Coach Tom Thibodeau said Teague (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Pistons, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Despite being active, Teague was held out of Monday's game against the Kings due to left ankle inflammation. While the issue doesn't appear to be anything overly serious, the Timberwolves will play it safe and give Teague the next three days to recover before potentially returning for Friday's game against the Spurs. Derrick Rose and Tyus Jones should once again benefit from Teague's absence.
Teague will be held out of Monday's game against the Kings despite being listed as active. The Timberwolves kept Teague active for the contest, but they'll keep him on the bench due to left ankle inflammation. Derrick Rose will draw the start at point guard and Tyus Jones should see an uptick in minutes off the bench with Teague on the shelf. Expect him to be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup against the Pistons.
Teague (ankle) will be available to play in Monday's game against the Kings, Kyle Ratke of the Timberwolves' official site reports. Teague has been hampered by left ankle inflammation of late, but will be able to play in Monday's game. His exact role is yet to be determined as coach Tom Thibodeau may opt to relax Teague's minutes and let Derrick Rose start. A final designation of what to expect will likely be given closer to tipoff.
Teague (ankle) will be a true game-time call for Monday's game against the Kings, Wolves radio voice Alan Horton reports. Coach Tom Thibodeau said Teague will go through a pregame workout and be reevaluated before a final decision is made. He also added that in the event Teague is held out, Derrick Rose would make the start at point guard in his place.
Teague is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Kings. The issue apparently cropped up following Saturday's loss to the Suns, leaving Teague's status murky heading into Monday's matchup. Things should clear up closer to tipoff after Teague is able to test the issue during pregame warmups. If the veteran guard is unable to play, Derrick Rose and Tyus Jones would stand to benefit the most.
