Jodie Meeks scored a season-high 18 points in just 16 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Magic.
Meeks is cut in the same mold as the Heat's Wayne Ellington. Both can get hot in a hurry, both are sort of hot right now, and both are pretty untrustworthy in fantasy. Meeks has scored 18, 7 and 10 points in his three games this season since returning from foot surgery, and while he's managed to slow Evan Fournier down for a minute, we don't see it lasting. And the fact he hit 5-of-7 shots and four 3-pointers in just 16 minutes tonight has fluke written all over it. Just keep an eye on him and hope that he doesn't do to Fournier what Bismack Biyombo, Jeff Green and D.J. Augustin have done to Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon and Elfrid Payton, as Orlando is now known as 'Timeshare Central' in fantasyland. Dec 7 - 2:12 AM

In his second game back from foot surgery, Jodie Meeks posted seven points, two assists, one rebound and one steal in 16 minutes.

The Magic will continue to limit Meeks' activity as a precaution and he's not worth standard-league attention until the playing time increases. It looks like he will carve out a reliable spot in the rotation, however, especially since Mario Hezonja is in the doghouse. Once he's at full strength, Meeks will be worth a glance as a cheap source of 3-pointers and steals.

Frank Vogel said that Jodie Meeks "probably will not play heavy minutes" Sunday vs. the Pistons.

Meeks made his season debut on Friday night, logging 17 minutes off the bench on his way to 10 points, one board, three steals and two 3-pointers, and he'll likely be dealing with a similar workload tonight. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
Dec 4 - 4:48 PM

Jodie Meeks made his season debut against the 76ers on Friday with 10 points, one rebound, three steals and two 3-pointers in 17 minutes.

He played the entire fourth quarter with this one going into garbage time. That's a great sign for his health because coach Frank Vogel said he wasn't sure about Meeks' conditioning before the game started. He may earn more playing time in the second unit and would mesh nicely with Elfrid Payton. Meeks is only worth a look in super deep leagues.

Jodie Meeks (foot) will make his season debut aginst the Sixers on Friday.

Meeks has missed the first 19 games of the season due to a fractured right foot. Coach Frank Vogel said he envisions Meeks playing in four or five-minute bursts each half on Friday. Vogel also explained that Meeks is probably not in game shape yet, but the best way to acclimate him to playing again is to give him minutes. Even when fully healthy, Meeks will likely have a minimal role in Orlando. He is not worth adding at this point.
Dec 2 - 5:36 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) will not play against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

Meeks may still travel with the team for Friday's game against the 76ers, but he won't be in the lineup against Memphis on Thursday. Meeks will be a bench player for the Magic when healthy and isn't worth adding in any fantasy leagues.
Dec 1 - 1:36 PM

Frank Vogel is hopeful that Jodie Meeks (foot) can get back on the court sometime during Orlando's upcoming five-game road trip.

Meeks will have a limited role off the Orlando bench, so he's not worth owning anywhere.
Nov 28 - 2:25 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) returned to full-contact practice on Friday for the first time, coach Frank Vogel said.

Meeks is a still "a ways" from returning, with no known timetable. He should be left on waiver wires, as he will have a tough time securing consistent minutes even when he is 100% healthy.
Nov 18 - 12:57 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) has been doing non-contact work with his teammates in practices.

He is still recovering from his July foot surgery. Meeks has been doing some non-contact work in practice for most of this month, but he's still not close to a return. The Magic rotation is a complete mess with Mario Hezonja not getting minutes, so Meeks may not get minutes once he's ready.
Nov 17 - 2:16 PM

Jodie Meeks (right foot surgery) was spotted working on floaters, with changes of direction and light jumping after Wednesday's practice.

Meeks' right foot has been a major issue for him over the past few seasons, and he's more of a veteran presence in the Orlando locker room than a rotation player. He'll be brought along slowly and belongs on the waiver wire everywhere.
Nov 2 - 2:14 PM

Jodie Meeks (foot) hopes to be able to practice in "a few weeks."

He had surgery to stabilize the fifth metatarsal in his right foot in mid-July, but he's making excellent progress and could return to action towards the end of November. He's not guaranteed a role and the Magic will bring him along slowly, so it's safe to leave him on the wire.

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.
Sep 19 - 11:05 AM

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.
Jul 19 - 12:33 PM

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.
