Mahinmi is dealing with a strained right Achilles and will remain out before being re-evaluated in six weeks, Andrew Joe Potter of The Score reports.
The injury will keep him out of the entirety of training camp, as well as the first three weeks of the regular season. As a result, the Wizards will be rather shorthanded at center behind starter Thomas Bryant to begin the campaign. Moritz Wagner and rookie Rui Hachimura could pick up a few extra minutes on the second unit.
Mahinmi is dealing with a sore Achilles and will not be available to practice Tuesday, Wizards TV host Chris Miller reports.
It's unclear if the issue is anything to worry about long-term, but the veteran will begin the preseason on the shelf. Mahinmi's tenure in Washington has been mostly disappointing, and he'll once again battle for backup center minutes this season behind Thomas Bryant.
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 Despite the loss of Dwight Howard (back) for the season, Mahinmi has been clearly superseded in the rotation by Thomas Bryant and should not be on anyone's radar at this stage.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.
Mahinmi (thumb) went through shootaround and will be a game-time decision Tuesday in Cleveland.
Mahinmi has missed just one contest due to a sprained right thumb, and he could be on track to play given his participation in shootaround Tuesday. Look for Mahinmi to test out the injury pregame before a decision on his status is made.
Mahinmi (thumb) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against Cleveland.
Mahinmi was held out of Sunday's contest due to a sprained right thumb, and his status remains up in the air with Tuesday's matchup on the horizon. Expect another update on Mahinmi's status as tipoff nears.
Mahinmi (thumb) won't play Sunday against San Antonio, Chris Miller of NBCS Washington reports.
Mahinmi will be held out of Sunday's contest after previously being listed questionable hours before tipoff. The Wizards will be thin at the center position with Mahinmi out of the mix, as Markieff Morris (neck) and Dwight Howard (back) are also both out due to injury. Expect Thomas Bryant to shoulder the load down low.
Mahinmi is dealing with a right thumb sprain and has been downgraded to questionable for Sunday's game against the Spurs.
The Wizards had previously labeled Mahinmi as probable on their initial injury report released Saturday, but there's apparently more concern about his status a day later. If Mahinmi ends up sitting out Sunday, starting center Thomas Bryant would likely handle an enhanced role. Jeff Green and Otto Porter could also be asked to play some more minutes in the frontcourt as part of small-ball lineups.
Mahinmi (undisclosed) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Spurs, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
It's unclear what Mahinmi is dealing with, but it doesn't appear to be anything that will force him to miss any action. Look for his status to clear up closer to tip-off.
Mahinmi was limited to seven minutes in Sunday's 140-138 double-overtime loss to the Raptors. He finished with four points (2-3 FG), two rebounds and one assist.
Mahinmi's stock appeared to be on the rise after he averaged 8.3 points, 8.3 boards, 2.7 steals, 2.3 assists and 1.3 blocks in a three-game span, but he's been limited to fewer than 10 minutes the past two contests. The lack of playing time Sunday was particularly noteworthy given that 10 extra minutes were available at center with the two overtime periods. It appears any uptick in use Mahinmi receives will come mostly when the Wizards face bigger centers, with starter Thomas Bryant handling an even greater share of the minutes versus lankier, floor-stretching fives like the Raptors' Serge Ibaka.
Mahinmi totaled 10 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 202 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, two blocks and a steal in 16 minutes Tuesday against Philadelphia.
After approaching a double-double Sunday, Mahinmi had perhaps his best all-around game of the year, scoring in double-figures for the third-time this season and tying a career-high with five dimes. Mahinmi's playing time has ticked up recently, but he's still averaging just 14.5 minutes on the year, and has cracked 20 minutes just five time on the season. Until he's given a steadier role, Mahinmi can't be considered an option in standard formats.
Mahinmi logged 25 minutes off the bench and finished with nine points (4-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 boards, two steals, two blocks and one assist Sunday in the Wizards' 116-98 win over the Thunder.
While the Wizards' comfortable margin of victory inflated Mahinmi's playing time, the veteran center has nonetheless resurfaced as a rotation option with Markieff Morris (neck) recently joining Dwight Howard (back) on the team's injured list. Mahinmi's playing time will likely dwindle in matchups with teams that lean on small-ball lineups, but he should at least crack the 10-minute barrier in the next two games with back-to-back matchups on tap Tuesday and Wednesday versus Joel Embiid and the 76ers.
Mahinmi managed two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) in 10 minutes during Friday's 123-98 loss to the 76ers.
Mahinmi saw his first game action since Nov. 16, as coach Scott Brooks has relied on more small-ball lineups compared to back in October. Even with Dwight Howard (lower body) undergoing surgery and being expected to miss the next couple months, Mahinmi can likely be left on waiver wires.
Mahinmi will come off the bench for Friday's game against the Thunder.
Mahinmi took on a prominent role over the last few games, but with he will return to a role off the bench with Dwight Howard (back) returning to the lineup Friday. Howard could be facing a minutes restriction in his first game back, however, so Mahinmi still could get some decent usage as a reserve for the time being.
Mahinmi managed 11 points (3-5 FG, 5-6 FT) and seven rebounds across 29 minutes in the Wizards' 136-104 loss to the Clippers on Sunday. He's averaging 7.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.0 steal in his two games since returning from a one-game absence due to a back injury.
Mahinmi continues to log starts for Dwight Howard (back), with Sunday's outing by far his most productive to date. The 11-year veteran was uncharacteristically involved on the offensive end, with his five shot attempts a season high. Mahinmi's primary fantasy contributions come from his work on the boards, and he's expected to only log minutes in the teens once Howard, who did not travel with the team on the current West Coast road trip, is back in action.
Mahinmi (back) is available for Friday's game against the Kings, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Mahinmi made it through morning shootaround and apparently feels good enough to give it a go. With Dwight Howard (back) still out, Mahinmi will once again draw the start at center.
Mahinmi (back) went through morning shootaround and is a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Kings, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Mahinmi's participation in morning shootaround is encouraging. However, the team will seemingly wait until closer to tipoff to confirm his availability.
