Meeks tallied 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds, and one steal in 29 minutes during Saturday's 124-101 victory over Chicago.
Meeks scored a season-high 14 points in Saturday's blowout victory, hitting two triples and adding five rebounds. The Raptors played around with their rotations in the comfortable victory and that could be the case moving forward. Meeks has the ability to hit multiple three-pointers and should he see in excess of 25 minutes, could be a backend streaming option.
Meeks agreed to terms on a deal that will keep him with the Raptors for the remainder of the season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The veteran spent time with the Raptors earlier in the season, and he'll now join the team for the remainder of the year as insurance off the bench. Meeks previously saw time in only two games for Toronto, totaling 15 points and four rebounds in 24 minutes of action.
The Raptors don't plan to re-sign Meeks after his 10-day contract expired Saturday, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.
The expiration of Meeks' deal leaves the Raptors with just 13 players on the roster, giving the team two weeks to get back to league-mandated 14. For now, Toronto looks content to fill that spot with some of the other options available on the waiver wire, with Lewenberg noting that veteran center Marcin Gortat could be under consideration for the opening. Meeks only appeared in two games for Toronto during his brief stint with the club, averaging 7.5 points and 2.0 boards in 12.0 minutes.
Meeks will sign a 10-day contract with the Raptors, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Meeks hasn't played since last season, when he appeared in 77 games for the Wizards, averaging 6.3 points and 1.6 rebounds across 14.5 minutes. The Raptors are presumably looking for some floor spacing off the bench, and Meeks has shot 37.6 percent from distance since the 2010-11 season.
Meeks will be waived by the Bucks on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
This was the plan all along when the Bucks acquired Meeks from Washington back in October, picking up a trade exception in the process. Meeks has been suspended to begin the year stemming from a violation of the league's anti-drug policy, and he'll be waived after Saturday's game against the Spurs with the suspension fully served. The veteran will be free to sign with another team, but it's unclear how much interest he'll generate on the open market.
Meeks was traded to the Bucks on Monday and will be waived, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Wizards will send Meeks, who's currently suspended for a violation of the league's anti-drug program, as well as cash and a second-round pick to the Bucks, who will use a trade exception to absorb Meeks before waiving him. It's essentially a means of opening up a roster spot for the Wizards and a pick-grab by Milwaukee, which did not have interest in keeping the veteran shooter around. Meeks will now become a free agent, but he won't be able to play until he complete's his 25-game ban, which he cannot begin serving until he signs with another team.
Meeks exercised his player option for the 2018-19 season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Meeks' option is a relatively cheap one -- just $3.4 million -- and will only pay him about $160,000 more than he made during the 2017-18 season. The 30-year-old appeared in 77 games -- his most in four years -- for the Wizards, but he shot just 39.9 percent from the floor and 34.3 percent from three, nearly three percentage points lower than his career mark. The Kentucky product will once again fill a minor role off the bench, but he'll miss roughly a quarter of the regular season after being suspended in April for a violation of the league's Anti-Drug policy.
Meeks was suspended for 25 games Friday for violating the NBA Anti-Drug program, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
With the Wizards not expected to make it out of the first round against the Raptors, Meeks' season is essentially over and his suspension will likely carry over to next year. Without Meeks, Washington's backcourt depth takes a pretty big hit, as the shooting guard was starting to play a decent-sized role off the bench. Without Meeks, Kelly Oubre will surely see an expanded role off the bench, and the Wizards may also experiment with giving more minutes to the likes of Tomas Satoransky, Ramon Sessions or Ty Lawson in the backcourt.
Meeks scored 18 points (6-14 FG, 5-10 3PT, 1-2 FT) to go with two rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes during Wednesday's 101-92 loss to Orlando.
From the bench, Meeks sank a season-high five three-pointers to lead all scorers in the regular season finale. After playing a combined 22 minutes in his previous three games, the guard played 19 minutes Wednesday. In his previous six games, Meeks averaged only 4.3 points.
Meeks saw three minutes of action but failed to attempt a shot during the Wizards' 119-115 loss at Cleveland on Thursday.
Meeks erupted for 23 points back on Mar. 10 against the Heat but since then, he has not been a threat offensively against opposing teams. The former Kentucky guard is adding 6.2 points and 1.7 rebounds across 75 games played this season.
Meeks (illness) will be available Friday against the Nuggets, Zach Rosen of WashingtonWizards.com reports.
Meeks missed Wednesday's loss to the Spurs due to an illness, but both he and Mike Scott, who also sat out with a similar condition, will be back to availability Friday. In the month of March, Meeks holds per-game averages of 7.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists.
Meeks (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.
Meeks was averaging 18.9 minutes over his past seven games, leaving the Wizards with a hole in their second unit wing rotation. Meeks' absence will likely result in increased roles for Kelly Oubre, Ramon Sessions and Tim Frazier.
Meeks will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest against the Spurs after missing morning shootaround due to flu-like symptoms, Chris Miller of NBCS Washington reports.
Meeks has garnered extended run lately due to the absence of John Wall (knee), averaging 8.4 points, 2.1 boards and 1.3 assists in 18.9 minutes over the past seven tilts. So, if he's unable to play Wednesday, it would seemingly result in rotational changes. The strongest candidate to see an expanded role is Kelly Oubre, who often steps up when a wing player is unavailable.
Meeks had 23 points (7-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during Saturday's 129-102 loss to the Heat.
Meeks put up a season-high of 23 points in Saturday's embarrassing loss to Miami. He was afforded some additional playing time with the game basically over midway through the third quarter. Meeks has the ability to score the ball when he is given the opportunity but fails to contribute anywhere else. Owners should not get too excited about this line and other than a streaming option in deeper leagues, he should be left alone.
Meeks scored eight points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) in 16 minutes during Tuesday's 107-104 win over the Bucks.
Meeks continues to see double-digit minutes more often than not. However, he is averaging just 6.2 points (38.4 FG, 31.9 3Pt, 87.0 FT), 1.6 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.9 threes, 0.4 steals, and 0.1 blocks in 14.7 minutes per contest through 58 appearances in 2017-18.
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 has agreed to terms on a two-year, $7 million contract with the Wizards, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
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.
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.
