Jeff Teague will be a “game-time decision” tonight in Philadelphia, reports Hawks beat writer Chris Vivlamore of the AJC.
Teague made the trip to Philly after missing the previous two road games with a sprained left ankle.
According to Viv, the Hawks’ 6’2” floor general was at shootaround Friday morning but he will be re-evaluated before the game.
Teague’s injury occurred on Jan. 24 during the second quarter of a home game against the San Antonio Spurs when Teague went up for a block on Tim Duncan but came down on Duncan’s foot, forcing Teague to limp off the court and go directly into the Hawks’ locker room. He did not travel with the team for the following two-game road trip in Milwaukee and Oklahoma City.
X-rays on the ankle came back negative on Sunday initially, but there was still cause for concern as there was “no timetable for return.” By then, the Hawks had already blown out the Bucks and were on their way to OKC, while Teague was recovering back in the ATL. The team returned home on Tuesday morning and was scheduled to host the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday but that game was postponed by the NBA due to severe weather conditions in metro Atlanta, which could have been a blessing because Teague probably would not have played.
Yesterday, things looked a lot better as we got news that Teague had been listed as “day-to-day.”
Hopefully Teague plays tonight and didn’t make the trip to Philly for nothing. I highly doubt he did.
