D. J. Augustin PG CHI 12 Hrs
D.J. Augustin hit 6-of-16 shots and three 3-pointers to score 17 points off the bench, which led the Bulls in a tough loss to the Bobcats on Wednesday.
The Bulls' starters (Kirk Hinrich, Jimmy Butler, Mike Dunleavy, Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah) all played heavy minutes in a serious effort to win this game, but all of them scored between 11 and 14 points in the overtime loss. The Bulls finish as the No. 4 seed and will likely face the Wizards in Round 1, who are up 17 on the Celtics currently.

D.J. Augustin (personal) will not play against the Magic on Monday.
He'll be with his family tonight for the birth of their baby boy. Augustin should be considered questionable for Monday's finale to put a bow on a surprisingly effective season. Expect Kirk Hinrich and Mike Dunleavy to step up tonight.

D.J. Augustin (personal) is a game-time call against the Magic on Monday.
He is not at the arena yet and there is not much information right now on his status. Considering he's still not there for an 8:00 game, Augustin could wind up sitting out. If he's out, Kirk Hinrich should get more while Mike Dunleavy could play more due to the Bulls going with less two-PG lineups.

D.J. Augustin scored a team-high 24 points vs. the Pistons on Friday with four boards, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.
He was 9-of-10 from the line and is doing much better at getting his points from there. That's a big reason why he's scored at least 21 points in four of his last six games and he's become of the best offensive bench guards in the NBA. Augustin is a must-start player in fantasy formats.

D.J. Augustin scored a game-high 25 points against the Wizards on Saturday with four boards, four assists, two steals and six 3-pointers in 30 minutes.
He continues to hang big scoring lines on opponents and is a big reason why the Bulls rank eighth in the NBA for bench points per game since the All-Star break. Augustin's output in 3-pointers makes him a must-own player in standard formats.

D.J. Augustin followed up his career best 33-point effort on Sunday with just four points on 1-of-9 shooting on Monday, but still handed out 11 assists to smooth things out with owners.
Augustin did not hit a three and like most nights he didn't have a steal or block, but he has been a top-100 player over the last two weeks and should be in most lineups.

D.J. Augustin set a new career high with 33 points on 10-of-14 FGs and 10-of-10 FTs vs. the Celtics on Sunday, hitting three 3-pointers to go along with three assists and one steal.
Augustin played only 31 minutes and he continues to shine in a reserve role, having missed double-digit points just one time all month. Anyone seeking help with scoring, assists and FT percentage should look no further, and his value in nine-cat leagues is strengthened by a stingy 1.1 turnovers per game over the past month.

D.J. Augustin did not make any 3-pointers against the Pacers on Monday with four points, one board and three assists in 28 minutes.
It's the first time he's failed to crack double-digit scoring this month, which is pretty impressive for a guy coming off the bench. Augustin put up averages of 17.8 points, 3.6 dimes, 0.3 steals and 2.2 triples on 47.1 percent from the field, so his fantasy owners should have no complaints about tonight's dud against a great Indiana defense.
