Mahinmi (calf) has been ruled out for Wednesday's Game 5 against Atlanta, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.
Mahinmi stated earlier Tuesday that he expects to return before the end of Washington's first round series, but coach Scott Brooks quickly shut down any speculation that the big man could be back for Game 5. Mahinmi is yet to participate in practices or shootarounds, so until that happens he'll likely remain in street clothes. Brooks called Mahimni doubtful for Friday's Game 6, but further details should emerge later in the week.
Mahinmi (calf) is expected to return during the first-round series against the Hawks but has yet to practice, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
The backup center is ahead of schedule in his recovery from strained calf but has to pass certain physical challenges before returning to the rotation. His absence from practice thus far makes a comeback for Wednesday's Game 5 seem skeptical, but look for official updates to come after Wednesday morning shootaround. Should he be ruled out, expect Jason Smith to continue backing up starter Marcin Gortat.
Wall scored 22 points (7-19 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT) to go along with 10 assists, five rebounds and two steals across 41 minutes of action during Monday's 111-101 loss to the Hawks.
Though his shot didn't fall consistently and he wound up with a series low in scoring, Wall was effective as a playmaker and recorded his first double-double since Game 1. It was a solid performance from the 26-year-old, but he will need to maintain a higher level as a scorer if his team is to pull out a series that seems destined to go to the wire. With that said, he is still averaging 28.8 points (on 51 percent FG, 58 percent 3Pt) to go along with 10 assists per game through the first four, and should be expected to come out hot in Game 5 at home.
Beal scored 32 points (11-23 FG, 5-14 3Pt, 5-5 3Pt) to go along with five rebounds, two assists and two steals across 39 minutes during Monday's 111-101 loss to the Hawks.
Beal led all players in both points and shot attempts in this one, draining five treys after failing to knock down a single attempt from beyond the arc in Game 3. He has shot just 42 percent from the floor and 27 percent from three during the series, but his whopping 22.8 field goal tries per game have still led to an average of 24.3 points per game over the first four. Beal's efficacy on the offensive end will be crucial to his team as they go blow for blow with Atlanta and he will look to put on a similar performance on home court the next time out.
Porter (neck) will play in Monday's Game 4 against Atlanta, J. Michael of CSN Mid Atlantic reports.
As expected, Porter has been officially cleared to play in Game 4 after going through a full shootaround Monday morning. The wing suffered a strained neck during the Wizards' Game 3 blowout loss, but the injury was never considered overly serious.
