SVG fine with D.J. Augustin replacing Jennings in Pistons' lineup
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1:16 pm ET) After watching guard D.J. Augustin pour in 35 points Sunday against the Raptors, coach Stan Van Gundy said Tuesday he is comfortable with Augustin remaining in the starting lineup in place of Brandon Jennings, who is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles.
"D.J. played really well the other night," Van Gundy said, per the team's official website. "I don't think there's any doubt he can handle that and we've got confidence in (Spencer Dinwiddie). I think we'll pick up another reinforcement and we'll keep going forward. It's obviously a loss and it'll make it tougher, but we've got great confidence. It doesn't change our game a whole lot. We'll keep playing."

|(1/25/15) Pistons point guard D.J. Augustin scored a career-high 35 points on 12 of 20 shooting from the field, including 5 of 9 from 3-point range in his first start for the injured Brandon Jennings.
Augustin led the way for Detroit, addidng eight assists and four rebounds to his totals, but it wasn't enough in the 114-110 loss to the Raptors Sunday. It was Augustin's fourth game in double figures scoring this month and 16th overall this season.
"He handled the minutes fine and played well offensively," coach Stan Van Gundy said. "We played well offensively, we just played no defense. We couldn’t stop them at all. If you can’t win scoring 110 points then you don’t deserve to."

D.J. Augustin explodes for season-high 26 off the bench
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(1/7/15) Pistons guard D.J. Augustin came off the bench to score a season-high 26 points in just 21 minutes Wednesday at Dallas. Augustin drilled 4 of 5 3-pointers and shot 9 of 16 overall, adding two assists, a rebound and a steal.
Augustin plays the Hawks on Friday.
|The Bulls have rightly taken flak for their inability to score over the last few years, but they have become a destination for point guards who have fallen on hard times nonetheless. D.J. Augustin looked like he might not be long for the NBA when the Raptors cut him last season, but he landed in a perfect spot in Chicago, as he revived his career over the final 61 games of the season. He averaged 14.9 points and 5.0 assists in 30.4 minutes per game for the Bulls, performing well enough to get a multi-year deal from the Pistons. He will likely come off the bench in Detroit, but this could be another solid landing spot for him, with coach Stan Van Gundy at the helm and a plethora of talented big men to run pick and rolls with. Augustin plays a deep position, but should still be worth a late-round flier in most Fantasy formats.
