Augustin racked up 24 points (7-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT) off the bench in Sunday's win over Houston, adding two rebounds, three assists and a steal. Augustin was one of three Magic players to score at least 16 points off the bench on a night when the team combined to shoot 48.4 percent from the field and 44.8 percent from three (13-for-29). He's warmed up significantly over the last couple games, as he put up 18 points Friday; over his prior seven contests since returning from a knee injury, he'd averaged just 5.1 points per game.
Augustin had 18 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 9-11 FT), five assists and three rebounds in 27 minutes during Friday's 132-118 victory over Minnesota. Augustin had his best game since returning from injury and it comes as no surprise, given the absence of Evan Fournier (elbow). With Fournier likely to miss multiple games, Augustin could see his role increase to a point where he can be considered in 12-team leagues. He doesn't offer a lot of upside, although if you need a cheap source of points and assists, you could certainly do a lot worse.
Augustin (knee) played 16 minutes off the bench and finished with zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound and one steal in Friday's 122-106 loss to the Mavericks. Augustin was back in action for the Magic's first game of the second half after missing the previous 15 contests with a left knee injury. The veteran immediately seized the top backup role behind starting point guard Markelle Fultz, but his production left much to be desired. Augustin should be better than this in future games once he's further removed from the injury, but he's unlikely to see enough of a boost in his playing time to make for a reliable fantasy option outside of deeper leagues.
Augustin (knee) is available for Friday's game against the Mavericks, Dante Marchitelli of Fox Sports Florida reports. The veteran point guard has been sidelined since Jan. 23 due to bone irritation in his left knee, but he'll make his return to the court coming out of the All-Star break. Augustin is averaging 10.7 points, 2.4 rebounds and 4.7 assists over 26.0 minutes in 39 games, but he seems likely to see more limited minutes Friday given the month-long absence.
Augustin (knee) is questionable for Friday's game against the Mavericks. Augustin has been sidelined since Jan. 15 due to left knee bone irritation, but it's possible he makes his return in the Magic's first game out of the All-Star break. More information on his status may arrive following Orlando's Friday morning shootaround.
