Description: Lakers guard Jodie Meeks came out of nowhere to score 42 points Sunday in an upset win over OKC.
Insight: Meeks shot the lights out, connecting on 11 of his 18 field goal attempts including 6-of-11 from long range. He also helped defensively by providing four steals. The 42 points represents a new career-high for the five-year veteran.

Insight: A badly sprained ankle has kept Meeks out since February 4th. Steve Blake and Wesley Johnson will probably see a few less minutes in the likely event that Meeks plays on Wednesday.
 
2/8/2014 5:04:00 PM
Description: Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times reports that Jodie Meeks (ankle) is not expected to play again until after the All-Star break.
Insight: Meeks suffered an ankle sprain after just one minute on Feb. 4. He came in averaging 18.9 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.6 threes and 1.9 steals over his last 15 games. With Nick Young also out through the break, fantasy owners should grab Steve Blake and Wesley Johnson.
 
2/5/2014 10:52:00 AM
Description: The X-rays on Lakers guard Jodie Meeks' right ankle came back negative, but he will miss at least the next two games, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin.
Insight: Meeks left Tuesday's game with an ankle sprain after just one minute. He came in averaging 18.9 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.6 threes and 1.9 steals over his last 15 games. Nick Young, Wesley Johnson and Steve Blake will help fill the void.
 
2/4/2014 8:23:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Jodie Meeks left Tuesday's game with a right ankle sprain and won't return, according to Dave McMenamin of espn.com.
Insight: Meeks only played one minute and had zero points on 0-2 shooting. He came in averaging 18.9 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.6 threes and 1.9 steals over his last 15 games. Nick Young, Wesley Johnson and Steve Blake will help fill the void.
 
Hot1/31/2014 5:13:00 PM
Description: According to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News, Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni expects guard Jodie Meeks (foot) to play Friday.
Insight: Meeks is dealing with a minor foot injury. He has been good for 18.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.6 threes and 1.9 steals in his last 14 games and should be owned in all leagues.

Description: An MRI on Jodie Meeks' injured foot came back negative. He'll be ready to play Tuesday when the Lakers host Indiana. SOURCE: Ramona Shelburne, ESPN Los Angeles
Insight: Meeks looked fine in Sunday's loss to the Knicks (24 points in 43 minutes) so we're guessing the MRI was merely a precaution. He'll grab another start at shooting guard Tuesday against the Eastern Conference-leading Pacers.
 
Hot1/26/2014 6:16:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Jodie Meeks' 24 points, six threes and two steals were not enough to end the Lakers' losing streak.
Insight: Meeks has had a fantastic month, averaging 18.8 points, 2.6 threes and 1.8 steals in 13 games.
 
Hot1/15/2014 9:17:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles guard Jodie Meeks netted 26 points Tuesday in a loss to Cleveland.
Insight: Meeks shot just 2-of-10 from the field in his previous outing but was much better on Tuesday (9-of-14 including 6-of-10 from downtown). He's been Mamba-like in the month of January with averages of 20.5 ppg, 3.3 rpg and 3.2 apg. Meeks has made just under 44 percent of his field goals during that stretch.
 
Hot1/7/2014 10:57:00 PM
Description: Lakers shooting guard Jodie Meeks has averaged 21.7 ppg in his first three games this month.
Insight: Meeks had 24 points, six assists, four rebounds, four steals and four threes Tuesday at Dallas and is averaging 15.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.3 threes over his last 11 games. He should be owned in all leagues.
 
11/8/2013 6:43:00 PM
Description: Jodie Meeks will start at shooting guard for the Lakers Friday night, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.
Insight: With Steve Nash getting the night off, Los Angeles will start Steve Blake, Jodie Meeks, Nick Young, Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman against the Pelicans. Meeks had 18 points and five threes in 26 minutes Thursday at Houston and has scored in double figures in five of six games this season.
 
4/27/2013 6:55:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles shooting guard Jodie Meeks will sit out Sunday's Game 4 against San Antonio. SOURCE: Mike Bresnahan, Los Angeles Times
Insight: Meeks has a torn ligament in his ankle and he probably won't play another game this season. The Lakers will turn to the unproven Andrew Goudelock in Game 4. Get your broom ready, there's about to be a sweep.
 
4/25/2013 4:14:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Jodie Meeks (ankle) is doubtful for Game 3 against the Spurs, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPNLA.com. He missed Game 2.
Insight: The Lakers are down 2-0 to the Spurs and will not have Kobe Bryant or Steve Blake for Game 3. Meeks and Steve Nash are doubtful, leaving Darius Morris and Andrew Goudelock as the only healthy guards.
 
4/25/2013 10:04:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Jodie Meeks missed Game 2 against the Spurs Wednesday after spraining his left ankle in the team's Game 1 loss Sunday.
Insight: Meeks will have an MRI Thursday, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com. The Lakers are down 2-0 to the Spurs and may have to play Game 3 without Meeks, Steve Nash and Steve Blake. Andrew Goudelock and Darius Morris could be headed for big minutes.
 
4/24/2013 11:54:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Jodie Meeks is probable for Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals Wednesday against San Antonio while dealing with a sprained left ankle.
Insight: Meeks missed Tuesday's practice. He provides the Lakers with scoring off the bench, but played only 19 minutes in the first playoff game with the Spurs and posted just four points.
 
12/23/2012 10:13:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Jodie Meeks has scored in double figures in five straight games and seven of his last eight.
Insight: Meeks has provided the Lakers with some semblance of a bench threat (Metta World Peace has also moved to the bench the last two games) but any hope for sustained fantasy success likely slipped away when Steve Nash returned Saturday.
 
12/14/2012 10:24:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Jodie Meeks had a season-high 24 points on 9-of-14 shooting in 30 minutes off the bench Friday at Washington. Meeks added five rebounds, one assist and three steals.
Insight: Meeks has earned increased playing time from the desperate Lakers by averaging 15.2 points in his last five games.
 
8/13/2012 8:52:00 PM
Description: Guard Jodie Meeks has agreed to a new two-year, $3 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers. Meeks had spent the previous three seasons as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers.
Insight: Meeks has the skill to be a starter in this league (8.4 ppg in 2011-12) but that's not going to happen in Los Angeles, where Kobe Bryant reigns supreme at the shooting guard position. Considering that only three players logged more minutes per game than Bryant last season (Luol Deng, Kevin Love and Kevin Durant), it doesn't look like Meeks will be on the court enough to be much of a factor in fantasy hoops next season.
 
4/10/2012 7:08:00 PM
Description: Jodie Meeks will sub in for Evan Turner as Philadelphia's starting shooting guard Tuesday night against the 76ers.
Insight: Turner has been nonexistent for the 76ers during their recent losing streak and with the Bucks nipping at their heels for the final playoff spot, Doug Collins just can't afford to have a struggling player in the starting lineup right now. Not that Meeks has been playing much better: he was 0-7 from the field Sunday against the Celtics.
 
3/28/2012 10:04:00 AM
Description: Jodie Meeks went off in a surprising effort vs. Cleveland, starting in place of Andre Iguodala and scoring 31 points on 11-of-16 shooting, including seven 3-pointers.
Insight: It was actually Meeks' 40th start of the season, but he hasn't made this kind of impact for Philadelphia. Meeks gets an upgrade as a potential spot starter if Iguodala misses more time, but don't expect anywhere close to this kind of performance every night.
