Augustin contributed four points (2-10 FG, 0-5 3Pt), five assists, two steals and one rebound in the Bucks' 128-115 victory over the Kings on Sunday.
Augustin got his second-straight start with Jrue Holiday (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) out of the lineup for the eighth-straight game. Bryn Forbes had been starting for Holiday, but after a five-game losing streak, the Bucks turned to Augustin on Friday and then again Sunday. The veteran guard really struggled to get shots to fall, failing to make a three after making three triples in back-to-back games prior. Augustin provides the Bucks with another playmaker when he's on the floor and should collect a decent amount of assists when given the opportunity. Look for Augustin to also shoot the ball better next time out, as he is shooting 35.5 percent from distance this season.
Augustin finished with 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt) five assists, two rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes during Friday's 98-85 victory over the Thunder.
Augustin shifted into the starting lineup and came away with a serviceable fantasy line. While this was nice for those who may have streamed him in, the long-term aspect is basically non-existent. Augustin can be a sneaky source of assists and threes and so if we get word that he is going to be given another start, perhaps he emerges as a potential streaming candidate once again.
Augustin will draw the start in Friday's game against the Thunder, freelance basketball reporter Kane Pitman replace.
Augustin will replace Bryn Forbes in the starting lineup, as the Bucks look to switch things up in the backcourt. The start will mark his first of the season.

Augustin couldn't generate much output on the scoreboard Sunday, but he recorded a season-high seven assists over 22 minutes in the loss. The 33-year-old has been part of the Bucks' rotation recently, but he's had very inconsistent production in his bench role.
Augustin recorded 13 points (4-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six assists, five rebounds and one steal across 18 minutes Monday in the Bucks' 134-106 win over the Trail Blazers.
Augustin established new season highs in points, rebounds and assists, benefiting from the extra playing time he was afforded by the blowout nature of the contest. This sort of production likely won't be replicable in competitive situations, as Augustin only averaged 11.0 minutes per contest over the Bucks' previous four games, all of which were decided by 14 points or fewer.
Augustin tallied two points (0-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) across 19 minutes during Monday's 125-123 loss to the Nets.
Augustin couldn't get anything to fall as he went scoreless for the third time through 13 games played this season. The 33-year-old guard hasn't thrived with his new team in Milwaukee, as he is shooting just 32.8 percent from the floor across 18.5 minutes per game in his backup role.
Augustin is shooting just 32 percent from the field and 35.3 percent from three-point range over his last five games.
Augustin has not scored more than eight points in a single game since putting up 11 points on Jan. 4 against the Pistons, and part of that can be accredited to his shooting woes. He is averaging 4.0 assists per game during that same stretch, but Augustin needs to find a way to re-discover his shooting touch sooner than later. He is shooting just 35.7 percent from the field in 2020-21 and that'd rank as his second-worst mark for a single season throughout his career.
Augustin had 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-3 3Pt), six assists and one rebound during a 125-115 win over Detroit on Monday.
Considering he was scoreless across 19 minutes on Jan. 1, Augustin's second game of 2021 proved to be an immense improvement. He last recorded a 10-point, five-assist game in the bubble and has seen his fantasy value limited since then. Augustin is only averaging 6.5 points and 2.2 assists through six games for Milwaukee.

Augustin (calf) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Eric Woodyard of ESPN reports.

Augustin (calf) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's season opener at Boston.

The veteran is dealing with a strained calf, which kept him out of the preseason finale Friday. He was able to go through parts of practice Tuesday, and he'll join the team in Boston, but Augustin's status for Opening Night likely won't be determined until after shootaround Wednesday morning.

Augustin and the Bucks have come to terms on a three-year, $21 million deal, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Augustin should help provide depth in the backcourt right way for the Bucks. He figures to essentially fill the role George Hill played with Milwaukee last season.

He also shot 38.8 percent from beyond the arc during that time.

Augustin had a miserable shooting night, though he still managed to score in double digits thanks to a stellar night from the charity stripe. He's shooting just 13.7 percent from the field in the playoffs but has still averaged 10.5 points per game, thanks in large part to those free throws.
Augustin had 11 points (3-11 FG, 1-4 3PT, 4-4 FT) and 11 assists off the bench in Tuesday's Game 1 win over Milwaukee.

Augustin went for 22 points (7-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six assists and four rebounds in 22 minutes off the bench during Thursday's win over the Pelicans.
Although he came off Orlando's bench in the regular-season finale, the veteran turned out his best scoring output since play resumed -- and just his fifth effort of 20-plus points this season. The veteran point guard ends the 2019-20 regular season having averaged 10.5 points, 4.6 assists and 2.1 rebounds in 24.9 minutes per game across 57 appearances, but it remains to be seen whether he or Markelle Fultz will start in the upcoming playoff series against the Bucks.
