    Jeff Teague didn't shoot well but had a solid night on Tuesday, providing nine points (3-for-14 FGs, 2-for-3 FTs), three rebounds, seven assists, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

    Teague isn't the solid bet to finish inside the top-50 that he used to be, but he's a great value around pick 90 where he's been going in drafts.

    Andrew Wiggins led the starters in scoring on Thursday with 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting with two 3-pointers and three assists.

    Wiggins continues to be a player that only adds value through scoring. There isn't much else beyond that, but there's a place for that on certain fantasy teams. Jeff Teague also had 13 points to go with two assists and two triples and is a better fantasy player as he contributes in the assists department which can be hard to find later in drafts.

    Jeff Teague (left ankle) is not expected to have any restrictions for training camp.

    Teague had a left ankle debridement procedure in April to help alleviate inflammation. Teague's ankles have given him trouble throughout his career and he only played 42 games last season. With a clean bill of health Teague will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing season.

    Jeff Teague exercised his option on Friday to return to the Timberwolves for the 2019-2020 season.

    This isn't a surprise given how injury-plagued he was this season. He played just 42 games and finished outside the top-100 in per-game value as he watched most of his stats decline (except for assists, which were a career-high). A healthy season should make Teague a potential steal in drafts next year.

    Jeff Teague finished 2018-19 with just top-100/120 per-game value despite setting a new career-high with 8.2 assists per game.

    The playmaking was there, but this was Teague's worst season since becoming a full-time starter in terms of minutes (30.1), points (12.1), steals (1.0), 3-pointers (0.8) and field goal percentage (.423). He also set a new career-low with just 42 games played, missing the final 15 games for a left foot/ankle issue that eventually required surgery as well as two for left knee soreness, eight for an earlier bout of left foot soreness and nine for left ankle inflammation. The huge absences led to top-200 total value, and it was a sharp fall from grace for a normally-reliable middle-round player. Teague is now on the wrong side of 30 and we'd be wary of those left foot issues going forward, but we wouldn't expect Teague to struggle to this degree again.

    Jeff Teague (left foot inflammation) underwent successful left ankle surgery on Wednesday.

    Hopefully he'll be back injury free next year, as it was clear he was never healthy from the get go.

    Tyus Jones officially gets the nod on the extra playing time left by Derrick Rose and Teague as the Timberwolves wave the white flag for this year.

    Jeff Teague (left foot inflammation) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

    With Teague out and Derrick Rose doubtful, Tyus Jones is once again a great start if you need assists and steals.

    Jeff Teague (left foot inflammation) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Rockets.

    Ryan Saunders said today that Teague has returned to Minnesota for further testing on his foot, so we're expecting a few more missed games here. That makes him a drop candidate, while Tyus Jones should be added across the board.

    Jeff Teague (left foot inflammation) has returned to Minnesota for further evaluation on his foot injury.

    Considering the Wolves play in Houston on Sunday, it's safe to say that Teague will miss that one. Odds are he misses more than that, too. He's looking like a drop candidate, while Tyus Jones' stock continues to rise. Jones is worth a look in all leagues at this point.

    Jeff Teague (left foot inflammation) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Jazz.

    Teague's disappointing season looks to be meeting a fitting end, as the Wolves haven't said much about the injury. It's at least his third bout of left foot issues this year and a shutdown could be on deck with the Wolves playing out the string. Tyus Jones is looking like a strong add who will hold quality short-term value at minimum.

    Jeff Teague (left foot inflammation) is being listed as questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Jazz.

    Teague's troublesome left foot has sidelined him multiple times this year, and the latest instance couldn't come at a worse time for fantasy owners. With Derrick Rose (elbow) also on the injury report we might see Tyus Jones make another start tomorrow, with Jerryd Bayless and Cam Reynolds backing him up. Jones is the only one worth a look, while fantasy owners will just have to sit tight and hope Teague recovers quickly.

    Jeff Teague (left foot inflammation) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

    Derrick Rose (elbow) is also out, so Tyus Jones and Jerryd Bayless will be handling the point guard minutes tonight. Teague has had a disappointing year overall, but was coming on strong over his last few games. It's a tough blow for his fantasy owners, and a drop might be in order depending on how your playoff matchups are going. This doesn't look like a serious injury but Teague's dealt with a lot of left foot problems this year and the Wolves aren't playing for anything.
