Jeff Teague said he would like to re-sign with the Pacers this summer.
The 28-year-old PG will be an unrestricted free agent and should be able to command a nice raise. "I love Indiana," Teague said. "You all know me, born and raised, tattoos on my arm. I’ve wanted to play for the Pacers my whole life. It’s a great opportunity for me and I love to be here." Sticking around in Indiana would be great for his fantasy value, as he was a top-45 standard league asset with averages of 15.3 points, 7.8 assists, 1.1 triples, 1.2 steals and 2.6 turnovers per game on 44.2 percent shooting this season.

Jeff Teague double-doubled during the Pacers' Game 4 loss to the Cavs, recording 15 points, 10 assists, four rebounds, one 3-pointer, two steals, three blocks and three turnovers in 39 minutes.

Teague put himself in a position to take home a pretty nice payday this offseason as an unrestricted free agent after compiling averages of 15.3 points, 7.8 assists, 1.1 triples, 1.2 steals and just 2.6 turnovers per contest on 44.2 percent shooting during his first season in Indiana. It’ll be interesting to see where he winds up, but if he opts to re-sign with the Pacers, he’ll make for a safe mid-round pick in next year’s drafts.

Jeff Teague played 33 minutes with 15 points, three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and four 3-pointers against the Cavs in Game 3 on Thursday.

Coach Nate McMillan may have waited too long to put Teague back into the game and the Pacers went without a PG at times in the fourth. Teague had a costly turnover late in the game, but he wasn't at the top of the blame-game list for this terrible home loss. He'll probably get minutes in the mid 30s again, especially since his wrist injury looked like a non-issue.

Jeff Teague (wrist) is not on the injury report for Game 3 on Thursday.

Coach Nate McMillan said Teague will be "ready to go" n Wednesday, so it's good to hear he's ready to roll before warmups. Teague's shooting wrist could impede his jumper, but he was terrific in Game 2 with an 8-of-12 shooting line. Expect Teague to be the second or third option in a favorable matchup against Kyrie Irving.

Pacers' head coach Nate McMillan said that Jeff Teague (right wrist) will be "ready to go" for Thursday's Game 3 against the Cavs.

Teague's right wrist was clearly bothering him during Monday's Game 2 loss, but he played through it, and it looks like that trend will continue on Thursday night. Check back for official confirmation following Thursday morning's shootaround.
Apr 19 - 1:46 PM

Jeff Teague tweaked his right wrist in Monday's Game 2 loss to Cleveland, but still managed to score 23 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and two triples in 35 minutes.

He took a hard fall and was grimacing for multiple possessions, but he was able to stay in the game and it didn't look like an issue in the fourth quarter. However, he's going to undergo X-rays on his wrist and we could get another update tonight or early Tuesday morning. He finished 8-of-12 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line and bounced back nicely after his poor shooting performance in Game 1, but he was torched by Kyrie Irving on defense tonight. He will have a few days to rest up his wrist before Game 3 on Thursday.
Apr 17 - 10:05 PM

Jeff Teague made 3-of-10 from the field for 15 points with two rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

It was obvious the Cavs were going right at Teague as a defender. They were running 3-1 pick-and-roll plays with Kyrie Irving as a screener to get Teague on LeBron James, so we'll let you imagine the rest. Teague is still too good to take off the court, so the Pacers should just focus on how to avoid making so many switches. He also fared well against the Cavs on the season series, averaging 18.5 points, 11.0 assists and 2.8 treys in his four regular-season games. He should be better in Game 2.
Apr 15 - 5:51 PM

Coach Nate McMillan said that Jeff Teague (ankle) is "good to go" for Game 1 on Saturday vs. the Cavs.

Teague rolled his ankle in the fourth quarter of the Pacers' season finale on Wednesday and was forced to the locker room. Fortunately, it appears the injury was minor. Teague averaged 15.3 points, 7.8 assists and 1.2 steals this season for Indiana. He will have his hands full on Saturday trying to contain Kyrie Irving. Daily Slant: Cleveland allowed the fourth-most assists per game (25.4) after the break. Teague assists on 36.4% of his teammate’s field goals when he’s on the floor, which was the ninth-best rate in the NBA this season. There is obvious upside here and Teague has already taken advantage of the Cavs – in each of the last three games they’ve faced each other, he accounted for 11 or more assists. In terms of overall fantasy production, he’s scored at least 38 DK points in all four meetings this year, topped 40 three times, and peaked at 54.25.

Jeff Teague (ankle) went to the locker room in the fourth quarter on Wednesday.

He lost his footing and turned his left ankle, but he didn't have too much weight on his leg. Teague's ankles have been a problem for him throughout his career, so hopefully he'll be ready for Game 1 against the Cavs. If not, there should be plenty of Aaron Brooks. Teague finished with 19 points, seven assists and one 3-pointer. For what it's worth, he did not have tape on his ankle after the game, so this is likely minor.
Apr 12 - 10:24 PM

Jeff Teague scored 19 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in Friday's loss to the Raptors.

He bounced back from a four-point dud against the Grizzlies and has been above his season scoring average in his six previous games before that. Teague came in with solid March averages before this one, averaging 14.1 points, 4.1 boards, 6.7 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.3 treys. With the Pacers fighting for their playoff lives, he'll get some big minutes down the stretch.
Mar 31 - 9:37 PM

Jeff Teague played just 20 minutes on Wednesday, going 2-of-6 from the field for four points, five assists, one rebound and one turnover.

Mike Conley ran wild offensively to open the game and Teague seemed to shrink into himself after that onslaught -- he never found a rhythm offensively, and was outplayed by backup Aaron Brooks. As disappointing as this is for Teague's owners, he's still primed for a bounce-back effort vs. Cory Joseph and the Raptors on Friday.
Mar 30 - 12:32 AM

Jeff Teague hit 6-of-12 shots and 8-of-9 free throws for 20 points, 10 assists and a steal in Tuesday's 115-114 loss to Minnesota.

Teague didn't hit a 3-pointer or block a shot, but no one is going to complain about this line. The Pacers are in a playoff dogfight right now and Teague is averaging 20.6 points, 6.8 assists and 2.2 3-pointers on 53 percent shooting over his last five games. He's going to play every night and should be started with confidence the rest of the way.
Mar 28 - 10:30 PM

Jeff Teague led the way with a team-high 21 points, five assists, five rebounds, a steal and a blocked shots over 37 minutes Monday against the Jazz.

Teague hit three of his four attempts from behind the arc and was a perfect 6-of-6 from the free throw stripe, too. He struggled from the floor last week, but it appears whatever was bothering him is in the rear-view mirror, as he is averaging 18.5 points, 6.0 assists and 2.0 3-pointers over his past two outings.
Mar 20 - 10:41 PM

Jeff Teague posted eight points, eight rebounds and 11 assists in 30 minutes vs. Charlotte on Wednesday.

The Pacers had fewer than 20 assists in each of their previous three games, but they racked up 26 dimes tonight thanks largely to Teague's table-setting. This was his first double-digit assist game in over three weeks, so hopefully he can keep it going in a back-to-back set on Sunday and Monday.
Mar 15 - 10:29 PM

Jeff Teague scored just nine points on 4-of-15 shooting vs. the Knicks on Tuesday.

He hit 1-of-6 triples and missed his only free throw, adding eight rebounds, six assists and seven turnovers in 32 minutes. Teague has been struggling with his shot since February and is shot 39.4 percent from the field in his previous 10 games, but his fantasy owners have no choice but to stick with him at this point in the season. The Hornets have struggled to contain point guards this season, so maybe Teague can get it going on Wednesday.
