Ian Mahinmi (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.
Mahinmi should be considered day-to-day with his MRI coming back negative, so perhaps he'll be able to get back out there for Friday's game against the Clippers. With him out, Jason Smith and Mike Scott should see some extra minutes, and Scott could be someone to think about as a low-end streamer or DFS punt play with him starting at power forward tonight.

Ian Mahinmi (sore right knee) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with Memphis.

Mahinmi sat out Tuesday's game with the knee issue, but the good news is that he had an MRI this afternoon that came back negative, so he's just dealing with anything all that serious. If Mahinmi is forced to miss his second game in a row on Wednesday, there will be more minutes available for Jason Smith and Mike Scott, but that means very little in fantasy hoops.

Ian Mahinmi (sore right knee) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Nets.

Mahinmi didn't feel quite right after going through his pregame routine, so he'll sit out the first game of this back-to-back set and we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday. Jason Smith and Mike Scott will split the reserve five-man minutes in his absence, but neither of those guys are worth targeting in most leagues.

Ian Mahinmi (sore knee) is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

Mahinmi was surprisingly solid last week, averaging 12.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 0.5 blocks in 24.5 minutes over his last two games. If he is unable to suit up on Tuesday night, Jason Smith and Mike Scott would see an uptick in minutes off the bench.

Ian Mahinmi (sore knee) did not practice Monday and is considered day-to-day.

Mahinmi is coming off two strong games with 12.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 0.5 blocks in 24.5 minutes, but his durability has always been a concern. If he can't play on Tuesday vs. the Nets, Marcin Gortat would see a heavier workload and Jason Smith and Mike Scott would be candidates to see a bump in minutes.
Dec 11 - 1:59 PM

Ian Mahinmi scored 14 points with two rebounds, three assists and one block in 24 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

Hr played most of the minutes down the stretch and maybe he should've played a little more as the Wizards folded late. Mahinmi checked out at 45 seconds left with the Wizards up three, but they couldn't hold the lead. Good game aside, Mahinmi's fantasy value doesn't really change much here.
Dec 9 - 6:55 PM

Ian Mahinmi played 25 minutes off the bench and hit 4-of-5 shots for a season-high 10 points, eight rebounds, one assist and two steals in Thursday's win over the Suns.

He's been quiet all season, but Marcin Gortat's struggles continued tonight, and Mahinmi could be in the process of working himself into a timeshare with the big man. Gortat hit just 2-of-6 shots for four points and eight boards in 23 minutes. Just keep an eye on Mahinmi.
Dec 7 - 11:52 PM

Ian Mahinmi (ankle) is available to play on Friday vs. the Warriors.

This is a tough matchup with the Warriors playing so much small ball, and Mahinmi is only averaging 13.3 minutes per game on the season. Fantasy owners can do better.
Oct 27 - 10:21 PM

Ian Mahinmi (ankle) is a game-time call to face the Warriors on Friday.

This game starts late tonight, so we won't get much info until at least 9:00. If Mahinmi cannot go, Jason Smith figures to back up Marcin Gortat.
Oct 27 - 3:34 PM

Ian Mahinmi (left ankle sprain) is listed as questionable against the Warriors on Friday.

He suffered the injury on Wednesday and did not return. The Wizards are probably going to use some smaller lineups at times against the Warriors anyway, so Jason Smith could be shifted to the center spot.
Oct 26 - 2:49 PM

Ian Mahinmi (ankle) will not return against the Lakers on Wednesday.

The Wizards will likely be shifting Jason Smith over to the five while Mahinmi is on the shelf.
Oct 26 - 12:11 AM

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.
