D.J. Augustin (hamstring) is hoping to return to the court for Saturday’s game against the Jazz according to the Orlando Sentinel.
If Augustin can’t get healthy prior to Saturday, his next target would be Monday against the Pacers. “I’m leaving it up to the training staff on when I could return, but it’s looking like pretty soon,” Augustin said. “It’s hard to sit out. But with a hamstring, you want to be careful with it, because it could recur and I don’t want to go backwards.” Augustin hasn’t played in November but was playing close to standard league value prior to his injury. Jonathon Simmons has taken a step forward during his absence along with Shelvin Mack, but Mack is a guy that will lose value when D.J. returns. Simmons shouldn’t experience too much of a drop.
