Description: Pistons point guard D.J. Augustin started his fourth game of the season and had a day versus the Raptors.
Insight: Augustin scored 35 points, shooting 3-for-5 from the 3-point line. He was 12-of-20 from the field overall and 6-for-6 at the line. Augustin also had eight assists and four rebounds. If he is still available, go pick him up right away.
 
1/25/2015 6:06:00 PM
Description: Pistons point guard D.J. Augustin will start at point guard on Sunday as expected.
Insight: Starting point guard Brandon Jennings went down with a torn Achilles on Saturday, so it appears the point guard job will fall to Augustin for the rest of the season. He is worth picking up in nearly all leagues.
 
1/7/2015 10:49:00 PM
Description: Pistons point guard D.J. Augustin scored 26 points off the bench.
Insight: He went 9-of-16 from the field, 4-of-5 from the line, and 4-of-5 from deep. Augustin is still not worth owning at this moment.
 
Hot11/28/2014 11:40:00 AM
Description: Pistons backup point guard D.J. Augustin could get another start Tuesday with Brandon Jennings dealing with a hyperextended left thumb.
Insight: August has average 15.0 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 6.5 apg as a starter over the past two contests and could be a viable fantasy option if Jennings is sidelined.
 
11/25/2014 11:38:00 AM
Description: Pistons backup point guard D.J. Augustin could get the start Tuesday with Brandon Jennings dealing with a hyperextended left thumb.
Insight: August has average 13.7 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 6.2 apg during his career as a starter and could be a nice play if Jennings is sidelined.
 
7/13/2014 9:56:00 PM
Description: The Pistons have signed veteran point guard D.J. Augustin.
Insight: He signed for two years and $6 million, according to NBA reporter David Aldridge. Augustin averaged 14.9 points, 5.0 assists, and 2.2 threes over 61 games with the Bulls last season after the Raptors got rid of him, but he won't see 30.4 minutes per game as Brandon Jennings' backup. There's going to be a battle for minutes in the Pistons backcourt, as the team added Augustin and Caron Butler to Jennings, Will Bynum, Peyton Siva, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Singler and Jodie Meeks on Sunday.
 
4/14/2014 7:43:00 PM
Description: Bulls point guard D.J. Augustin (personal) will not play Monday against Orlando.

4/14/2014 6:20:00 PM
Description: Bulls point guard D.J. Augustin will be a game-time decision Monday due to personal reasons, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
Insight: Augustin shot just 3-of-13 on Sunday but has averaged 17.6 points on .454 shooting, 4.2 assists and 2.1 rebounds over his last 22 games.

Hot4/9/2014 10:41:00 PM
Description: Bulls point guard D.J. Augustin scored 21 points with four threes Wednesday at Minnesota.

Hot4/5/2014 9:21:00 PM

3/31/2014 9:16:00 AM
Description: Bulls point guard D.J. Augustin blew up for 33 points Sunday in a win against Boston.
Insight: That's a season-high for the 26-year-old. Augustin started the year in Toronto but has been a completely different player since joining Chicago in mid-December. In 53 games filling in for Derrick Rose, Augustin has produced 14.5 ppg and 5.0 apg.
 
3/2/2014 6:54:00 PM
Description: Bulls guard D.J. Augustin scored 23 points with four 3-pointers in 26 minutes Sunday against the Knicks.
Insight: Augustin put up just 6.5 ppg on 18.9 percent shooting his previous four games, but he has averaged 31 minutes, 14.1 points, 5.4 assists, 2.2 threes, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals his last 37 games.
 
Hot1/25/2014 9:29:00 PM
Description: Bulls guard D.J. Augustin has averaged 22.3 ppg over his last four games.
Insight: Augustin had 28 points and six threes Saturday at Charlotte and has shockingly been a very good fantasy option since joining the Bulls. He's unlikely to give up the starting job when Kirk Hinrich returns from a hamstring injury.
 
Hot1/20/2014 10:45:00 PM
Description: Bulls guard D.J. Augustin led the Bulls with 27 points on 10-of-16 shooting over 37 minutes Monday against the Lakers. Kirk Hinrich also suffered a right hamstring strain during the game, so we could see Augustin get even more playing time.
Insight: Seeing a productive Augustin seemed impossible after he shot 35 percent for the Pacers last year and 29.2 percent with Toronto earlier this season, but the guard has come up with 13.4 ppg, 6.4 apg, 1.4 spg and 2.1 3pg in his last 18 contests. That includes averages of 18 points, 7.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.7 threes per game over his last six games.
 
Hot1/18/2014 11:55:00 AM

Insight: Augustin has posted double-digit points in three of the past four games and is averaging a season's best 12.5 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 6.4 apg in January
 
Hot1/15/2014 10:32:00 PM

Insight: After terrible stints with the Pacers and Raptors, Augustin has reestablished himself in Chicago by recording 11.9 points, 6.7 assists, 1.7 threes and 1.3 steals per game in his last 15 games.
 
Hot1/12/2014 9:17:00 AM
Description: Tony Snell started, but Bulls shooting guard Jimmy Butler's absence Saturday night was most beneficial to D.J. Augustin, who played 35 minutes and had 20 points and 12 assists against the Bobcats.
Insight: After terrible stints with the Pacers and Raptors, Augustin has been successful during his stay with the Bulls. In his last 13 games, he has averaged 31 minutes, 11.8 points, 6.5 assists, 2.1 rebounds, 1.7 threes and 1.4 steals.
 
Hot12/21/2013 10:47:00 PM
Description: Bulls point guard D.J. Augustin had 18 points, 10 assists, two steals and four threes in 46 minutes Saturday against the Cavaliers.
Insight: Augustin was awful as a backup with the Pacers last season and lasted just 10 games with Toronto before being waived this year. However, with Derrick Rose and Kirk Hinrich on the shelf, Augustin has received big minutes over the last four games and has put up 13.8 ppg. 8.0 apg, 1.5 spg and 2.8 3pg in that span.
