The Pistons and Magic have discussed a trade that would send D.J. Augustin and Jeff Green to Detroit for Reggie Jackson, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
He was signed to a four-year, $29 million deal last year, so this wouldn't be about his contract. Everyone knows coach Stan Van Gundy likes his point guards to be able to shoot, so Augustin fits that bill. He could potentially get more minutes, but he's still not worth picking up unless you're cutting something you won't miss. DJA is 29 years old. Feb 17 - 2:57 PM

D.J. Augustin played 24 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday with nine points, three rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers.

Up until 26 seconds left, he closed out as the shooting guard tonight with C.J. Watson next to him. The move of C.J. Watson to the point should hurt Augustin more often than not as he will have to play off the ball even more. He's not really worth owning in most leagues regardless.
Feb 9 - 9:54 PM

D.J. Augustin hit 7-of-10 shots for a season-high 21 points with three assists, two rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes on Sunday against the Raptors.

It was his second game back from a one game absence due to an ankle injury and he appeared to have no lingering effects. With Evan Fournier (foot) out, Augustin saw some extra run. However, Fournier is getting closer to returning, which will impact Augustin.
Jan 29 - 10:14 PM

D.J. Augustin returned after missing one game, finishing with six points, one rebound, four assists and one turnover in 18 minutes during a bad loss to the Celtics on Friday.

He would've played a lot more had this game been close. Coach Frank Vogel has been using Augustin at both guard spots and he was playing 31.0 minutes per game in his two previous games before the injury. Some of his value in deep leagues is tied to Evan Fournier (foot), so there's no need to grab DJA right now with Fournier getting closer.

D.J. Augustin (ankle) will play Friday vs. the Celtics.

Augustin ends up missing just one game due to an ankle sprain. D.J. will eat into Elfrid Payton's minutes, which makes Payton less appealing in DFS. Elf played a team-high 38 minutes on Tuesday. Augustin was averaging 24.4 minutes per game in his previous eight games off the bench prior to the ankle injury.
Jan 27 - 6:12 PM

D.J. Augustin (sprained right ankle) went through parts of practice and is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

Augustin injured the ankle last Sunday and did not plat Tuesday. Elfrid Payton played 38 minutes on Tuesday. C.J. Watson played 23 minutes off the bench. Expect both players to see extended minutes on Friday as well is D.J. is sidelined.
Jan 27 - 1:04 PM

D.J. Augustin (sprained right ankle) did some non-contact work at Thursday's practice.

He's day-to-day and is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Celtics. Augustin missed Tuesday's game vs. the Bulls and the Magic gave Elfrid Payton 38 minutes while C.J. Watson saw 23 minutes as a combo guard off the bench. Expect more of the same on Friday if Augustin is unable to go.
Jan 26 - 1:23 PM

D.J. Augustin (sprained right ankle) has ben ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Bulls.

Elfrid Payton will start and play extended minutes on Tuesday. He makes for an intruding DFS play, as he's the only pure PG available for the Magic. C.J. Watson will also see additional playing time. In addition, with Evan Fournier (foot) missing another game, Mario Hezonja could see extra minutes off the bench as well.
Jan 24 - 5:27 PM

The MRI results on D.J. Augustin's sprained right ankle came back clean, and he's expected to be listed as day-to-day moving forward.

Augustin might not be able to play Tuesday against the Bulls, but it doesn't sound like he's going to be forced into a lengthy absence here. If Augustin can't play Tuesday, Elfrid Payton will be forced into heavy minutes and Mario Hezonja could see some extended run with the second unit. Stay tuned.
Jan 23 - 7:01 PM

D.J. Augustin (ankle) will undergo an MRI on Monday.

He's walking "gingerly" without the use of crutches, but we should get an update on his timetable later this evening. For now, it sounds like he's closer to doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Bulls. If Augustin misses time, Elfrid Payton and C.J. Watson will log heavy minutes in the backcourt and coach Frank Vogel may finally have no choice but to give Mario Hezonja some burn.
Jan 23 - 1:19 PM

D.J. Augustin (ankle) will not return to Sunday's game vs. the Warriors.

X-rays were negative and the Magic are calling the injury a right ankle sprain. Augustin was able to walk gingerly under his own power to the locker room, so hopefully it's not too serious. He finished with zero points, one assist and one rebound in five minutes. Elfrid Payton and C.J. Watson will log a ton of minutes the rest of the game and we may see more of Mario Hezonja as well.
Jan 22 - 12:55 PM

D.J. Augustin (ankle) was forced to go to the locker room on Sunday vs. the Warriors.

He stepped on Bismack Biyombo's foot and appeared to sprain his right ankle. He walked gingerly to the locker room under his own power and should be considered questionable to return. If he's out, Elfrid Payton and C.J. Watson will soak up a ton of minutes.
Jan 22 - 12:47 PM

D.J. Augustin scored 10 points with eight assists, two rebounds and a 3-pointer in 28 minutes in Friday's win over the Bucks.

With Jodie Meeks (thumb) and Evan Fournier (heel, foot) out, we could see a lot more two-PG lineups going forward. That means a boost in minutes for Augustin (28), Elfrid Payton (37) and C.J. Watson (31). Augustin doesn't have great upside and finished just 3-of-9 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, but he's a decent pickup in deeper leagues if you need short-term value.
Jan 20 - 10:52 PM

D.J. Augustin played 28 minutes off the bench vs. L.A. on Sunday, scoring six points on 1-of-6 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs with a game-high eight assists, five rebounds and one 3-pointer.

The veteran logged more minutes than Elfrid Payton (nine points in 19 minutes) for the second straight game. He was a negligible fantasy option even while starting, and the past two games feel like 'hot hand' flukes, so we're not biting on D.J. as a fantasy pickup.
Jan 9 - 1:37 AM

D.J. Augustin scored a team-high 19 points against the Rockets on Friday, adding one rebound, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

The bench role has been better for DJA, but this game is clearly a fluke. Augustin is not worth owning in standard leagues.
