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.

Make it a fracture of his fifth metatarsal for Jodie Meeks. A 12-16 week time frame means a March return possible.— Keith Langlois (@Keith_Langlois) October 30, 2015
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.
