Teague (ankle) will play Tuesday against the 76ers.
As expected, a balky ankle won't prevent Teague from assuming his regular spot in the starting lineup Tuesday. Over his last five games, the point guard is averaging 12.0 points, 8.4 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals across 27 minutes.
Added 6:34 pm (EST)
G. Antetokounmpo - SF
Antetokounmpo (quad) will play Tuesday against the Heat, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
As expected, a bruised right quad won't prevent the MVP candidate from taking the court. Since December, he's averaging 26.2 points, 12.3 rebounds, 5.9 assists and a combined 2.9 blocks/steals on 58.2 percent shooting.
Added 6:28 pm (EST)
D. Rose - PG
Rose (ankle) will play Tuesday against the 76ers.
Rose has missed six of the past seven games with an ankle sprain, but he'll be able to take the court Tuesday. Since December, he's averaging 18.9 points, 5.5 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 1.0 steal in 29.9 minutes.
Added 6:19 pm (EST)
D. Booker - SG
Booker (back), as expected, will return to the starting five Tuesday against the Pacers, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
News had previously come through that Booker was cleared to play, but it wasn't officially confirmed that he'd be back in the starting five. The move will presumably push Josh Jackson back to the bench.
Added 5:47 pm (EST)
Teague (ankle) is expected to play Tuesday against the 76ers, Dane Moore of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Teague aggravated his ankle injury Saturday against the Pelicans, but he was able to both go through practice Monday and participate in Tuesday's morning shootaround. While he hasn't officially been cleared to play, the expectation is that the veteran will take the court against Philadelphia.
