Mahinmi (concussion) will play Tuesday against the Celtics, Ben Standig of TheSportsCapitol.com reports. Mahinmi missed Friday's loss due to a concussion, but after getting the weekend off, the center is ready to return to the court. Look for him to resume his regular role off the bench, where he has averaged 15 minutes per game over the past month.
Mahinmi (concussion) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Celtics, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports. Mahinmi missed Friday's game against the Hawks with a concussion and is apparently still working his way through the NBA's protocol. Coach Scott Brooks wouldn't commit to Mahinmi being available for Monday's practice or Tuesday's game against the Celtics, so at this point, there isn't a whole lot of optimism for a return in the next couple of days. That said, another update should be provided on Monday depending on his availability for the Wizards' practice session.
Mahinmi is listed as out for Friday's contest against the Hawks due to a concussion. It's not exactly clear when Mahinmi suffered the concussion, though it'll keep him out Friday and possibly longer depending on how quickly he can pass through protocol. While he's out, Jason Smith could see extra run. Markieff Morris could also see extra run at center, forcing Mike Scott or Kelly Oubre into a bigger role.
Mahinmi managed two points (1-3 FG), two rebounds, two blocks and one steal through 11 minutes of action during the Wizards 119-115 loss at the Cavaliers. Mahinmi was a non-factor off the bench for the Wizards Thursday, as he also turned the ball over three times. Currently, the France native is averaging 4.8 points and 4.0 rebounds in 14.8 minutes over 75 games played this season.
Mahinmi supplied 12 points (4-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals across 24 minutes in Wednesday's 98-90 loss to the Spurs. It was the continuation of a progressively emerging usage trend, as Mahinmi once again outpaced starter Marcin Gortat in playing time while notching his third double-digit scoring effort in the last four games. The 10-year veteran has actually seen well over 20 minutes in all three of those contests, but in a testament to how drastically his opportunities can still vary, he's also logged single-digit minutes in three other outings during March. Therefore, while certainly a solid scorer and rebounder when given the minutes, Mahinmi remains a somewhat risky night-to-night play, whether in deep season-long or daily formats.
