Mohammed played one minute and grabbed a rebound in Tuesday's 118-94 Game 4 win over the Warriors.
The 24-point margin of victory enabled Mohammed to see the floor for the first time this series. The Thunder typically count on Steven Adams, Enes Kanter and Serge Ibaka to handle all the minutes at center, so Mohammed probably won't be needed to play meaningful minutes in the postseason so long as those three options remain healthy.
Mohammed (coach's decision) didn't play in Monday's 98-97 Game 2 win over the Spurs.
Though Mohammed was active for the contest, he's still viewed as the 13th man on the roster, which will prevent him from taking the court most nights. Mohammed has played in just two of the Thunder's seven postseason games and only seven of the team's 27 games in total since signing with the team in early March.
Mohammed signed a contract with the Thunder on Saturday that will keep him with the team for the remainder of the season, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
After striking out in their efforts to add a playoff-eligible player who was recently bought of his contract, the Thunder opted to round out their 15-man roster by bringing back Mohammed, who previously played with the team in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 campaigns. The 38-year-old most recently saw action with the Bulls last season, with whom he averaged 1.2 points and 1.7 rebounds over 5.6 minutes in 23 appearances. He'll likely assume a similar deep reserve role for the Thunder.
