Teague recorded 14 points (6-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists, one rebound, one block and one steal across 27 minutes in Thursday's 132-125 home win over Toronto.
Teague has scored 10 or more points seven times this season. Thursday was his most efficient shooting effort of the season, as it was the first time he did not miss multiple field-goal attempts. Teague will occasionally supply adequate fantasy value despite being Boston's tertiary point guard (behind Kemba Walker and Payton Pritchard).
Teague went for 14 points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal in 29 minutes as the Celtics fell to the Hawks 127-112 Wednesday.
Starting in place of Kemba Walker (rest), Teague turned in his most complete performance of the season. His five assists were tops for the season while his five rebounds tied a season best. That said, with Walker coming back Friday and Teague having appeared in only three of the last nine games, his fantasy value is virtually nonexistent.
Teague will start Wednesday's game against the Hawks.
With Kemba Walker (rest) out, Teague will get his fourth start of the season. In his previous three starts, the veteran has averaged 9.3 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.3 steals in 21.7 minutes.
Teague has played just 34 minutes across the last six games.
Teague has been a DNP-CD in three of the Celtics' past six games, and he's played single-digit minutes in two of the remaining three. It appears coach Brad Stevens has lost trust in the veteran and would rather give minutes to rookies Payton Pritchard and Aaron Nesmith.
Teague generated 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt), one rebound and one steal over 18 minutes in Sunday's 100-91 loss to the Suns.
Teague returned to the bench in Friday's win over the Clippers but was held scoreless. He remained in a depth role Sunday, but he was much more productive on the scoreboard against Phoenix. He was perfect on his two attempts from beyond the arc and was one of three bench players to score in double figures in the loss to the Suns.
Teague will get the start at point guard for the Celtics in Wednesday's game against the Kings, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
With both Kemba Walker and Payton Pritchard out of the lineup, Teague should handle the bulk of the point guard duties for the Celtics. Despite his recent struggles, he's averaging 6.0 points and 2.3 assists across 18.1 minutes per game. He'll have an opportunity to improve those numbers Wednesday.
Teague posted zero points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound, one assist and one block over eight minutes in Wednesday's loss at San Antonio.
With Payton Pritchard (knee) out, minutes are available for Teague. But the veteran reserve is struggling. He's now been shut out, points-wise, in three of his last six games. Over that span, he's averaged 2.7 points, 2.0 assists and 1.3 rebounds while shooting a frustrating 22.2 percent from the field. Coach Brad Stevens played 13 different Celtics on Wednesday night and is clearly struggling to find a reliable bench rotation. Teague's poor play is adding to those struggles.
Teague had zero points (0-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 14 minutes during Sunday's blowout loss to the Knicks.
It was an afternoon to forget for the Celtics across the board, as the team had only 50 points through three quarters Sunday. Teague has put up double-digit points three times this season and is shooting 47.4 percent from deep, but his overall struggles from the field (33.8 percent) limit his outlook while averaging 19.6 minutes.
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.
Teague (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Heat, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.
Marcus Smart (thumb) is back, which helps make up for the loss of Teague. Still, with Teague sidelined, Payton Pritchard should continue seeing plenty of run.
Teague (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Heat, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.
The sprained left ankle has Teague's status in doubt for Wednesday after he missed his first game of the season during Monday's win over the Raptors. If the veteran point guard has to miss his second game in a row, Payton Pritchard and Tremont Waters would benefit.
Teague (ankle) will not play in Monday's game against Toronto.
This is not too surprising considering Teague sprained his left ankle during Sunday's win over the Pistons and was unable to return to the game. It's unclear if the veteran will miss multiple games, but the Celtics will play it safe on the second half of a back-to-back. Expect rookie Payton Pritchard, who played a career-high 28 minutes Sunday, to pick up some more run Monday night.
Teague sprained his left ankle in Sunday's game against the Pistons and will not return.
The veteran played 17 minutes off the bench before exiting, and he finished with two points, three rebounds and two assists. It wouldn't be a surprise if Teague is held out of Monday's game in Toronto on the second night of a road-road back-to-back.
Teague scored 12 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3PT, 3-4 FT) to go along with one rebound, three assists and two steals across 20 minutes in Friday's loss to the Pistons.
Teague's role remains stable, as he's played between 19 and 22 minutes in each of his last five games. As a result, he hasn't poured in points and has reached double digits only twice this season. Notably, however, Teague has averaged 2.0 steals per game to make solid contributions on the defensive side of the floor.
Teague is in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Grizzlies.
The 32-year-old will join the starting five for Wednesday's contest with Tristian Thompson (hamstring) unavailable. Teague is averaging 8.5 points, 2.5 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 21.8 minutes off the bench through the first four games of the season.
Teague amassed nine points (0-6 FG, 9-10 FT), three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 22 minutes during Sunday's 108-107 loss to the Pacers.
After a hot start to the season, Teague has regressed back to what we thought he might be in his new role. His playing time appears locked into the low-20's, a number that is typically insufficient when it comes to standard league production. While his value is limited, Teague remains a possible streaming option, at least until Kemba Walker (knee) returns to action.
