Jodie Meeks will miss the rest of the road trip for the Lakers with a sprained ankle according to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times:

Immediately after Steve Blake and Steve Nash return, Jodie Meeks goes down with a sprained ankle on a three-point attempt in the first quarter against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Less than three minutes into the game against the Timberwolves, Meeks was forced to head to the locker room with a right ankle sprain according to Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report:

The Lakers simply can’t stay healthy this season even when players return. With Nash and Blake coming back after missing the bulk of the games over the last two months, the Lakers were thought to finally have a solid rotation in the backcourt.

Unfortunately, the injury to Meeks continues the trend of backcourt players going down, but at least Nash and Blake are back with Jordan Farmar also nearing his return.

Although Nash, Blake and Farmar are finally healthy, the Lakers may have Meeks on the shelf with the ankle sprain along with Kobe Bryant who is still dealing with a knee injury.
