#Hawks G Jeff Teague left practice with L ankle inj. Day-to-day. Larry Drew: "Not sure of the severity of it right now."— Michael Cunningham (@ajchawks) December 21, 2011
I don't have to explain how catastrophic any kind of injury to Jeff Teague would be for the Hawks who are already extremely thin at the point guard position. Atlanta just signed free agent Jannero Pargo to a contract to back up Teague while Kirk Hinrich is out with a shoulder injury. Brad Wanamaker and Donald Sloan took turns backing up Teague in the Hawks first preseason game but neither was overly impressive.
Atlanta also has Pape Sy, Joe Johnson and Tracy McGrady that could fill in at the point guard position if the situation dictates but it shouldn't be viewed as a long term solution. We will update Teague's situation as soon as more information is available.
