D.J. Augustin scored 10 points with four rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer vs. the Pacers on Monday.
He saw 23 minutes after playing 17 minutes on Saturday, so the hamstring injury is hopefully in the rear-view mirror. Augustin outplayed Payton tonight, though he did turn the ball over five times. There's been no indication that Payton's job is in danger, so Augustin is merely a deep-league asset as long he continues to lead the second unit. Nov 20 - 10:24 PM

D.J. Augustin (hamsring) returned after a seven-game absence on Saturday, failing to score with one rebound and one assist in 17 minutes.

He did play a little bit in garbage time, but he was not very good while he was out there -- also a laughable -28 in plus/minus. Augustin should be able to get his role back with minutes around 18, but he's probably not going to see much run next to Elfrid Payton because of Jonathon Simmons.
Nov 18 - 9:30 PM

D.J. Augustin (hamstring) is available against the Jazz on Saturday.

He's back after missing his last seven games. The Magic just had Elfrid Payton come back from a hamstring injury and coach Frank Vogel voiced some concerns about it, so they may not play Augustin much in his return. He did go through practice on Friday, so perhaps he does get minutes in the teens. Shelvin Mack is probably moving out of the rotation soon.

D.J. Augustin (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Magic.

He did go through practice on Friday and has a good chance to return. We should have a reliable update on Augustin either after practice on Friday or following Saturday morning's shootaround. Upon his return, D.J. will replace Shelvin Mack as Elfrid Payton's primary backup.

D.J. Augustin (hamstring) hopes to return to game action on Saturday against the Jazz or Monday against the Pacers

"I’m leaving it up to the training staff on when I could return, but it’s looking like pretty soon," Augustin said. "It’s hard to sit out. But with a hamstring, you want to be careful with it, because it could recur and I don’t want to go backwards." Dating back to when Augustin went down on Nov. 1, Jonathon Simmons has made it clear he can be a ball handler in the second unit. DJA likely won't hurt Simmons, but Shelvin Mack would likely move out of the rotation.
Nov 16 - 3:14 PM

D.J. Augustin (hamstring) is making progress but is unlikely to play Wednesday vs. Portland.

Per Orlando beat reporter John Denton, Augustin was getting shots up after practice and is "getting closer," but will likely sit out at least one more game. After Wednesday, the Magic don't play again until Saturday, so Augustin will have three more days to let his hamstring heal. Shelvin Mack will continue to serve as Elfriid Payton's backup.
Nov 14 - 5:06 PM

D.J. Augustin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game vs. Golden State.

Elfrid Payton (hamstring) is officially questionable but it sounds like he'll be ready to go, which would bump Shelvin Mack to the second unit. Augustin isn't expected to play during Orlando's road trip, so he'll likely get another DNP vs. Portland on Wednesday.
Nov 12 - 7:33 PM

D.J. Augustin is not expected to play in Orlando's four-game road trip.

The trip begins on Friday in Phoenix and ends on Nov. 15, so this rules him out for the next week. "I don’t anticipate that [D.J. can play on the trip]," coach Frank Vogel said. "He’s really just in the mindset that he’s going to continue to try to improve and see how he responds from treatment." The good news for Orlando is that Elfrid Payton returned on Wednesday and looked great, so they will take their time bringing Augustin back. Shelvin Mack will hold down the fort as the backup PG in the meantime.
Nov 9 - 12:57 PM

D.J. Augustin (left hamstring) won't play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

Elfrid Payton (hamstring) is still dealing with soreness in his left hamstring and is questionable for Wednesday. Shelvin Mack is the only healthy point guard on the roster, although Jonathon Simmons has handled point guard responsibilities in each of the Magic's last two games.
Nov 7 - 5:37 PM

Coach Frank Vogel said D.J. Augustin (left hamstring) underwent an MRI on Thursday which revealed a "mild to moderate" strain.

Augustin has already been ruled out of Friday's contest and will likely miss extended time. Elfrid Payton (hamstring) is also out Friday, meaning Shelvin Mack will handle point guard duties. Fortunately for Orlando, the team is hopeful Payton will be able to return to the lineup on Sunday. Feel free to send Augustin to the waiver wire.
Nov 3 - 1:13 PM

D.J. Augustin has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Bulls with a strained left hamstring.

He's likely going to miss action beyond Friday, so he's safe to drop in most leagues. The Magic might be getting Elfrid Payton (hamstring) back on Friday as he's listed as questionable, but Shelvin Mack would be the starter and play heavy minutes if Payton can't go.
Nov 2 - 1:19 PM

D.J. Augustin strained his left hamstring on Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies and will not return.

This is a tough blow for the Magic, especially with Elfrid Payton currently on the shelf with a hamstring injury as well. Payton is said to be nearing a return, but Shelvin Mack would be a lock to see heavy minutes on Friday vs. the Bulls if both Augustin and Payton can't go. Augustin finished with five points, three assists and one steal in 14 minutes.
Nov 1 - 9:14 PM

D.J. Augustin went cold on Sunday with zero points on 0-of-7 shooting, five assists, and no other stats to his credit in 23 minutes.

Augustin was playing with unsustainable efficiency as a fill-in starter and we expected him to cool off, but this was extreme. Elfrid Payton (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans and Augustin's owners should hold tight in the expectation of a bounce-back effort. Orlando plays four games next week, which also gives D.J. some cushion in weekly leagues.
Oct 29 - 9:55 PM

D.J. Augustin scored seven points with three rebounds, six assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

He has been unreal so far and was leading all players in true shooting percentage this year (minimum of 16 minutes per game) coming into tonight. Elfrid Payton (hamstring) is expected to miss at least a few more games, so Augustin could have another week of solid value in standard leagues.
Oct 27 - 9:36 PM

Making his second straight start at point guard, D.J. Augustin kept his foot on the gas with 19 points, six assists, one rebound, three steals and one 3-pointer in Tuesday's win over the Nets.

Augustin played 30 minutes despite picking up his fourth foul early in the third quarter, but coach Frank Vogel had no choice but to ride him down the stretch. He finished a +21 in the four-point win, hitting a perfect 8-of-8 from the line. He was coming off a 12-point, 10-assist double-double in a win over the Cavs on Saturday, and he's a nice fantasy option until Elfrid Payton returns from his hamstring injury.
