Jodie Meeks (Guard) - Waiver Wire Pickup

Trevor Crippen - RotoBaller

Baller Move: Add Immediately for Steals/Threes

Analysis: He may have been dropped due to the sprained ankle that’s kept him out the last couple weeks, but he’s due back after the All-Star Break, and will likely reclaim a spot in the starting lineup from the uninspiring Wes Johnson.  In case you forgot how good Meeks was, here are his standard nine category numbers from January: .461 FG%, .882 FT% (on a sizeable 5.1 att/game), 2.6 3 PM/g, 2.8 R/G, 2.7 A/G, 1.9 STL/G, 0 BLK/G, 2.2 TO/G, 18.9 PPG.  That’s a top 50 overall line.  It’s even more valuable if you specifically need a big boost in steals, threes and FT%.  Maybe once Kobe BryantNick Young and Xavier Henry are healthy, minutes at the wings for the Lakers start to get tight and hurt Meeks, but for now, coming out the break, Meeks still looks like he’s in a good spot to produce big numbers.
