Mahinmi scored four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 FT) and collected a season-high 12 rebounds to go along with three assists, two blocks, and a steal over 28 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bulls. It's the first time in 10 games that Mahinmi has exceeded double-digit boards. The Pacers' starting center is averaging a career-high 24.1 minutes per game and offers steady play on the defensive end, but his lack of aptitude offensively will prevent him from consistently challenging for double-doubles.
Mahinmi (back) managed six points (3-8 FG, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists, and three blocks in 25 minutes during the Pacers' 90-87 win versus the Heat on Friday. Mahinmi left Tuesday's game versus the Pistons, and missed Wednesday's contest versus the Celtics before returning to the lineup on Friday versus the Heat. Mahinmi will provide size and strength down low for the Pacers, especially against teams with physically dominant centers, but he is unlikely to be much of a fantasy factor outside of much deeper leagues.
Mahinmi (back) will start Friday against the Heat, Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star reports. Mahinmi missed Wednesday's contest against the Celtics due to soreness in his lower back, but will return to the starting lineup Friday. As a result, Myles Turner and Jordan Hill will likely return to their usual roles barring any setback to Mahinmi.
Mahinmi (back) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Celtics. Mahinmi prematurely exited Tuesday's game against the Pistons with soreness in his lower back which has apparently lingered into Wednesday. In his absence, rookie Myles Turner and Jordan Hill are expected to see extra minutes.
Mahinmi (back) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game agains the Celtics. Mahinmi left Tuesday's game in the first half due to soreness in his back, and he's apparently still battling the issue as of Wednesday afternoon. The big man will likely test out the back during warmups, after which team doctors will update his status. If he's held out, Jordan Hill and Myles Turner would see increased minutes in a thin Indiana frontcourt.
