The Atlanta Hawks are expected to get Jeff Teague back in the starting lineup in time for Friday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Teague missed three-games with a strained hamstring. He returned to action in Tuesday's win over the Los Angeles Clippers but came off the bench although Mike Budenholzer said that was just a temporary thing. Teague was working with the starters at the team's Friday shootaround and will return to the starting lineup according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chris Vivlamore.

Pero Antic sat out Tuesday's game due to sprained ankle. The Hawks upgraded his status to Probable on Friday but Vivlamore reports that the team will give him another day to heal. If Antic can't go, then Budenholzer will likely turn to Elton Brand for the primary backup center minutes behind starter Al Horford.
