In his second preseason appearance, Ian Mahinmi (shoulder) came off the bench for three points, four rebounds and one block vs. the Mavericks.
The Scoop:Roy Hibbert was given the night off, so Mahinmi found himself backing up temporary starting center Lavoy Allen (10 points, eight rebounds). His dislocated left shoulder seems to be fully healed, but he's still not on the fantasy radar in standard formats.
The Scoop:He missed the FIBA World Cup due to a shoulder injury from back in August. Mahinmi had a chance to miss opening night, but it sounds like he's all better. Fantasy owners can ignore him while Roy Hibbert is healthy.
The Scoop:He dislocated his shoulder in August but was able to practice during training camp, and his absence seems like a mere precaution. He's not a fantasy option while stuck behind Roy Hibbert in the rotation.
