In his last five games, he made 21.4 percent of his shot attempts and 15.4 percent of his 3-pointers. Meeks still hasn’t regained the conditioning he lost since he underwent surgery in mid-July to stabilize a bone in his right foot. He returned to game action on Dec. 2. “I’m good enough to be out there in the amount of minutes that I’m playing,” Meeks said. “I don’t really believe in excuses. So if I’m out there, I’m 100 percent. I’m just doing whatever I can to help the team.”

The injury, a fracture of the fifth metatarsal to be exact, left Meeks out for the next 79 games. Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy decided to give him a whirl in the team’s regular-season finale at Cleveland, a game in which he scored 20 points and was 4 of 9 from the 3-point line, but he only saw two minutes in the playoffs. After that, he was traded to the Magic for a 2019 second-round pick. “It was tough. It was supposed to heal quicker than what it did, but I didn’t have any setbacks,” Meeks said. “It just wasn’t healing. It was tough not playing the sport you’re supposed to be playing. It was a down year for me, and I just tried to stay positive as much as possible.”
