Wizards center Ian Mahinmi to miss time with Achilles strain

WASHINGTON -- Washington Wizards backup center Ian Mahinmi will miss the start of the regular season because of a strained right Achilles tendon, joining the team's long list of injured players.

The Wizards said Thursday that Mahinmi "will be treated conservatively" and will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

Washington is currently holding training camp. Its first regular season game is Oct. 23 at Dallas.

Wizards point guard John Wall is expected to miss most, if not all, of the season because of a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Other injured Wizards include Isaiah Thomas, Troy Brown Jr. and CJ Miles.
