Jeff Teague scored 25 points during a 131-109 loss to the Blazers on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, eight assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.
The Pacers defense was a no-show in this loss, but at least their offense didn't suffer too much without Paul George (ankle). Teague was coming in with very little momentum, scoring just 16 points combined in his previous two. He'll get at least one more game without George in a matchup against Chris Paul on Sunday. CP3 held Teague to just seven points on Nov. 30, so it won't be easy for him. Dec 1 - 1:17 AM

Jeff Teague struggled scoring the ball on Sunday, going 3-of-8 from the field for seven points, 10 dimes, two assists, two steals and one block.

He and Monta Ellis were scoreless on combined 0-of-11 shooting in the first half, and Teague played only 24 minutes tonight due to foul trouble. He still got the better of Chris Paul, who had four assists vs. four turnovers, and the short-handed Pacers wound up with a surprisingly lopsided 91-70 home victory.

Jeff Teague flirted with a triple-double on Friday vs. the Nets, scoring nine points with nine rebounds, eight assists, three steals and four turnovers in 24 minutes.

The game was a blowout, so Teague didn't get the chance to record the first triple-double of his career. He shot 4-of-8 from the field, but failed to hit a 3-pointer for the third straight game. With Paul George (ankle) out for the next two games and C.J. Miles (knee) still on the shelf, Teague is poised for a monster week.
Nov 26 - 12:40 AM

Jeff Teague (sprained right ankle) shot 5-of-15 vs. his former team on Wednesday, finishing with 11 points, six rebounds, eight assists, five steals and two blocks in 39 minutes.

Teague exited Monday's game after twisting his ankle, but coach Nate McMillan said he could have returned if necessary. Needless to say, he's fine. He's really picked up his play after a quiet start to the season and is currently sitting on top-50 roto value.

Jeff Teague (ankle) is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

Teague suffered a minor right ankle tweak during Monday's blowout loss to the Warriors and did not return, but him not getting back to the court that night was obviously due to the lopsided score. Feel free to get him active.
Nov 23 - 6:30 PM

Pacers coach Nate McMillan said that Jeff Teague could've returned to Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

He left the game with a right ankle sprain and did not return, but judging by McMillan's post-game comments, it sounds like it was a minor tweak. The Warriors won by 37 points, so the Pacers didn't feel the need to push their starting PG back out there. Barring another update, we'll consider Teague probable for Wednesday's game vs. Atlanta. Aaron Brooks is no longer a speculative pickup in deeper formats.

Jeff Teague (ankle) will not return to Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

The Pacers are calling the injury a right ankle sprain. The Warriors are in cruise control with a significant lead, so it's not a surprise that Teague's night is done. He finished with 11 points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks. Aaron Brooks is worth a speculative pickup in very deep leagues. For what it's worth, it was Teague's left ankle that caused him problems last season. Stay tuned for another update.
Nov 21 - 8:46 PM

Jeff Teague tied his career-high with six steals in 40 minutes vs. OKC on Sunday, going 9-of-16 from the field and 9-of-9 from the line to finish with 30 points, nine assists, five rebounds and three 3-pointers.

Teague had four steals in the first half alone and he took full advantage of an expanded role with Paul George (ankle) on the sidelines. It was the first half of a back-to-back set for the Pacers and PG-13 has already been ruled out for Monday, so another huge game could be looming for Teague. His slow start this season is a distant memory.
Nov 20 - 10:25 PM

Jeff Teague scored 21 points against the Suns on Friday with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and six turnovers in 34 minutes.

He saw a usage rate spike last Saturday without Paul George (ankle) and he was asked to do more on-ball stuff in this game. Teague's shooting woes from earlier in the season seem to be behind him, so expect him to be a top-60 guy the rest of the way. He'll have a higher ceiling for each night George misses action.
Nov 18 - 10:48 PM

Jeff Teague scored 20 points with three rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer against the Celtics on Saturday.

He fouled out in this game for the just the fourth time in his career. Teague is finally getting it going as a scorer in his last five, averaging 18.6 points, 1.6 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 treys on 49.2 percent from the field and 92.3 percent from the line. If you somehow got him off a worried owner two weeks ago, nicely done. Teague should cruise as a mid-round guy.
Nov 12 - 11:13 PM

Jeff Teague recovered from Monday's blowout-influenced dud to score a season-high 30 points with nine assists on Wednesday.

"I thought he was aggressive," said coach Nate McMillan. "We needed every bucket that he made tonight." Teague was clutch in the fourth quarter and finished 10-of-16 from the field and 9-of-10 from the line, with two steals, one block and just one turnover in 41 minutes. He got off to a very slow start this year, shooting just 32.5 percent from the field, but it was a matter of time before he turned things around. The buy-low window just slammed shut.
Nov 9 - 10:20 PM

Jeff Teague got loose on Saturday during a 111-94 win over the Bulls, making 9-of-14 from the field for 21 points with one rebound, six assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

There he is. Teague made just 24.6 percent from the field in his previous games this season with a lot of jumpers. That's basically the reverse of Teague. In fact, last year he was at a 72.5 effective field goal percentage (eFG%) on catch-and-shoot, and in his previous games before tonight he was at just 33.3 eFG% on those. We're expecting him to keep it rolling as a solid mid-round guy.
Nov 5 - 9:34 PM

Jeff Teague made 4-of-11 from the field for 16 points with four rebounds, six assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday.

He's off to a terrible start and just can't connect on his open looks, making just 22.0 percent from the field in his previous four. Teague obviously won't be losing his minutes and he's going to get a lot of open jumpers in this up-tempo offense. On the bright side, he has at least six assists in every game this year. He's a great buy-low candidate.
Nov 3 - 11:44 PM

Jeff Teague's struggles continued on Tuesday vs. the Lakers, scoring nine points on 4-of-15 shooting with six rebounds, six assists, two steals, one trey and three turnovers in 33 minutes.

He's in a brutal slump right now and was shooting 20.0 percent from the field in his previous three. If there's one positive about tonight's line, it's that he hit his first triple of the season. Teague will eventually get it going and his job isn't in any danger like it was in Atlanta last season, so he's a very nice buy-low target.
Nov 1 - 10:43 PM

Jeff Teague missed all seven shots from the field and did not go to the line in 28 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday, adding four rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two turnovers.

Uh oh. Teague is now just 7-of-35 from the field (20 percent) this season and is struggling all over the court. He's missing his open shots and he can't shake the rim protection under the basket. Teague did have a down season last year, but there's still no reason to worry about this putrid start. He is a buy-low candidate as one of the best shooting point guards in the Eastern Conference.
