Jeff Teague played well on Saturday, scoring 22 points (6-of-14 shooting) with nine assists, two rebounds, one steal, and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Mavs.
Teague looked good again on Saturday after a dud on Friday. He's become quite a sneaky and underrated contributor at point guard. He's had one good game and one bad game with Jimmy Butler in the lineup before playing well without him in this one. He's a good bet to return mid-round value. Oct 21 - 12:52 AM

Jeff Teague scored a team-high 27 points in a losing effort on Wednesday, making 8-of-12 FGs and 9-of-9 FTs with four assists and two steals.

Teague was 2-of-3 from deep and did his damage in a modest 32 minutes, highlighting the reason he was an undervalued PG to target in the middle rounds. He did tweak his right ankle tonight but walked it off and appeared no worse for the wear, so we're leaving him off the injury report. He snuck into top-60 value last year and should improve with another year's experience under coach Tom Thibodeau, so owners can set-it-and-forget-it with him as a fantasy starter.

Jeff Teague scored 17 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

As expected, Teague saw much more opportunity on offense with Jimmy Butler off the floor. His scoring and overall usage are higher when Butler was off the court last year, and most of his other stats are up, too. Maybe Teague winds up on the trade block, but he's worth a pick closer to 50 than to 75 in standard leagues.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of, the asking price for the Suns to get involved in a three-team Jimmy Butler trade is "far too steep."

Additionally, John Gambadoro reports that the Suns aren't going after Teague and had no conversations. A Butler-to-Miami deal is almost certainly going to need a third team, so Phoenix should take a stance on what they want in a deal. As far as the Suns' timeline goes, it doesn't make much sense to go after Teague as a band-aid to their current PG concerns.

The Suns are reportedly interested in Jeff Teague and Tyus Jones.

They're still looking for a starting point guard, and if Goran Dragic is included in part of the Jimmy Butler trade, that would make one of the other Minnesota point guards expendable. Pheonix is willing to be the third team here to help facilitate a deal if they can nab a starting PG, and Sacramento is also willing to get involved if they can sneak a first-rounder. Teague or Jones in Phoenix would be fantasy gold.

Jeff Teague (finger) shot 6-of-14 from the field for 17 points on Wednesday, going 3-of-5 from deep with seven assists, four rebounds and one turnover in 37 minutes.

Teague dislocated his pinkie finger during Game 4 but returned after having it re-set, and there was never any doubt about his status tonight. He quietly put up top-60 value in his first season with the Wolves and should stick in that range next season -- Teague will earn a guaranteed $19.0 million and the Wolves' core is almost entirely under contract for 2018-19, so we're not expecting drastic shifts in fantasy value.

Jeff Teague went through shootaround on Wednesday and is expected to play against the Rockets.

He dislocated his finger in Game 4 and was able to return, but coach Tom Thibodeau said it Teague is doing better. "[The injury is] a weird sort of thing. That hurt him some, but he’s fine today," Thibodeau said. Teague will be in the lineup today, but he may not be 100 percent. Derrick Rose is a chalky punt play today.

Jeff Teague (dislocated finger) is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's Game 5 in Houston.

Teague hurt his finger during Monday's Game 4 loss, but he was available to return, and there was never much doubt about his availability for tomorrow's game. We'll have official confirmation on his status closer to Wednesday's tip.
Apr 24 - 6:10 PM

Jeff Teague hit just 1-of-7 shots or two points, one rebound, five assists and nothing else in Monday's 119-100 loss to the Rockets.

He suffered a jammed finger during the game and while he was able to return, he wasn't really needed after the Rockets outscored the Rockets 50-20 in the third quarter. Teague might be a little iffy for Wednesday's Game 5, but our guess is he'll be in the starting lineup. Just be prepared to make sure he's good to go if you plan on using him. Teague was a massive fantasy disappointment tonight after going for 23 points, eight assists and three 3-pointers in Game 3.

Jeff Teague (jammed finger) will return to Game 4 on Monday.

He went back to the locker room for a few minutes, but returned with his right pinky finger taped up. Teague should be good to go the rest of the evening.

Jeff Teague left Monday's Game 4 with an apparent hand injury and went back to the locker room.

He was holding his right hand in a lot of pain and briefly chatted with the team trainer before heading to the back. We'll have an update shortly, but we could see a lot of Derrick Rose if Teague's injury keeps him out.
Apr 23 - 8:33 PM

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.
