Wolves PG Jeff Teague to miss 2-4 weeks with sprained left MCL

Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Jeff Teague is expected to miss two to four weeks with an MCL sprain in his left knee, league sources told ESPN.

For now, Minnesota officials are content with continuing forward with a roster that includes Tyus Jones, a first-round pick in 2015, moving into the starting lineup and Jamal Crawford playing minutes at the point with the second unit, sources said.

Teague, 29, underwent an MRI exam on Thursday, which sources said revealed no structural damage to the knee.

Teague was injured when Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris rolled into Teague's lower leg during a scrum for the ball late in the Timberwolves' victory Wednesday night.

Teague has averaged 13.4 points and 7.3 assists for the Timberwolves this season. He signed a three-year, $57 million contract with Minnesota in July.
