Eric Nehm: Mike Budenholzer says D.J. Augustin was a modified participant in practice today and will travel to Boston with the team. They’ll see how he responds to today’s work and if he can play tomorrow night. He missed the Bucks’ final preseason game last Friday with a left calf strain.
Josh Robbins: D.J. Augustin, who will miss his 10th consecutive game tonight with left knee bone irritation, likely will be sidelined until after the All-Star break, Steve Clifford said.
Josh Robbins: An MRI today on D.J. Augustin’s sore knee revealed bone irritation, team officials said. Augustin will be re-evaluated in three to four weeks. Another impactful injury for the Magic.
Josh Robbins: The Magic added two people to their injury report for Friday’s game in Phoenix. Team officials said D.J. Augustin is doubtful to play due to a left knee contusion. Aaron Gordon is questionable due to right calf tightness.
Josh Robbins: D.J. Augustin soaked his sprained right ankle in a bucket filled with ice water after the game. Here’s how he described his injury and his likelihood to play Sunday night in Cleveland: “It’s not bad, but it’s pretty painful right now. I’m going to do whatever I can tonight and tomorrow morning to get it right for the game tomorrow and see how it feels. But we have some big games coming up and we have an off day in Philly. So we’ll see how it goes.” -Magic point guard D.J. Augustin describing his sprained right ankle
Josh Robbins: D.J. Augustin, who was listed as questionable to play tonight because of a sprained ankle, will be available to play, Magic officials said.
Josh Robbins: Magic point guard D.J. Augustin will be available to play tonight against the Jazz, Magic officials said. He injured his left hamstring on Nov. 1.
D.J. Augustin, who strained his left hamstring Nov. 1 and missed the Magic’s last seven games, said he hopes to play either Saturday against the Utah Jazz or Monday against the Indiana Pacers. “I feel a lot better right now,” Augustin said after he watched the Magic lose to the Portland Trail Blazers 99-94 Wednesday night at Moda Center. “I’m leaving it up to the training staff on when I could return, but it’s looking like pretty soon. So I hope either Saturday or Monday, at least one of those games, because I’ve been ready to play. I’m just tired of sitting out. 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.”
Josh Robbins: D.J. Augustin is making progress in his return from a strained left hamstring. His teammates have finished practicing at the Moda Center, but he’s stuck around with athletic trainers and support staff to put up shots. He’s listed as out for tomorrow’s game.
The Orlando Magic likely will have just two healthy point guards available for the next week or so. D.J. Augustin, who strained his left hamstring on Nov. 1 in Memphis, probably won’t be able to play during the Magic’s four-game road trip to the West Coast, which will begin Friday night in Phoenix and end Nov. 15 in Portland. “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.”
Josh Robbins: DJ Augustin (ankle) and Evan Fournier (heel) will not play tonight, the Magic said.
Josh Robbins: X-rays did not show any fracture in D.J. Augustin’s right ankle. Augustin will not return to the game.

The Sun-Times, as well as several other media outlets, reported at the start of the 2020-21 campaign that it was important for LaVine to be given max money moving forward. However, there are several sources who said that might not be the case any longer, as adding key role players around him could persuade LaVine to give the Bulls a slight discount.
The league continues to monitor every potential impact coronavirus could have on its players. Discussions are near constant and have included the possibility of delaying playoff games in the instance of positive tests, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Those conversations have not gone so far to set a tipping point. Teams with fewer vaccinated players are naturally at greater risk of seeing cases spread among teammates.
This is old hat by now for the presumptive MVP. According to the NBA’s Last Two Minute Reports, Jokic has been on the wrong end of a bad call a league-leading 14 times this season. Twice as many as the second-most player.
That said, Jokic has been getting the fuzzy end of the lollipop for a lot longer than just this season. According to @atlhawksfanatic database of Last Two Minute Reports, Jokic has been on the wrong end of more bad calls than anyone else since 2015, which is as far back as the data goes. The chart below shows the players who have been disadvantaged the most from bad calls since the NBA started publicizing the Last Two Minute Reports.
He’s shooting three fewer attempts per game this season and three fewer 3-point attempts. “He has some guys out on the floor with him this year that we feel can help,” McMillan said. “He doesn’t have to put so much pressure on himself to be that scorer. He has weapons out on the floor with him and what he has to do is not put that pressure on himself to win the game himself. He has some guys who can help him do that.”
