Stan Van Gundy was not optimistic about Jodie Meeks (fractured right foot) making a meaningful impact for the Pistons this season.
"We’re backing off until March 1; for practical matters, it’s really hard to see him being able to get back and make much of a contribution this year," Van Gundy said. "The first day he would be able to start ramping it up would be early March. He’d need a couple weeks to ramp it up and then you’re down to the last month of the season by the time he’s ready to go." Meeks fractured right foot has not healed properly, and there are no guarantees he makes it back to the court this season. Leave him on the wire. Feb 3 - 9:17 AM

After it was determined that Jodie Meeks' fractured right foot has not healed, Stan Van Gundy has decided to shut him down until March 1.

Meeks could very well miss the entire 2015-16 season, so there's currently zero incentive to own him in any format.

Jodie Meeks met with surgeon Martin O'Malley on Monday and was told his foot is not healed.

He has stopped his activity and will not practice. With Meeks out, it'll be interesting to see if the Pistons go with more Reggie Jackson and Brandon Jennings like they did on Saturday. Leave Meeks on the wire.
Feb 1 - 6:33 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) practices on Thursday, but didn't increase his workload, and it now seems unlikely he'll be able to return before the All-Star break.

Meeks is going to be brought along slowly in Detroit, and he'll be fighting for minutes with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Brandon Jennings. Until he's back on the court without a minutes restriction, Meeks belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
Jan 28 - 3:27 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) could begin going through limited work during Sunday's practice, and he's hopeful to get back on the court before the All-Star break.

Meeks will likely be brought along slowly in Detroit, and he'll be fighting for minutes with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Brandon Jennings upon his return, making him an unattractive stash in most formats.

Jodie Meeks (foot) is making good progress, but he made it clear that he won't rush his return.

"I have a good range of motion and no pain but I can't just go out there and break it again," Meeks said. "I'm basically just waiting for everything to heal. I know everybody saw Dez Bryant come back a little early and re-do it. So that's what I don't want. It's frustrating but I'm trying to get back." Meeks is targeting a return in February, but he will likely be returning to a limited role off the bench. Leave him on the wire.

Jodie Meeks (fractured right foot) is no longer walking around in a boot.

The shooting guard has been working out for several weeks, but there has been no indication that he will return before February. Additionally, the Pistons may consider sending him to the D-League when he is cleared to play to help get his legs under him. For now, Meeks isn't worth adding in almost any format.

Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy said Jodie Meeks (fractured right foot) could have a rehab stint in the D-League.

Meeks isn't expected to return until February, but Van Gundy said he could spend some time rehabbing in the D-League when he does. "We play so many games that practice time is limited, and practice time isn't that long," SVG said. "Your chance to go get 35 minutes a game, and really get your conditioning back, would be to do something like that." While Meeks can help fantasy owners in need of three-pointers upon his return, he can be left on waivers for now.

Jodie Meeks (fractured foot) said during Sunday's in-game interview that he will be re-evaluated on Thursday.

Meeks didn't offer a timetable and isn't likely to return until February at the earliest. His absence is part of the reason that Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has been playing 37.3 minutes per game.

Jodie Meeks had surgery on Thursday night to repair a non-displaced fracture of the 5th metatarsal in his right foot and will be sidelined for 12-16 weeks.

This is a massive blow for Meeks and for the Pistons, and this means that we may not see him back on the floor until February at the earliest. We wish Meeks a speedy recovery, while Reggie Bullock and Stanley Johnson will see a slight uptick in minutes off the bench for the foreseeable future.

Jodie Meeks (foot) is in New York to get a second opinion on his foot.

He is expected to miss 6-8 weeks, so we will let you know if anything changes. Meeks can be dropped everywhere, while Reggie Bullock and Stanley Johnson could see more minutes off the bench. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is already locked into heavy minutes.

Jodie Meeks suffered a Jones fracture to his right foot.

He is going to miss around 6-8 weeks and this is the same injury to Kevin Durant from last season. Reggie Bullock could be in the rotation now while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope should also step up even more. Meeks can be cut in all leagues.

Jodie Meeks (sore right foot) is getting an X-ray on Wednesday.

He had a sore right foot back in January 2014, but it's hard to relate these two issues. We'll be looking for an update in the next hour. If he's out Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will get more rung while hopefully Stanley Johnson plays some two, too.
Wed, Oct 28, 2015 08:40:00 PM

Jodie Meeks limped to the locker room in the second quarter on Wednesday.

He had team doctors with him and it's unclear how severe this injury is. He was able to get to the locker room under his own power. If he's out, that could be even more minutes for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and the Pistons could also play Stanley Johnson at the two.

Jodie Meeks took a backseat to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope on Tuesday and played just 11 minutes off the bench against the Hawks.

Meeks finished with just 2 points on 1-of-4 shooting with two boards. He was supposed to challenge KCP for the starting role this summer, but it's pretty clear that he lost the position battle after KCP scored 21 points in 37 minutes Tuesday. While his minutes will likely be higher on most nights, Meeks is only on the radar in deeper leagues.
