Atlanta's Jeff Teague suffered a left ankle injury in the third quarter of Atlanta's 107-101 win over the Detroit Pistons Friday night and did not return to the game.

Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague injured his left ankle on a drive during the third quarter of Atlanta's 107-101 overtime win Friday night against the Detroit Pistons. Teague rolled his ankle when he landed on the foot of the Pistons' Greg Monroe midway through the third quarter.

Teague initially went to the locker room and later returned to the bench area. At some point he returned to the locker room and was ruled out for the game. The Hawks didn't have any updates on Teague after the game so his status will likely be updated before Sunday's game in New Orleans.

With Teague down, Kirk Hinrich played the remainder of the game even though he is clearly not in shape and was playing in only his second game since returning from a shoulder injury. Teague played just 21 minutes and finished with two points and three assists. Hinrich finished with five points and nine assists off the bench for the Hawks.
