The Minnesota Timberwolves have ruled point guard Jeff Teague out for their game at Milwaukee because of an injury to his left knee that occurred the previous night.

Teague was diagnosed with a Grade One MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) sprain in his last knee and is out indefinitely.

The Wolves announced Thursday before taking on the Bucks that Teague will not play. He limped off the court Wednesday night in the final minute of the fourth quarter of the team's overtime victory over Denver. Teague had 11 points and 10 assists before departing, with Tyus Jones taking his place in the lineup.
    
The 29-year-old Teague, in his first season with the Wolves, is averaging a career-high 34.2 minutes per game, with 13.4 points and 7.3 assists and a 44.7 field goal percentage. He missed four games last month because of an Achilles injury on his right foot.
