Jodie Meeks SG LAL 2 Days
Jodie Meeks hit just 3-of-11 shots and no 3-pointers for seven points in Thursday's brutal loss to the Clippers.
Meeks had been playing very well but this game was over before most of the fans were even in their seats. Meeks appears to be locked and loaded until further notice, so just hang in there with him as the Lakers lick their wounds.

Jodie Meeks played 31 minutes against the Pelicans on Tuesday night with 17 points, three steals and two 3-pointers.
He has 2.0 triples per game in his last eight games since returning from an ankle injury while shooting 53.3 percent from the field and stealing 1.1 per game in his previous seven games. Meeks is a must-own player in standard-style formats.

Jodie Meeks hit all eight of his field goal attempts (including three treys) for 22 points and four assists over 33 minutes on Friday against the Kings.
Meeks was actually benched for a bit because Jordan Farmar was in the midst of an 8-of-10 run from beyond the arc. That should tell you everything you need to know about the track meet at Staples tonight.

Jodie Meeks scored 19 points vs. the Nets on Sunday with two boards, two assists, one block, two steals and two 3-pointers vs. the Nets.
He was playing close to 40 minutes per game before his ankle sprain earlier this month, but the Lakers actually have some shred of depth in their backcourt right now and that won't be necessary. Meeks is still too valuable for his 3-point range to allow spacing to Mike D'Antoni's offense, so he's a must-own player in all leagues for points, treys and steals.

Jodie Meeks returned from his ankle sprain on Wednesday with 19 points, one rebound, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
He was on cruise control before going down on Feb. 4, ranking ninth in the NBA for minutes per game in January while averaging 18.9 points, 2.7 assists, 1.9 steals and 2.6 triples on 46.1 percent from the field and 88.2 percent from the line. Meeks was putting up early-round value during that span and the trade of Steve Blake makes him a must-add, must-start player in even the shallowest formats.

Jodie Meeks (ankle) will play vs. the Jazz on Wednesday.
Meeks made it through Tuesday's practice without any problems and his return is great news with Kobe Bryant out, Jordan Farmar and Pau Gasol doubtful, and Jordan Farmar questionable. With season averages of 14.4 points, 2.2 triples and 1.4 steals per game, Meeks belongs in active lineups.

Jodie Meeks (ankle) is expected to return to action next week.
The cavalry is coming for the Lakers, but it won't be in time for Tuesday's game against the Jazz or Thursday's game against the Thunder. Meeks, Jordan Farmar, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Xavier Henry all hope to be back shortly after the All-Star break. Meeks is considered the closest, as he is merely dealing with a simple right ankle sprain.

Jodie Meeks (ankle) will be re-evaluated after the All-Star break.
That rules him out for this week, meaning he will miss at least five games due to his sprained ankle. Meeks was playing extremely well before the injury, averaging 18.9 points, 2.7 assists, 1.9 steals and 2.6 triples on 46.1 percent from the field in 38.1 minutes. He should be stashed in all leagues.

Mike D'Antoni said on Saturday that he expects Jodie Meeks (ankle) to be sidelined through the All-Star break.
That would mean three more DNPs for Meeks as the Lakers play on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday before heading into the break. His absence means more playing time for Steve Blake, Steve Nash and Kendall Marshall, but he should be ready to go for L.A.'s first post-break game on Feb. 19.
