Jodie Meeks (dislocated thumb) will not require surgery but will miss the next 4-6 weeks with two sprained ligaments.
Meeks has had a significant role on the Magic filling in for the injured Evan Fournier (heel). There is no word yet when Fournier will return but in the meantime, Frank Vogel said that we will see D.J. Augustin and Elfrid Payton playing together with Mario Hezonja and C.J. Watson getting a bump in minutes as well. Augustin seems like the biggest winner here and may be worth a speculative add in 14-team leagues for his scoring and three point shooting.
