Augustin will come off the pine for Saturday's tilt against the Wizards, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Coach Frank Vogel continues to switch up his starting five in the wake of the team's myriad of injuries. Over the past six games, Augustin has averaged 9.5 points and 2.5 assists.
Augustin will draw the start at shooting guard for Friday's game against the Pelicans, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. The Magic continue to be derailed by injuries, with Frank Vogel often switching up his starting five to help compensate. Over the past three games, Augustin has posted 13.3 points across 28.7 minutes per game, so his role is unlikely to change much despite drawing the start.
Augustin (quad) played 27 minutes in Saturday's 110-117 loss to the Hawks, finishing with eight points (2-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, seven assists and three steals. Augustin came into Saturday with a questionable designation because of a quad injury, but ended up playing through it and logged 27 minutes. That workload suggests the injury is no longer giving Augustin discomfort, so he should be good to go moving forward. That said, Augustin largely struggled on the offensive side of the ball, hitting just 25 percent of his field goal attempts and 20 percent of his three-pointers, so he'll look to lock back in ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Clippers.
Augustin is nursing a quad injury and is questionable for Saturday's game against the Hawks, Dante Marchitelli of Fox Sports Florida reports. Augustin likely suffered the injury during the first portion of the Magic's back-to-back set Friday against the Nuggets. The team is dealing with backcourt injuries to Evan Fournier (ankle) and Terrance Ross (knee), making Augustin's health especially important, as he can play some shooting guard when needed. More word on Augustin's status should emerge as the team ramps up their activity leading up to tipoff. If he's ultimately unable to take the floor, Arron Afflalo and Mario Hezonja are two candidates to see extended run.
Augustin (hamstring) returned from a seven-game absence to play 17 minutes in Saturday's 125-85 loss to the Jazz. He failed to score a point (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and added one rebound and one assist while turning the ball over twice. Per Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, Augustin said after the contest that he's still working his way back into playing shape following the two-and-a-half-week layoff due to the left hamstring strain, which may explain the veteran's poor showing in his first game back. Augustin had previously hit double figures in the scoring column in three of the Magic's first four games, but he benefited from upticks in playing time in those contests with starting point guard Elfrid Payton missing two of those contests due to an injury of his own. With Payton having returned to action Nov. 8 and taken back control of the starting role, Augustin likely won't be in line for a dramatic boost in minutes from the 17 he received Saturday.
