07:28 AM ET 01.13 | The Lakers' many losses due to injury have become guard Jodie Meeks' gain. Meeks is now more than halfway to hitting an incentive in his contract that would reward him with an additional $200,000. According to his agreement with the Lakers, Meeks has a base compensation of $1.45 million for the 2013-14 season. If he averages at least 20 minutes through a minimum of 70 games, Meeks will earn an additional $100,000. Meeks hit a similar incentive last season, averaging 21.3 minutes a game to bump his $1.4-million salary to $1.5 million. Should Meeks stay at 25 minutes a game or higher, he'll be rewarded with an additional $100,000. Meeks was supposed to back up Kobe Bryant. Instead, Meeks has played 31.6 minutes and averaged 13.6 points a game.

If it wasnt for Nick Young and Reggie Evans being in the NBA Meeks would be the MOST one dimensional guy in the league.....

Kobe will be back and will make sure you don't get that $200k. Jim Buss had all the money reserved for Kobe... Lol

Meeks is probably the best player that plays for the Lakers now. That's not saying much but it is what it is....
