Augustin is currently dealing with a calf injury, and head coach Mike Budenholzer has ruled him out for Wednesday’s contest vs. the Bucks. Budenholzer said that he would be in the lineup if it was Augustin’s choice, but the team wants to give him additional time to recover and make sure he’s close to 100%.
With Augustin out of the lineup, expect Donte DiVincenzo and Bryn Forbes to see a few additional minutes. DiVincenzo was an excellent fantasy option for the Bucks when given playing time last season – he averaged approximately 0.95 FanDuel points per minute – while Forbes is a new addition. He should fit in well in the Bucks’ offensive system given his ability to shoot the 3-pointer. He shot 38.8% on an average of 6.0 attempts per game last season, and he’s a 40.0% 3-point shooter for his career.
The Bucks open up the year with a tough matchup against the Celtics in Boston, but they’re listed as four-point road favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook.
