Scott Brooks stated on Friday that Ian Mahinmi (strained left calf) will not play in Game 3 on Saturday or Game 4 on Monday against the Hawks.
Saturday will mark the 10th day of Mahinmi’s original 7-10 day timetable so him being ruled out so early for Monday’s game is interesting. He was a borderline option in deep leagues this season for his 1.1 steals, 0.8 blocks and 59.1 field goal percentage but probably hurt more fantasy owners than he helped by reducing Marcin Gortat’s value. Gortat had 14 points, 10 rebounds, five blocks and a steal in Game 2 against the Hawks.
