    Ian Mahinmi returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday night, finishing a win over the Celtics with three points and eight rebounds in 21 minutes.

    Mahinmi cleared the concussion protocol rather quickly and only missed one contest. He might be in line for more work tomorrow night if the Wizards opt to rest Marcin Gortat, but he's going to be tough to trust if both end up active.

    Ian Mahinmi will return from a one-game absence on Tuesday against the Celtics.

    Mahinmi was dealing with a concussion but is ready to square off in a potential first-round matchup tonight. Get him out there if you need a low-end big man.

    Game notes have Ian Mahinmi on the injury report for tonight’s game against the Celtics.

    Mahinmi missed the Wizards’ last game after being placed in the concussion protocol and is now in danger to miss Tuesday’s game as well. Regardless, his fantasy production remains limited as long as Martin Gortat is healthy and avoids foul trouble.

    Scott Brooks isn't sure of Ian Mahinmi's status for Monday's practice or Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    Mahinmi is dealing with a concussion. He's a sneaky play in deep leagues for defensive stats and has eaten into Marcin Gortat's second-half workload for the second year in a row but the lack of clarity surrounding his status means that most owners should be actively looking for alternatives.

    Ian Mahinmi (concussion) will not play on Friday vs. the Hawks.

    With Mahinmi out, Marcin Gortat might get more run, though if it quickly turns into a blowout against the lowly Hawks, look for Mike Scott to take advantage.

    Mike Scott (illness) is available to play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

    Scott had a nice stretch of value earlier this season without Markieff Morris and Ian Mahinmi, but with those two back, he hasn’t been close to being an option for standard leagues. Jodie Meeks (illness) is also available and also not an option.

  • Marcin Gortat
    C, Washington Wizards

    Marcin Gortat rose from the dead to score 18 points with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block over 25 minutes in Saturday’s win over the Pacers.

    Gortat has shown a propensity to turn the switch on and off during his recent career, but this year he has been decidedly off and outside the top-150.  One of the triggers for a bounce back could be John Wall’s eventual return, but otherwise owners have to look at this as the exception rather than the rule until he proves otherwise.  Ian Mahinmi doused any progress with five points, five boards and no defensive stats in nine minutes tonight.

    Ian Mahinmi outplayed Marcin Gortat again on Wednesday night, racking up 14 points, 11 rebounds, a steal and a block in 26 minutes of action.

    It’s shaping up like a repeat of last season when Mahinmi stayed in a reserve role but wrestled most of the minutes away. He’s always been a capable producer of defensive stats and rebounds and certainly looks more appealing than Gortat for the moment. Give Mahinmi a look in 14-16 team formats if you need help in the aforementioned categories.

    Ian Mahinmi posted a solid line in 23 minutes off the bench on Tuesday night, picking up 10 points, nine rebounds, two steals and a block while shooting 5-of-7 from the field.

    Mahinmi was a bear on the offensive end, picking up five of his boards on the offensive glass. Marcin Gortat dealt with a little foul trouble tonight, finishing with 24 minutes, six points and two rebounds. Mahinmi was able to flip the script late last season and wound up a significantly more impactful fantasy option than Gortat down the stretch, and while it’s been more of a slow burn this time it’s hard to debate that Mahinmi has steadily improved throughout the year. He’s not worth a pickup just yet — deep leaguers who need boards and defensive stats can ignore that — but he’s certainly doing all he can to render Gortat droppable in standard leagues.

  • Marcin Gortat
    C, Washington Wizards

    Marcin Gortat played only 14 minutes in Wednesday’s loss to the Warriors, finishing with two points, three rebounds, three assists and a minus-19 on the evening.

    It’s not fair to judge a traditional big man like Gortat when they’re facing the Warriors, but it is worth noting that Ian Mahinmi saw 16 minutes and was able to post four points, three rebounds, one steal and one block. Mahinmi ended up taking the lion’s share of minutes down the stretch last season and it could be happening again this year, so owners in standard leagues may need to move on from Gortat if that situation ends up repeating itself.
