Jeff Teague returns to Celtics lineup against Wizards Friday night
After missing Boston’s past two games, Jeff Teague will return for their home game against the Wizards. Teague has been dealing with a left ankle injury that forced him out of the Celtics lineup. Despite the point guard’s absence, Boston went 2-0 to improve their season record to 6-3. Rookie Payton Pritchard has seen an uptick in playing time with Teague on the shelf and has played well in the veteran’s leave. Pritchard put up career-bests with 23 points and eight assists in Boston’s win over the Raptors in a career-high 32 minutes on Monday. The Celts may want to see some more of their freshman, but it’s more than likely Teague will eat into his playing time Friday night.
