Jodie Meeks SG LAL 8 Days

Jodie Meeks, an impending free agent, expressed his desire to return to the Lakers next season.

"When I signed here two years ago, I told my family that I would love to be here the rest of my career," Meeks said. Meeks has been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise horrendous season for the Lakers, as he's averaged 15.6 points, 1.4 steals, and 2.1 three-pointers, all career highs. While these averages are impressive, it should be noted that the Lakers have played severely undermanned for much of the season, giving Jodie an opportunity to be a first or second option on offense (an opportunity that would not be there with a healthy Kobe). It's unclear exactly who will be brought back next season, but Jodie has certainly made his case as a guy who can be a more than effective role player.

Jodie Meeks started and hit 12-of-21 shots and two 3-pointers for 30 points, four rebounds, six assists and a steal in Tuesday's loss to Houston.

He should finish the season strong and played very well tonight, despite the return of Jordan Farmar and a big game from Nick Young (32 points).

Jodie Meeks made just 2-of-7 from the field against the Blazers on Tuesday for four points with two boards, two assists and one turnover in 27 minutes.

It's his lowest scoring output in 2014 and just his second single-digit game this calendar year as well. Meeks has been terrific as one of the most improved players in the NBA, so his owners obviously need to give him a pass here.

Jodie Meeks shot 4-of-10 from the field for 10 points vs. the Bucks on Wednesday with three boards, four assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

When taking into account Pau Gasol is out due to verigo, Meeks is easily the most reliable Laker right now. His numbers since the break have been phenomenal, averaging 17.9 points, 1.9 assists, 1.9 steals and 2.1 triples on 46.7 percent from the field and 87.5 percent from the line. He's putting up top-30 value in that span and shows no signs of slowing down.

Jodie Meeks took a backseat offensively vs. Orlando, scoring 13 points with two 3-pointers in 40 minutes, but he also set a career-high with six steals.

The five-year veteran is averaging a career-high 1.4 steals per game this year, but he has 10 in the past two games alone. His sudden thievery is great news for fantasy owners fighting to make up ground in roto leagues or win a category in head-to-head playoffs, and L.A.'s upcoming four-game week should smooth out any wrinkles in Meeks' production.

Jodie Meeks scored 21 points vs. the Wizards on Friday with two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

Even with the returns of Nick Young and Steve Nash, Meeks' minutes held up. Over his last five, he's averaged 21.6 points, 2.2 boards, 2.4 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.6 triples while taking 15.4 shots per game, which would make him a must-start player in standard leagues. The Kentucky product might be the most reliable perimeter Laker for the rest of the season.

Jodie Meeks shot 6-of-15 from the field for 19 points with three boards, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He was the star of the show on Sunday's national-TV game with 42 and played well tonight . His career-high 39.9 percent from three has been a big part of his success, but he's been much better in the paint this season and it's resulted in a fantastic 46.3 percent from the field. Meeks is going to sustain must-start value the rest of the way even when Nick Young (knee) comes back.

Jodie Meeks could not be stopped on Sunday during a shocking 114-110 win over the Thunder, scoring a career-high 42 points with two boards, four assists and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He shot 11-of-18 from the field and made all 14 free throws in the win. Meeks became the first player since Kevin Martin in 2011 to score at least 42 points on 18 or less shots from the field and he was also the last non-Kobe Bryant Laker to score 40 since Andrew Bynum did it in 2009. He's having a major breakout season and will be a fixture in the Lakers rotation for his 3-point range.

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.
