Jeff Teague committed three fouls in the first quarter of Sunday's Game 1 loss, but he still racked up 15 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in 29 minutes.
Teague made 4-of-9 FGs and 6-of-7 FTs with one steal, one block and one 3-pointer, satisfying anyone who deployed him in DFS or a fantasy-playoff league. Before the game, Teague said the Wolves "have to push the ball and try to get some easy scores ... and we’re going to have to make some shots." They finished with only 10 fastbreak points, while shooting 43.8% from the field, yet they still had a chance to tie it up on the final possession. The Wolves will need a big series from Teague to upset the No. 1 seed Rockets. Apr 15 - 11:54 PM

Jeff Teague ended up with a game-high 25 points in Friday's 113-96 road victory against the Lakers.

Teague was sharp, hitting 9-of-16 from the field, including 2-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, and he was a perfect 5-of-5 from the free-throw stripe. He also chipped in with eight assists, four rebounds and two steals and did not show any ill effects from his pesky knee ailment.
Apr 7 - 1:36 AM

Jeff Teague (knee) is available to play on Friday against the Lakers.

He was called probable and he did play 36 minutes on Thursday, so Teague should be all set. Derrick Rose is also available.
Apr 6 - 9:38 PM

Jeff Teague (knee) is probable for Friday against the Lakers.

Teague played 36 minutes on Thursday, but the Wolves really can't lose this game. Teague should be in the starting lineup today.
Apr 6 - 3:42 PM

Jeff Teague (knee) scored 15 points with three rebounds, six assists and two turnovers in 36 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

He had arguably the most costly play with a turnover as he passed it to Jamal Crawford and it went out of bounds. Teague didn't seem to be affected by his knee injury with more shots and minutes than his season average. Keep an eye on him in a back-to-back set for Friday, but obviously the Wolves need a win.
Apr 6 - 1:12 AM

Jeff Teague (knee) will rejoin the Wolves starting lineup Thursday vs. Nuggets

Teague ends up missing just one game due to the knee issue. This is an important game for the Wolves, so having their starting PG back in the mix certainly helps. Tyus Jones will be bumped back to the bench.
Apr 5 - 10:00 PM

Coach Tom Thibodeau said he expected Jeff Teague (knee) to play against the Nuggets on Thursday.

This is a huge game for the Wolves and they'll need Teague to play well, especially if Jimmy Butler can't go. If Teague is limited, Tyus Jones would likely be looking at more run along with Jamal Crawford. We should have an official word in an hour or so.
Apr 5 - 9:06 PM

Jeff Teague (sore knee) is questionable to play Thursday against the Nuggets.

Teague wasn't able to take contact at Tuesday's practice, but we'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at Thursday's shootaround. If he's out again, Tyus Jones will draw another start, and he'll be someone to think about as a streamer. We should get another update by Thursday afternoon at the latest.
Apr 4 - 6:39 PM

Jeff Teague (sore knee) did not take contact at Tuesday's practice.

The extent to which Teague was able to participate isn't all that clear at this point, but him still not being able to take contact isn't a great sign regarding his status for Thursday's game in Denver. If he's forced to sit again, Tyus Jones will earn another start and he'll be a very attractive streamer. Stay tuned.
Apr 3 - 3:58 PM

Jeff Teague (sore knee) will not play vs. the Jazz on Sunday.

Tyus Jones will get the start in place of Teague, who should be considered day-to-day -- Tom Thibodeau said he was "nicked up" and he was a game-time decision. Jamal Crawford should also earn more ball-handling duties while Teague is sidelined.
Apr 1 - 5:23 PM

Jeff Teague (sore knee) is a game-time call vs. the Jazz on Sunday.

We finally learned that Teague is dealing with a sore knee -- coach Tom Thibodeau simply said he was "nicked up" when he was limited to 20 minutes on Friday. Derrick Rose (ankle) is also a game-time call, so we may see a lot of Tyus Jones and Jamal Crawford tonight.
Apr 1 - 11:50 AM

Jeff Teague played just 20 minutes vs. the Mavericks on Friday with 14 points, four rebounds, two assists, one block and two triples.

He checked out with 2:47 left in the third quarter and didn't return. Teague was holding his right hip, and while there's nothing official in regards to an injury, coach Tom Thibodeau simply said he was "nicked up." If we do hear bad news, Tyus Jones would become a low-end PG in standard leagues and Jamal Crawford would benefit and is coming off a great game with 24 points.
Mar 30 - 11:23 PM

Jeff Teague made 4-of-12 from the field for 11 points with eight rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday.

Foul trouble kept his minutes down after playing 42 against the Grizzlies on Monday. Teague has felt Tyus Jones behind him all season, but coach Tom Thibodeau doesn't seem like he'll be making any changes the rest of the way. With the Wolves fighting for the playoffs, Teague should be good to go until the last couple games of the season.
Mar 28 - 11:18 PM

Jeff Teague hit 7-of-13 shots, a 3-pointer and 10-of-10 free throws for 25 points, two rebounds, seven assists and two steals in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies.

Teague bounced back after a couple off games, when he scored a total of just 13 points, but has also scored at least 20 in three of his last five games. The Wolves are now the No. 8 seed in the West and are just 1.5 games up on the No. 9 Nuggets, so it should be all hands on deck going forward, which is good news for Teague's fantasy owners. Hopefully he can keep it going in a tasty revenge game against the Hawks on Wednesday. Teague should be nearly a must-play in all formats for that one.
Mar 26 - 10:38 PM

Jeff Teague scored 20 points with 12 assists, four rebounds, one triple and three turnovers in Tuesday's win over the Clippers.

He controlled the game tonight and was even better than his stat line suggested. "He does an unbelievable job making the right calls," Jamal Crawford said of the Wolves starting PG. Teague finished 8-of-13 from the field and hit all three free throws as he racked up his 12th game of the season with 20+ points and his 13th double-double. He'll get a tasty matchup vs. the Knicks on Friday, a team that has allowed the eighth most fantasy points to PGs this season.
