D.J. Augustin posted his second dud in a row on Monday vs. the Bulls, scoring five points with three assists, two rebounds and one triple in 22 minutes.
The Magic were getting run out of the building, but their second unit brought them back into the game and coach Frank Vogel stuck with Shelvin Mack down the stretch. Augustin has now had one really good game to go with two duds, so he'll be back on the waiver wire soon if he doesn't sort things out. His owners should probably give him another chance unless there's a really hot free agent available like a Mario Hezonja. Feb 12 - 11:09 PM

D.J. Augustin said he will embrace any role for the Magic going forward.

"I’ve started before," Augustin said. "I’ve been a backup before. I’ve been benched. I’ve been cut. I’ve been traded. I’ve been everything. So I know how to handle myself and how to be ready at all times, and that’s something I pride myself on: just being ready for whatever I need to do to help the team win." Augustin has made two starts since the Magic dumped Elfrid Payton, putting up one strong game with 18 points, nine assists, two steals and two 3-pointers and one dud with 11 points on 2-of-7 shooting. He'll get a great matchup vs. the Bulls on Monday, so look for him to bounce back.

D.J. Augustin made the start Saturday against the Bucks, finishing with 11 points.

It wasn't a great shooting night, as was 2-of-7 from the field, including 0-of-4 from behind the 3-point line. He did all of his damage at the free-throw line, finishing a perfect 7-of-7. It was his 22nd time scoring in double digits this season. He'll continue to have a little more playing time with Aaron Gordon (hip) on the mend, but he'll need to shoot better if he wants to keep Shelvin Mack from carving into his playing time.
Feb 10 - 10:12 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 18 points with three rebounds, nine assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday.

He had a big fourth quarter and his teammates were knocking down many of the shots off his passes. Augustin gave way to some others early in the win, but he was the primary weapon to create offense to help pull off just the 18th win of the season. It's also worth a mention he did play minutes next to Shelvin Mack. He's not going to be this good and his track record isn't the best, but DJA should be added in all standard leagues after this game.
Feb 8 - 9:45 PM

D.J. Augustin is starting at point guard against the Hawks on Thursday.

Elfrid Payton is gone and coach Frank Vogel will just promote Augustin. It's also important to note that DJA and Shelvin Mack have played together for 254 minutes this season, so there are a lot of wing minutes available. Augustin looks like one of the best adds from the deadline today, so he should be added in 12-team leagues. Shelvin Mack is worth a look in 14-team leagues and Wes Iwundu also benefits.
Feb 8 - 5:21 PM

With Elfrid Payton shipped off to the Suns, D.J. Augustin and Shelvin Mack both took a step up the depth chart on Thursday, with DJA looking like the default starter for the Magic

Augustin was already playing well and gets a huge boost with this move, while Mack also gets a lift and more minutes. Augustin is currently averaging 11.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.8 3-pointers in 24 minutes over his last five games, but those numbers are about to go up. He may not be a must-own player, but if you're thin at point guard and you're waiver wire isn't very meaty, he can help and will be a popular add.
Feb 8 - 3:26 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 16 points vs. the Heat on Monday with three assists, one rebound, one steal and three triples in 23 minutes.

Elfrid Payton played 25 minutes and Shelvin Mack played 27 as the Magic continue to roll with more two-PG lineups while they are shorthanded. The Magic play again on Tuesday and Thursday, so Augustin does have some appeal in deeper leagues as a streaming option. He's scored in double digits in four straight games with nine total triples in that span.
Feb 5 - 11:08 PM

D.J. Augustin had another solid game on Wednesday with 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting, four rebounds, three assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.

Augustin turned the ball over twice in 21 minutes and he's quietly carved out steady playing time in Orlando, despite being a 30-year-old guard on a rebuilding team. Even if he does maintain his 20-minute role after the trade deadline, which is far from certain, he's only worth monitoring in leagues with 16+ teams.
Jan 31 - 10:55 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 18 points with six assists, six rebounds and two triples in 24 minutes against the Wolves on Tuesday.

Augustin has been eerily quiet for a while, as this was just his second game with double-digit points since Dec. 20. Unless he strings a few nice games together, he'll be a deep-league asset at best.
Jan 16 - 9:52 PM

D.J. Augustin posted just four points on 2-of-10 shooting Wednesday's 110-103 loss at Milwaukee.

Augustin was also a dismal 0-of-5 from behind the arc while adding four assists, three rebounds and no other stats. He was unable to carry over the momentum from a solid 18-point performance the previous night against the Mavericks. This is why he is only a recommended fantasy option in the deepest of formats. Augustin is just too inconsistent.
Jan 10 - 10:41 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 18 points with five assists, three rebounds and four triples in 23 minutes vs. the Mavericks on Tuesday.

The entire Orlando starting lineup was a -23 or worse, but Augustin, Aaron Gordon and Marreese Speights kept the Magic within striking distance. Augustin has been in a really bad slump lately and this was his first game with double-digit points since Dec. 20. Leave him on the wire for now.
Jan 9 - 11:34 PM

D.J. Augustin scored nine points with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

He did log some minutes next to Elfrid Payton as expected, but Augustin just won't be doing much unless he's hot from deep. Plus, Evan Fournier (ankle) is getting closer.
Sat, Dec 23, 2017 09:48:00 PM

D.J. Augustin will move to the bench against the Wizards on Saturday.

He started against the smaller Pelicans backcourt on Friday, but that won't work against this Wizards team. Expect Augustin to back up Elfrid Payton with the occasional SG minutes. Shelvin Mack could be out of the rotation.
Sat, Dec 23, 2017 05:37:00 PM

D.J. Augustin posted just two points in 30 minutes Friday night against the Pelicans.

Head coach Frank Vogel wanted more shooting on the floor, so he plugged Augustin into the starting five. So much for that theory. Augustin finished 0-of-3 from the field while adding three rebounds, one assist and one turnover with a minus-14 rating. The good news for Augustin is that Shelvin Mack did nothing coming off the bench, either, a good reason why the Pels trucked the Magic in O-Town.

D.J. Augustin will start against the Pelicans on Friday.

Coach Frank Vogel said he wants to get more shooting on the floor, so that explains the move of DJA getting the start. It'll be interesting to see if Augustin gets staggered or if Shelvin Mack plays most of the backup PG minutes. Augustin is a lukewarm stream today.
