Elfrid Payton (left hamstring strain) will not play against the Cavs on Saturday.
Hamstring injuries can be tricky if not taken care of properly so there will be no rush to get Payton back on the court. Augustin posted a decent line filling in for Payton with ten points, five assists, two triples and a steal in 23 minutes. He can be a temporary pickup in deeper leagues. Shelvin Mack started the second half in Payton’s absence and should also see an increased role but Augustin is the guy to target.
