Jodie Meeks missed 147 games over the previous three years before contributing steadily to the Wizards’ bench this season.

This will raise questions about how he got and stayed healthy.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

Meeks appeared to be on the edge of Washington’s playoff rotation, more likely on the outside looking in, anyway. The Wizards will rely on much-improved Tomas Satoransky behind John Wall and Bradley Beal in the backcourt.

Meeks will lose $29,909 for every Washington playoff game he misses. He’s now even more likely to exercise his $3,454,500 player option for next season. Each game remaining on his suspension next season will cost him $31,405 of that salary.
