Teague will come off the bench Sunday against the Knicks, Celtics broadcaster Sean Grande reports. The 32-year-old started Friday and had 17 points in 21 minutes, but he'll return to the bench Sunday with Kemba Walker (knee) making his season debut. Teague should still fill his usual role off the bench for Boston.
Teague notched 17 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), two assists, two steals and a rebound across 21 minutes in Friday's win over the Magic. The Celtics have been missing several players due to the league's health and safety protocols amid their COVID-19 outbreak, and that allowed Teague to start just for the second time in the current campaign. He took advantage of the chance to post his second-best scoring output of the season, and this was also just the third time he was able to surpass the 10-point mark. He's expected to move back to the bench sooner than later, though, and his value should decrease rapidly in a backup role.
Teague is starting Friday's game against the Magic. The Celtics are without several players in their return to the court Friday, and Teague will be in the starting five for the second time this season. Over his first eight appearances this season, he's averaging 7.0 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists over 20.1 minutes per game.
Teague (ankle) is cleared to play Friday against the Wizards, Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reports. After missing two straight games, Teague will be back in action. With the Celtics missing a variety of rotation players due to COVID-19 protocols, Teague could see some extra usage, though he's yet to garner more than 25 minutes in a single contest this season.
Teague (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Wizards. Teague has missed the past two games with a sprained left ankle, but he could return Friday. That would likely mean fewer minutes for Tremont Waters.
