Jeff Teague is planning to use the offseason in order to get his knees and ankles healthy.
It's not clear exactly what Teague is dealing with, but the point guard said that it was more than just normal wear and tear and does not expect to require surgery. With the Hawks facing a lot of uncertainty in multiple areas of the roster, Teague's fantasy outlook will be dependent upon what Atlanta does or doesn't do this offseason. It's not a lock that Teague will remain with the Hawks, either. May 9 - 12:54 PM

Jeff Teague scored just five points on 2-of-5 shooting during Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Cavs, adding two boards, two assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and three turnovers in 22 minutes.

Teague connected on just 34.1 percent of his shot attempts through Atlanta’s second-round series, to go with averages of 11.5 points, 6.5 assists, 1.0 triple and 1.5 turnovers per contest. A timeshare with Dennis Schroder hurt Teague during the 2015-16 season, as he only managed to get on the court for 28.6 minutes a night, and if Schroder isn’t dealt during the offseason it’ll be tough for Teague to establish himself as much more than a mid-round guy next year.

Jeff Teague will not be suspended for his flagrant 1 foul on LeBron James from Friday.

This is a similar scenario to the Isaiah Thomas foul with both players not getting suspended in a game their teams need to have. Teague will be ready to go and is coming off a nice stat line of 19 points and 14 assists. Expect him to get minutes in the low 30s to avoid a sweep.
May 7 - 4:21 PM

Jeff Teague handed out a playoff career-high 14 assists against the Cavs on Friday, adding 19 points, one rebound, one turnover and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

When the game was decided, Teague gave LeBron James an unnecessary shove and the league could be looking at this. His lone turnover was a costly one in the last minute of the game, so it wasn't a great finish. Teague is turning in a decent postseason, averaging 15.1 points, 2.0 boards, 5.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.8 treys in his previous eight games. He should have big minutes in Game 4, but there's always going to be risk in case Dennis Schroder takes minutes from him.
May 6 - 9:54 PM

Jeff Teague finished Wednesday's ugly defeat with 14 points (3-of-10 FGs, 8-of-9 FTs), six assists and three rebounds in 23 minutes of action.

Nearly 19 percent of Teague's offensive plays this postseason have come in isolation, higher than ball-dominant point guards like Damian Lillard, Russell Westbrook and Kyrie Irving, which probably isn't how coach Mike Budenholzer drew it up. Teague is in the 27th percentile in isolation, averaging a mere 0.75 points per possession, and he'll need to keep the ball moving for Atlanta to rally for a much-needed Game 3 victory.
May 4 - 10:42 PM

Jeff Teague scored eight points in 22 minutes against the Cavs on Monday, adding two rebounds and four assists.

He lost some run to Dennis Schroder because the German point guard shot the ball well in the first three quarters. Teague should get minutes in the upper 20s his next time out, assuming Schroder doesn't get hot again.
May 2 - 10:08 PM

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.

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.
