D.J. Augustin News
Houston Rockets point guard D.J. Augustin (health and safety protocols) has been deemed unavailable for Monday's game against Oklahoma City. Augustin has been sparsely utilized off the bench for the Rockets, who have prioritized development during the early portion of what has been a trying season. With Augustin joining Jalen Green (hamstring) on the sidelines, Kevin Porter Jr. stands to see an even more sizable role as the team's court general, upping his DFS intrigue. Having scored in double figures just once this season, Augustin can remain on the waiver wire in all season-long formats. His next chance to return to action comes Wednesday in a rematch vs. the Thunder.
Houston Rockets guard D.J. Augustin (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Rockets rest the veteran guard here. They aren't playing for much, so they have no incentive to play their veterans throughout the rest of the season. Kevin Porter Jr. has looked fantastic lately and the absence of Augustin would only boost his playing time.
Power forward/center D.J. Wilson and point guard D.J. Augustin have been traded to the Houston Rockets in a four-player swap that was completed Wednesday. Wilson is the more tantalizing of the two due to his age (25) and athleticism for a team that is lacking current frontcourt depth. Augustin appeared in 37 games (six starts) with Milwaukee this season and averaged 6.1 points and 3.0 assists per contest. While he could stick with Houston as they sort out injuries to their backcourt, he stands out as a possible buyout candidate. The Rockets also acquired Milwaukee's 2023 unprotected first-round Draft selection in the deal.
Milwaukee Bucks guard D.J. Augustin will start Friday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Bucks are on a five-game losing streak and need to make some changes while Jrue Holiday (health and safety protocols) is still out. Augustin will push Bryn Forbes to the bench who was serviceable as a three-pointer streamer. Augustin could be worth a look with two games left this week and would be a low-end option for assists.
