Description: Indiana backup center Ian Mahinmi (sprained right ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's game against San Antonio.
Insight: Mahinmi's x-rays were negative, but it was thought he'd be out for a while. Lavoy Allen will also miss game. Roy Hibbert will get his normal minutes, but Mahinmi's return would hurt Luis Scola's value.

Description: Indiana backup center Ian Mahinmi (sprained right ankle) isn't expected to play for a while.
Insight: Mahinmi's x-rays were negative, but it's a severe sprain and he's a big guy. Lavoy Allen will also miss Friday's game, so Roy Hibbert should be in for a lot of minutes. Luis Scola figures to get the backup work.

Description: Indiana backup center Ian Mahinmi suffered a torn plantar fascia Friday and will miss the next up to two months.
Insight: Lavoy Allen should see additional minutes as Roy Hibbert's backup or the team could go "small" and play more with Luis Scola.
11/24/2014 2:31:00 PM
Description: Indiana backup center Ian Mahinmi will get a start with Roy Hibbert's ankle injury already knocking him out of Monday's game.
Insight: Mahinmi did post a solid 12 points and 10 rebound on Saturday, but you can't depend on his scoring ability.

Description: Indiana backup center Ian Mahinmi is questionable for Friday's game against Philadelphia due to a bruised left hip.
Insight: Mahinmi is the backup for Roy Hibbert ... at least until Andrew Bynum is healthier. Bynum will also miss Friday's game so barring foul trouble Hibbert could see a heavy workload.

Description: Indiana backup center Ian Mahinmi is questionable for Tuesday's game against Boston due to a bruised left hip.
Insight: Mahinmi is the backup for Roy Hibbert and has little fantasy value. Soon Andrew Bynum will be ready and Mahinmi will drop further down the depth chart.

Description: Indiana center Ian Mahinmi made his first start of the season Thursday against the Clippers.
Insight: Mahinmi is filling in for Roy Hibbert, who is serving a one-game suspension for fighting Golden State's David Lee. Mahinmi has only reached double-digit points nine times in 57 appearances this season. We don't envision Mahinmi being a fantasy option even in deeper formats.

Description: Pacers backup center Ian Mahinmi is probable for Monday's game against Memphis.
Insight: Mahinmi only has value to fantasy owners when Roy Hibbert is not in the lineup.
1/10/2013 10:46:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Ian Mahinmi scored 13 points on 6-of-7 shooting with six boards in 20 minutes Thursday versus the Knicks.
Insight: Mahinmi was the only Pacer besides Paul George who scored in double figures. Mahinmi's performance was key in a game Roy Hibbert left twice due to back spasms.
4/6/2012 7:32:00 PM
Description: Ian Mahinmi won't play Friday against the Trail Blazers. Mahinmi's fiance is giving birth to his child.
Insight: Brendan Haywood (5.6 ppg, 6.6 rpg) and Brandan Wright (6.3 ppg, 3.1 rpg) should both see plenty of minutes at center tonight.
3/29/2012 8:56:00 PM
Description: Even with Brendan Haywood active for tonight's game, Ian Mahinmi still got the start at center for the Mavericks.
Insight: With the first half winding down, Haywood has still yet to enter the game for Dallas. It looks like Mahinmi is in the clear, at least for tonight. Mahinmi has four points and one rebound in his seven minutes on the court so far.
