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.

The veteran point guard missed a string of 11 games from April 14 through May 4, but it appears that he's set to return to the court Wednesday night.

Augustin (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against Philadelphia, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Augustin (ankle) remains without a return timetable, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Augustin is nursing what's apparently a severely sprained left ankle, and he's yet to be cleared to participate in practice. The Rockets said Monday that Augustin is "progressing," and the hope at this point is that he'll be able to get back on the floor before the end of the regular season.

The veteran point guard will watch the remainder of this game from the sideline after suffering the injury during the first half. Before departing, Augustin played three minutes and supplied zero points (0-1 FG), one assist and one turnover.
Augustin is averaging 10.1 points, 4.2 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.3 three-pointers in 20.6 minutes per game over his 10 appearances since being traded to the Rockets on March 17.
Augustin has settled in nicely as Houston's backup point guard, playing behind either John Wall (knee) or Kevin Porter in any given game. Given that Wall has missed four straight games and could be a shutdown candidate for the noncontending Rockets, Augustin's role should remain fairly stable moving forward. While he doesn't produce enough across the board to warrant much attention outside of deeper leagues, Augustin is useful in shallower formats as an assists streamer.
Augustin posted eight points (1-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), one assist and one steal in Friday's loss to the Celtics.
Augustin had been on a mini-tear, by veteran point guard standards, entering Friday, having scored in double figures in four straight games, while adding 4.3 assists and 3.0 rebounds in that span. He struggled badly from the field in the loss, however, hitting just one of his eight field goal attempts in 19 minutes. Houston could eventually shelve Augustin in favor of younger players, but the Rockets don't have a ton of options at point guard, so for now he looks to be set in 15-to-20-minute role off the bench.
Augustin (illness) will be available for Monday's game against Toronto, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
After missing Sunday's game against OKC, Augustin will suit up for the second time since coming over from Milwaukee via trade last week. With John Wall on a minutes limit and Kevin Porter Jr. (quad) sidelined, Augustin could be set for a slight increase in role off the bench.
Augustin (illness) is listed as probable for Monday's game against Toronto, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
A stomach ailment kept Augustin out of Sunday's loss to the Thunder, but he'll have a good chance to return to the rotation as the Rockets finish out the back-to-back set. The veteran played 20 minutes off the bench and finished with seven points, three assists and three boards in his Rockets debut Friday against Detroit.
Augustin (illness) is out for Sunday's game against the Thunder, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.
Augustin will sit out Sunday's game due to a non-COVID-19-related illness, making him eligible to return as early as Monday's tilt against the Raptors. In his debut for the Rockets on Friday, Augustin scored seven points in 20 minutes.
Augustin (not injury related) will be available to make his Rockets debut Friday against the Pistons, Ben DuBose of USA Today reports.
It's not clear what type of role the veteran point guard will have on the team, so fantasy managers shouldn't expect Augustin to be a staple of the rotation. Ultimately, his fantasy value will likely decrease in Houston.
Augustin was traded to the Rockets on Wednesday, along with D.J. Wilson and a 2023 first-round pick, in exchange for P.J. Tucker and Rodions Kurucs, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Augustin is mostly filler in the deal, as Tucker is the real prize for the Bucks, who are looking to load up for another postseason run. The veteran guard never quite found his footing in Milwaukee, shooting just 37.0 percent from the field and averaging 6.1 points and 3.0 assists across 37 appearances. He certainly doesn't fit with the Rockets' timeline, so it's possible Houston could re-route or buy out the veteran before the deadline.
Augustin recorded five points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three assists and one rebound during Monday's win over Washington.
Augustin wasn't a factor in this one, as the veteran logged just 13 minutes off the bench and finished as a minus-two in point differential. Since returning to a bench role, Augustin is averaging 6.3 points and 2.3 assists over the past three games.
