Hawks Locker :
With Kirk Hinrich out of action to start the 2011-12 season, the Hawks handed 23-year old Jeff Teague the starting job at point guard and he’s doing a good job so far this year. Teague has played in 9 games (all starts) for the Hawks so far this year and he is averaging 34.2 minutes, 11.0 points, 1.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 2.1 steals per game. If Teague keeps playing well, Kirk Hinrich will be the #3 guard when he returns to action.
