Jeff Teague had nine points, 10 assists and three steals vs. the Clippers on Sunday, making 3-of-10 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs with one 3-pointers in 35 minutes.
Teague said he was "winded" but otherwise fine during his return on Friday. "I didn't know I'd play that much," he said. "Tyus [Jones] has been playing really well. I figured he'd play more." Tom Thibodeau loves to ride his starters and he stuck with an eight-man rotation tonight, so Teague is basically a lock for 30+ minutes whenever he's healthy. Dec 3 - 10:49 PM

Jeff Teague returned on Friday with 11 points, three rebounds, 10 assists and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Thunder.

He was a fairly quiet in his return, but the minutes were encouraging. The Wolves may be extremely careful with Teague because we've seen guys like Mike Conley (Achilles) really struggle through soreness in his Achilles, and he was a game-time call for four straight. Still, get Teague in your lineups and expect mid-round value when healthy.

Jeff Teague (Achilles) is available to play against the Thunder on Friday.

After missing a week, he is finally back. Teague has been a game-time call for each of his last three, and again today he wanted to make sure he warmed without an issue. There's a chance his minutes are slightly down in his return, especially with how well Tyus Jones played. Jones will be taking a hit, so his savvy owners that used him in the past four games may want to think about dropping him.

Jeff Teague (Achilles) said he is "prepared to play" Friday vs. OKC but "still needs to go through warmups."

Teague has been a game-time decision in each of Minnesota's last three contests and has ended up sitting out each one. Tyus Jones will draw another start if Teague is unable to play. Jones has been impressive, averaging 12.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 4.0 steals starting in place of Teague these last three games.

Jeff Teague (right achilles soreness) remains out for Wednesday's game against New Orleans, and Tyus Jones will start again in his place again.

Make that 0-of-3 on Teague for game-time calls, and this will be his fourth game out of the lineup. He should be getting closer and hopefully he can make it back this weekend. Jones makes sense as a stream and could have some short-term value.

Jeff Teague (Achilles) is a game-time call again for Wednesday against the Pelicans.

Another game, another game-time call for Teague. He's been a game-time call for the last two, but he didn't suit up. He looked somewhat close on Tuesday, so maybe today's the day he comes back. If not, Tyus Jones will look to build off his season high in scoring and should be worth streaming or using in DFS.

Jeff Teague (Achilles) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Wizards.

Teague will miss third straight game, but the fact that he warmed up again suggests that he could return any day now. With Teague on the shelf again, look for Tyus Jones to start and play big minutes with Aaron Brooks picking up the scraps off the bench.
Nov 28 - 7:51 PM

Jeff Teague (Achilles) and Nemanja Bjelica (foot) will go through their pregame routines before a decision is made on their playing status for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

Knowing Tom Thibodeau, we likely won't have official word on either of these guys until just prior to tip-off, but if Teague is forced to the sidelines, that would grant Tyus Jones another opportunity to start and Jimmy Butler would see some increased playmaking opportunities. Bjelica's absence would open up some minutes for Gorgui Dieng and Shabazz Muhammad, but they wouldn't play enough to make a meaningful impact in most leagues.

Jeff Teague (Achilles) and Nemanja Bjelica (foot) will both be game-time decisions for Tuesday's matchup with the Wizards.

Both players will "test things out before deciding on playing" Tuesday evening. Tyus Jones will draw another start if Teague is unable to play. Jones was terrific in his first career start on Sunday, finishing with nine points, four rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and a career-high seven steals in 39 minutes. Jones will be very heavily owned in all DFS action if Teague is ruled out.
Nov 28 - 12:52 PM

Jeff Teague (Achilles) and Nemanja Bjelica (foot) are being listed as game-time decisions in the game notes for Tuesday's matchup with the Wizards.

First things first, this report is stemming from the game notes which are notoriously unreliable, and even worse coming from a reporter from a Wizards' reporter, so we wouldn't read too much into the game-time designation. Owners can expect to get another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround, but if Teague does indeed need to spend one more game on the sidelines, Tyus Jones would essentially be a must-play guy in DFS and Jimmy Butler would run the offense more.
Nov 27 - 2:43 PM

Jeff Teague (Achilles) said he will not play Sunday vs. Phoenix.

This will be Teague's second straight game on the sidelines, and for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards, which will be the first game of a back-to-back set. Aaron Brooks drew the start in Teague's place on Friday night, but was quickly benched in favor of Tyus Jones. Jones finished with eight points, six boards, six assists, four steals, two triples and three turnovers in 33 minutes, so he'll make for a solid DFS target today.
Nov 26 - 2:49 PM

Jeff Teague (Achilles) and Nemanja Bjelica (foot) will test out their injuries during shootaround.

They are still considered questionable to play on Sunday vs. the Suns, and coach Tom Thibodeau said he didn't have an update. Aaron Brooks played 13 minutes in the starting lineup with Teague on the shelf Friday, while Tyus Jones was the better fantasy play with eight points, six rebounds, six assists, four steals and two 3-pointers.
Nov 26 - 1:57 PM

Jeff Teague (right Achilles soreness) is questionable for Sunday against the Suns.

He was a late scratch on Friday and Aaron Brooks got the start, but Tyus Jones started the second half in a losing effort. Jones finished with eight points, six rebounds, six assists, four steals and two 3-pointers, so he would become a viable play in a very favorable matchup. Teague will likely be a game-time call and hopefully won't be out long.
Nov 25 - 4:58 PM

Coach Tom Thibodeau said that Jeff Teague (Achilles soreness) is considered day-to-day and that he will be re-evaluated on Saturday.

Teague was sidelined for Friday's loss to Miami, snapping a streak of 167 consecutive games played. The Wolves next game is Sunday vs. the Suns. Aaron Brooks started Friday's game, but he was benched to start the second half and finished with three points, two assists and one rebound in 13 minutes. Tyus Jones started the second half and tallied eight points, six rebounds, six assists and four steals in 33 minutes.
Nov 25 - 10:30 AM

Jeff Teague will miss Friday's game vs. the Heat with right Achilles soreness.

Teague had the third longest streak in the NBA with 167 consecutive starts, but hopefully he'll be back out there for Sunday's game vs. the Suns. The Wolves will start Aaron Brooks in Teague's place, but Tyus Jones could end up splitting the PG minutes with Brooks down the middle.
