Description: Pistons guard Jodie Meeks is no longer a late-round fantasy flier with his back injury.
Insight: Meeks is expected to miss at least two months, which sidelines him until basically Christmas. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will reap the benefits from Meeks' injury, and fantasy owners should target Caldwell-Pope in the late rounds of standard league drafts.
 
10/14/2014 1:59:00 PM
Description: Pistons guard/forward Jodie Meeks will miss at least a couple months with a stress reaction in his lower back.
Insight: With Meeks sidelined, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope looks poised to take away Meeks' starting role. Caldwell-Pope has looked great through the preseason.
 
10/11/2014 1:47:00 PM
Description: Pistons guard/forward Jodie Meeks missed practice on Saturday due to back spasms.
Insight: If Meeks continues to miss time, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope looks poised to take away Meeks' starting role. Caldwell-Pope has looked great through the preseason. Both Meeks and Caldwell-Pope are worth a late round pick in fantasy drafts.
 
7/1/2014 9:36:00 PM
Description: The Pistons have signed swingman Jodie Meeks to a three-year, $19 million contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Meeks' fantasy value isn't going to be any higher than it was last season, when he averaged 33.2 minutes per game for a depleted Lakers club and recorded 15.7 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 2.1 3pg and 1.4 spg. Rodney Stuckey isn't expected to re-sign with Detroit, but the Pistons still have second-year guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Kyle Singler as well as several high-usage offensive players in Brandon Jennings, Josh Smith and Greg Monroe.

Description: Lakers guard Jodie Meeks came out of nowhere to score 42 points Sunday in an upset win over OKC.
Insight: Meeks shot the lights out, connecting on 11 of his 18 field goal attempts including 6-of-11 from long range. He also helped defensively by providing four steals. The 42 points represents a new career-high for the five-year veteran.

Insight: A badly sprained ankle has kept Meeks out since February 4th. Steve Blake and Wesley Johnson will probably see a few less minutes in the likely event that Meeks plays on Wednesday.

Description: The X-rays on Lakers guard Jodie Meeks' right ankle came back negative, but he will miss at least the next two games, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

Insight: Meeks is dealing with a minor foot injury. He has been good for 18.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.6 threes and 1.9 steals in his last 14 games and should be owned in all leagues.

Description: An MRI on Jodie Meeks' injured foot came back negative. He'll be ready to play Tuesday when the Lakers host Indiana. SOURCE: Ramona Shelburne, ESPN Los Angeles
Insight: Meeks looked fine in Sunday's loss to the Knicks (24 points in 43 minutes) so we're guessing the MRI was merely a precaution. He'll grab another start at shooting guard Tuesday against the Eastern Conference-leading Pacers.

He's been Mamba-like in the month of January with averages of 20.5 ppg, 3.3 rpg and 3.2 apg. Meeks has made just under 44 percent of his field goals during that stretch.

Insight: Meeks has a torn ligament in his ankle and he probably won't play another game this season. The Lakers will turn to the unproven Andrew Goudelock in Game 4. Get your broom ready, there's about to be a sweep.
 
4/25/2013 4:14:00 PM

Insight: Meeks will have an MRI Thursday, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com. The Lakers are down 2-0 to the Spurs and may have to play Game 3 without Meeks, Steve Nash and Steve Blake. Andrew Goudelock and Darius Morris could be headed for big minutes.

Description: Lakers guard Jodie Meeks is probable for Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals Wednesday against San Antonio while dealing with a sprained left ankle.

12/23/2012 10:13:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Jodie Meeks has scored in double figures in five straight games and seven of his last eight.
Insight: Meeks has provided the Lakers with some semblance of a bench threat (Metta World Peace has also moved to the bench the last two games) but any hope for sustained fantasy success likely slipped away when Steve Nash returned Saturday.
