Jeff Teague had one of his worst games in a long time during a Game 3 loss to the Nets on Saturday, making 4-of-13 from the field for 12 points with three rebounds, six assists, three steals and four turnovers.
This was not a great game from the ATL point guards with Dennis Schroder also scoring just three points on 1-of-9 from the field with two assists and two turnovers. Teague was extremely sloppy and the ball slipped out of his hands numerous times. He'll need to play better if the Hawks want to make a run. Apr 25 - 5:40 PM

Jeff Teague scored the Hawks' final six points on Sunday to finish with 17 points (6-of-12 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), one 3-pointer, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes.

Teague's clutch play helped the Hawks hang on for the series lead with a 99-92 home win. The Hawks finished the season ranked No. 6 in offensive efficiency (106.2) and No. 7 in defensive efficiency (100.7), part of the reason they're overwhelming favorites to make it to the second round. One area they'd like to clean up is turnovers, however, as Teague and backup Dennis Schroder combined for eight turnovers and only five assists on Sunday.

The Hawks will begin Wednesday's game with a typical lineup of Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll, Paul Millsap and Al Horford.

Mike Budenholzer is likely to hold their minutes in check, but this at least gives Atlanta one game to keep their rhythm going into the postseason. Teague has looked good since recovering from an ankle injury in late March, Millsap is returning from a shoulder ailment, and the Hawks are healthy with the exceptions of Mike Scott (back), Pero Antic (illness) and Thabo Sefolosha (leg).

Jeff Teague (rest) returned to action on Monday, scoring 19 points on 7-of-17 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 34 minutes.

Teague had an ankle issue a few weeks ago and that might make him more predisposed to rest in Wednesday's finale, but owners simply have to cross their fingers and hope that's not the case.
Apr 14 - 3:27 AM

Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll, Paul Millsap (shoulder) and Al Horford will all be rested vs. the Wizards on Sunday.

Millsap was already ruled out with a shoulder injury but it's a precautionary rest day for the other four starters. With Thabo Sefolosha (leg) also out of commission, there will be plenty of minutes available for Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore, Shelvin Mack, Mike Scott, Mike Muscala and Pero Antic. We're considering the Hawks' starters questionable for Monday's game vs. the lowly Knicks, though Mike Budenholzer suggested he'll return to his normal rotation.

Jeff Teague hit just 4-of-11 shots and didn't make a 3-pointer, but still finished with 15 points, six rebounds, 12 assists, four steals and a block in 33 minutes of Wednesday's win over the Nets.

After struggling offensively for a few games, Teague has now scored 15, 16 and 17 points in each of his last three games. As long as he's playing for the Hawks, he should be in your lineup.
Apr 8 - 10:59 PM

The Hawks will start Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll, Kyle Korver, Al Horford and Mike Muscala against the Nets on Wednesday.

It's the second game of a back-to-back and it's in Brooklyn, so this is an unusual move for the Hawks. Fantasy owners can start them like they normally would.
Apr 8 - 6:28 PM

Jeff Teague started Tuesday's game and had 16 points (6-of-13 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), one 3-pointer, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in only 25 minutes of action.

Teague's ankle injury isn't limiting him and he's rounded into form over the past three games with averages of 14.0 points on 56.3 percent shooting, 1.0 triples, 2.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.3 steals. Mike Budenholzer has been tight-lipped about any potential rest days for his veterans down the stretch, and Teague's owners will have to check back daily to confirm his status.
Apr 7 - 10:09 PM

The Hawks will not be resting anyone for Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets.

If you're an owner of Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll, or Al Horford, go ahead and get those guys on your active roster. Paul Millsap (shoulder) is out tonight, and Mike Muscala will take his place in the starting unit. Dennis Schroder (toe) is also expected to return to the rotation.

Jeff Teague (ankle) started Tuesday's game as usual, finishing a road loss in Detroit with nine points, one 3-pointer, one rebound, four assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

Teague's recent ankle injury didn't seem to bother him but owners can still anticipate a few more DNP-CDs down the stretch. The Hawks have clinched the Eastern Conference and Teague takes plenty of abuse, ranking fourth in the NBA in total drives (747), so additional rest makes sense for a variety of reasons. Plan accordingly.
Mar 31 - 10:03 PM

The Hawks will go with their regular starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. Detroit.

Those that made a speculative add of Shelvin Mack under the assumption that Jeff Teague would be rested for this one should probably look elsewhere for production. It'll be Teague, Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll, Paul Millsap, and Al Horford in the starting lineup tonight, so go ahead and get those guys active.

Jeff Teague had a sub-par return from an ankle sprain in 29 minutes against the Bucks on Monday, making 2-of-8 from the field for eight points with four rebounds, nine assists, two 3-pointers and five turnovers.

He is almost certainly going to rest on Tuesday, so his fantasy owners should plan for him not to play. Dennis Schroder (toe) is also out, so Shelvin Mack should see significant minutes. Teague isn't must-own player with all the games he's going to miss moving forward.
Mar 31 - 1:08 AM

Jeff Teague will start against the Bucks on Monday night.

He is almost a lock to sit tomorrow on the road, but it's great to see he's back for tonight. Teague is going to sit multiple games going forward, so Dennis Schroder should be owned in all leagues.
Mar 30 - 6:48 PM

Jeff Teague (ankle) and the remainder of the Hawks starters are expected to play on Monday against the Bucks.

However, "more rest" is expected on Tuesday, and that should have been obvious considering the Hawks have clinched the No. 1 seed and are on a back-to-back set. After Tuesday's road game against the Pistons, the Hawks are off until Saturday, so those relying on Atlanta for fantasy contributions while fighting for their lives may want to look elsewhere.

Jeff Teague said on Saturday he's been using biowave on his ankle.

The treatment sends an electrical signal to the joint. It's a little discouraging to hear that Teague is having any kind of treatment on his ankle, so he's likely going to miss more games going forward. If you are in desperation mode, Teague isn't a must-own player because the Hawks are going to rest him a lot.
