In six preseason games, Chicago Bulls rookie point guard Marquis Teague is averaging one point and one turnover in five minutes of action. The first-round pick has struggled to find a rhythm and looks lost at times on the floor. At just 19, and just a few months removed from Kentucky Wildcats, Teague was always viewed as more of a project this season. But with the groin injury to Kirk Hinrich, the up-and-down play of Nate Robinson and the fact that Derrick Rose will be rehabbing his knee injury for much of the season, Teague has suddenly found himself pushed into a larger spotlight as a backup point guard. Despite his lack of experience and his unimpressive preseason to date, Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau remains publicly confident that Teague could step in and play meaningful minutes once the season begins.
