Ian Mahinmi stepped up in place of Roy Hibbert (ankle) on Saturday against the Suns with 12 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block.
Hibbert did not return from his sprain tonight and he had a lot of weight on it as he came down, so it's possible he misses time. Mahinmi hasn't exactly put up big numbers in his starts, though. In fact he only had three points, six boards and one block in his only start last season. He's worth a speculative add in deep leagues. Nov 22 - 9:43 PM

Ian Mahinmi filled in for Roy Hibbert (knee) on Saturday with two points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

He could get more run with Hibbert suffering a knee bruise tonight. Mahinmi tends to have empty minutes while he's out there, so he's not even really an option in even 16-team leagues.
Nov 8 - 9:37 PM

Ian Mahinmi left Wednesday's game with a right shoulder injury and headed to the locker room.

He missed about seven months with a left shoulder injury and surgery, so this might not be a big deal. Mahinmi should only be on the radar in severely deep leagues.
Oct 15 - 9:23 PM

In his second preseason appearance, Ian Mahinmi (shoulder) came off the bench for three points, four rebounds and one block vs. the Mavericks.

Roy Hibbert was given the night off, so Mahinmi found himself backing up temporary starting center Lavoy Allen (10 points, eight rebounds). His dislocated left shoulder seems to be fully healed, but he's still not on the fantasy radar in standard formats.

Ian Mahinmi (shoulder) is available to play on Friday night.

He missed the FIBA World Cup due to a shoulder injury from back in August. Mahinmi had a chance to miss opening night, but it sounds like he's all better. Fantasy owners can ignore him while Roy Hibbert is healthy.
Oct 10 - 11:17 AM

Pacers C Ian Mahinmi (shoulder) has been ruled out for Tuesday's preseason game vs. the Wolves.

He dislocated his shoulder in August but was able to practice during training camp, and his absence seems like a mere precaution. He's not a fantasy option while stuck behind Roy Hibbert in the rotation.
Oct 7 - 11:48 AM

Ian Mahinmi (left shoulder) is questionable to play Tuesday.

Mahinmi has never averaged more than 16 minutes during his two-years with the Pacers, and boasts career averages of 4.3 points and 3.4 rebounds. He's not someone to target in any league.
Oct 6 - 4:37 PM

Ian Mahinmi (left shoulder) is active for Sunday's scrimmage.

He hurt his shoulder in August so it is good to see that he is progressing well. The fact that he is suiting up for a scrimmage is a very encouraging sign. He will serve as the Pacers' backup center behind Roy Hibbert, but remains off the fantasy radar.
Oct 5 - 5:19 PM

Ian Mahinmi (dislocated shoulder) didn't practice on Tuesday, but he did participate in conditioning drills with the team.

Mahinmi hurt himself before the FIBA World Cup in August, at which point he was given a 2-3 month timetable. The team deemed the injury "minor" and he should be ready to go during the exhibition season, even if he does miss a week or two of training camp.
Oct 1 - 10:13 AM

Ian Mahinmi (shoulder) will miss the start of training camp.

He could miss a couple weeks of training camp due to his left shoulder injury. "We've been increasing the basketball stuff lately and the shoulder's been responding really good, really well to it," Mahinmi said. He was given a 2-3 month prognosis in August, but the team dialed it back earlier this month and called it "minor." Regardless, he's not a fantasy option in most leagues.
Sep 25 - 9:22 PM

Ian Mahinmi's shoulder injury is not as bad as originally expected.

His initial prognosis was 2-3 months, which would have made him questionable for the season opener. Mahinmi said he doesn't need surgery on his dislocated shoulder and won't have any injections. He's been dealing with his shoulder issue since the regular season, so it could be a factor during the 2014-15 even if he heals in time to start the year.
Sep 6 - 12:39 AM

Team France's doctor diagnosed Ian Mahinmi with a dislocated shoulder, and said the injury could sideline him as long as 2-3 months.

Mahinmi suffered the injury during a practice, and an MRI revealed that the injury was serious enough to keep him out of the FIBA World Cup. He is currently headed back to Indiana for further evaluation, but if the initial diagnosis is correct, he will miss all of preseason. Mahinmi is a backup center and doesn't warrant consideration in standard leagues.
Aug 29 - 9:26 PM

Ian Mahinmi has left Team France due to a shoulder injury.

He appeared to suffer the injury in Thursday's practice session and the extent of the injury is not yet know. Mahinmi will back up Roy Hibbert again next season and could get more minutes with Luis Scola playing more power forward than center. He's still not worth drafting in most formats.
Aug 29 - 10:02 AM

Ian Mahinmi has been added to Team France's FIBA World Cup of Basketball roster.

With Alexis Ajinca and Kevin Seraphin both unavailable for the World Cup, Mahinmi will serve as Les Bleu's best option up front for August's World Cup in Spain. While Mahinmi will get plenty of run for France in the World Cup, the 27-year-old doesn't hold much fantasy value heading into the 2014-15 season as he won't see much more playing time than the 12.7 minutes he averaged in 2013-14.
Jul 24 - 11:37 AM

Ian Mahinmi will rest on Wednesday night vs. the Magic.

He is healthy and did not aggravate his hip injury from March. Mahinmi sitting out means Lavoy Allen will get in the rotation tonight, but he's not much of a fantasy option.
