Jodie Meeks Suffers Jones Fracture in Right Foot

Jodie Meeks is the first injury casualty of the regular season, after suffering a bone fracture in his right foot according to  Ryan Slocum of Detroit’s ABC 12 who tweeted, “Jodie Meeks has a Jones fracture in his foot. Same as Kevin Durant, Dez Bryant… Not good! #Pistons.”

Oakland Press Pistons beat writer Dave Pemberton confirmed the news, adding that the source was Pistons general manager and head coach, Stan Van Gundy,  “#Pistons Stan Van Gundy says Jodie Meeks has a fracture in his foot. No timetable yet.”

According to Rotoworld, Meeks incurred the injury in the second quarter:

Jodie Meeks limped to the locker room in the second quarter on Wednesday.

He had team doctors with him and it’s unclear how severe this injury is. He was able to get to the locker room under his own power. If he’s out, that could be even more minutes for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and the Pistons could also play Stanley Johnson at the two.
Meeks came over to the Pistons from the Los Angels Lakers last year but missed the first 22 games with a stress fracture to his lower back. Once back, he played solidly for the Pistons, averaging 11.1 points with a 48.5 effective field-goal percentage.
There was a general feeling of optimism about his start to the season as he is a decent marksman, hitting 37.3 percent for his career from three. And with Van Gundy’s four-out system developing around Andre Drummond, he was going to be a nice fit.
No timetable is set for his return, but as we learned last year with Kevin Durant, these can linger.
