D.J. Augustin (rest) will not play on Friday against the Pacers.
Elfrid Payton should get a few extra minutes. Augustin has played well for the Magic and he'll be a very important part of their second unit. When he's hot, it's not too wild to think he closes out games over Payton. Oct 14 - 5:29 PM

D.J. Augustin earned his second straight start at PG for the Magic, finishing Wednesday's loss with six points (0-of-3 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs) and four assists in 18 minutes.

The veteran PG signed a four-year, $29 million deal this summer. He'll serve as Elfrid Payton's backup but has begun the preseason as a starter while Payton rehabs a strained left hip flexor. Augustin hasn't been a top-100 fantasy value since the 2010-11 season with Charlotte, which says plenty about his lack of appeal.
Oct 5 - 9:30 PM

D.J. Augustin's deal with the Magic is for $29 million over four years.

Augustin played well after a mid-season trade to the Nuggets, averaging 11.6 points, 4.7 assists, 1.9 boards, 0.9 steals and 1.6 3-pointers in 28 appearances. He will likely back up Elfrid Payton in Orlando, but his arrival should push C.J. Watson out of the rotation. Augustin is only on the radar in deeper fantasy leagues for now.

D.J. Augustin has reached an agreement on a deal with the Magic.

The Magic get their backup point guard early. Augustin is actually a really nice complement to Elfrid Payton, making 40.5 percent from beyond the arc last season. The Magic could also use him in two-guard lineups. Augustin is still just 28 years old and should be looking at minutes close to 20. He's only an option in deeper fantasy leagues.

D.J. Augustin would like to re-sign with the Denver Nuggets.

Augustin will be in demand as a backup point guard this summer after averaging 11.7 points and 4.7 assists off the bench with Denver. "I was in a tough situation in Oklahoma," Augustin said. "It wasn't working out. I did the right thing, my agent did the right thing, and talked to those guys and they were kind enough to trade me, trade me to a good situation. Everything worked out." We'll keep an eye on Augustin's free agency destination, but his fantasy value is limited to deeper leagues as he's unlikely to find a starting job.

D.J. Augustin continued to fade on Sunday with just two points, one rebound and one assist in 18 minutes of action.

Augustin made a pair of free throws but was 0-of-2 from the field, and his role has been pinched with Denver giving unlimited minutes to Emmanuel Mudiay (19 points, five assists, three 3-pointers). There are better free agents available on the waiver wire, especially since Denver has just one game left in their season.
Apr 10 - 7:34 PM

D.J. Augustin came off the bench for 15 points, two rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes on Tuesday.

This was DJA's best game in recent memory, meaning he's far from a must-own, must-start fantasy player right now.
Apr 6 - 12:35 AM

D.J. Augustin finally cooled off in Monday's loss to Dallas, scoring just four points with three assists, three boards and three turnovers in 16 minutes.

He simply didn't play well tonight, but his owners should give him a pass. He was averaging 15.8 points, 6.2 assists, 2.0 boards, 1.4 steals and 2.4 treys in his previous five games on 47.9 percent shooting, so he should be much better vs. the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Mar 29 - 12:06 AM

D.J. Augustin double-doubled off the bench during Sunday's loss to the Clippers, registering 18 points, 10 assists, three 3-pointers, two rebounds, two steals and two turnovers in 34 minutes.

Augustin has been fantastic in Denver, putting in averages of 13.4 points, 5.2 assists and 2.0 triples in 25.1 minutes off the bench. That’s been good enough for ninth-round value in 9-cat leagues, and eighth-round value in 8-cat leagues. The Nuggets play four games next week, so if you’re seeking a low-end point guard, DJA is worth a look.
Mar 27 - 6:31 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 20 points with three rebounds, eight assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Lakers on Friday.

How much are the Lakers going to pay him this summer? Kidding aside, Augustin torched them for a season-high 26 points in the last game and is playing great. He's worth owning in standard leagues while he's hot like this.
Mar 26 - 1:49 AM

Nuggets coach Michael Malone said that D.J. Augustin is his team's "security blanket."

"D.J.'s our security blanket," Malone said. "He's won games for us. Put the ball into his hands in the fourth quarter and he steps up, makes shots, hits free throws and always makes the right play." Augustin has been awesome since arriving in Denver and is averaging 14.0 points, 5.6 assists, 2.0 boards, 1.4 steals and 1.6 3-pointers in 27.2 minutes over his last five games. He's worth owning in standard leagues while he's hot.

D.J. Augustin was superb off the bench against the Hornets during a 101-93 win on Saturday, scoring 24 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

He played nine minutes next to Emmanuel Mudiay and carried his team to a big road win. If Kenneth Faried (back) does miss more action, Augustin is going to benefit because the Nuggets go small. He's actually had some nice consistency in his last five, averaging 16.6 points, 1.8 rebounds, 6.2 dimes, 1.4 steals and 1.8 treys. He's worth a look in standard leagues for owners needing a scoring point guard.
Mar 19 - 9:01 PM

D.J. Augustin scored a team-high 17 points vs. the Hawks on Thursday, shooting 7-of-12 from the field.

The first unit was getting torched by the Hawks, so coach Michael Malone turned to his second unit for most of the game. Augustin added seven assists, one board, one block and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes, and he's been making some noise off the bench for a while now. Malone isn't afraid to deploy him next to Emmanuel Mudiay, so Augustin is worth a look for any owner in need of a guard while he's playing this well. Mudiay scored 12 points with two boards and two assists in 23 minutes.
Mar 17 - 11:35 PM

D.J. Augustin played 33 minutes and hit just 2-of-9 shots, but still finished with 12 points, four rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss.

DJA is cooking while backing up Emmanuel Mudiay over the last few weeks and is averaging 11.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five. If you need a point guard in a deep league, he's probably available. Mudiay started and had 14 points, four assists and two 3-pointers tonight.
Mar 15 - 9:46 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 13 points with one rebound, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Heat on Monday.

While Emmanuel Mudiay is really playing well, Augustin is still getting some minutes at combo guard. He played 10 minutes next to Mudiay in this game and a total of 39 in his last five. In those games, he averaged 11.2 points, 2.4 boards, 5.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.4 treys on 39.1 percent from the field. He's more of a deep-league point guard right now.
