Mahinmi Provides Underrated Presence at Both Ends for Pacers

While Mahinmi isn't one of the Pacers' key players, they're a better team when he's healthy and available.

His absence has provided a silver lining, as it has allowed Myles Turner to see more time on the court, but Mahinmi's presence in the paint makes the team better on the offensive and defensive ends. 

Mahinmi is averaging 8.5 points and 7.1 rebounds per game, and his one block per game provides value on the defensive end as well.
