Jodie Meeks (right thumb) will not need surgery and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.
He suffered two sprained ligaments from the thumb dislocation on Wednesday night. The team added the return date will depend on the response to the treatment. Meeks has filled in for the injured Evan Fournier (heel, foot), so the Magic may have to turn to Mario Hezonja and C.J. Watson. Hezonja is only worth a look in deep leagues for now. Meeks' fantasy owners should probably cut him. Jan 19 - 6:33 PM

Jodie Meeks suffered a dislocated right thumb on Wednesday and will not return.

The good news is X-rays were negative, so he didn't break anything. That said, he will need an MRI on Thursday to check for ligament damage. Meeks finished with five points, four rebounds, two steals and two turnovers in 16 minutes. Maybe, just maybe coach Frank Vogel will play Mario Hezonja, who is only worth a speculative add in very deep leagues for now. C.J. Watson should also get more minutes.
Jan 18 - 9:48 PM

Jodie Meeks scored 11 points with four rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointers and three turnovers in 34 minutes on Monday vs. Denver.

Meeks once again start in place of the injured Evan Fournier (foot). Meeks' ceiling isn't very high, but he is consistent when starting. He has now scored in double-figures in four straight games. With Fournier potentially out the rest of the week, Meeks should continue to start for the foreseeable future, which makes Meeks a decent short-term add in deep leagues.
Jan 16 - 9:03 PM

Jodie Meeks scored 12 points with six assists, three rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes on Saturday against the Jazz.

He got the start in place of the injured Evan Fournier (foot) and scored in double-figures for the third consecutive game -- he was also used at small forward in this one. Fournier could miss at least the next two games, which would move Meeks into the starting lineup and give him a boost. He can be added in 14-team leagues as long as Fournier is sidelined.
Jan 14 - 11:51 PM

Jodie Meeks will start for Evan Fournier (foot) against the Jazz on Saturday.

He's basically been the understudy with Fournier has been out. In those six starts, he averaged 12.5 points, 2.7 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.3 treys. He is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues until Fournier gets the all clear.
Jan 14 - 7:39 PM

Jodie Meeks led Orlando's second unit on Wednesday with 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting, adding five rebounds, two assists and a season-high five steals in 28 minutes.

Two of Meeks' makes came from downtown and he didn't commit any turnovers, solidifying a very nice game for the few owners who started him tonight. He was coming off two invisible performances, and is marginalized most nights when Evan Fournier is healthy, so most owners should leave him drifting on the wire.
Jan 12 - 2:23 AM

Jodie Meeks moved back to the bench on Friday with no points in 14 minutes.

He will lose almost all of his value with Evan Fournier healthy now. Meeks can be dropped almost everywhere, but he did prove he can have value while Fournier is out.
Jan 6 - 10:05 PM

Evan Fournier (heel) will return to Orlando's starting lineup, bumping Jodie Meeks back to the bench.

Meeks started each of the Magic's last six games. He averaged 12.5 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.3 3-pointers over the six-game stretch. However, Meeks is averaging just 7.5 points and 1.7 rebounds in 17.4 minutes as a reserve this season. With Fournier back in the starting lineup, Meeks can be sent back to the waiver wire in most standard leagues.
Jan 6 - 5:33 PM

Jodie Meeks started again on Wednesday and posted eight points, two rebounds, two steals and one assist in 24 minutes vs. the Hawks.

Meeks drained six 3-pointers in Orlando's previous game, a victory, and coach Frank Vogel may not have wanted to mess with the starting unit's chemistry despite the return of Evan Fournier (heel). It's hard to imagine Meeks holding 12-team value (or the starting job) while Fournier is active, but owners in need of 3-pointers and steals may want to wait a few games to see what happens.
Jan 4 - 10:13 PM

Jodie Meeks will remain in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Hawks, with Evan Fournier (heel) coming off the bench.

Meeks is coming off a game in which he drilled six 3-pointers, and in general, he's played well as a starter, so it'll be interesting to see how long he can fend off Fournier for the starting two-spot. Elfrid Payton, Aaron Gordon, Serge Ibaka and Bismack Biyombo will join Meeks in the starting five for tonight's game.

Jodie Meeks scored 23 points and hit six triples on Monday vs. the Knicks.

The points and triples were both season highs, but you probably already knew that. Meeks shot 7-of-9 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line with two rebounds, two assists and a block, and he played 32 minutes with Evan Fournier (heel) out for the fifth straight game. Fournier was a game-time call before he was ultimately ruled out Monday, so he should have a decent chance of returning on Wednesday vs. Atlanta. Meeks is just a short-term flier.
Jan 2 - 11:59 PM

Jodie Meeks had 11 points, three 3-pointers, three rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Pacers.

Evan Fournier (heel) missed his fourth straight game tonight but he's day-to-day and could return vs. New York on Monday. Meeks looked good even when coming off the bench this season, so owners should keep him in mind as a cheap source of 3-pointers and steals, if nothing else.
Jan 1 - 9:13 PM

Jodie Meeks scored 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting with one rebound, one assist, two steals and one triple in 22 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday.

It sounds like Evan Fournier (heel) is expected back on Sunday vs. the Pacers, so Meeks can be dropped to the wire in most leagues as soon as we get confirmation on Fournier's status.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 09:48:00 PM

Jodie Meeks hit 5-of-8 shots and three 3-pointers in Monday's start, finishing with 13 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals.

He got the nod in front of Evan Fournier, who was out with a shin injury. Fournier's injury doesn't sound too serious, so Meeks can be ignored as long as we hear that Fournier is getting close to a return from his two-game absence.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 09:52:00 PM

Jodie Meeks will start against the Grizzlies on Monday.

This is his second straight start in place of the injured Evan Fournier (shin). Meeks scored nine points with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and one trey in 27 minutes in his previous start, but he's not a great add because Fournier is only day-to-day.
