Meeks returned in March for the Magic and finished the season and he insists those injuries are a thing of the past. “I would say I’m 100 percent now. Thank the good Lord that I’m past that. It’s summer time, so my body feels great,” Meeks said. “I came back from my thumb at the end of the season. I played okay and finished out the season healthy. This summer I got some rest. Now I’m working out again and I feel fine.”
