Ian Mahinmi C IND 8 Days

Mahinmi scored 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 FT) and added nine rebounds one steal and one block in 27 minutes of action on Friday.

Mahinmi, in his third year with the Pacers, is returning from a foot injury, but he was able to log good minutes and played well off the bench in the Pacer's loss against the Pistons on Friday. As long as he stays healthy, which has been difficult for Mahinmi, he can produce modest points and rebounds while adding a block a game.

Mahinmi (foot) returned to action after missing the previous 18 games due to a torn left plantar fascia. He scored one point (1-2 FT) in four minutes.

Mahinmi will likely be brought along slowly. He was averaging 18.3 minutes per game prior to the injury. Once the team extends his playing time, Lavoy Allen and Luis Scola could lose minutes.

Mahinmi (foot) failed to play Friday against the Boston Celtics, despite the belief he was going to suit up and participate.

Mahinmi wasn't going to be forced into action, as Roy Hibbert was there to take the bulk of the minutes. He hasn't played since Dec. 5, but considering most thought he was going to participate in Friday's game, there's a high possibility he comes back and plays in Indiana's matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday. Even if he plays though, he'll probably be limited in his minutes, so continue to hold him out of your lineups until coach Frank Vogel feels comfortable giving him a full game's worth of work.

Mahinmi (foot) will in fact play against the Celtics on Friday despite the earlier reports that he would be sidelined.

Mahinmi hasn't played since Dec. 5 and will likely be eased back into action Friday. With Roy Hibbert (ankle) expected to play Friday as well, there's not much reason to believe that Mahinmi will eclipse the 18.3 minutes per game mark that he's averaged over 20 contests this season.

Mahinmi (foot) is officially questionable for Friday's game against the Celtics.

Mahinmi's status being listed as questionable for Friday is a bit surprising given that he is just four weeks into his initial six-to-eight week timetable. He is dealing with a torn left plantar fascia, and there is no indication that he has returned to practice, so it would be an even bigger surprise if he ends up playing Thursday. Regardless, he should receive an update prior to tipoff.

Mahinmi (foot) will miss six-to-eight weeks with a torn left plantar fascia.

Mahinmi left Friday's game with what was diagnosed as a sore left foot, but now has been revealed that something much more severe occurred. His injury could open up extra minutes for a combination of Luis Scola, Shayne Whittington, Damjan Rudez and possibly Roy Hibbert as well depending on how the rotation changes.

Mahinmi left Friday's game with a sore left foot and will not return, the Sacramento Bee's Jason Jones reports.

As the Pacers' backup center, Mahinmi carries very little fantasy value, but his absence could mean slightly more playing time for starter Roy Hibbert. Consider Mahinmi day-to-day.

Mahinmi took advantage of extra playing time due to Roy Hibbert's (ankle) injury and provided 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 FT), 10 rebounds, and three blocks in 26 minutes in the loss to the Suns on Saturday.

Mahinmi has been fairly productive in limited minutes. He could be a nice source of boards if Hibbert's injury causes him to miss games.

Mahinmi came off the bench Friday to contribute seven points (3-3 FG, 1-4 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, and one block in 23 minutes against the Nuggets.

This was easily the best game of the season for Mahinmi. With that in mind, Friday's performance is on the high end for what to expect from the 28-year-old on any given night.
