Augustin turned in 21 points (6-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes in Monday's 140-129 loss to the Trail Blazers. Although Augustin started at point guard, he acted more like an off-the-ball shooter than a floor general, as he ceded half-court ball-handling duties to Jae'Sean Tate fairly often. He was easily the most accurate shooter for the Rockets in the loss. Augustin's tenure in Houston has breathed new life into his NBA career, but his future role with the team is still unclear.
Augustin tallied 17 points (6-14 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five assists and two rebounds in 28 minutes during Friday's 141-133 loss to the Bucks. The 33-year-old drew the start Friday with only eight Rockets players available and delivered a decent line in the most minutes he's seen since Feb. 19. Augustin should continue starting as long as Kevin Porter (ankle) is out of the lineup. Whether he starts or comes off the bench, the 13-year guard should see plenty of minutes in the short term for the injury-ravaged Rockets.
Augustin will draw the start at point guard against the Bucks on Friday, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Augustin will be one of eight Rockets players available, so he will see his fair share of minutes versus his former team. He came into the game with an ankle issue but was ultimately cleared to play.
Augustin (ankle) is available for Friday's contest against the Bucks, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports. Augustin is one of eight Rockets players available for Friday's game. Assuming he's not just ceremoniously being deemed healthy to allow the game to be played, Augustin could see significant minutes.
Augustin (ankle) is questionable for Friday's contest against the Bucks. Augustin suited up for Wednesday's game against the 76ers but wasn't expected to play. It's possible the same will happen Friday.
