With Russell Westbrook (face) unavailable, D.J. Augustin started for the Thunder on Sunday and notched 18 points, four 3-pointers, nine rebounds, five assists and one steal.
Westbrook isn't expected to be out long and OKC doesn't play again until Wednesday, so this may be Augustin's only fill-in start. He shot 6-of-15 from the field in 41 minutes and would resume must-own fantasy status if Westbrook ever suffered a long-term injury, so don't lose sight of him in the coming weeks. Mar 1 - 10:10 PM

D.J. Augustin played 20 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Blazers during a 115-112 loss with six points, one rebound, four assists and two steals.

There is nothing encouraging coming out regarding Russell Westbrook now and it sounds like he's going to need to miss time with his facial injury. As of Friday night, he is going to be evaluated, but the team might not provide an update until Saturday. If you need a point guard and are OK with cutting someone, it makes sense to add Augustin.
Feb 28 - 2:45 AM

D.J. Augustin scored 13 points in 27 minutes off the bench on Thursday vs. the Suns, adding five boards, three assists and one 3-pointer.

In four games with the Thunder Augustin has averaged 9.0 points, 3.5 assists, 3.3 boards and 1.5 3-pointers in 26.3 minutes per game. While he is no longer worth owning in standard leagues since his move from Detroit, he is doing enough to remain viable in deeper leagues.
Feb 27 - 2:13 AM

D.J. Augustin struggled in 25 minutes on Tuesday, as he came off the bench to score three points on 1-of-6 shooting with two rebounds, seven assists and one steal.

Anyone holding onto Augustin should scour the waiver wire for a better option. His value tanked overnight with the trade to OKC and he's only worth keeping if you're targeting 3-pointers and assists in a deep league.
Feb 24 - 11:16 PM

D.J. Augustin logged 30 minutes in his second game coming off the Thunder bench, scoring eight points with two 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and one steal.

He was 2-of-7 from the field and committed three turnovers, and his playing time was higher than expected due to Kyle Singler's foul trouble and Russell Westbrook's limited minutes in the blowout -- Augustin's 30 minutes were a team-high. This is a fluky line, in other words, and his trade to Oklahoma City instantly morphed him from a must-start fantasy player into a fringe option.
Feb 22 - 10:01 PM

D.J. Augustin played 23 minutes in his Thunder debut on Saturday with 12 points, three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.

The important thing here is that he did play next to Russell Westbrook. It was for 10 minutes and he played down the stretch. This does sounds great and all, but there just are not going to be many shots for DJA once Kevin Durant comes back. He's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Feb 21 - 10:06 PM

D.J. Augustin has been traded to the Thunder in the big Reggie Jackson deal.

The Thunder cleaned up and they got their man as a backup point guard. Russell Westbrook will play minutes in the mid-30s, so that means Augustin should only play minutes in the teens. Although, they could use some DJ-Westy lineups and get DJ to around 20 minutes. That said, he's a cut candidate in standard leagues.
Feb 19 - 3:42 PM

D.J. Augustin had another strong offensive showing against the Spurs during a 104-87 loss on Wednesday with 22 points, three rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers.

He is still putting up big numbers as the starter, but the regression has been taking a hit recently, as expected. In his last five, Augustin made just 41.7 percent from the field with averages of 18.8 points, 2.0 boards, 7.2 assists and 1.6 treys. He's still a very strong player to own in all leagues.
Feb 11 - 10:55 PM

D.J. Augustin contributed 18 points, one 3-pointer, five assists and one steal in just 28 minutes during Tuesday's easy win in Charlotte.

Veteran PG John Lucas was scoreless in 16 minutes off the bench and he's clearly no threat to Augustin. In the eight games since Brandon Jennings (Achilles) went down, Jennings was averaging a stellar 20.4 points (48.6 percent FGs, 95.3 percent FTs), 2.0 threes, 2.6 rebounds, 8.9 assists and 0.9 steals. That's good enough for early-round production in 8-cat leagues and his owners have to be ecstatic, though he's unlikely to maintain this pace after the All-Star break.
Feb 10 - 9:30 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 22 points on 6-of-10 shooting (2-of-3 3PTs, 8-of-8 FTs) with two rebounds and 11 assists in Friday's win over the Nuggets.

Augustin is handling the ball a bunch and he's sitting on two weeks of top 20-30 play. He can't keep that up but mid-round value sure seems likely.
Feb 7 - 1:28 AM

D.J. Augustin made 4-of-14 from the field for 12 points with two rebounds, six assists, three turnovers and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He had nowhere to go but down, but he still had plenty of shots. Augustin was on a roll in his previous five and it had a lot to do with him making 65.5 percent at the rim, which was well above his career 51.4 percent from that range. Plus, coach Stan Van Gundy said he wanted to lower DJA's minutes. He's still a must-start player, but his owners will want to keep their expectations in check.
Feb 4 - 9:24 PM

Coach Stan Van Gundy said that he's concerned about D.J. Augustin playing too many minutes.

He said he's particularly worried about Augustin playing six games in nine night. Augustin has been on fire in his last five and a lot of it has to do with how he's performed at the rim. He's obviously worth owning in all leagues, but we're expecting him to regress a little.
Feb 4 - 6:39 PM

D.J. Augustin led the Pistons to a win over the Heat on Tuesday with 25 points, 13 assists, four boards, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

Augustin has now averaged 21.8 points, 9.2 assists, 3 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 2.2 3-pointers in 35.8 minutes per game since taking over as the starter for the injured Brandon Jennings (Achilles), and it's becoming obvious that the man can play. If Augustin is somehow still available in your league, he needs to be picked up immediately.
Feb 3 - 11:35 PM

D.J. Augustin wasn't bothered by Patrick Beverley and racked up 28 points, two rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 8-of-13 shooting in Saturday's win over the Rockets.

Hopefully you didn't panic and drop him after he missed all seven of his shots and had two points on Wednesday. The 12 dimes were easily a season high, but he scored 35 points last Sunday. He should be good to go throughout the rest of the season with Brandon Jennings done for the year with an Achilles injury.
Feb 1 - 12:57 AM

D.J. Augustin laid an egg on Wednesday, missing all seven of his shots and finishing with just two points, one rebound, four assists and two steals in 34 minutes.

The good news is that he played so many minutes and Brandon Jennings isn't coming back anytime soon. Yes, this game was a total buzzkill for all of DJA's new owners, but he should bounce back in the next one. Don't cut him.
