Wolves reportedly concerned about Jeff Teague’s knee injury
Jeff Teague went down with a knee injury towards the end of a win over Denver on Wednesday, and there is some anxiousness over the severity of it.
The former All-Star was injured on a jump ball play late in the fourth quarter when Nuggets guard Gary Harris landed on him and rolled over his left knee.

Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reported that Teague will undergo an MRI on Thursday morning and that there is “definitely concern” about the injury.

The 29-year-old Teague signed a three-year, $57 million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves in July. He is averaging 13.4 points and a team-high 7.2 assists per game for them this season.
Though they are 22-13 on the year, the Wolves have struggled to integrate some of their other new faces this year, and an extended absence from their star point guard would obviously complicate matters even further.
