Jeff Teague Injury: Hawks Guard In Starting Lineup Against Hornets

Jeff Teague is in the Atlanta Hawks starting lineup against the New Orleans Hornets after suffering an ankle injury in Friday's win against the Detroit Pistons. Teague left the game in Detroit after landing on Greg Monroe's foot and went to the locker room where he had the ankle taped. He temporarily returned to the bench before the ankle stiffened up and did not return to the game.

Teague took part in Saturday's practice and Larry Drew said prior to Sunday's game that he would return to the starting lineup. If Teague experiences any issues with the ankle, then Drew will likely turn to Kirk Hinrich and Jannero Pargo as options at the point.

Teague has played in all 20 games for the Hawks this season and is averaging 12.5 points, 5.3 assists and 2.1 steals per game.
