MILWAUKEE — The Minnesota Timberwolves say point guard Jeff Teague will be sidelined indefinitely because of a knee injury.
The Wolves announced Thursday (Friday, Manila time) before taking on the Bucks that Teague would not play in Milwaukee. They said later than an MRI revealed a sprain in his left knee.
He limped off the court Wednesday night in the final minute of the fourth quarter of the team’s overtime victory over Denver. Teague had 11 points and 10 assists before departing, with Tyus Jones taking his place in the lineup.
The 29-year-old Teague, in his first season with the Wolves, is averaging a career-high 34.2 minutes per game, with 13.4 points and 7.3 assists and a 44.7 field goal percentage. He missed four games last month because of an Achilles injury on his right foot.
