Jeff Teague hit just 3-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, three rebounds, four assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Mavs.
Teague didn't have it tonight and Dennis Schroder picked up his slack. Look for Teague to get it going again on Friday against the Magic. He came in dealing with an illness, but he hasn't looked like himself for a couple weeks now, averaging just 11.2 points and 4.2 assists over his last five games. Feb 25 - 11:03 PM

Date:

Jeff Teague (illness) is expected to play on Wednesday, according to coach Mike Budenholzer.

The Hawks' game vs. the Mavericks was threatened by icy conditions but it will be played as scheduled, and it sounds like Teague will be in the starting lineup. We'll let you know if anything changes prior to tip-off.
Feb 25 - 5:59 PM

The Hawks and Mavs are still scheduled to play on Wednesday.

Contrary to what Shelvin Mack just said, the Hawks and Mavericks will play as of right now. We'll still look for another official update from the teams soon.
Feb 25 - 3:47 PM

Jeff Teague (illness) was not present at Tuesday's practice.

Teague has a day to recover before the Hawks face the Mavericks on Wednesday, but we'll consider him questionable until we hear more. If Teague is unable to suit up, Dennis Schroder would likely get the start in his absence and would make for a solid plug-and play option against the Mavs.
Feb 24 - 12:37 PM

The Hawks used a big fourth quarter to defeat the Bucks on Sunday, with Jeff Teague contributing 10 points, one rebound, two assists, four steals and one block in the win.

He also turned the ball over four times in 28 minutes and fantasy owners should stay patient despite his recent mini-slump. Over the past five games he's averaging only 11.4 points, 0.6 threes, 1.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists, well below his season numbers, but it's only a matter of time before he bounces back.
Feb 22 - 6:10 PM

Jeff Teague (ankle) returned to action on Monday, scoring 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting (including a three) with one rebound, seven assists and three steals in 32 minutes.

Teague hasn't missed a beat and his breakout season continues. The Hawks have not lost two games in a row since November 18.
Feb 10 - 2:06 AM

Jeff Teague will start against the Wolves on Monday.

He should be ready to go in what looks to be favorable matchup against an up-tempo team. Teague has been on a roll lately and has scored at least 20 points in all four February games, averaging 23.0 points, 7.0 dimes, 1.5 assists and 1.5 treys. Get him in your lineup.
Feb 9 - 7:27 PM

Jeff Teague is hopeful to play on Monday against the Wolves.

He suffered an ankle sprain late on Sunday and it doesn't sound serious. The Hawks did not mention him on the injury report, so he's likely a go. We'll look for another update soon. If he's out, Dennis Schroder will start.
Feb 9 - 6:59 PM

Jeff Teague turned an ankle late in Sunday's game but he quickly returned to the court, finishing a tough road loss with 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting, one 3-pointer, six assists and four turnovers.

The Hawks play again on Monday and Teague's ankle may swell up overnight, so we'll include him on the injury report as a precaution. Shelvin Mack (calf) recently returned to action and he'll likely back up Dennis Schroder at PG if Teague is forced to miss any time.
Feb 8 - 8:42 PM

Jeff Teague was effective on both ends of the floor during an impressive 124-116 win over the Warriors on Friday, scoring 23 points with three rebounds, seven assists, three steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

Besides the third quarter, Teague did a fine job on Stephen Curry. This was his 22nd 20-point game this season and his third in a row. The Hawks are going to finish above .500 this season with their 42-9 record and hold an eight-game lead for the Eastern Conference one seed. As for Teague, the breakout is real and he should keep it going all season.
Feb 7 - 12:31 AM

Jeff Teague hit 9-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 26 points, eight assists and two steals in Wednesday's win over John Wall and the Wizards.

Teague put up a nice fight against Wall tonight, but Wall's rebounds gave him a slight edge in fantasy, while the Hawks got the win in reality. The Hawks saw all five of their starters (Teague, Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll, Paul Millsap and Al Horford) named the Eastern Conference Players of the Month for January. The month marked the first time that five starters averaged double digits in points and the team went undefeated with at least 10 games. The Hawks were 17-0 in January.
Feb 4 - 10:40 PM

The Hawks' 19-game winning streak came to an end against the Pelicans on Monday, but Jeff Teague still managed 21 points on 8-of-17 shooting with two rebounds, seven assists, a steal and one 3-pointer.

All good things must come to an end and the Pelicans simply outplayed them tonight. Paul Millsap scored 15 points on 5-of-14 shooting with six rebounds and two blocks, Kyle Korver scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting with three boards and two threes, and Al Horford posted eight points with nine rebounds, four assists and three steals in the loss.
Feb 3 - 1:18 AM

Jeff Teague scored 17 points in a 105-99 win over the Blazers on Friday, adding seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

The Hawks have won 18 games in a row and are 32-2 since Thanksgiving. They will take on the 76ers on Saturday, the Pelicans on Monday, the Wizards on Wednesday, and then the Warriors on Friday in what's shaping up to be the best game of the season. As for Teague, he's a top-10 fantasy guard and his owners can enjoy the ride.
Jan 30 - 10:14 PM

Jeff Teague, Kyrie Irving, Dwyane Wade (hamstring), Chris Bosh, Al Horford, Jimmy Butler and Paul Millsap were named as the Eastern Conference All-Star Reserves.

It would appear Wade is not going to play with his hamstring strain, so that should allow either Kyle Korver or Brandon Knight to replace him. Nikola Vucevic is probably the first big man to be considered as a snub and his numbers are certainly better than guys like Chris Bosh.
Jan 29 - 7:21 PM

Jeff Teague hit 6-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 17 points, three rebounds, 11 assists and two steals in Wednesday's easy win over the Pacers.

The Hawks are now 28-2 over their last 30 games and coach Mike Budenholzer clinched the Eastern All-Star coaching job with tonight's win. And it would be almost shocking if he doesn't take Jeff Teague and Al Horford (and maybe Kyle Korver) with him as coach's picks.
