Ian Mahinmi To Miss Six Additional Weeks

Ian Mahinmi will undergo platelet-rich plasma treatment on both of his knees and is expected to miss roughly six weeks more weeks of action, as J. Michael of Comcast Sportsnet relays via Twitter. The treatment will be conducted at the Andrews Institute for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in Pensacola, FL.

He underwent surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus in his left knee on October 14 and he was hoping to return later this month. However, during his rehabilitation, he sustained a bone bruise on his left knee and he experienced tendinitis in his right knee.

The Wizards signed Mahinmi to a four-year, $64MM deal during the offseason. He has only been able to play in one game for the team so far this season due to his knee injuries.
