Toe injury to keep Bobcats' Augustin out four games

Posted Jan 24 2012 6:00PM

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Bobcats have announced guard D.J. Augustin is expected to miss the next four games with a right toe injury.

Augustin saw Charlotte orthopedist Dr. Bob Anderson on Tuesday and the diagnosis confirmed 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.

With Augustin out of the lineup, rookie Kemba Walker will start at point guard and Gerald Henderson will move back to the shooting guard spot. Derrick Brown will get the start at small forward.

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.
