aug 5 - 9:50 AM

Ian Mahinmi (calf) logged 14 minutes during Wednesday's lopsided 123-101 road loss, making 1-of-3 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with three rebounds and two assists.

Mahinmi was limited to 10 minutes in Game 3, and 13 minutes in Game 4, as the Wizards have been reluctant to risk a setback with their backup big man. Small-ball adjustments are an increasing plot-line in this series, so there's no reason to think Mahinmi will play a big role in Game 6.
May 10 - 10:58 PM

Scott Brooks said that Ian Mahinmi's minutes could be in the 15-16 minute range for Game 5 against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Mahinmi's minutes have been steadily climbing since he returned to action for Game 3, but 15-16 minutes still isn't really enough time for him to make a meaningful impact in fantasy hoops. The more minutes Mahinmi plays will result in a slight reduction in playing time for Marcin Gortat.
May 10 - 12:04 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said that Ian Mahinmi (calf) could see a slight increase in playing time in Game 4 on Sunday vs. Boston.

After being sidelined for nearly a month, Mahinmi made his postseason debut in Game 3 on Thursday night. He scored two points and grabbed a rebound in 10 minutes of action. Expect Mahinmi to log around 12 minutes on Sunday. His energy and length on the defensive end allow the Wiz to buy some additional rest for starting center Marcin Gortat.
May 6 - 1:24 PM

Ian Mahinmi made his Wizards postseason debut on Thursday, scoring two points with one rebound, one assist and two blocks in 10 minutes.

After missing almost a month, he was better than expected, especially on the defensive end. Mahinmi was taking minutes away from Marcin Gortat earlier this year, but Gortat is playing too well right now. Expect Mahinmi to play minutes in the low double digits in this round.
May 4 - 10:56 PM

Ian Mahinmi (calf) will be available to play against the Celtics on Thursday.

If he does get into the game, coach Scott Brooks said Mahinmi will likely have a minutes limit. Mahinmi would take minutes away from Jason Smith, Marcin Gortat and possibly Markieff Morris.
May 4 - 7:23 PM

Ian Mahinmi (calf) is a game-time decision to face the Celtics on Thursday.

He still hasn't made his Wizards playoff debut due to an injury back on Apr. 10. Mahinmi is active for this game, so we may not get anything official on his status or playing time. If he's a go, that could take minutes from Jason Smith and Marcin Gortat.
May 4 - 6:23 PM

Ian Mahinmi (calf) will not play in Game 3 against the Celtics on Thursday.

He is day-to-day and has been out since Apr. 10 after he played in just 31 regular season games. Marcin Gortat logged 42 minutes in Game 2 and would likely be looking at heavy run again at home. Jason Smith should also get a few extra minutes as the backup five man.
May 3 - 2:25 PM

Ian Mahinmi (calf) was held out of practice on Monday and will not play in Game 2 vs. the Celtics on Tuesday.

The Wizards could use some extra depth along the frontline with Markieff Morris (ankle) questionable for Game 2. However, Mahinmi is not even cleared to practice fully with the team. "He's not ready to play yet," coach Scott Brooks said of Mahinmi. "We can't throw guys out there not ready to play. We would never do that. We have to wait and see. We're not putting him back unless he's absolutely 100 percent ready."
May 2 - 9:40 AM

Ian Mahinmi (calf) will not play in Game 2 vs. the Celtics on Tuesday.

Mahinmi still isn't practicing with the team and doesn't have a timetable to return. Jason Smith will continue to hold down the fort behind Marcin Gortat until Mahinmi receives clearance.
May 1 - 1:16 PM

Ian Mahinmi (calf) remains out for Game 1 against the Celtics.

The Wizards haven't missed him too much. Jason Smith has been serviceable as a backup center to go with his PF minutes, and the Wizards have gone with Markieff Morris at the five on occasion. Marcin Gortat may have a tough time on Al Horford and all the pick-and-roll action the Celtics will be running.
Apr 29 - 7:08 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said that Ian Mahinmi (calf) will not play in Game 6 vs. the Hawks and that he is unlikely to play in Game 7 if the Wizards win on Friday.

Mahinmi has battled injuries all year and has been unable to get back on the court since straining his calf in the Wizards' second-to-last game of the regular season. Jason Smith (calf) may also miss Game 6, which means Marcin Gortat would be forced to log heavy minutes once again. The Wiz may also ask Markieff Morris to play come minutes at the center spot.
Apr 28 - 1:51 PM

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.
