Re: Fantasy Basketball News, Notes, and Tidbits *Statman32 style*
D.J. Augustin, PG/SG, Charlotte Bobcats -
With Raja Bells recent wrist injury, Augustins value jumps up from borderline late round draft pick to must have fantasy starter. This second-year guard proved last year that he could be a very good fantasy contributer when given the minutes and while he will hurt you in fg% will contribute great ft%/points/threes/steals and decent assists/steals.
Augustin as starter last year: (12 games)
17.8 pts/2.4 reb/5.6 ast/46.7 fg%/87.2 ft%/2.6 threes/1.1 stl/2.1 to in 38.5 mpg
While I dont think he will be that good, look for something like 16/5/2 with 2 threes/44fg%/87ft%/2.1 to/1.1 steals until Bell returns which is a unknown right now. Beware of inconsistency as 1 day he might put up 26 pts but the next night 10 pts.
