Teague had just three points (1-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), but added 18 assists, two rebounds, two blocks, and one steal in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 121-104 victory over Charlotte. Teague handed out a season-high 18 assists Wednesday, helping the Timberwolves to what ended up being a comfortable victory. The Timberwolves ended the game on a 28-to-8 run, thanks in large part to Teague's facilitating. Teague has had some ups and downs so far this season but is still playing big minutes on a nightly basis. The scoring is going to fluctuate given that he is quite often the third or fourth option on offense. Those nights, however, are usually supplemented by high assist numbers.
Teague had 14 points (4-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven assists, five rebounds, and one steal in 35 minutes during Monday's 103-91 victory over Houston. Teague continues to have a nice run of games, scoring in double-digits for the fifth time in his last six games. During that span, he is also averaging 7.0 assists and 1.0 steal per game. Those are certainly not going to win you your fantasy league but the consistency is nice and as long as he remains healthy, the playing time is clearly going to be there.
Teague scored 15 points with nine assists in 30 minutes in Saturday's win at Brooklyn despite not feeling at full strength with his previously-injured knee. "I'm probably like 75 [percent]," Teague told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "But it's all good. Everybody is dealing with something. I'm just happy to be out there, doing something I love." Teague is averaging 32.8 minutes per game (12.5 points and 8.8 assists) in the six games he's played since he missed six games with a left knee contusion, so it doesn't sound like he's very limited. Teague also said he's dealing with a sore ankle as well. Neither sounds like a major concern, but watch for any setbacks.
Teague totaled 14 points (4-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 14 assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 107-100 win over the Pelicans. Teague finished with a season high in assists while notching his second straight double-double. After missing seven consecutive games with a knee injury, Teague returned to the lineup with a sterling performance in Monday's win over the Nets, in which he compiled 24 points, 11 dimes, three steals, and one board in 35 minutes. With Derrick Rose (knee) now bothered by the injury bug, Teague could be relied on heavily once again during Friday's matchup with the Trail Blazers, especially if Rose remains sidelined.
Teague (knee) is available to play in Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. The news of Teague's availability comes alongside news that Derrick Rose (knee) will not play in Wednesday's game after being a late addition to the injury report. In Teague's return to the court Monday, he played in 34 minutes and appeared to be perfectly healthy, and he may be in line for even more minutes Wednesday with Rose sidelined. Tyus Jones will serve as the primary backup at point guard.
