Mahinmi registered 11 points (4-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block over 25 minutes Tuesday against Boston. Mahinmi didn't quite have his shot working from the field, but he did knock home two of his three attempts from downtown and secured his first double-double of the year in the regular season finale. He failed to factor into Washington's rotation on a consistent basis during the 2018-2019 campaign and averaged 3.9 points along with 3.5 boards over 33 matchups.
Mahinmi finished with two points and seven rebounds in 20 minutes during Sunday's 113-110 loss to New York. Mahinmi actually saw some playing time Sunday, making just his second appearance in over two months. Despite the loss of Dwight Howard (back) for the season, Mahinmi has been clearly superseded in the rotation by Thomas Bryant and should not be on anyone's radar at this stage.
Mahinmi (coach's decision) didn't see the floor Wednesday in the Wizards' 148-129 loss to the Bucks. It's the second time in three games that Mahinmi has failed to play, and his lone appearance during that span was just eight minutes in length. While the Wizards have been short on center depth since Dwight Howard required lower-back surgery in late November, coach Scott Brooks has mostly been inclined to use small-ball lineups rather than relying on Mahinmi when starter Thomas Bryant is on the bench. Mahinmi's path to playing time became even more muddled Wednesday, when the Wizards acquired two more frontcourt options from the Bulls in Bobby Portis and Jabari Parker.
Mahinmi (thumb) has been cleared to play Tuesday against the Cavaliers. As expected, the center will take the floor. In January, he's averaged 4.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.2 assists across 15.2 minutes.
Mahinmi (thumb) is expected to be ready to play Tuesday against Cleveland, Spencer Davies of Bball Insiders reports. Mahinmi has missed two of his team's previous three contests due to a right thumb sprain, but head coach Scott Brooks believes Mahinmi "should be good" for Tuesday's clash. Even if Mahinmi is cleared, he's averaged a mere 11.2 minutes over his last five contests.
