Ian Mahinmi (neck) will play against the Cavs on Friday.

He had an issue with his lower neck area on Wednesday and missed practice on Thursday. With Mahinmi back, Roy Hibbert may not play as much while Luis Scola is less likely to get backup center minutes.
Mar 20 - 6:11 PM

Ian Mahinmi (neck) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Cavs.

With averages of just 4.8 points and 6.3 rebounds on the season, Mahinmi can't be viewed as a viable option in most leagues. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 19 - 3:53 PM

Ian Mahinmi should be "good to go" for the weekend, according to coach Frank Vogel.

He was tested for a concussion and everything checked out fine. Mahinmi will continue to back up Roy Hibbert and is only worth owning in very deep leagues, especially considering he doesn't put up big games when Hibbert misses time.
Mar 19 - 12:18 AM

Ian Mahinmi suffered a forehead contusion on Wednesday and is doubtful to return.

He was grabbing his right shoulder on his way to the locker room, as well. Mahinmi had a right shoulder injury over the summer. If he's out, we should see more of Lavoy Allen and Luis Scola, but there's no need to make a speculative add at this time.
Mar 18 - 10:17 PM

Ian Mahinmi will move back to the bench for Saturday's game vs. the Celtics.

Roy Hibbert is returning from an elbow injury, and Mahinmi only plays 18.4 minutes per game when he comes off the bench. Mahinmi did reward his owners with a eight points, 10 boards, two assists and four blocks on Thursday, and he will be worth a look again if Hibbert has to miss any time down the stretch.
Mar 14 - 11:31 AM

Ian Mahinmi fouled out against the Bucks on Thursday, finishing with eight points, 10 boards, two assists, one steal and four blocks in 29 minutes.

He made all four shots from the field in place of Roy Hibbert, who could miss time going forward. Mahinmi scored six points with 10 boards on Tuesday and should be close to 30 minutes. He's worth a look in deep leagues for short-term value.
Mar 12 - 9:34 PM

Ian Mahinmi scored a season-high 14 points with 11 rebounds, one steal and one block in 27 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Mahinmi did this with Roy Hibbert back in the lineup and one look at his game log will show that it's an aberration.
Mar 6 - 11:57 PM

Ian Mahinmi started for Roy Hibbert (rest) on Wednesday with six points, eight boards, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes against the Knicks.

This was right on par with his averages in previous starts. Roy Hibbert rested on Wednesday and he should be ready to go for Friday night. Mahinmi can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
Mar 4 - 9:49 PM

Ian Mahinmi will start at center vs. the Raptors on Wednesday, as Roy Hibbert is getting the night off to rest.

Mahinmi is a poor fantasy option even when thrust into a bigger role -- in four starts this season he's averaged 7.8 points, 6.8 boards, 0.3 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.5 blocks per game. Lavoy Allen and Luis Scola should also pick up more minutes off the bench in Hibbert's temporary absence.
Mar 4 - 5:24 PM

Ian Mahinmi (sprained right ankle) will return to action vs. the Pelicans on Wednesday.

Mahinmi suffered what looked like a bad sprain on Feb. 4 but it only cost him three games, and his return just before the break confirms that it's not serious. He'll get a few more minutes with Lavoy Allen (knee) unavailable, but remains a dubious fantasy option backing up Roy Hibbert.
Feb 11 - 7:05 PM

Ian Mahinmi (ankle) and Lavoy Allen (knee) are both considered game-time decisions for Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Mahinmi was averaging just 18.7 minutes per game this season in a backup role to Roy Hibbert, so his value is limited to deeper leagues for owners in need of boards and blocks. If Mahinmi or Allen sit out on Wednesday, expect Luis Scola to see a bump in playing time off the bench.
Feb 11 - 1:30 PM

Ian Mahinmi (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

With both Mahinmi and Lavoy Allen (knee) in jeopardy of missing Wednesday's game, Luis Scola will pick up a majority of their reserve minutes. However, Scola isn't much more than a punt play in daily leagues, and he has no business being on a roster in standard leagues.
Feb 10 - 3:59 PM

Ian Mahinmi (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Monday.

He suffered an ugly ankle sprain on Wednesday and will missed his third game. Mahinmi is having some really bad luck staying healthy and is not worth owning in fantasy leagues. Luis Scola looked great on Sunday and is worth a look, especially with Lavoy Allen out.
Feb 9 - 5:48 PM

Ian Mahinmi (ankle) is questionable to play on Monday against the Spurs.

Mahinmi was thought to be out indefinitely after spraining his ankle last week, but he's rebounded well and has a chance to play on Monday, less than a week after the injury.
