Jeff Teague tweaked his left ankle in the first quarter on Thursday and did return, finishing with 11 points, one rebound, five assists and four turnovers in 25 minutes.
He couldn't really shake his left ankle issue and had to go to the locker room a couple times. Teague will have a few days off before he gets Kyrie Irving on Monday, but he might not need it anyway because it looks minor. The former All-Star will be one of the most important players in the entire second round. Apr 28 - 10:57 PM

Jeff Teague (left ankle) went to the locker room to be re-taped and has returned

This is the same left ankle that caused him problems for most of the season. He played for a few minutes, went to the bench, came back out to play, and went to the locker room after all that. Teague has suffered a couple minor tweaks before and usually goes to the locker room right away, so this one is very minor. He'll be back on the court soon.
Apr 28 - 8:34 PM

Jeff Teague shot just 4-of-18 from the field during Sunday's Game 4 defeat, finishing with 13 points, five assists, two rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

Teague hit a pair of crucial 3-pointers late in the fourth but he also orchestrated an awful final possession -- Atlanta had the ball with a chance to win in regulation, but Teague didn't pass and wound up getting blocked on a 3-point attempt. Dennis Schroder shot just 3-of-13 tonight, providing a bleak counter-point to the strong play of Boston's lead guards.
Apr 24 - 9:17 PM

Jeff Teague scored a team-high 23 points during a 111-103 loss to the Celtics on Friday, adding two rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and four turnovers.

The Hawks pulled off a comeback when they were down 20 points in the first half, but there was just too much Isaiah Thomas down the stretch. Teague has been effective in two of the three games with more playing time than in the regular season. He should have another chance at a big game on Sunday. Of course, his defense will have to be better.
Apr 22 - 11:04 PM

Jeff Teague scored 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting with six assists, one board, one block, two steals and one 3-pointer in Game 2 vs. the Celtics on Tuesday.

The game got out of hand pretty quickly, so Teague only played 27 minutes tonight. He had 23 points with 12 assists in Game 1 and it's clear that the Celtics are going to have a tough time keeping him in check with Avery Bradley (hamstring) on the shelf. Teague will continue to be an excellent option as this series shifts to Boston for Game 3 and Game 4. Dennis Schroder did leave the game late with an ankle issue, so Teague could be looking at a few more minutes moving forward as well.
Apr 19 - 10:02 PM

Jeff Teague scored 23 points during a 102-101 win over the Celtics on Saturday, adding four rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and two turnovers in 36 minutes.

It was his third game with at least 20 points and 10 dimes in the postseason during his career. Teague was a maestro in transition during this game to help hold off the Celtics' furious comeback. Teague played just 28.5 minutes per game during the regular season, so expect minutes in the mid-30s the rest of the way. Plus, the loss of Avery Bradley (hamstring) should make it easier on Teague to score.
Apr 16 - 11:00 PM

Jeff Teague scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting in a 109-98 loss to the Wizards on Wednesday.

He added five assists, two boards, two steals, two 3-pointers and five turnovers. It wasn't a great game from Teague, but he was on fire in his previous 10 games with averages of 19.9 points, 6.6 assists, 3.0 boards and 0.9 steals. He gets a fun matchup vs. Isaiah Thomas the Celtics in the first round of the playoffs. Dennis Schroder added 11 points, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer for the Hawks.
Apr 13 - 11:34 PM

Mike Budenholzer said that he'll be playing his regular starters their usual minutes during Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Wizards.

Well, at least one coach is going to put his usual studs on the floor for Wednesday's finale. Owners of Jeff Teague, Kent Bazemore, Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap and Al Horford can go ahead and deploy those guys with confidence.

Mike Budenholzer could rest some of his starters for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Wizards.

Given the way things have been going, it would be surprising if Budonholzer didn't give at least some of his guys the night off for a very winnable game against Washington. Owners of Jeff Teague, Al Horford, Paul Millsap and Kyle Korver will want to confirm their status prior to Wednesday's tip. Dennis Schroder could be in for a nice game with a favorable matchup and tons of opportunity as one of the main guys on offense if Budenholzer does indeed rest his studs.

Jeff Teague scored 21 points against the Cavs on Monday with nine assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

That's five straight games with at least 20 points, averaging 23.2 points, 2.2 boards, 6.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.2 treys on 51.2 percent from the field. Teague didn't quite follow up a big-time 2014-15 season, but he still managed top-60 value since the break in standard leagues.
Apr 11 - 10:10 PM

Jeff Teague scored 24 points during a win over the Celtics on Saturday with five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

Dennis Schroder was very good with 15 points and seven dimes, so the point guards took care of business. Teague has been the man and scored at least 20 points in four straight, averaging 23.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.5 treys on 47.5 percent from the field and 90.5 percent from the line. He's playing his best ball at the right time.
Apr 9 - 10:38 PM

Jeff Teague scored 28 points on 9-of-23 shooting Friday, to go with nine assists, four rebounds, two 3-pointers, two steals, two blocks and two turnovers in 38 minutes.

Teague played some excellent defense against Kyrie Irving, holding him to 5-of-23 shooting, and he was no slouch on offense either, as he was knocking down big time shots all night long. Teague nearly powered the Hawks to a comeback win, and he posted a hefty 35.9 usage rate during the second-half. Look for Teague to keep his momentum going into Tuesday's game against the Suns.
Apr 2 - 2:23 AM

Jeff Teague followed up Monday's 26-point effort with another strong game vs. the Raptors, scoring 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting with one 3-pointer, two rebounds and three assists.

Teague has been a mild disappointment over the past month -- he's averaging 15.5 points, 1.6 threes, 3.1 rebounds, 7.5 assists and 0.8 steals, but lousy 39.7 percent shooting takes a big chunk out of his value. He played just 22 minutes tonight because the Hawks were trounced in the first three quarters, and his owners should still be satisfied with the improved efficiency.
Mar 30 - 10:13 PM

Jeff Teague scored 26 points against the Bulls during a 102-100 win on Monday, adding six rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers.

Revenge game for trading his brother Marquis back in 2014? Kidding aside, Teague's minutes are really on the rise over his last five, averaging 30.8 minutes, 17.6 points, 4.0 boards, 7.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.4 treys. He's not expected to be rested, so keep him rolling.
Mar 28 - 11:38 PM

Jeff Teague was solid vs. the Wizards on Monday with 23 points on 7-of-17 shooting with four assists, three boards, one steal and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

Teague was coming off a five-point dud on Saturday vs. the Rockets, but he got back on track tonight despite the fact that the Hawks lost. He's averaging 14.4 points, 7.4 assists, 2.4 boards, 0.8 steals and 1.6 3-pointers over his last five games and should have a strong finish to the season as the Hawks battle for playoff seeding.
