Ian Mahinmi did a bit of everything in 30 minutes of play on Wednesday night, ending with eight points, seven boards, two assists, a steal and two blocks.
Mahinmi's production will likely take a hit as Thomas Bryant's minutes start to creep back up. But his ability to contribute to the defensive stats could keep him around for a bit in deeper leagues.

Ian Mahinmi chipped in everywhere posting 15 points, six rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 30 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Jazz.
Mahinmi held his own against Rudy Gobert and even shot 5-of-7 from the field. Thomas Bryant is working his way back, so Mahinmi's value looks to be drying up.

Ian Mahinmi was effective in his 24 minutes on the floor on Monday, providing the Wizards with four points, eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and four blocks.
Mahinmi has been a low-key, deep-league asset over the last couple of weeks for his ability to pop off with defensive numbers like he did tonight. He's a hold until the Wizards get their regular crew of starters up and running.

Ian Mahinmi was able to corral a steal and three blocks in Friday's home loss to the Blazers.
Mahinmi's box score was rather empty elsewhere with three points, two boards and three assists, but the ability to grab defensive stats puts him on the deep-league and streaming map with Washington's other centers out indefinitely. He's averaging 0.7 steals and 1.5 blocks in 21.2 mpg, which definitely makes him a worthwhile option for certain roster builds.

Per Candace Buckner of the Washington Post, Scott Brooks confirmed that Rookie F Rui Hachimura (groin contusion) will remain out for a few more weeks.
The Wizards frontcourt is decimated right now with Thomas Bryant, Moritz Wagner and Davis Bertans all joining Hachimura on the sidelines. Ian Mahinmi and Anzejs Pasecniks will continue to soak up minutes in the meantime, though Thomas Bryant is inching closer to a return.

Ian Mahinmi was nearly perfect from the field vs. the Heat on Monday shooting 11-for-12, though just 3-of-8 from the line, and providing 25 points, five rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.
Before we overreact, keep in mind that this was Mahinmi's first game in double-digits for the season. The Wizards are missing so many frontcourt players that he could provide some helpful games as a streaming center for a bit here, but it won't always be pretty.

Ian Mahinmi started and put up eight points (1-for-5 FGs, 6-for-11 FTs), nine rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 28 minutes in a win over the Knicks on Monday.
With the Wizards missing four major pieces of their frontcourt for a while, Mahinmi is worth a look if you need some center minutes.
December 22, 2019, 1:32 pmDavis BertansF, Washington Wizards
Davis Bertans (right quad strain) has been ruled out on Monday vs. the Knicks.
He injured his quad on Saturday and didn't return to the game after heading to the locker room. He's been amazing this year and is in the midst of a breakout season so hopefully this doesn't keep him sidelined for too long. Ian Mahinmi should get some more time with Bertans out on Monday.

Anzejis Pasecniks recorded a new career-high with 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting on Saturday, adding two rebounds and one assist.
Pasecnicks' 24-year-old knees and legs got more run than Ian Mahinmi, who still played better in 19 minutes with seven points, eight rebounds, one assist, two steals, one 3-pointer and one block. While Mahinmi remains the deep-league option to own here, Pasecniks could be in line for some extra burn with Davis Bertans suffering a quad injury in this game.

Despite getting only 16 minutes on Friday, Ian Mahinmi nearly double-doubled with eight points, seven rebounds and a steal.
Mahinmi is basically the last center standing for the Wizards but the team seems hesitant to give him huge minutes considering he only just returned from a lengthy absence (Achilles pain). He's a low-end center for deep-league use and offers slightly more upside than Anzejs Pasecniks, who had four rebounds in 14 minutes tonight.
December 18, 2019, 10:45 pmAnzejs PasecniksC, Washington Wizards
Anzejs Pasecniks made his NBA debut in Wednesday's 109-110 loss to the Bulls, finishing with nine points, eight rebounds, an assist and two turnovers in 28 minutes.
The 7'1" Pasecniks was taken with the 25th pick in the 2017 draft, and played the majority of the center minutes in his first NBA game. The Wizards are without any real options in the middle outside him and Ian Mahimi (eight points, six rebounds, three blocks, 24 min), and if he is seeing this amount of burn he could fall into enough rebounds to make himself somewhat useful in 20-team settings. The Wizards were granted a disabled player exception for C.J Miles a day ago, so some relief in the form of another big body could be coming soon. For now though, Pasecniks has a spot in the rotation purely out of necessity.

Mo Wagner (left ankle sprain) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Bulls.
The Wizards frontcourt is a mess right now with Wagner, Rui Hachimura and Thomas Bryant all out. Davis Bertans will continue to get all the run he can handle while Ian Mahinmi should be force-fed minutes at center.

Rui Hachamura (groin contusion) is expected to miss at least the next five games before being re-evaluated when the Wizards return from their road trip.
The injury-depleted frontcourt of the Wizards takes another blow with this news. Davis Bertans, Ian Mahinmi and the newly signed Anzejs Pasceniks are the only currently healthy big men on the Wizards.

Ian Mahinmi headed to the locker room with a trainer late in Monday's game against the Pistons.
Mahinmi had a decent game with nine points (3-of-4 FGs), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 25 minutes. He's been too inconsistent to trust as a blocks and boards streamer so far.

Ian Mahinmi started for Mo Wagner (sprained ankle) on Saturday but did little with his 17 minutes on the floor, notching jut four points (1-of-5 shooting) three rebounds, one assist and one block.
Mahinmi has not been on the fantasy radar and appears to still be lost among the shadows of obscurity. You can leave on the wire.
