Mahinmi will start Saturday's matchup against the Grizzlies.
Mahinmi will make the start due to Thomas Bryant (foot) and Mo Wagner (ankle) being sidelined. In 98 career games as a starter, Mahinmi has averaged 8.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 24.9 minutes.
Mahinmi produced nine points (4-4 FG, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 18 minutes during Sunday's 135-119 loss to the Clippers.
Mahinmi had his best game of the season Sunday, outplaying Mo Wagner, who remained in the starting unit. Mahinmi has been a non-factor thus far this season and this would appear to be more of a matchup-based highlight. Mahinmi has the ability to collect blocks and rebounds in bunches, but the playing time is typically far too low. Wagner should continue to start and with a favorable matchup against the Hornets, Mahinmi could revert back to his normal production.
Mahinmi (rest) isn't included on the Wizards' injury report for Sunday's game against the Clippers.
Mahinmi sat out the Wizards' previous game Friday against the Heat, which was the second half of a back-to-back set. Washington may continue to rest the veteran occasionally throughout the season as a measure to manage his workload coming off an Achilles injury that sidelined him earlier in the campaign, but he looks poised to serve as the backup to Moritz Wagner in most games while Thomas Bryant (foot) is likely out through around mid-January.
Mahinmi was ruled out for Friday's game against the Heat to manage his Achilles injury.
The 33-year-old made his season debut in Thursday's win over the 76ers and had seven points and five rebounds in 13 minutes, but he apparently isn't ready to play both halves of a back-to-back set while coming off the Achilles injury. Moritz Wagner, Rui Hachimura and Davis Bertans figure to handle the bulk of the frontcourt work Friday for the Wizards, while Mahinmi will return to the fold Sunday versus the Clippers.
Mahinmi (Achilles) logged 13 minutes off the bench in Thursday's 119-113 win over the 76ers, finishing with seven points (2-5 FG, 3-4 FT) and five rebounds.
Mahinmi looked good in his first action of the season after an Achilles injury kept him sidelined for the first 19 games. He could see a slight uptick in playing time once the injury is further in the rear-view mirror, but the 7-13 Wizards will likely turn to Moritz Wagner to handle the bulk of the minutes at center while starter Thomas Bryant (foot) is sidelined into January. The Wizards will wrap up a back-to-back set Friday in Miami, so Mahinmi could be a candidate to sit out as part of a load-management program.
Mahinmi (Achilles) is available Thursday against the 76ers, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Mahinmi has been cleared to make his season debut after missing the first 19 games with an Achilles injury. He should serve as the team's backup center while Thomas Bryant (foot) is on the mend.
Mahinmi (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the 76ers.
Mahinmi has yet to play this season due to a right Achilles strain, though he resumed practicing last week and appears to be nearing a return. His status should clear up closer to tip-off.
Mahinmi (Achilles) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Orlando.
Mahinmi will miss another game while on the mend from a right Achilles strain. He resumed practicing with Capital City nearly one week ago and appears to be closing in on a return, though an exact timetable has yet to be revealed.
Mahinmi (Achilles) has been practicing with the G League's Capital City Go-Go this week amid Washington's two-game road trip, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Mahinmi is working back from a right Achilles' strain, which sidelined him for all of training camp, the preseason and the first month of the regular season. The 33-year-old is now nearing a return to the court, but due to the extensive time he missed, he may be sidelined for at least a few more contests while he aims to regain conditioning. Once cleared for his 2019-20 debut, Mahinmi will likely slot in as the third-string center behind Thomas Bryant and Moritz Wagner.
Mahinmi (Achilles) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Kings.
Mahinmi has been sidelined since late September with a strained right Achilles' tendon and remains without a concrete timeline for a return. Even when he's healthy again, Mahinmi seems unlikely to be a regular member of coach Scott Brooks' rotation with Moritz Wagner thriving as the top backup to starting center Thomas Bryant.
Mahinmi (Achilles) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.
Mahinmi was cleared to resume practicing in limited fashion earlier this month, but the Wizards haven't provided many further updates on his status since then. The veteran center thus remains without a clear timeline for a return and seems destined to miss at least a few more games while he recovers from a strained right Achilles' tendon.
Mahinmi (Achilles) was a limited participant in practice Sunday, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Mahinmi, who has been dealing with a strained right Achilles since the beginning of October, returned to the practiced floor Sunday but was only able to shoot. The center is anticipated to be out until mid-November, although it appears that Mahinmi may be closer to returning than originally expected.
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.
