D.J. Augustin (personal) is a game-time call against the Magic on Monday.

He is not at the arena yet and there is not much information right now on his status. Considering he's still not there for an 8:00 game, Augustin could wind up sitting out. If he's out, Kirk Hinrich should get more while Mike Dunleavy could play more due to the Bulls going with less two-PG lineups.
Apr 14 - 6:23 PM

D.J. Augustin scored a team-high 24 points vs. the Pistons on Friday with four boards, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

He was 9-of-10 from the line and is doing much better at getting his points from there. That's a big reason why he's scored at least 21 points in four of his last six games and he's become of the best offensive bench guards in the NBA. Augustin is a must-start player in fantasy formats.
Apr 12 - 1:15 AM

D.J. Augustin scored a game-high 25 points against the Wizards on Saturday with four boards, four assists, two steals and six 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

He continues to hang big scoring lines on opponents and is a big reason why the Bulls rank eighth in the NBA for bench points per game since the All-Star break. Augustin's output in 3-pointers makes him a must-own player in standard formats.
Apr 5 - 9:21 PM

D.J. Augustins scored 23 points with one board, five assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Hawks.

He has been a huge force off the bench for the Bulls and it's hard to believe the Raptors cut him loose earlier this season. Thanks to his output in 3-pointers, Augustin has become a must-start player in standard formats.
Apr 3 - 12:02 AM

D.J. Augustin followed up his career best 33-point effort on Sunday with just four points on 1-of-9 shooting on Monday, but still handed out 11 assists to smooth things out with owners.

Augustin did not hit a three and like most nights he didn't have a steal or block, but he has been a top-100 player over the last two weeks and should be in most lineups.
Apr 1 - 12:59 AM

D.J. Augustin set a new career high with 33 points on 10-of-14 FGs and 10-of-10 FTs vs. the Celtics on Sunday, hitting three 3-pointers to go along with three assists and one steal.

Augustin played only 31 minutes and he continues to shine in a reserve role, having missed double-digit points just one time all month. Anyone seeking help with scoring, assists and FT percentage should look no further, and his value in nine-cat leagues is strengthened by a stingy 1.1 turnovers per game over the past month.
Mar 30 - 9:37 PM

D.J. Augustin did not make any 3-pointers against the Pacers on Monday with four points, one board and three assists in 28 minutes.

It's the first time he's failed to crack double-digit scoring this month, which is pretty impressive for a guy coming off the bench. Augustin put up averages of 17.8 points, 3.6 dimes, 0.3 steals and 2.2 triples on 47.1 percent from the field, so his fantasy owners should have no complaints about tonight's dud against a great Indiana defense.
Mar 24 - 11:51 PM

D.J. Augustin hit 5-of-11 shots and three 3-pointers for 16 points, four rebounds, six assists and a steal in 31 minutes off the bench on Saturday.

Starter Kirk Hinrich had nine points, three rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer in 32 minutes, but DJA is the guard you want to own in fantasy. He's been very reliable and is averaging 15.0 points, 3.2 assists and 1.8 3-pointers over his last five games.
Mar 22 - 11:22 PM

D.J. Augustin did his thing off the bench against the Pacers on Friday with 17 points, four boards, three assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 30 minutes.

There are not many bench guards putting up the type of numbers Augustin has posted since the break. In that span, he averaged 15.4 points, 3.8 dimes, 0.4 steals and 2.2 triples on 41.8 percent from the field. Augustin is another case to support the claim minutes and role trump being a starter any day of the week.
Mar 21 - 10:54 PM

D.J. Augustin had another nice game Wednesday, hitting 6-of-15 shots and four 3-pointers for 20 points, two rebounds and two assists.

Kirk Hinrich started and hit just 1-of-5 shots (a 3-pointer) for three points and two assists in a win over the Sixers. Hinrich is officially an afterthought, while DJA is a very strong fantasy option every night. In fact, he' scored in double figures in all 10 of his March games, draining 23 3-pointers along the way.
Mar 19 - 10:04 PM

D.J. Augustin hit just 3-of-11 shots (0-for-6 from deep) for 10 points, one rebound and three assists in 30 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Augustin has been rolling lately so owners should let this one slide, but in the fantasy playoffs folks might want to have a shorter rope than usual as his value can really plummet when he's not hitting his threes. We're waiting for another dud before signing off on a drop in most formats.
Mar 17 - 11:05 PM

D.J. Augustin kept his momentum going off the bench on Thursday vs. the Rockets with 13 points, one rebound, eight assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

His production from deep is carrying his overall fantasy value with 2.2 per game since the All-Star break. Augustin is still seeing 25 minutes per game off the bench and scoring in the teens somewhat consistently makes him a must-own player in standard formats.
Mar 13 - 10:17 PM

D.J. Augustin led a futile charge late in Tuesday's loss to the Spurs, scoring 14 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter.

He thoroughly outplayed Kirk Hinrich (three points, three assists) and finished 7-of-10 from the field and 8-of-9 from the FT line, with two 3-pointers, three rebounds, four assists and two turnovers. Augustin is now averaging 20.2 points and 2.4 threes over the Bulls' past six games despite his backup role. Throw in stellar percentages from the field and the FT line, and he belongs in all fantasy lineups until further notice.
Mar 11 - 11:36 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 22 points against the Heat during an overtime win on Sunday with one rebound, two assists and four 3-pointers on 8-of-13 from the field in 37 minutes.

Coach Tom Thibodeau has turned trash to treasure with Augustin this season. The guard shot just 9.1 percent from deep with the Raptors this year, but has turned it around with a pristine 41.6 percent from that range with the Bulls this season. He'll have his quiet games, but DJA is a must-own player in standard formats for treys, assists, steals and points.
