After a 2-game absence due to an ankle injury, Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague is in the starting lineup against the Philadelphia 76ers.

After a 2-game absence due to an ankle injury, Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague is in the starting lineup against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Hawks have played quite well in Teague's absence (with the exception of the second half against San Antonio), but this is a welcome surprise and a fantastic addition to the active roster for Friday night. It will be very interesting to see what type of workload that he can endure, but regardless of any "minute restraint" on Teague during the game, the Hawks have the requisite depth with Shelvin Mack and Dennis Schroder to withstand that issue.

Keep an eye on Teague's explosiveness at both hands, as he will likely be tasked with dealing with Michael Carter-Williams on the defensive end and initiating offense on the offensive end. Stay tuned.
