D.J. Augustin out after birth of boy
According to the Bulls pregame radio broadcast on ESPN 1000, Augustin's wife gave birth Monday to a baby boy.
Augustin's absence meant more minutes for Bulls guard Jimmer Fredette, who hasn't seen the floor much since signing with the team in March. He scored 17 points on 7-of-14 shooting in 31 minutes.
Augustin, who has been described as a "season saver" by his teammates and coaches, is averaging 13 points and 4.4 assists a game since signing with the Bulls in December.
