In 31 games this season, Teague has posted marks of 13.4 points and 7.3 assists per game while shooting 37.5 percent from beyond the arc.

He did miss four games earlier this season with an Achilles injury. Jones has started three games this season, and Minnesota went 2-1 in those games.

"As always, it's whatever the team needs me to do, " Jones said Wednesday night. Teague had 11 points and 10 assists before departing, with Tyus Jones taking his place in the lineup. "I'm ready to help this team in any way". "I'm hoping Jeff is all right". "He's a phenomenal point guard, and especially when he's out there just playing, he's going to be in this league for a very long time". The Nuggets have allowed an average of 83 points during their winning streak after suffering a 112-104 loss to Minnesota on December 20 as Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns scored 25 each for the Timberwolves while Murray poured in 30. The only other point guard now on the roster is Aaron Brooks.

The Wolves announced Thursday before taking on the Bucks that Teague would not play in Milwaukee. They have a roster spot open to do so.
