Brooks: No timetable for re­turn of in­jured Mahinmi

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

The end of this week marks one month since Ian Mahinmi, the Wash­ing­ton Wizards’ 6-foot-11 cen­ter, un­der­went surgery to re­pair a par­tially torn me­dial menis­cus in his left knee. At the time of the in­jury, Wash­ing­ton an­nounced that he would miss at least four to six weeks. Though Mahinmi can go through solo work­outs, coach Scott Brooks in­di­cated that there is no set date for his re­turn. Mahinmi is “still do­ing the re­hab ev­ery day. He’s def­i­nitely on the court. Don’t know when he’s go­ing to be back,” Brooks said. Mahinmi has not par­tic­i­pated in prac­tice with team­mates, which would be the last step before re­join­ing the lineup. But even af­ter reach­ing that goal, Mahinmi will have more hur­dles to clear. Mahinmi, who was signed to pro­vide front­court depth, has not ap­peared in a game since Oct. 13. Before the in­jury, he was lim­ited through por­tions of the team’s train­ing camp. In July, the Wizards signed Mahinmi to a four-year, $64 mil­lion con­tract. In his ab­sence, the team has used Ja­son Smith as the backup cen­ter. — Mary­land will face North­west­ern and coach Pat Fitzger­ald for the first time in pro­gram his­tory next sea­son. The Terps will host the Wild­cats on the night of Oct. 13, a Fri­day. Wright) also made the sec­ond team.
