According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski‏, Jodie Meeks has been suspended for 25 games for violating NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug program.
Woj is reporting that Meeks tested positive for banned compounds Ipamorelin and Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2. Meeks won't be able to play for the Wizards in the playoffs, and his suspension will carry into the 2018-19 NBA regular season. The Wiz may be quite shorthanded on Saturday, as both Otto Porter (mild right calf strain) and Mike Scott (concussion) are listed as questionable for Game 1 vs. Toronto. Tomas Satoransky and Tim Frazier will see an uptick in minutes off the bench with Meeks sidelined. Apr 13 - 1:13 PM

Date:

Jodie Meeks did not score in 10 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.

He's basically Bradley Beal's backup for when he needs a rest. Related: Beal played 40 minutes tonight.
Mar 23 - 9:45 PM

Jodie Meeks (illness) will return on Friday against the Nuggets.

The Wizards had to roll with some two-PG lineups on Wednesday, but that may not happen tonight. Meeks isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues.
Mar 23 - 5:28 PM

Jodie Meeks (illness) is out for Wednesday night against the Spurs.

The Wizards will be somewhat thin the backcourt, so they could roll with some two-PG combos or run Kelly Oubre as a shooting guard. Either way, there's not much fantasy impact here.
Mar 21 - 8:09 PM

Jodie Meeks scored 23 points with four rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Heat on Saturday.

This was just his second game over 20 points on the season, and Meeks combined to score 19 points in his previous four games this month. This was all about garbage time, so ignore this one.
Mar 10 - 9:57 PM

Jodie Meeks logged 26 minutes off the bench in Sunday's game against the Pacers, but he was limited to just seven points.

Meeks was jacking up plenty of shots, but he was just 1-of-6 from the field, including 1-of-5 from behind the 3-point line. He made up for it with a 4-of-4 night from the free-throw line, but he offered just one rebound and no other statistics. He'll see plenty of minutes as long as Kelly Oubre (foot) needs to recuperate.
Mar 4 - 10:27 PM

Jodie Meeks scored a season-high 21 points vs. Philly on Wednesday, hitting 5-of-11 FGs and 8-of-9 FTs with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

It's the fourth time all season that Meeks has logged more than 20 minutes in a game, and the playing time was heavily influenced by the score -- Washington trailed by 18 points at halftime and leaned on their bench in the second half. He's been hot over his past two games, but remains little more than a specialist for 3-pointers and strong FT percentage.

Jodie Meeks scored six points in 18 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

He was also out there for five minutes in no-PG lineup combos, mostly with Brad Beal. Meeks could have some low-end value in deep leagues as a triples specialist.
Sat, Nov 25, 2017 09:41:00 PM

Jodie Meeks posted 10 points with three rebounds, an assist and a steal in 27 minutes off the bench Friday at Golden State.

Meeks connected for a pair of 3-pointers, but he also finished with a dismal minus-20 outing, as he was on the floor longer than expected with Bradley Beal ejected for a dust-up with Draymond Green earlier in the game. The team did all right without Beal for a while, but then they folded in the final quarter getting outscored 33-20. He'll be back to a smaller role Sunday in Sacramento and remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Sat, Oct 28, 2017 01:48:00 AM

Jodie Meeks went 3-of-7 from the field and 4-of-4 from the stripe during Sunday's preseason win over Cleveland, on his way to 13 points and three 3-pointers.

Meeks also chipped in four boards an assist and a steal, and he's been playing well through the preseason with averages of 13.3 points, 3.0 triples and 1.0 steal in 14.5 minutes per contest. Meeks figures to have a sixth man type role in Washington this season, but Scott Brooks will likely try and keep his minutes in the low-20s given his injury history, which won't be enough floor time for him to make a difference in standard fantasy leagues.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 05:49:00 PM

Jodie Meeks hit the ground running in his Wizards preseason debut vs. the Guangzhou Long-Lions, notching 19 points in 16 minutes with four triples and two steals.

It's nice to see Meeks find some success after spending so much time on the sidelines over the past few seasons. Meeks was one of the first players off the bench along with Kelly Oubre and could be looking at minutes in the high teens to lower 20s when the games actually matter. He's unlikely to have any real fantasy value while the Wizards are healthy, though.
Mon, Oct 2, 2017 09:42:00 PM

After appearing in an average of 33 games over the past few seasons due to foot, back and thumb injuries, Jodie Meeks said he finally feels healthy.

"I would say I'm 100 percent now. Thank the good Lord that I'm past that," Meeks said. "It's summer time, so my body feels great. I came back from my thumb at the end of the season. I played okay and finished out the season healthy. This summer I got some rest. Now I'm working out again and I feel fine." The Wizards lost Bojan Bogdanovic to the Pacers, so Meeks will be relied on to add a scoring punch to Washington's bench. As long as Bradley Beal is healthy, Meeks won't have much fantasy value.
Mon, Jul 17, 2017 10:16:00 AM

Jodie Meeks believes that he can be a "perfect fit" in Scott Brooks' system.

"Before I signed I asked what my role would be and it's pretty much what I've been doing my whole career. Come off the bench, obviously behind [Bradley Beal]," Meeks said. "I just wanted to find the best situation for myself with what I bring to the table shooting-wise and playing with a lot of energy. I wanted a perfect fit for both sides and I think I did that." Meeks has seriously struggled to stay healthy over the years, so Brooks may want to limit his playing time to the teens.
Sun, Jul 16, 2017 03:18:00 PM

Jodie Meeks has agreed to a two-year, $7 million deal with the Wizards.

Injuries have really slowed Meeks down over the past couple years, but he's a career 37.6 percent 3-point shooter and immediately improves the second unit in Washington which was their biggest weakness last season. Meeks put up 9.1 points per game with the Magic in 2016-17 with 2.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.6 treys in 20.5 minutes per game, but his role will probably be reduced on his new team.
Sun, Jul 2, 2017 12:39:00 PM

Jodie Meeks scored eight points with three rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers against the Pacers on Saturday.

Evan Fournier's wrist looked fine, so Meeks may not be starting again. There's a chance he gets bumped from the rotation to look at some of the younger guys.
