Head coach Frank Vogel said that D.J. Augustin, Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic will not play "big minutes" on Wednesday.
In other words, the vets will have their minutes limited as Orlando tanks away the final game of their season, making these guys tough to trust in DFS. This is good news for Mario Hezonja and Khem Birch, though. Apr 11 - 12:39 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 19 points with one rebound, two assists and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

That is filling it up in limited time. Augustin is going to have to keep doing it because Rodney Purvis will get minutes. Plus, don't be shocked if DJA gets a night off soon.
Apr 6 - 9:32 PM

D.J. Augustin scored eight points with two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.

Tank Bowl Magic Edition was out in force today, so DJA didn't get minutes down the stretch. It's not going to be fun to own Magic players now that the tank-shaped cat is out of the bag.
Apr 4 - 10:12 PM

D.J. Augustin scored a team-high 20 points in Sunday's 94-88 loss in Atlanta.

Augustin gave his fantasy owners an Easter treat with an 8-of-14 shooting night, while also going 3-of-3 from the free-throw line. He also had a respectable seven rebounds and three assists with no turnovers. It was his 37th time scoring in double digits this season. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Tuesday's game in New York. He has struggled against the Knicks this season, averaging just 8.0 points per game in two outings.
Apr 1 - 8:41 PM

D.J. Augustin hit 4-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, three rebounds and 10 assists in 35 minutes in another start at point guard on Tuesday.

Shelvin Mack came off the bench for 17 points, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes, but Augustin's been playing well for the Magic lately. He's averaging 16.4 points, 2.2 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five games, and has basically been running circles around Mack, who has been more inconsistent than DJA.
Mar 20 - 9:32 PM

D.J. Augustin scored a season-high 32 points during a win over the Bucks on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, four assists, two steals and six 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

It was a shooting clinic for the Magic with a season-high 18 treys to tie a franchise record at home. Augustin scoring 30 is rare air with this being just his fourth 30-plus scoring game of his career, and just the second game with even 20 points this season. Augustin seems to have a grip on the first-unit job and the Magic aren't going to their no-PG lineups anymore, so he's a fine option despite a lack of games on the horizon.
Mar 14 - 9:47 PM

D.J. Augustin finished with 19 points across 29 minutes in Saturday's 113-105 road loss against the Clippers.

Augustin went 5-of-10 from the field, 1-of-6 from behind the 3-point line and 8-of-9 from the free-throw line while adding a rebound and an assist with four turnovers. He has scored 10 or more points in seven of the past eight outings, and he is working on a 12-game streak with at least one 3-pointer.
Mar 11 - 1:14 AM

D.J. Augustin played through a minor ankle injury on Friday vs. the Kings, scoring 12 points with seven assists, two rebounds and four triples in 28 minutes.

As expected, the Magic used him alongside Shelvin Mack for stretches and they will have to get creative with some of their lineups while Evan Fournier (knee) and Aaron Gordon (hip) are out. Augustin was averaging 10.4 points, 5.5 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.6 triples as a fill-in starter prior to Friday, but he's just a low-end player going forward and the Magic have a terrible fantasy playoff schedule (3-3-3 over the next few weeks).
Mar 10 - 12:39 AM

D.J. Augustin (ankle) will play vs. the Kings.

Coach Frank Vogel was expecting him to play and now we have official confirmation. Augustin was previously just a low-end player to own in standard leagues, but should see a bump in value with both Evan Fournier (knee) and Aaron Gordon (hip) out.
Mar 9 - 8:04 PM

Coach Frank Vogel said he expects D.J. Augustin (ankle) to play against the Kings on Friday.

The Magic also confirmed that Augustin did suffer the injury on Wednesday, and it's not a lingering issue. He did return to the game on the last possession, so there was not much doubt on the severity. If for some reason he can't go, that means plenty of Shelvin Mack with more Aaron Gordon and Mario Hezonja running the offense.
Mar 8 - 9:09 PM

D.J. Augustin (ankle) is listed as questionable in the game notes to face the Kings on Friday.

He may have suffered the injury on a drive to the basket on Wednesday, but he got up and didn't look to be in too much pain. Augustin did not play for most of the final five minutes, but he was on the court for the last possession. If he's out, Shelvin Mack could be looking at big minutes while the Magic go with no-PG lineups again.

Mar 8 - 4:15 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 20 points with five rebounds, nine assists and four 3-pointers in 41 minutes in an overtime win over the Pistons on Friday.

He's starting to heat up again after it looked like his minutes were heading south on Saturday due to the Magic rolling out some no-PG lineups. The Magic do have a surplus of forwards right now and that lineup could be on the table, but maybe Augustin can keep it going. He's worth a look if you need shooting PG, but keep in mind he'll have some duds.
Mar 2 - 9:46 PM

D.J. Augustin hit 4-of-6 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, four rebounds, nine assists, three steals and five turnovers in Monday's loss to the Thunder.

DJA has been dropped in a ton of leagues and probably belongs on waivers, despite the nice line tonight. Shelvin Mack had seven points, five assists and a 3-pointer in 17 minutes tonight, while Aaron Gordon is also playing some point guard for the Magic these days.
Feb 26 - 11:02 PM

D.J. Augustin scored eight points with one rebound, two assists and two 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

The Magic went with a no-PG lineup in the fourth quarter with their starters and Mario Hezonja instead of DJA. Things aren't looking good for DJA since his first start after the deadline, averaging just 10.6 points, 2.0 boards, 3.6 assists, 0.2 steals and 2.0 treys on 36.8 percent from the field. He'll be better, but his upside isn't the greatest and shallow-league owners can probably do better. The no-PG lineup thing could continue, which would really cap his upside.
Feb 24 - 7:31 PM

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.
