  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Light run in return from COVID-19

    Temple (COVID-19 protocols) played nine minutes off the bench and finished with zero points, one assist and one block in Tuesday's 110-97 win over the Rockets.

    Temple missed only two games while he was in the NBA's health and safety protocols, and though New Orleans was shorthanded after executing a blockbuster trade with Portland earlier in the day, head coach Willie Green didn't turn to the veteran wing for big minutes in his return to action. Temple may still be able to stick in the rotation ahead of the newly acquired Tony Snell, but the addition of CJ McCollum will likely prevent Temple from seeing a major jump in playing time from what he received Tuesday.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Cleared to play

    Temple (COVID-19 protocols) has been cleared to play Tuesday against the Rockets.

    Temple had been listed as questionable heading into the day, but the Pelicans must have been encouraged enough by how he looked from a conditioning standpoint at morning shootaround to clear him to return from a two-game absence. Prior to entering the health and safety protocols, Temple had been held under 20 minutes in both of his last two appearances, but he could be called upon to see more playing time Tuesday with the Pelicans unlikely to have any of Josh Hart, Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Tomas Satoransky available as the team works to finalize a trade with Portland to acquire CJ McCollum.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Questionable Tuesday

    Temple (COVID-19 protocols) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

    Temple was out the last two games after entering the NBA's health and safety protocols Thursday, but he may be able to return to action Tuesday versus Houston. He'll likely come off the bench if available since the Pelicans' usual starting five is fully healthy.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Enters health and safety protocols

    Temple was placed in the league's health and safety protocols Thursday, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

    Temple has officially been ruled out for Friday's game against the Nuggets and will need to isolate from the Pelicans. Tomas Satoransky and Herbert Jones could see additional run in his absence.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Shifts back to bench

    Temple will come off the bench Monday against the Cavaliers, Daniel Sallerson of the Pelicans Radio Network reports.

    Temple started the past four games but will move to the bench Monday in favor of Jaxson Hayes. Temple should still be plenty involved as a reserve since Brandon Ingram (ankle) remains out.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Running with first unit

    Temple is starting Monday's game against the Pacers.

    Temple will move into the starting lineup with Brandon Ingram (ankle) ruled out Monday evening. His last start dates back to Jan. 9 against Toronto, when he finished with eight points, six assists, three rebounds and a steal in 33 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Coming off bench

    Temple will come off the bench Tuesday against the Timberwolves, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    With Josh Hart (personal) back in the lineup, Temple will come off the bench. As a reserve, he's averaged 4.7 points and 2.1 rebounds in 15.6 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Struggles in loss

    Temple notched eight points (3-10 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, six assists and one steal in 33 minutes during Sunday's 105-101 loss to the Raptors.

    Starting for Josh Hart (health and safety related), Temple couldn't find his stroke from beyond the arc. His six assists led the Pelicans and easily marked a season high for the veteran. Despite the cold performance, Temple is connecting on 37.9 percent of his threes on 3.4 attempts per game.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Starting Sunday

    Temple is starting Sunday's game against the Raptors, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Temple came off the bench in each of the last three games and averaged 4.3 points and 3.0 rebounds in 19.3 minutes per contest during that time. However, he'll rejoin the starting five with Josh Hart (not injury related) and Tomas Satoransky (COVID-19 protocols) sidelined.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Shifts to bench

    Temple will come off the bench Monday against the Jazz.

    Temple averaged 17.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 3.7 3PM over the past three games with Brandon Ingram (Achilles) sidelined, but Ingram is back in the lineup Monday. Temple should still be involved as a bench piece but figures to have a much lesser role in the rotation.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Continues to pour in threes

    Temple finished with 14 points (5-12 FG, 4-9 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes Saturday in the Pelicans' 136-113 loss to the Bucks.

    With Brandon Ingram (Achilles) missing the last two games and Jonas Valanciunas (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) sitting out three of the past four, Temple has been one of several members of the Pelicans' supporting cast who has been thrust into a larger role. Temple has been able to capitalize on the opportunity by averaging 17.7 points and 3.7 three-pointers over the past three contests, but his strong run of production in both areas will soon come to an end. Not only has he shot an unsustainable 55.6 percent from the field and 47.8 percent from downtown over that stretch, but both Ingram and Valanciunas are listed as questionable ahead of Monday's game against the Jazz. Even if regression doesn't rear its head immediately, Temple will see his playing time and usage dip once one or both of Ingram and Valanciunas are cleared to play.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Drops in five triples Tuesday

    Temple provided 17 points (6-7 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal across 37 minutes during Tuesday's 108-104 victory over the Cavaliers.

    Temple had himself another productive night Tuesday, taking advantage of the fact the team was without a lot of their primary offensive weapons. Temple shot 86 percent from the field, something that I think we can all agree will not happen again anytime soon. In a role such as this, while lacking certainty, he is at least worth considering in standard leagues as a 3-point streamer.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Starting Tuesday

    Temple will start Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    With Josh Hart (ankle) and Brandon Ingram (Achilles) sidelined, Temple will join the starting five. In his nine starts this season, he's averaged 8.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals in 28.0 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Season-best performance Sunday

    Temple supplied 22 points (9-17 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 35 minutes during Sunday's 117-112 loss to the Thunder.

    Temple took full advantage of an injury to Brandon Ingram (Achilles), turning in easily his best game of the season. While this was a fantastic effort by the veteran, fantasy managers don't need to rush to make a speculative add. He's seen starter's minutes for periods of time already this season, only to produce inconsistent results. At best, Temple should be viewed as a potential streaming option for teams in need of some triples and steals.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Fails to score in limited minutes

    Temple contributed zero points (0-3 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists over 15 minutes during Friday's 116-112 overtime victory over the Bucks.

    Temple saw just 14 minutes in the victory, failing to score and continuing his recent struggles. As a player who is well beyond their prime, Temple is only going to be relevant if and when the Pelicans are severely shorthanded. For now, he can be ignored in nearly every format.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Back to bench

    Temple will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, Pelicans sideline reporter Jennifer Hale reports.

    Temple has logged a handful of starts through the first several weeks of the season, but he'll move back to the bench Wednesday with Josh Hart set to return. The Pels will roll with Devonte' Graham, Hart, Brandon Ingram, Herbert Jones and Jonas Valanciunas.

  • Pelicans' Garrett Temple: Across-the-board effort in win

    Temple had five points (1-5 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal across 24 minutes during Friday's 107-91 win over Dallas.

    Temple remained in the starting lineup, filling in admirably for the injured Josh Hart. Given what we know about Temple, this could very well be one of his better games this season. He rewarded fantasy managers with a strong performance Friday, but his value could be short-lived since Hart has a chance to return against the Rockets on Sunday.
