News: Meeks is expected to miss about eight weeks because of a stress reaction of his lower back. Impact: Meeks signed a $19.5 million, three-year deal with the Pistons this offseason. He was diagnosed with back spasms last week and had additional testing done because of continuing discomfort. Meeks started 70 games last season, averaged a career-high 15.7 points and shot 40 percent from 3-point range.(STATS, 3:18pm)

News: Meeks (back) has a stress reaction in his lower back and will likely be sidelined for a few months. Impact: This is obviously a significant blow to the Pistons, who brought Meeks in as a free agent this offseason. He'll likely be out until late-December or early-January, opening the door for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to grab a firm hold on the starting shooting guard job once he returns from a knee sprain. Meeks' absence could also mean increased minutes for Kyle Singler and veteran Caron butler.(RotoWire, )

News: Meeks (back) did not practice Saturday, reports. Impact: A bout of back spasms kept Meeks from Thursday's exhibition as well as Friday's practice, and it seems his discomfort is still lingering. His chances of playing in Sunday's preseason game against the Wizards seem minimal.(RotoWire, )

News: Meeks (back) didn't practice Friday,'s Keith Langlois reports. Impact: He is dealing with back spasms, so it's unlikely that this carries into the regular season, although back issues occasionally crop back up. Meeks will cost next-to-nothing on draft day, yet he could return production resembling that of a poor man's Kyle Korver playing in Stan Van Gundy's offense.(RotoWire, )

News: Meeks has been ruled out of Thursday's preseason game versus the Bucks due to back spasms. Impact: Meeks' absence will allow rising second-year player Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to start at shooting guard Thursday evening. Behind him, reserve Cartier Martin is expected to return from a shoulder problem. At the moment, it's unclear whether Meeks will be sidelined beyond Thursday because of his back spasms.(RotoWire, )
