Teague, who turned his left ankle on Wednesday, yet returned to score nine fourth-quarter points, decided he could not go as his ankle remained tender.
"We will just wait and see how it goes and err on the side of caution," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said.
Teague is averaging 16.3 points and 7.0 assists in 65 games this season.
Near the end of his second NBA season,
The 21-year-old is averaging 9.7 points and 4.1 assists, but has scored in double figures in 11 of his last 12 contests, including an 18-point, five-assist outing in the Hawks' loss Sunday to the Spurs.
"He's young and we are still working on it. But at the end of the day, his confidence is something that we love and makes him," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. "The guy has a chance to be special and you don’t want to take that away from him in any way, shape or form."
This is the third time Schroder has scored over 20 points in a game and the second time he's done so in the past four games. Schroder made 7 of 14 from the field, which included going 3 of 5 from behind the arc. He made all four of his free-throw attempts.
Schroder added four assists and three rebounds.
"People are going to start learning he can shoot the ball and do a lot of things," Hawks center Al Horford said after the game, per the Associated Press.
All five Hawks starters scored in double digits, but it was Schroder who paced the offense while playing 21 minutes off the bench.
"I thought Dennis early, middle and late was a big factor," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. "He hit shots. He guarded. I thought he did a lot of things well. We needed him tonight."
Schroder also dished out four assists in the win, his team's second straight after coming out of the All-Star break with a loss. The Hawks will move ahead to face the Magic Friday.
