Al Horford has begun to rehabilitate his surgically repaired torn right pectoral muscle. The Hawks center posted photos of his first session on Instagram Wednesday. He also posted the following message on Twitter: “First Rehab session. Done with recovery phase, now getting mobility back.” Horford suffered the torn pectoral muscle on Dec. 26 against the Cavaliers. He underwent season-ending surgery Dec. 31 on the complete tear. The surgery was performed at Atlanta’s Piedmont Hospital by Dr. Xavier Duralde and accompanied by Hawks team physician Dr. Michael Bernot from the Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic.

The Knicks have had talks with Atlanta regarding Jeff Teague, who is available, sources say. The Hawks have been trying to improve their small forward position, but the Knicks can’t help them there. The downside to Teague is that he’s got three years left on a $32 million deal and that would cut into the Knicks’ future cap space. New York Daily News

Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague has emerged as an appealing trade target for the New York Knicks, sources with knowledge of the situation told ESPN.com. Sources told ESPN.com that the Knicks, leading into Thursday's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, are calling all over the league in an attempt to upgrade at point guard. ESPN.com

One scenario to keep an eye on here, though, is the possibilty of a three-team deal also involving the Hawks and point guard Jeff Teague. Atlanta has all of its first-round picks in the next four drafts and could conceivably send one to Toronto to satisfy the Raptors' demand for a future draft pick. League sources say a scenario in which Teague ends up in Toronto, Shumpert goes to Atlanta and Lowry winds up in New York has been discussed. Another scenario could have Teague ending up in New York. The conversations are believed to be preliminary and have not reached an advanced stage. ESPN.com
