Jeff Teague Injury: X-Rays Negative on Ankle, “No Timetable for Return”


Hawks fans can exhale a bit as X-rays on the sprained left ankle of point guard Jeff Teague came back negative, reports Chris Vivlamore of the AJC.

However, there is still some cause for concern as no timetable has been set for Teague’s return.

Teague got injured on Friday night during a home game against the San Antonio Spurs. In the second quarter, he went up for a block on Tim Duncan but came down awkwardly on Duncan’s foot. Teague showed pain immediately, limped off the court and went directly to the Hawks’ locker room.

As a result, Atlanta’s 6’2” point guard missed the following game — the first of a two-game road trip — when the team traveled to Milwaukee for a Saturday matchup.

The Hawks will continue on to Oklahoma City for a duel with the Thunder on Monday night. Teague will not make that trip either, and instead will stay back in the ATL to rest and recover.

Hopefully Teague will be available when the Hawks come back into town for a home game against Josh Smith and the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.
