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

Date:

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.

Mar 21 - 1:57 PM

Jodie Meeks is inactive for Saturday.

He's not in the rotation right now. Meeks can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Mar 19 - 5:36 PM

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.
Mar 12 - 1:01 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) said that there's a "good possibility" that he'll be able to return to the court during Detroit's current road trip.

Meeks has been cleared to play and with four games remaining on Detroit's current road trip, Monday vs. Washington seems like a realistic return date for the six-year veteran. Meeks has been sidelined since October, so expect him to be brought along slowly in Detroit. He's not on the radar in standard leagues.
Mar 9 - 1:57 PM

Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy said Jodie Meeks (foot) is getting closer to a return.

Meeks was able to practice on Tuesday and SVG said he's "closer" and not necessarily "close." Despite Van Gundy's game of semantics, it sounds like Meeks should be back within the Pistons next few games and will help bolster their bench depth. Meeks won't see enough minutes to contribute in standard fantasy leagues, however, and is moreso a stash for owners in deeper leagues.
Mar 8 - 12:45 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) will not play against the Knicks on Saturday.

He should be back next week to help strengthen the second unit. Meeks can remain on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 5 - 6:57 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) is unlikely to play against the Knicks on Saturday.

He is getting close to a return and could be back next week. Meeks has lost a lot of ground to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, so he won't play much upon his return.
Mar 5 - 5:47 PM

Jodie Meeks (right foot) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Knicks.

He is going to be eased back into action and it's not a guarantee that he sees the floor if he's cleared to play. With Kentavious Caldwell-Pope healthy, there's no reason to add Meeks in most leagues.
Mar 5 - 12:19 PM

Jodie Meeks (right foot) has been cleared to play according to coach Stan Van Gundy.

Just because he has been cleared to play doesn't mean he will immediately see minutes, but this is good news for the Pistons considering Stanley Johnson (shoulder) will miss a couple more games. Meeks isn't worth owning in most fantasy leagues while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is healthy.
