Augustin will come off the pine for Saturday's tilt against the Wizards, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Frank Vogel continues to switch up his starting five in the wake of the team's myriad of injuries. Over the past six games, Augustin has averaged 9.5 points and 2.5 assists.

Augustin will draw the start at shooting guard for Friday's game against the Pelicans, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Magic continue to be derailed by injuries, with Frank Vogel often switching up his starting five to help compensate. Over the past three games, Augustin has posted 13.3 points across 28.7 minutes per game, so his role is unlikely to change much despite drawing the start.

Augustin (quad) played 27 minutes in Saturday's 110-117 loss to the Hawks, finishing with eight points (2-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, seven assists and three steals.

EDGE Analysis

Augustin came into Saturday with a questionable designation because of a quad injury, but ended up playing through it and logged 27 minutes. That workload suggests the injury is no longer giving Augustin discomfort, so he should be good to go moving forward. That said, Augustin largely struggled on the offensive side of the ball, hitting just 25 percent of his field goal attempts and 20 percent of his three-pointers, so he'll look to lock back in ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Clippers.

Augustin is nursing a quad injury and is questionable for Saturday's game against the Hawks, Dante Marchitelli of Fox Sports Florida reports.

EDGE Analysis

Augustin likely suffered the injury during the first portion of the Magic's back-to-back set Friday against the Nuggets. The team is dealing with backcourt injuries to Evan Fournier (ankle) and Terrance Ross (knee), making Augustin's health especially important, as he can play some shooting guard when needed. More word on Augustin's status should emerge as the team ramps up their activity leading up to tipoff. If he's ultimately unable to take the floor, Arron Afflalo and Mario Hezonja are two candidates to see extended run.

Augustin (hamstring) returned from a seven-game absence to play 17 minutes in Saturday's 125-85 loss to the Jazz. He failed to score a point (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and added one rebound and one assist while turning the ball over twice.

EDGE Analysis

Per Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, Augustin said after the contest that he's still working his way back into playing shape following the two-and-a-half-week layoff due to the left hamstring strain, which may explain the veteran's poor showing in his first game back. Augustin had previously hit double figures in the scoring column in three of the Magic's first four games, but he benefited from upticks in playing time in those contests with starting point guard Elfrid Payton missing two of those contests due to an injury of his own. With Payton having returned to action Nov. 8 and taken back control of the starting role, Augustin likely won't be in line for a dramatic boost in minutes from the 17 he received Saturday.

Augustin (hamstring) will be available to play during Saturday's game against the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

Augustin missed the team's past seven games while nursing a strained left hamstring. The goal was to have him back by Monday, but he's beaten that timetable. He'll seemingly resume his usual role as a reserve point guard behind starter Elfrid Payton.

Augustin (hamstring) said that he hopes to play either Saturday against the Jazz or Monday against the Pacers, Josh Robbins of The Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Augustin has missed the last seven games with a strained left hamstring, but it looks like the point guard is nearing full healthy headed into the weekend. Upon his return, Augustin is expected to take over as the team's primary point guard behind Elfrid Payton, which would likely send Shelvin Mack back to a very limited role off the bench.

Augustin (hamstring) is confirmed to be sitting out Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Augustin was fully expected to miss the entirety of the Magic's four-game road trip, so with Wednesday's contest marking the last contest of that trip, it comes as no surprise he'll be held out once again. That said, Augustin was reportedly putting up shots with athletic trainers following Tuesday's practice and appears to be making good progress in his recovery. Augustin will have another three days off for rest and recovery before his next opportunity to return on Friday vs. the Jazz.

Augustin (hamstring) is not expected to play during the team's upcoming four-game road trip, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. "I don't anticipate that [D.J. can play on the trip]," coach Frank Vogel said. "He's really just in the mindset that he's going to continue to try to improve and see how he responds from treatment."

EDGE Analysis

Augustin originally suffered a mild-to-moderate hamstring strain on Nov. 1 against Memphis and while he's had a full week of rest and recovery, he's still dealing with some discomfort. Look for Augustin to miss the next four games while undergoing additional treatment, which would make his next opportunity to return a Nov. 18 matchup against Utah. Elfrid Payton returned from a hamstring injury of his own on Wednesday, posting 11 points, six rebounds, 11 assists and two steals across 29 minutes. He should continue to get the bulk of the point guard workload moving forward, with Shelvin Mack and Jonathon Simmons filling Augustin's minutes off the bench.

Augustin (hamstring) will remain out for Wednesday's game against the Knicks, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Augustin remains without any sort of timetable for a return, as he continues to work back from what was originally listed as a mild-to-moderate hamstring strain. Elfrid Payton (hamstring) is nearing a return and is questionable for Wednesday's contest, but if he also ends up sitting out, look for Jonathon Simmons to get extended run at point guard, while Shelvin Mack would see a larger workload as well.
