Jeff Teague Injury: Hawks Guard Leaves Game Vs. Bulls With Right Arm Injury But May Return

More bad news Atlanta Hawks fans, point guard Jeff Teague left the game with an apparent sprained right wrist just 53 seconds into the second quarter. 

The sensational point guard, who has been a sparkplug for Atlanta in their best-of-seven second round against the Chicago Bulls, appeared to hurt his right arm when he landed awkwardly while slashing to the hoop.

After getting helped off by the trainers, he went to the locker room for X-Rays. While the tests are still pending according to ESPN, the team expects the Teague to return. 

Obviously, Hawks fans will be sitting with baited breath until they see Teague back in the game. And with results still pending they have reason to worry.

As if they didn't  have enough to worry about right now. The Hawks are down 39-25 with 5:05 left in the second quarter. They're going to need a lot of help if they want to avoid going fishin' after this game.
