Commey could avoid Loma by scheduling a unification with winner Campbell/Haney (if that fight happens), but Commeys money fight is Loma, so this eliminator makes sure it happens.

Assuming Teo wins the eliminator, Commey fights Loma earliest Sep, then very earliest Loma v Teo could happen is Dec, and he's already said he doubts he can make 135 by then.

More likely things stretch out a bit longer than that timeline, eg Sept is the earliest possible date for Loma assuming everything goes perfectly with the recovery from the hand injury - it might not, so Commey v Loma might be later in the year, pushing Teo into 2020 where he won't be able to make 135 any more.

Reason Teo might not take the Nakatani fight.
Great analysis! Both Commey and Lomachenko have hand injuries, so I think Lopez will never see Lomachenko! In that case, he should move up now, and stop trying to starve himself! Plus he could position himself for Ramirez or Prograis for 2020!
