Ian Mahinmi C IND 17 Days

Mahinmi injured his shoulder and won't be able to play for Team France in the FIBA World Cup, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Early reports suggest that Mahinmi may be out for the next 2-3 months with a dislocated shoulder. While that's not official, it's concerning that he might not be able to suit up for the Pacers at the start of the season. The Frenchman will likely backup Roy Hibbert this season, but if he's unable to go, Luis Scola may see significant time off the bench in the frontcourt.

Ian Mahinmi has been added to Team France's FIBA World Cup of Basketball roster.

With Alexis Ajinca and Kevin Seraphin both unavailable for the World Cup, Mahinmi will serve as Les Bleu's best option up front for August's World Cup in Spain. While Mahinmi will get plenty of run for France in the World Cup, the 27-year-old doesn't hold much fantasy value heading into the 2014-15 season as he won't see much more playing time than the 12.7 minutes he averaged in 2013-14.

Ian Mahinmi will rest on Wednesday night vs. the Magic.

He is healthy and did not aggravate his hip injury from March. Mahinmi sitting out means Lavoy Allen will get in the rotation tonight, but he's not much of a fantasy option.

Ian Mahinmi picked up some extra playing time on Sunday vs. the Thunder, logging 21 minutes for 11 points, five boards, one assist and one block.

Roy Hibbert couldn't make his way up and down the floor and coach Frank Vogel decided to go with Mahinmi to help the flow of the game. Mahinmi might get another game with decent minutes, but his low usage rate doesn't make him a fantasy target.

Ian Mahinmi will start at center against the Bucks on Wednesday.

The entire starting five is sitting tonight and the Pacers will likely back up Mahinmi with Lavoy Allen. Mahinmi's offensive game isn't exactly his strong suit, so he's unlikely to be involved the offense. In fact, even with the starters in the bench, Mahinmi's usage rate is very small at just 12.2 in his 128 minutes. He's not a fantasy option unless you're in dire straits for boards and blocks.

Ian Mahinmi returned to action on Monday March 17.

Ian Mahinmi (hip) will be available Friday but is not expected to be part of the rotation.

There's no reason for Mahinmi to risk an aggravation as the Pacers take on the D-League team known as the Sixers. Lavoy Allen will back up Roy Hibbert.

Ian Mahinmi (hip) is listed as a game-time decision for Friday's game against Philadelphia.

With Andrew Bynum ruled out for Friday, Mahinmi has an opening to pick up some minutes against the Sixers if he is able to play, but Bynum will play Saturday against the Pistons so this could get interesting if Mahinmi is healthy for this weekend. Mahinmi could be in line for 15 minutes of action on Friday if he's able to suit up, but both he and Bynum will eat into each other's value while healthy so fantasy owners in standard leagues should be looking elsewhere.

Ian Mahinmi (ribs) did not practice with the team on Wednesday.

He's day-to-day and the Pacers have brought along Andrew Bynum a little quicker than expected because of it. Mahinmi hasn't really played poorly and has been a solid backup to Roy Hibbert, but he might lose minutes should Andrew Bynum get better.

Ian Mahinmi (bruised left hip) is listed as day-to-day by the team.

His minutes have dropped quite a bit lately and played just 11 on Sunday. Mahinmi may have suffered the injury in that game against the Mavs and the severity is not known. He is questionable for Tuesday vs. the Celtics.
