Mahinmi (calf) has been ruled for Saturday's Game 3 and Monday's Game 4 against the Hawks, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports. Mahinmi had already been ruled out for Game 3 as early as Tuesday, and the fact that he has already been ruled out for Game 4 hints that the big man is not that close to a return from the calf strain. Until he is able to put in on-court work, Mahinmi will remain without a timetable for a return, and Jason Smith will continue to serve as Marcin Gortat's primary backup.
Mahinmi (calf) will be sidelined for Wednesday's Game 2 and Saturday's Game 3 against the Hawks, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. The reserve center, who sat out Tuesday's practice while continuing to recover from a strained calf, likely won't be considered close to a return until he's able to put in an on-court workout. In Mahinmi's absence, expect starting center Marcin Gortat to hold down a heavier workload, while Jason Smith, who saw 13 minutes and provided one rebound and one block in Game 1, will act as Gortat's main backup.
Mahinmi (calf) remained sidelined at Tuesday's practice, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports. The big man continues to be bothered by a calf strain, and the expectation is that he'll remain out for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Hawks, and likely longer. Mahinmi is set to be evaluated sometime later in the week, at which point a clearer timetable should be available. The series shifts to Atlanta for Game 3 on Saturday.
Mahinmi (calf) will miss the start of the postseason, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports. Earlier Wednesday, the Wizards formally ruled Mahinmi out of Wednesday's regular season finale, and the backup center is now expected to miss a few more contests due to a strained left calf. Mahinmi underwent an MRI, which revealed swelling, and he'll be reevaluated in 7-to-10 days. With the Wizards set to begin postseason play Saturday or Sunday, Mahinmi will miss a minimum of two playoff games, and likely more. "Hopefully he feels better then, but you never know," coach Scott Brooks said. "But he's definitely going to miss the first couple of games [of the playoffs]."
Mahinmi (calf) will be sidelined for Wednesday's game against the Heat. Mahinmi logged 22 minutes Monday before suffering a calf strain, which is apparently serious enough to keep him sidelined for Wednesday's regular season finale against the Heat. With starting center Marcin Gortat set for limited minutes Wednesday, expect Jason Smith to see extended run at center, while it's possible that deep reserves Daniel Ochefu and Chris McCullough see time on the floor.
