Mahinmi posted 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, an assist a steal and a blocked shot in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 125-124 win over the Celtics. Mahinmi notched his first double-double of the season in this double-overtime matchup and actually logged more minutes than starter Marcin Gortat, who struggled mightily with his shot on Wednesday. While a shift in the starting lineup isn't imminent just yet, Mahinmi is slowly waking up as a key contributor off the bench and could contend for more time if Gortat continues to underperform.
Mahinmi registered 10 points, (5-7 FG), nine rebounds, two steals and one block across 23 minutes during a 116-111 loss to the Timberwolves on Tuesday. Mahinmi nearly secured his first double-double of the season in Tuesday's loss as he fell just one rebound short. The two steals also marked his best total since Feb. 5. Mahinmi had scored a combined total of 10 points across the previous four games, so don't expect a repeat performance from him.
Mahinmi put up eight points (3-5 FG, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one block in 23 minutes during Sunday's 98-95 loss to the Pacers. Mahinmi continues to come off the bench behind Marcin Gortat but saw more court-time than the Polish big-man, finishing within sight of a double-double. Mahinmi doesn't offer much upside but is arguably the better option for the Wizards in the center position and could be useful in deeper leagues as the playoffs draw ever nearer.
Mahinmi recorded 17 points (7-8 FG, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, three blocks, one assist, and one steal in 21 minutes during Friday's 125-119 win over the Magic. Mahinmi managed season highs in points and blocks while earning 20-plus minutes for the seventh time through 40 appearances in 2017-18. All seven of those outings have come in Mahinmi's last 21 tilts, so he is trending upward even though he remains an inconsistent fantasy option. Unless Marcin Gortat gets traded or injured, Mahinmi's role will likely continue to be limited.
Mahinmi (knee), according to coach Scott Brooks, has a "good chance" of playing Friday against the Clippers, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. This news makes it seem like Mahinmi, who has been sidelined over the past two games, should be considered probable rather than questionable. More word should emerge as Mahinmi goes through pre-game warmups. If he's held out again, Jason Smith should continue to get additional run.
