Teague traveling with Hawks to Philly; now day-to-day
ATLANTA — Hawks starting point guard Jeff Teague, who has missed the past two games with an ankle sprain, will travel with the team for its road trip on Friday at Philadelphia and is listed as day-to-day, coach Mike Budenholzer said on Thursday.
Including the game in which Teague was injured, a 105-79 loss on Friday to San Antonio, the Hawks have gone 1-2 in their past three games. However, they played very well in a 111-109 loss at Oklahoma City on Monday.
In Teague’s absence Shelvin Mack has started the past two games. Mack totaled 15 points, 7 assists and 4 assists in 31 minutes on Monday and 9 points, 4 assists and 2 steals in 24 minutes on Saturday in a 112-87 win against Milwaukee. Veteran Lou Williams also has helped out some at the point with Teague out.
Teague is having the best season of his career, averaging 16.2 points and 7.3 assists per game.
