Jeff Teague (finger) shot 6-of-14 from the field for 17 points on Wednesday, going 3-of-5 from deep with seven assists, four rebounds and one turnover in 37 minutes.
Teague dislocated his pinkie finger during Game 4 but returned after having it re-set, and there was never any doubt about his status tonight. He quietly put up top-60 value in his first season with the Wolves and should stick in that range next season -- Teague will earn a guaranteed $19.0 million and the Wolves' core is almost entirely under contract for 2018-19, so we're not expecting drastic shifts in fantasy value.

Jeff Teague went through shootaround on Wednesday and is expected to play against the Rockets.

He dislocated his finger in Game 4 and was able to return, but coach Tom Thibodeau said it Teague is doing better. "[The injury is] a weird sort of thing. That hurt him some, but he’s fine today," Thibodeau said. Teague will be in the lineup today, but he may not be 100 percent. Derrick Rose is a chalky punt play today.

Jeff Teague (dislocated finger) is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's Game 5 in Houston.

Teague hurt his finger during Monday's Game 4 loss, but he was available to return, and there was never much doubt about his availability for tomorrow's game. We'll have official confirmation on his status closer to Wednesday's tip.
Apr 24 - 6:10 PM

Jeff Teague hit just 1-of-7 shots or two points, one rebound, five assists and nothing else in Monday's 119-100 loss to the Rockets.

He suffered a jammed finger during the game and while he was able to return, he wasn't really needed after the Rockets outscored the Rockets 50-20 in the third quarter. Teague might be a little iffy for Wednesday's Game 5, but our guess is he'll be in the starting lineup. Just be prepared to make sure he's good to go if you plan on using him. Teague was a massive fantasy disappointment tonight after going for 23 points, eight assists and three 3-pointers in Game 3.

Jeff Teague (jammed finger) will return to Game 4 on Monday.

He went back to the locker room for a few minutes, but returned with his right pinky finger taped up. Teague should be good to go the rest of the evening.

Jeff Teague left Monday's Game 4 with an apparent hand injury and went back to the locker room.

He was holding his right hand in a lot of pain and briefly chatted with the team trainer before heading to the back. We'll have an update shortly, but we could see a lot of Derrick Rose if Teague's injury keeps him out.
Apr 23 - 8:33 PM

Jeff Teague committed three fouls in the first quarter of Sunday's Game 1 loss, but he still racked up 15 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in 29 minutes.

Teague made 4-of-9 FGs and 6-of-7 FTs with one steal, one block and one 3-pointer, satisfying anyone who deployed him in DFS or a fantasy-playoff league. Before the game, Teague said the Wolves "have to push the ball and try to get some easy scores ... and we’re going to have to make some shots." They finished with only 10 fastbreak points, while shooting 43.8% from the field, yet they still had a chance to tie it up on the final possession. The Wolves will need a big series from Teague to upset the No. 1 seed Rockets.

Jeff Teague ended up with a game-high 25 points in Friday's 113-96 road victory against the Lakers.

Teague was sharp, hitting 9-of-16 from the field, including 2-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, and he was a perfect 5-of-5 from the free-throw stripe. He also chipped in with eight assists, four rebounds and two steals and did not show any ill effects from his pesky knee ailment.
Apr 7 - 1:36 AM

Jeff Teague (knee) is available to play on Friday against the Lakers.

He was called probable and he did play 36 minutes on Thursday, so Teague should be all set. Derrick Rose is also available.
Apr 6 - 9:38 PM

Jeff Teague (knee) is probable for Friday against the Lakers.

Teague played 36 minutes on Thursday, but the Wolves really can't lose this game. Teague should be in the starting lineup today.
Apr 6 - 3:42 PM

Jeff Teague (knee) scored 15 points with three rebounds, six assists and two turnovers in 36 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

He had arguably the most costly play with a turnover as he passed it to Jamal Crawford and it went out of bounds. Teague didn't seem to be affected by his knee injury with more shots and minutes than his season average. Keep an eye on him in a back-to-back set for Friday, but obviously the Wolves need a win.
Apr 6 - 1:12 AM

Jeff Teague (knee) will rejoin the Wolves starting lineup Thursday vs. Nuggets

Teague ends up missing just one game due to the knee issue. This is an important game for the Wolves, so having their starting PG back in the mix certainly helps. Tyus Jones will be bumped back to the bench.
Apr 5 - 10:00 PM

Coach Tom Thibodeau said he expected Jeff Teague (knee) to play against the Nuggets on Thursday.

This is a huge game for the Wolves and they'll need Teague to play well, especially if Jimmy Butler can't go. If Teague is limited, Tyus Jones would likely be looking at more run along with Jamal Crawford. We should have an official word in an hour or so.
Apr 5 - 9:06 PM

Jeff Teague (sore knee) is questionable to play Thursday against the Nuggets.

Teague wasn't able to take contact at Tuesday's practice, but we'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at Thursday's shootaround. If he's out again, Tyus Jones will draw another start, and he'll be someone to think about as a streamer. We should get another update by Thursday afternoon at the latest.
Apr 4 - 6:39 PM

Jeff Teague (sore knee) did not take contact at Tuesday's practice.

The extent to which Teague was able to participate isn't all that clear at this point, but him still not being able to take contact isn't a great sign regarding his status for Thursday's game in Denver. If he's forced to sit again, Tyus Jones will earn another start and he'll be a very attractive streamer. Stay tuned.
