  • Meeks chipped in 21 points (5-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 8-9 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 118-113 loss to the 76ers. Meeks finished with season highs in scoring, made field goals, and made free throws and matched his season high in rebounding. Bradley Beal (eye) was elbowed in the face and will undergo an exam on Thursday after being limited to 23 minutes. If Beal is forced to miss any time, Meeks would likely step in as the starting shooting guard, though it's too early to assume Beal will be out -- especially since he returned to the contest. Still, the Wizards will be looking for offense with John Wall (knee) out for a couple weeks, so Meeks could be called upon to provide scoring against another one of his former teams (Pistons) on Friday.

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