Update: Jeff Teague has returned to the game with his right hand bandaged.

Still no word on the exact injury but its a good sign he is able to play through it.

Jeff Teague went to the locker room with the Hawks' trainer with an apparent right hand injury.

We won't speculate on the injury but Teague would be a big loss for the Hawks if it was anything serious.

Al Horford (pectoral) will start in Tuesday's exhibition game vs. the Heat.

Al Horford went down on December 26, 2013 with a torn pectoral muscle and all of his fantasy owners have been just waiting for this news ever since. The Hawks will play it very cautious with Horford but he should be all systems go for the start of the regular season and is a solid late-second, early-third round pick in fantasy drafts after averaging 18.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.9 steals, and 1.5 blocks before getting hurt last year.

 Al Horford is likely to participate in one of the team's three exhibition games this week.

Horford is recovering from a torn pectoral muscle that happened early last season. He has been progressing through practices, and seems to be ready for game action. Their games come on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday this week, so Horford will appear in one of those. Horford is one of the league's best centers, and Atlanta will need him to come back to his regular form.

Kent Bazemore (foot) will not play in Saturday's exhibition game.

Bazemore is still recovering from April foot surgery. He's getting real close to returning though and should definitely be ready for the start of the regular season.

Al Horford (chest) will not play in Saturday's exhibition game.

Horford is still easing his way back in after having his season cut short last year due to a torn pectoral muscle. He's been cleared for contact and is doing 5-onm-5 work at practice, but the Hawks seem hesitant to unleash him just yet.

Pero Antic (nose) will not play in Saturday's exhibition game.

Antic broke his nose in practice and while he was fitted for a protective mask, he's just going to sit this one out and get better. He'll be fine for when the regular season starts.

Kent Bazemore (foot) took part in full contact five-on-five scrimmage work during Wednesday's practice.

Bazemore is getting closer to 100% after getting surgery in April. His role for the season, if healthy, points to being a guard off the bench this season to spell starter Kyle Korver. Last season, he averaged six points per game.
