Jodie Meeks (right foot) has shed his walking boot and remains on track to be ready by the end of November.
Meeks is making solid progress, but he'll have a very limited role this season playing behind Evan Fournier and Mario Hezonja. In other words, he shouldn't be drafted anywhere. Oct 13 - 3:00 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) is on track to return to the court in November.

He had surgery to stabilize the fifth metatarsal in his right foot in mid-July, but a team official told the Orlando Sentinel that he could play as soon as November. His exact return date will hinge on how well he continues to progress, but it's worth noting that Meeks will not be able to participate fully when training camp starts on September 27. When he does return he will have a limited role off the bench behind Evan Fournier and Mario Hezonja, so he's not worth targeting in fantasy this season.

Jodie Meeks (foot) underwent a procedure to repair his further stabilize the fifth metatarsal in his right foot on Tuesday.

Meeks will be out indefinitely and his return date will depend on how his foot responds to rehab. The 28-year-old still has a chance to return during 2016-17 season, but he won't have much fantasy value when healthy. Any absence will present an opportunity for Mario Hezonja to earn more minutes for himself.

Jodie Meeks said the Jones fracture that he suffered back in October has fully healed.

He did make a few appearances for the Pistons towards the end of the season, but he should be ready for a larger role in Orlando with a full offseason under his belt. Evan Fournier should get the bulk of the minutes at the two and Mario Hezonja will obviously be in the mix, so Meeks won't be worth drafting in any format.
Jul 2 - 10:37 AM

The Magic announced they acquired Jodie Meeks in exchange for a future conditional second-round pick.

The Magic lost Victor Oladipo in the Serge Ibaka trade, so there should be some minutes available for Meeks. Although, he'll almost certainly come off the bench behind Evan Fournier, assuming the Magic can bring the restricted free agent back. Hopefully, he doesn't take minutes away from Mario Hezonja.

The Pistons are reportedly nearing a deal that will send Jodie Meeks to the Magic for a 2019 future second-round pick.

This is just a salary dump for the Pistons with only a conditional second-round pick coming back to Detroit, but Meeks could be looking at some quality minutes with the Magic. A fractured foot has kept Meeks on the sidelines for the better part of the past two seasons, but he's finally healthy again, and at 28 years old he should still have something left in the tank. If Orlando doesn't bring in another shooting guard via free agency, Meeks could make for an intriguing late-round gamble on draft day.
Jun 29 - 1:52 PM

The Pistons will continue to shop Jodie Meeks.

This is fairly obvious. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has really panned out for the Pistons and gets serious minutes. Meeks' contract expires after the 2016-17 season.
Jun 24 - 2:17 PM

Jodie Meeks got his first action since October on Wednesday, posting 20 points (6-of-15 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with four 3-pointers, three rebounds and three assists in 27 minutes vs. the Cavaliers.

Meeks' season was ruined by foot surgery and his conditioning isn't up to snuff, but he earned a spot in the rotation tonight because Detroit was resting players in a meaningless game. Despite tonight's impressive performance, he'll likely resume racking up DNPs in the first round of the playoffs.
Apr 13 - 11:39 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) is available to play in Wednesday's season finale.

This news comes from Meeks himself and it seems unlikely that he'll actually crack the rotation, as Stan Van Gundy has repeatedly questioned Meeks' conditioning while praising guys like Reggie Bullock and Stanley Johnson.
Apr 13 - 7:06 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) is not expected to play again this season.

Stan Van Gundy doesn't believe there is enough time for Meeks to get into game-ready shape, but this really doesn't have any fantasy impact since the Pistons have played the large majority of the season without him.

Jodie Meeks is inactive for Wednesday.

He took a screen in practice and is not 100 percent. Meeks may not be in the rotation upon his return.
Mar 16 - 5:58 PM

Jodie Meeks is not expected to be in the rotation for the rest of the regular season.

After missing most of the regular season with a serious foot injury, Meeks isn't going to suddenly become a fantasy asset out of nowhere. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 14 - 1:20 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) is active for Saturday's game against the 76ers.

It's unclear how much he'll play, but he'll certainly be limited. Meeks has been out since the second game of the season. It shouldn't affect Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
Mar 12 - 5:39 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) is probable for Saturday's game vs. the 76ers.

It would be a good game for the Pistons to ease him back into action, but it's not a guarantee that he will see consistent minutes moving forward while Detroit is close to full strength. The sharpshooter can be left on the wire in most leagues until further notice.
