Ian Mahinmi (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Nets.
This will be his fourth game in a row on the shelf. This is not the same knee that he had offseason surgery on, but the Wizards are going to play it safe with their $64 million backup center. He was able to practice Sunday, so he's considered day-to-day. Dec 4 - 1:37 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee) will not play Friday night vs. the Spurs.

Mahinmi has appeared in just one game this season and holds no fantasy value. Jason Smith should see a few additional minutes.
Dec 2 - 1:03 PM

Ian Mahinmi (right knee) received treatment on Thursday.

He had surgery on his left knee, so it's not an aggravation to his knee. Considering the Wizards aren't too thin, they may want to bring Mahinmi along slowly.
Dec 1 - 3:07 PM

Ian Mahinmi (right knee) will not play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

He did not go through shootaround and the Wizards will just be safe with Mahinmi. He had surgery on left knee, so this is something different. There will be a couple extra minutes for Jason Smith tonight.
Nov 30 - 6:35 PM

Ian Mahinmi (right knee) did not participate during shootaround, and he is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

Mahinmi was also limited during Tuesday's practice, so he's probably much closer to doubtful for tonight's game. He's not worth owning anywhere, and his absence will have a negligible impact in fantasy hoops.
Nov 30 - 1:29 PM

Ian Mahinmi (sore right knee) did some individual work on the side but did not practice with the team on Tuesday.

Mahinmi seems questionable at best for Wednesday night's game in OKC. He has played just 14 minutes this entire season, so this won't have significant fantasy implications, either way.
Nov 29 - 1:34 PM

Ian Mahinmi (sore right knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Kings.

Mahinmi made his regular-season debut on Saturday, logging 14 minutes off the bench, and the positive here would be that this is Mahinmi's good knee. He'll miss Monday's game, and his minutes will likely be divvied up between Jason Smith and Andrew Nicholson, but none of these guys matter in most leagues. For now, we'll consider Mahinmi questionable for Wednesday's game in OKC.
Nov 28 - 5:29 PM

Ian Mahinmi played 14 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday with one rebound, one steal, one block and two turnovers.

The rust was apparent for his first game of the season. Mahinmi was not moving very well out there and looked tired out there. He could get close to 20 minutes than this, but the Wizards will keep his playing time down as long as Marcin Gortat is healthy. He's only a desperation handcuff in deep leagues.
Nov 26 - 9:24 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee) will his make season debut against the Spurs on Saturday.

He has been doing some 4-on-4 work since last week, but he will have his minutes monitored for tonight. While the Wizards paid up to get Mahinmi, he shouldn't affect Marcin Gortat too much. Mahinmi is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Nov 26 - 5:22 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee surgery) got in some 4-on-4 work during Sunday's practice.

He's nearing a return, but will likely be brought along slowly in Washington. Once he's fully up to speed, Mahinmi will likely have a limited role behind Marcin Gortat, so he's not worth owning in most settings.
Nov 20 - 5:01 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee surgery) said he expects to return before the end of November after going through Saturday's shootaround.

"Obviously it’s not a live full-blown practice but it’s my first time being on the court with everybody. I went through every drill, no restriction," Mahinmi said. "That’s the goal, to come back before the end of the month, and everything depends on how my knee reacts going into a full-blown practice." He could return to full practice on either Sunday or Monday, so we will likely get another update soon. He won't be a fantasy pickup while Marcin Gortat is healthy.
Nov 20 - 10:35 AM

Ian Mahinmi (knee surgery) participated in the full morning shootaround on Saturday.

This is Mahinmi's first practice since undergoing knee surgery in mid-October to repair a partially torn medial meniscus in his left knee. His initial prognosis was 4-6 weeks of rehab. He obviously still has a few hurdles to clear before returning to game action. Even when healthy, he will likely have a relatively limited role backing up Marcin Gortat.
Nov 19 - 12:16 PM

Scott Brooks said that there's a "good chance" Ian Mahinmi (knee surgery) will be able to begin practicing with the team sometime next week.

Once Mahinmi is able to go through a full practice, the Wizards will update his timetable, but it's looking like he might not be able to get back to the court until around December. He'll have a limited role behind Marcin Gortat this year, and is not worth owning anywhere.
Nov 16 - 5:18 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee) said he is now doing some work and is pain free.

At shootaround, he looked to have worked up a sweat and is clearly progressing. Mahinmi said he doesn't want to reveal a target date, but it sounds like he is right on pace for his late-November return. His return shouldn't affect Marcin Gortat.
Nov 11 - 4:52 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee surgery) was spotted going through an individual workout, without a knee brace on Tuesday.

Mahinmi is currently at Week-4 of his initial 4-6 week timetable, but with him still not going through full practices, he's probably going to need the full six weeks before he's actually playing in games. Once he's cleared, he'll have a limited role behind Marcin Gortat, so he's not worth owning anywhere.
