Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE
The guard gave the Hawks a scare early in Game 5, but has returned following an ankle injury.
Atlanta guard Jeff Teague is back after suffering an apparent ankle injury late in the first quarter of Game 5 of the Atlanta Hawks' first-round series against the Indiana Pacers.
Teague appeared to have rolled his ankle on a missed layup attempt, but did not require treatment.
Teague left the game after playing 11 minutes, during which he scored three points and dished out four assists. He did return, however, early in the second quarter, where Atlanta currently leads 30-28. Teague is coming off a Game 4 in which he poured on 21 points along with seven assists in the loss.
Teague is certainly a huge piece for Atlanta. The 24-year-old point guard posted career-highs in points and assists this season, averaging 14.6 points and 7.2 assists per game.
