Scott Brooks said that Ian Mahinmi (knees) will be re-evaluated at the end of January.
"He's doing some court work, not a lot," said Brooks of Mahinmi. "Very light shooting. He's doing all the rehabbing and strengthening that he needs to do. We definitely want to have him back as soon as we can, but we want him to be back whenever he's ready and able to play consistently. We'll see how he feels at the end of the month." Brooks also mentioned that there's "no rush" to get Mahinmi back to the court, so it's looking like he might not be back until February. Leave him on the wire. Jan 9 - 2:20 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knees) will be evaluated late in January before a return date can be established.

The Wizards signed Mahinmi to a four-year, $64 million contract this past offseason, but have seen very, very little return on their major investment thus far. Mahinmi has played a grand total of just 14 minutes this entire season, and it sounds like he won't even start practicing until February at the earliest. He can be left on waiver wires.

With Ian Mahinmi (knees) expected to miss at least six weeks, Wizards coach Scott Brooks said he will "definitely" consider more small-ball lineups.

Mahinmi had PRP treatment on both knees earlier on Wednesday. Jason Smith and Daniel Ochefu are the primary backup centers when the Wizards need to stay bigger, but guys like Markieff Morris and Andrew Nicholson could also get a slight boost when the team goes small. There are no big winners here.

Ian Mahinmi is scheduled to undergo PRP treatment on both of his knees, and he will miss at least the next six weeks of action.

It's been a struggle for Mahinmi this season, with him only suiting up for one game thus far, and it's certainly possible he's out longer than this initial six-week timetable. Jason Smith and Daniel Ochefu have been splitting the backup center minutes this season, while Gortat has been forced into playing a career-high 35.8 minutes a night. Smith and Ochefu are negligible fantasy assets in all leagues.

Ian Mahinmi (right knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

Mahinmi won't be getting any revenge tonight. Jason Smith (hamstring) is questionable, so Daniel Ochefu could be the backup center again on Monday. Expect Marcin Gortat to play heavy minutes no matter what.

An MRI on Ian Mahinmi (right knee) came back clean and he is expected to miss at least one week.

Mahinmi required surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee before the season tipped and then developed soreness, believed to be tendinitis, in the right knee after playing just 14 minutes vs. the San Antonio Spurs on Nov. 26. Marcin Gortat has been busy this season with a career-high 35.4 minutes per game with Jason Smith backing him up. Mahinmi isn't worth stashing almost anywhere.

Ian Mahinmi (knee) will not play against the Nuggets on Thursday.

This signing is not going well for the Wizards so far with Mahinmi getting just 14 minutes in his one game this season.
Thu, Dec 8, 2016 05:32:00 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee) is questionable for Thursday's game vs. Denver.

He reportedly went through portions of the morning shootaround, so we know he's getting closer. The Wizards have every reason to bring him along slowly, so his minutes will be limited if he's able to play Thursday. Leave him on the wire while Marcin Gortat is healthy.
Thu, Dec 8, 2016 01:01:00 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Magic.

Mahinmi has only managed to suit up for one game this season, and Tuesday will be his fifth consecutive game on the sidelines. In other words, he belongs on the waiver wire everywhere.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 05:23:00 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee) is questionable to play Tuesday vs. Orlando.

Mahinmi has missed four straight games due to a knee issue. He has appeared in just one game this season, and shouldn't be owned in standard fantasy leagues.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 12:37:00 PM

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.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 01:37:00 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.
Fri, Dec 2, 2016 01:03:00 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.
Thu, Dec 1, 2016 03:07:00 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.
Wed, Nov 30, 2016 06:35:00 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.
