Meeks poured in 11 points (3-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and added two rebounds and three steals across 16 minutes in Wednesday's 102-99 overtime loss to the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

Meeks continues to serve as a solid source of scoring on the second unit for the Wizards, with Wednesday's effort representing his second double-digit scoring tally in the first four games. The veteran sharpshooter actually sports a subpar 36.0 percent success rate from the field, but he's drained 40.0 percent of his three-point attempts. Meeks doesn't offer much on the stat sheet beyond the scoring categories, but he seems locked in for a consistent role off the bench.

Meeks dropped 13 points (3-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 18 minutes in Sunday's 102-94 victory over the Cavaliers.

EDGE Analysis

While Meeks did not hit a shot inside the arc, he connected on 75 percent of his attempts from three in Sunday's exhibition game. Meeks has always been known predominantly for his long-range shooting, but it will be hard to carve out a role bigger than a sharpshooter off the bench in Washington's crowded backcourt.

Meeks has agreed to terms on a two-year, $7 million contract with the Wizards, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

After undergoing surgery to repair a sprained right thumb, Meeks ended up missing a fairly large chunk of the 2016-17 season and played just 36 games with the Magic. That translated to averages of 9.1 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.6 three-pointers across 20.5 minutes, while also tallying an impressive 40.9 percent clip from beyond the arc. With the Wizards in desperate need of some bench help, Meeks should jump into the rotation as a solid scorer and three-point shooter with the second unit, but the fact that he'll likely only be relied upon for reserve minutes could restrict his overall fantasy impact.

Meeks started at shooting guard and scored 20 points (7-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while grabbing two rebounds in 31 minutes during Thursday's 115-107 win over the Nets.

EDGE Analysis

Meeks made his 10th start of the season, filling in for Evan Fournier (wrist). While he didn't provide much outside of scoring, the 20 points and four threes both match the second highest totals he has reached in each category this season. If Fournier misses more time, Meeks becomes a reasonable addition in many settings, especially for use in DFS.

Meeks will start at shooting guard for Thursday's game against the Nets, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Evan Fournier was a surprise addition to the injury report with a wrist injury and will sit out Thursday's contest, which allows Meeks to enter the top unit in his place. In nine previous starts this season, Meeks has averaged 11.4 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists across 27.9 minutes, so expect a mild bump in production across the board.

Meeks supplied 13 points (4-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, one block and one steal across 18 minutes in a 117-116 loss to the Celtics on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Meeks' scoring total led the Magic bench, but that's not saying much, given the lack of the impact the second unit has provided throughout the season. Even as one of the more potent members of the bench, Meeks' scoring production is still far from reliable. In his preceding two games, he tallied a combined four points on 1-of-7 shooting from the field.

Meeks went for 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt) and two rebounds across 21 minutes during a 115-87 win over the Pistons on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Meeks' 15 points marked his highest scoring total since Jan. 2 as he found his stroke in his third game back from the thumb injury. He knocked in three triples for the second consecutive game as he got a little extra run in the blowout victory. Meeks could be a decent source of three-pointers as the regular season comes to a close.

Meeks scored nine points (1-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-9FT) to go along with four rebounds over 20 minutes in Monday's 112-109 win over the 76ers.

EDGE Analysis

Meeks' return from a thumb injury was shaky at best, as he shot 11.1 percent from the floor, but he saved his stat line somewhat at the free-throw line, draining seven of nine attempts at the charity stripe. His 20 minutes of usage was surprising considering his thumb required surgery, but this is most likely the kind of time Meeks will see moving forward. Evan Fournier and Terrence Ross have played well while Meeks has been out, and the Magic will most likely give their younger players playing time as the season winds down. With so many players ahead of him currently, Meeks holds very little fantasy value.

Meeks (thumb) will be available off the bench Monday against the 76ers, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Meeks has not played since mid-January after undergoing surgery to repair a strained right thumb, but after returning to practice recently he's been given the green light to play. Coach Frank Vogel said the veteran will be available off the bench in what will likely be a limited capacity. Conditioning shouldn't be a major factor, but Meeks will likely see somewhat of a reduced minutes load, as the team has little reason to give a 29-year-old on an expiring contract a heavy workload, especially given the presences of younger wings Terrence Ross, Mario Hezonja and Evan Fournier.

Meeks (thumb) has been cleared to play and is expected to be available for Monday's matchup against the 76ers, Marc. J. Spears of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

After being sidelined since Jan. 18 after surgery to repair a sprained right thumb, Meeks has been cleared for a full return to basketball activities, and will be available to take the floor during Monday's game. In 24 appearances with the Magic this season, Meeks has averaged 8.9 points on 40.4 percent from distance across 21.7 minutes per game, and could rejoin the regular rotation for the remainder of the year.
