D.J. Augustin was held scoreless against the Pacers on Sunday, missing all five of his shots from the field in 15 minutes.
He had just a single assist to his name tonight, but if Russell Westbrook is indeed suspended for Monday's game vs. Portland then Augustin would have to step up. Augustin has averages of 18.6 points, 7.6 assists, 2.8 boards and 1.9 3-pointers in 14 previous starts this season, so owners in daily leagues will want to give him a look. Apr 12 - 9:39 PM

D.J. Augustin sank four 3-pointers in 32 minutes off the bench on Sunday, combining with Anthony Morrow to score 30 points with seven 3-pointers on 10-of-15 shooting.

Augustin had 19 points and the combined perimeter assault with Morrow was too much for the Suns, who coughed up a big early lead in a home loss. This is an outlier for DJA, who was held to single-digits in his previous five games, and he's a borderline option as long as Russell Westbrook is healthy and running the show.
Mar 29 - 11:55 PM

D.J. Augustin scored nine points off the bench on Friday, hitting 4-of-11 shots (including a three) with two rebounds, five assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

This takes the edge off a little bit after disappearing the past week, but it's not enough to push him back into the standard league conversation. At least not with Kevin Durant theoretically returning soon.
Mar 14 - 12:36 AM

D.J. Augustin scored 10 points on 4-of-7 from the field against the Bulls on Thursday with one rebound, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

After three really inefficient scoring games with OKC to start of his run with them, he's really picked it up. In his last five, Augustin averaged 12.8 points, 4.0 boards, 3.4 dimes, 1.2 steals and 1.8 treys on 46.0 percent from the field and 100 percent from the line. He should be worth owning in standard leagues until Kevin Durant (foot) gets back.
Mar 5 - 10:56 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 17 points off the bench against the 76ers on Wednesday with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

It was one of his better games with OKC and he's going to have a chance to produce next to Russell Westbrook. Augustin will see his chances to shoot decrease in a big way upon the return of Kevin Durant (foot), but he should be worth owning in standard leagues until then.
Mar 5 - 1:44 AM

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.
