Jodie Meeks SG LAL 19 Days
Jodie Meeks bounced back from a three-point outing on Wednesday to score 25 points in the Lakers' 89-86 loss to the Grizzlies, hitting 10-of-16 shots (including five threes) with three rebounds and a steal in 38 minutes.
Mike D'Antoni loves him and while that doesn't guarantee Meeks unfettered play, it gives him the benefit of the doubt. Unless he goes on a prolonged cold streak, owners should ride out the waves until Kobe Bryant returns and all bets are off.

Jodie Meeks started for the Lakers at shooting guard and hit 5-of-7 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, three rebounds and a steal on Tuesday.
With Steve Nash out for the foreseeable future, Meeks, Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar, Nick Young and Xavier Henry are all going to see a bigger role for the Lakers. All of them put up decent numbers tonight, much of it coming in garbage time, but Meeks looks like a sneaky source of threes until further notice. Just expect some inconsistency along the way, especially as Mike D'Antoni continues to tinker with his lineup from night to night.

Jodie Meeks scored 11 points in a start at shooting guard on Friday, hitting 4-of-10 shots (including two threes) with three rebounds and one steal in 42 minutes.
The minutes are a great sign but the mediocre production and wobbly rotation make him a speculative short-term add at best, even if he is producing at a late-round value on the year so far. His cohorts were all over the board, as expected, with Nick Young scoring 13 points with one trey in 28 minutes, Wes Johnson scoring three points with five rebounds, three assists and a trey in 21 minutes, and Xavier Henry disappearing for six points in 16 minutes. On the whole this is a group to avoid.

Jodie Meeks will start at shooting guard against the Pelicans on Friday.
He's coming off an 18-point, five-triple game against the Rockets on Thursday, so coach Mike D'Antoni wants to keep the hot hand going. Meeks is a good bet for a couple triples and could score in the teens again.

Jodie Meeks made five 3-pointers on his way to 18 points, three boards, one assist and one turnover on 6-of-9 shooting at Houston on Thursday
Coach Mike D'Antoni has called upon Meeks here and there during his tenure, and he called his number tonight. It's hard to get too attached to the idea of picking up Meeks since his playing time will undoubtedly take a hit upon Kobe Bryant's return.

Jodie Meeks played 26 minutes off the bench on Tuesday during the Lakers' win over the Clippers with a line of 13 points, three boards, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.
He shot 4-of-8 from the field and took six attempts from downtown. If Meeks gets six shots per night from that range, he could be a 3-point specialist in deeper leagues.

Jodie Meeks (ankle) participated in the Lakers' team workouts on Tuesday.
The partially torn ligaments in Meeks' ankle have "healed nicely" and he was "moving well," according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com. He'll be ready for opening night and could begin the season with a sizable role if Kobe Bryant is still sidelined by his Achilles injury.
