D.J. Augustin out with toe injury
Charlotte orthopedist Dr. Bob Anderson on Tuesday confirmed a diagnosis of an inflammatory condition of the sesmoid bones that lie in the flexor tendons on Augustin's right big toe. The injury has been bothering Augustin for months, but he re-aggravated it during Sunday's game at New Jersey.
Augustin is averaging 13.6 points and 6.6 assists per game for the Bobcats this season.
The Bobcats host the New York Knicks Tuesday night.
