Mahinmi announced Tuesday during an appearance on BeIn Sports' "NBA Extra Show" that he has retired from professional basketball. After not finding an opportunity at the NBA level or playing overseas in 2020-21, the 34-year-old Mahinmi had already looked to be trending toward retirement, but it wasn't until Tuesday that he officially confirmed as much. A 2005 first-round pick, Mahinmi spent parts of 12 seasons in the NBA with San Antonio, Dallas, Indiana and Washington, bringing most of his value on the defensive end. He retires with averages of 5.2 points and 4.4 rebounds in 16.8 minutes per game over 618 career regular-season appearances. He captured his lone NBA championship as a member of the Mavericks in 2010-11.
Mahinmi (groin) is available for Saturday's scrimmage against the Clippers, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. Mahinmi missed the Wizards' first scrimmage while dealing with a minor groin injury. Since then, he's healed, and he'll take the court against the Clippers.
Mahinmi will not play in Wednesday's scrimmage against the Nuggets due to a groin injury, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports. The injury isn't anything serious, but the Wizards are opting to be extra cautious for a scrimmage. With Thomas Bryant likely to only play around eight minutes as well, Moritz Wagner should see plenty of action.
Per head coach Scott Brooks, Mahinmi (foot) will play on Friday against the Cavaliers. After initially being deemed questionable on Thursday for Friday's game against the Cavaliers, Mahinmi will suit up. Following the all-star break, the big man will look to continue a relatively impressive year in which he has averaged a career high in blocks per game.
Mahinmi is questionable for Friday's contest against Cleveland due to a right foot injury, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports. It's unclear exactly how Mahinmi suffered the foot injury, as the center nearly tallied a double-double over 30 minutes of action in the Wizards' final contest before the All-Star break. Nevertheless, Mahinmi is officially deemed questionable Friday.
