Jeff Teague appears to have avoided a serious knee injury, but the Minnesota Timberwolves guard is expected to miss some time.
Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Teague, who left Wednesday’s game against the Denver Nuggets after hurting himself during a jump ball play, suffered no structural damage to his left knee and only a sprain. He will be out for an undetermined amount of time.

The Timberwolves were reportedly concerned about Teague’s injury after Wednesday’s game, so the fact that he was diagnosed with a sprain is good news. The 29-year-old is averaging 13.4 points and a team-high 7.2 assists per game in his first season with the team. He signed a three-year, $57 million deal with Minnesota back in July.
