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.

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.

Ian Mahinmi scored seven points with four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 15 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Tuesday's massive 15-point, nine-board, seven-steal game will be a nominee for fluke of the year. Mahinmi should not be owned in most leagues.
Mar 9 - 2:17 AM

Ian Mahinmi came off the bench and played 26 minutes Tuesday, hitting 5-of-8 shots for season highs of 15 points and nine rebounds, with one assist, a block and a career-high seven steals in a 131-127 win over the Suns.

Wow. Marcin Gortat was in some foul trouble, while both Mahinmi and Jason Smith posted big lines while he sat and watched. Mahinmi had four points, five boards, two steals and two blocks in his previous game and has quietly been playing well in limited minutes, but it was nearly impossible to see this coming. After tonight's monster, he's averaging 6.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 steals and 1.6 blocks over his last five games, but a best-case scenario is a three-way timeshare developing between Mahinmi, Gortat and Smith. As of now, Gortat is still the guy to own, but Mahinmi and Smith should be on the radar after this one.

Ian Mahinmi (back) will be available to play Sunday vs. the Jazz.

Mahinmi may be able to earn minutes in the teens tonight, but he's a non-factor in fantasy hoops.
Feb 26 - 3:24 PM

Ian Mahinmi was held out of the second half of Friday night's loss due to back tightness.

Mahinmi played just seven minutes on Friday. "It actually happened before the game. I gave it a go, it stiffened up a little bit," said Mahinmi. "I tried to go again, get some treatment during halftime. It's back spasms. I'm not that concerned. It's not the first time." Jason Smith will see additional minutes if Mahinmi misses any time. Mahinmi can be left on waiver wires in all leagues.
Feb 25 - 12:59 PM

Ian Mahinmi played seven minutes with three rebounds and one block against the 76ers on Friday.

Just because he has a 15-17 minute cap, doesn't mean he'll get to that number. Mahinmi won't be worth owning in almost any league while the durable Marcin Gortat is healthy.
Feb 24 - 10:12 PM

Ian Mahinmi will be capped at 15-17 minutes for the next two weeks.

He's probably not going to play more than that even when he is 100 percent. Marcin Gortat has sneakily been one of the best centers in the Eastern Conference, so don't expect him to lose playing time.
Feb 24 - 5:45 PM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said that Ian Mahinmi's playing time will increase "a little, not a lot."

Washington's offseason acquisition has averaged 13.3 minutes per game since his return on Feb. 8. Brooks has vowed to keep Jason Smith in the rotation, and as long as Smith and Marcin Gortat are healthy it's unlikely that Mahinmi will emerge as a standard-league asset.
Feb 22 - 8:08 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee) will be limited to 12-14 minutes during Thursday's game against the Pacers.

Mahinmi could see his minutes limit lifted after the break, but he won't be making any noise in fantasy hoops as long as Marcin Gortat is healthy.
Feb 15 - 1:57 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee) could see his playing time in the 15-minute range for Monday's game against the Thunder.

Mahinmi's minutes limit is slowly being increased, but he's still nowhere near worth being owned in any scenario.
Feb 13 - 6:27 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee) will once again be on a 10-12 minute limit against the Pacers on Friday.

Mahinmi finished with two points and five rebounds in 12 minutes off the bench on Wednesday in his return to action. Expect the same allotment of minutes on Friday, with him seeing 5-6 minutes each half.
Feb 10 - 6:29 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knees) made his long-awaited return on Wednesday, scoring two points with five rebounds and one steal in 12 minutes off the bench.

The Wizards' offseason acquisition played 14 minutes all season prior to his return tonight, and Washington had him on a 10-12 minute limit. That will slowly rise in the coming weeks, but he's unlikely to exceed the low 20s while Marcin Gorat is healthy. It's great to see Mahinmi back on the court, but his real-world impact far exceeds his fantasy impact.
