Jodie Meeks to miss at least three months with broken foot

New, comments

For the second straight year, Jodie Meeks will miss a large chunk of the beginning of the season.

The Detroit Pistons announced today that Jodie Meeks will miss 12 to 16 weeks while he recovers from his Jones fracture. This timetable is a bit longer than expected considering it is double the original diagnosis Kevin Durant received last year for a Jones fracture. However, that could be due to the placement of the fracture and/or procedure needed.

As was evidenced with Durant last year, this recovery can be difficult. Durant missed 55 games last year which ended his season. Meeks has a chance to be back for a playoff push should the Pistons be in the mix come March. However, it took a while for Jodie to regain his form last year. So let's hope he's ready for the first round.
