    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 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 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 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.

    Wizards GM Ernie Grunfeld said Monday that the team is comfortable with Ian Mahinmi as the starting center.

    Marcin Gortat was finally traded away but Grunfeld doesn't take issue with Mahinmi's role expanding. "He's a proven starting center. He's won playoff series as a starting center. … We would be comfortable with that." He also added that the Wizards are talking to other players but would be fine rolling with Mahinmi, so it's possible that this is only a temporary look. The big Frenchman can actually be a pretty solid player but his health has hampered him since leaving Indiana. If he does end up as the starter, Mahinmi can be a sneaky fantasy play as a cheap source of rebounds, steals and blocks. In 2016-17 he averaged 1.1 steals and 0.5 blocks in 17.9 minutes while he posted 0.5 and 0.5 respectively this past season in just 14.9 minutes. Something in the mid-twenties would return late-round production.

    Mike Scott didn’t miss a shot on Friday night, hitting 4-for-4 to end up with 12 points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal and two 3-pointers in the Wizards’ win over the Raptors.

    The Threegional Manager did his part on Friday night, knocking down every shot attempt including two from deep. He played a large part in the Wizards’ bench stepping up to draw blood in this series and make it 2-1, Toronto. Kelly Oubre chipped in 12 points, four rebounds, two blocks and a steal. Ian Mahinmi scored six to go with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and three huge blocks. Even Ty Lawson added a little something, hitting a 3 as the 3rd quarter expired. Washington’s bench adding literally anything is a far cry from how things went in Games 1 and 2. Let’s see if it can continue on their home floor in Sunday’s Game 4.

    Mike Scott is still in the NBA’s concussion protocol and is questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Raptors.

    Scott got hit in the noggin during Wednesday’s game and remains in the NBA’s concussion protocol. If he isn’t cleared before Saturday’s game 1, look for Kelly Oubre, Ian Mahinmi and maybe even Jason Smith to get extra run.

    Ian Mahinmi logged 17 minutes, scored three points and pulled down five boards in the season finale Wednesday vs. Orlando.

    Mahinmi put up 14.9 minutes per game despite being paid $16.6 million in his already tenth season, putting him in the exclusive more-money-than-minutes club. Mahinmi was not on fantasy radars this year except for small stretches in the deepest of leagues. His per-36 numbers were not horrible. If the Wizards decide to cut ties with Marcin Gortat, without getting a competent replacement, than Mahinmi may be able to be useful next season, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.
