Jeff Teague (illness) started as usual on Sunday, putting up four points, five rebounds, eight assists and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.
With Tyus Jones (ankle) unavailable there are more minutes for Teague, Derrick Rose and Jerryd Bayless, though it sounds like Jones could be back soon after his walking boot is removed. Teague was also a DNP in the fourth quarter of a close game tonight, with Bayless playing all but one minute, so that's a situation to watch -- it's possible it was due to the illness.

Jeff Teague (illness) will start Sunday's game vs. Phoenix.

He was a late addition to the injury report but there's no mention of a minute-limit, so owners should feel free to keep him locked into active lineups.
Jan 20 - 6:27 PM

Jeff Teague (illness) is now questionable to play vs. Phoenix on Sunday.

It's not a late tip-off tonight, either, so this could be a game-time decision. Tyus Jones (ankle) is already out, so if Teague can't go Derrick Rose would be busy as a playmaker and Jerryd Bayless would also step up in the rotation.

Jeff Teague scored 15 points with two rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

He should get a longer leash in the first unit with Tyus Jones (ankle) out for multiple games. Jones has better net ratings with the starters, so this next week-plus for Teague will be big for him. He should be owned in standard leagues and could pay dividends after a slow start to the season.
Jan 18 - 11:17 PM

Jeff Teague (left ankle) played 26 minutes vs. the 76ers on Tuesday, scoring 11 points with two assists, one rebound, two steals and three turnovers.

The 76ers won by a whopping 42 points, so there aren't any real takeaways here. If anything, Teague's floor should be slightly higher in the short term with more minutes coming his way, as Tyus Jones left this game with a high ankle sprain. Since returning from his ankle injury, Teague has been a top-90 player in standard leagues over a six-game stretch, but he has plenty of room to grow.

Jeff Teague (left ankle) will play on Tuesday against the 76ers.

He was randomly labeled a game-time call this morning, but he never actually hit the injury report and was a full participant at Monday's practice, so he shouldn't have any limitations tonight. Joining him in the starting five will be Josh Okogie, Andrew Wiggins, Taj Gibson and Karl-Anthony Towns. Go ahead and get him active.
Jan 15 - 6:32 PM

Jeff Teague (left ankle) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game vs. the Sixers.

Teague tweaked his ankle Saturday night; however, he was able to practice on Monday and participate in shootaround on Tuesday. Nonetheless, it appears we won't have confirmation on his status until this evening. Derrick Rose (right ankle) is questionable to play on Tuesday. If either Teague or Rose is unable to suit up, Tyus Jones would see a significant increase in playing time and would be a popular streaming/DFS option
Jan 15 - 11:24 AM

Jeff Teague (left ankle) practiced on Monday and he's not being listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game in Philadelphia.

Teague tweaked his ankle during Saturday's game, but the fact that he was able to get in a full practice today is a very encouraging sign regarding his status for Tuesday's game. We should get another update following shootaround, but for now, it looks like owners can plan on having him available.
Jan 14 - 3:34 PM

Coach Ryan Saunders said Jeff Teague aggravated his left ankle injury on Saturday.

It looked like this happened at the end of the first half, but Teague was able to start the third quarter. However, Saunders said Teague's ankle was the reason he went with Tyus Jones down the stretch over Teague in a win. Teague missed nine games with this ankle issue, so he's probably going to miss at least a game with this news. Jones was outstanding last night and has been one of the more underrated players in the league, so he makes sense as a speculative add in 12-team leagues.
Jan 13 - 10:26 AM

Jeff Teague played just 22 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday with two points, one rebound, 10 assists and one turnover.

He may have suffered an ankle tweak at the end of the first half, but he did return to start the third quarter. Teague's left ankle inflammation cost him nine games earlier this season, and he was talking to the trainer late in the game when Tyus Jones was playing lights out in the closing role. There could be some concern that Teague could miss time, so his owners should be picking up Tyus Jones right now as insurance.
Jan 12 - 11:05 PM

Jeff Teague was ejected from Tuesday's game vs. the Thunder with two technicals.

He will leave this game midway through the third quarter, finishing with eight points, five assists, five steals, two rebounds and one 3-pointer. He picked up his second tech for shoving Dennis Schroder in the back, but at least his fantasy owners don't have to worry about a suspension.
Jan 8 - 9:54 PM

In his second game back from an ankle injury, Jeff Teague notched 15 points, 11 assists, six rebounds, three 3-pointers and two steals in 29 minutes.

Teague has dished out 10+ assists in five straight games (excluding his DNPs) which is the longest streak of his career. Even better, the extended rest seems to have returned his confidence as a shooter. He shot 38.0% in the second games prior to being shut down, but is 14-of-23 in the past two games. He's quickly validating owners' decision to stash him.
Jan 6 - 7:04 PM

Jeff Teague (ankle) returned to action with a bang in a 120-103 win over the Magic on Friday, scoring 23 points with 10 assists, two rebounds, one steal and three triples.

Making his first appearance since Dec. 15, Teague finished 8-of-10 from the field with two turnovers, and he got some extra rest because of the blowout with 28 minutes. Teague has been a 9th-round player in standard leagues in per-game value, but a big chunk of that was with Jimmy Butler. If he can stay healthy, we like his chances of moving into the middle rounds quite comfortably.
Jan 5 - 12:19 AM

Jeff Teague (left ankle inflammation) will return to game action and will start Friday night vs. the Magic.

Teague has been sidelined since December 15th, missing each of the Wolves past nine games. However, he'll finally be back in action on Friday in a plus matchup vs. the Magic. Go scoop him up if he was dropped in your league. Derrick Rose (sprained right ankle) is doubtful for Friday's game against Orlando. Assuming Rose is ruled out, Tyus Jones will serve as the primary backup behind Teague at PG.
Jan 4 - 12:11 PM

Jeff Teague (left ankle inflammation) is questionable vs. the Magic on Friday.

Teague was also questionable on Wednesday but he was quickly ruled out after shootaround, so nothing is a given. At the very least, Teague is just day-to-day and shouldn't be on the waiver wire anywhere -- he was consistently dropping double-digit assists prior to getting hurt.
