The Wizards (29-20) have to determine if he’ll be able to contribute by Feb. 16. That’ll be the last chance to survey their options before playing again Feb. 24 – one day after the trade deadline. “The reaction to everything I’ve done is much better,” Mahinmi said of how his knees feel compared to earlier in the season after he came back for a procedure in October. “I felt like seeing Dr. (James) Andrews was great. It was obviously the right move. I feel like I’m fixed.”

Mahinmi, the 6-foot-11 center who underwent surgery to repair a partially torn medial meniscus on Oct. 14, has not appeared in a regular season game. After the latest step in his recovery, in which he fully participated in the light practice while wearing a compression sleeve over his left knee, he expects to return to the court by the end of November. “Obviously it’s not a live full-blown practice but it’s my first time being on the court with everybody. I went through every drill, no restriction,” Mahinmi said after the session. “That’s the goal, to come back before the end of the month, and everything depends on how my knee reacts going into a full-blown practice.”

Storyline: Oklahoma City Thunder Turmoil?
“For the talent that we have, obviously this is not where we want to be,” Thunder forward Paul George said. “But we’re going to remain optimistic, though, about the future and what we can do. Once we can find a way to really do it night in and night out, it’s no panic mode, but we have to start playing better. It’s getting to a point where we can’t allow ourselves to be at this point. We can say we’re going to figure it out, we can say all that. But at some point it’s gotta stop.”
