  • Ian Mahinmi - C - Washington Wizards

    Ian Mahinmi outplayed Thomas Bryant again on Wednesday night, delivering six points, eight rebounds and five steals in 25 minutes of action.

    This one was fairly predictable considering Mahinmi took the lion's share of center minutes in a matchup with these same Sixers just yesterday. That said, the steals were a really nice addition for those of you who have scooped him up in deeper formats. Thomas Bryant is still the guy to own here but you can play the matchup game a bit with Mahinmi, who has always been an intriguing per-minute producer of defensive stats.

    Ian Mahinmi scored 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and two blocks in 17 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Sixers.

    Mahinmi is sitting on two straight big lines and his line three games ago wasn't bad either. We've seen this in the past from him and the bigger issue is his health. The Wizards have also seen a particularly big stretch of centers for youngster Thomas Bryant to defend, including Hassan Whiteside, Steven Adams and Joel Embiid, and they get Embiid again on Wednesday in the home-and-home. Unless you're desperate for a big man, trying to get in front of this wave isn't a recommended course of action.

    Ian Mahinmi (sore piriformis) will start on Friday against the Kings.

    Mahinmi hasn’t done much to separate himself as the Wizards wait for Dwight Howard’s return. His return pushes Jason Smith back to the bench. Markieff Morris is still the big man to own in Washington.

    Ian Mahinmi went through Friday's shootaround and is a game-time decision for the game against the Kings.

    Mahinmi missed Wednesday's game with a back spasm issue. He hasn't been good despite the absence of Dwight Howard when he has been out there. Expect Jason Smith and Jeff Green to be the main players to play in his stead if he is absent on Friday.

    Ian Mahimni (back spasms) is out against the Warriors on Wednesday and Jason Smith will draw the start.

    The Wizards are without Dwight Howard and now Mahimni, so Jason Smith, Jeff Green and Thomas Bryant will have to combine to fill all of the minutes at center.

    Ian Mahinmi (back spasms) is a game-time decision Wednesday.

    Mahinmi has squandered his opportunity with Dwight Howard out of the lineup. The Warriors could run him off the floor if he does play. If he cannot go, Jason Smith, Thomas Bryant and Jeff Green project to get the center minutes.

    Ian Mahinmi's back spasms have landed him on the injury report as questionable ahead of Wednesday's contest.

    Mahinmi has been a massive disappointment so far as a fill-in for Dwight Howard, as the only thing he's been able to do reliably is rack up fouls. Even if he plays the Warriors might run him off the court so him missing tomorrow's game shouldn't be terrible. What could be terrible is if the Wizards decide to use Jason Smith a lot. It looks like Jeff Green may be pressed into heavy minutes with the Wizards going super small.

    Ian Mahinmi is dealing with back spasms and is questionable to return to Monday's game.

    Dwight Howard isn't with the Wizards on their five-game road trip, so they could be forced to play super small with Markieff Morris and Jason Smith if Mahinmi misses time. It'll also open up minutes for wing players like Kelly Oubre and Austin Rivers.

    Ian Mahinmi managed just two points, six rebounds, one steal an done block over 17 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Raptors.

    Mahinmi is capable of posting big man stats when he's healthy and getting minutes, but he should end up on waiver wires once Dwight Howard returns.

  • Ian Mahinmi - C - Washington Wizards

    Ian Mahinmi scored 11 points and added four rebounds and an assist in Friday’s 140-111 drubbing of the Guangzhou Long-Lions.

    It was against the Long-Lions but Mahinmi looks like the starter until Dwight Howard (back) is healthy enough to return. Despite that, he probably won’t be worth a look in standard leagues. Otto Porter chipped in 11 points (two 3s) in eight minutes. Former NBA player Mo Speights led the outgunned Long-Lions with 41 points.

  • Ian Mahinmi - C - Washington Wizards

    Ian Mahinmi played 21 minutes in Monday's win over the Enes Kanter-less Knicks, posting 11 points, four rebounds, two blocks and a 3-pointer.

    Mahinmi is looking like Washington's opening night starter given Dwight Howard's back troubles and should be on your radar as a big man who can pick up steals and blocks in a hurry. He also hit his second 3-pointer of the preseason tonight, which might be something to watch going forward. It's likely that Mahinmi would've played more had the Knicks dressed a bigger lineup, so you can project him a little more aggressively than this. He's a late-round flier with short-term appeal.

  • Ian Mahinmi - C - Washington Wizards

    Ian Mahinmi started in place of Dwight Howard again on Friday night and was productive with 11 points, four rebounds, two steals and two blocks.

    Mahinmi missed only one of his four shots and hit all five free throws in his 24 minutes. There's no doubt that Howard will return to the starting spot when he's healthy but if he were to ever miss time (which is a definite possibility), Mahinmi has shown a nice ability to collect steals and blocks in the past and would be worth your attention.

    Ian Mahinmi is starting at center on Tuesday night.

    He's just keeping the seat warm for Dwight Howard (back). Don't expect to see a ton of him this year.
