WASHINGTON (AP) - 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.
