Hawks lose Teague with left ankle sprain

ATLANTA (AP) Jeff Teague left the Hawks' game against San Antonio on Friday night with a left ankle sprain.

Teague, who hurt his ankle when he came down on Tim Duncan's foot, limped off the court late in the second period.

The Hawks said Teague would not return to the game. There was no other immediate update on the severity of the injury.

Even with Teague, the Hawks had only 10 players in uniform. They played their first game after losing center Pero Antic for two to four weeks with a stress fracture in his right ankle. Antic had been the replacement for Al Horford, who was lost for the season when he tore his right pectoral muscle on Dec. 26.

Forward DeMarre Carroll was held out with a mild strain to his left hamstring.
