Temple (knee) played 20 minutes and finished with two points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal Monday in the Nets' 117-111 loss to the 76ers.
Though Temple entered the starting five in his return from a three-game absence, he'll likely be the top candidate to head to the bench if Kyrie Irving (hamstring) is cleared to play in the Nets' next contest Thursday versus the Lakers. Temple had a stretch of quality performances in December to keep himself on the 12-team radar, but he's now more of a deep-league option following the recent returns of Irving and Caris LeVert from extended absences.
Temple will start Monday's game against the Sixers, Anthony Puccio of Nets Daily reports.
Temple missed the last three games with a knee bruise, but he was cleared from the injury report and will move into the starting lineup alongside Spencer Dinwiddie and Joe Harris. The Nets will be without Kyrie Irving (hamstring) on Monday.
Temple (knee) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against Philadelphia.
Temple missed three straight games with a bruised knee, but, as expected, he'll be back in the lineup Monday night. Temple has routinely topped 30 minutes this season, but he's benefited from extended absences of Kyrie Irving and Caris LeVert, so he could return to a slightly lesser role.
Temple (knee) is expected to make his return Monday against the 76ers, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Temple has missed three of the past four games, but signs are pointing to him re-joining the rotation Monday. A confirmation on his status may arrive following Monday's morning shootaround.
Temple (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game versus the Bucks, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
The 33-year-old will take a seat for the fourth time in the last five games as he continues to battle a right knee bruise. Joe Harris (back) is also sidelined, likely providing increased opportunities for Rodions Kurucs, Caris LeVert and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot. Per Lewis, the Nets tentatively plan on Temple being able to return for Monday's game against Philadelphia.
Temple (knee) will not play Wednesday against the 76ers, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
A right knee contusion will keep Temple sidelined for the third time in four games. His next chance to play comes Saturday against the Bucks. Temple is averaging 10.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists across 27.0 minutes per game this month (four games), though he'll likely see his role decrease moving forward with Kyrie Irving and Caris LeVert both back to full health.
Temple won't play Tuesday against the Jazz due to a right knee contusion.
Temple missed two games earlier in January due to the same injury, but he returned from his most recent absence in Friday's loss to the Heat to play 21 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 108-86 victory over the Hawks. The veteran guard may still be feeling the effects of the knee issue coming out of that game, so the Nets will exercise some precaution with Temple on the front end of the back-to-back set. Temple is averaging 29.2 minutes per game over his 36 appearances this season, but his role is set to decrease in the second half of the campaign now that both Caris LeVert and Kyrie Irving have returned from extended absences due to injuries.
Temple (knee) is available for Sunday's game against the Hawks, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.
Since he only missed one game due to a bruised right knee, Temple shouldn't face any sort of minutes restriction, but his playing time looks to be headed for a downturn in any case. The veteran had already moved into a bench role in his previous appearance Tuesday, and minutes will be even harder to come by with Caris LeVert (thumb) having his restriction lifted and with star point guard Kyrie Irving (shoulder) making his return Sunday following an extended absence. Despite providing some useful steals and three-point production in recent weeks, Temple no longer looks like a player worth holding in most 12-team leagues.
Temple (knee) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Hawks.
Temple has missed two of the Nets' last five games with lingering knee soreness but will look to make his return against Atlanta. With Kyrie Irving (shoulder) expected to make his return Sunday, Temple could be in for a smaller role than he is accustomed to in the Brooklyn back court.
Temple (knee) was downgraded to out for Friday's game against the Heat.
Temple was listed as questionable with right knee soreness but will end up sitting out for the second time in the last five games. Theo Pinson could have an increased role off the bench Friday.
Temple (knee) is questionable for Friday's contest against Miami, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Temple's appearance on the injury report is likely just a precaution taken by the Nets, as the veteran has played in each of the past three games while logging 29.0 minutes and 10.7 points. Temple is currently posting a comeback season in his 10th year in the league, averaging a career-highs in points and rebounds with 10.6 and 3.4, respectively.
Temple will return to a reserve role for Tuesday's game against the Thunder, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
Temple will be replaced by Rodions Kurucs in the starting unit, while Caris LeVert will continue to work himself back into the swing of things in a reserve role.
Temple (knee) will start Saturday's game against the Raptors, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
With Caris LeVert (thumb) coming off the bench for his first game back, Temple will remain in his usual starting role. That could change soon, however.
Temple (knee) will play Saturday against the Raptors, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
As expected, Temple will take the court Saturday despite a bruised right knee. However, his role may be reduced, as Caris LeVert (thumb) is making his return since being out from Nov. 10 onward.
Temple (knee) is probable for Saturday's tilt against the Raptors, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Temple is expected to make a return following a one-game absence due to a bruised right knee. However, his role may be reduced, as Caris LeVert (thumb) is probable to make his return since being out from Nov. 10 onward.
Temple (knee) is out for Thursday's contest against Dallas, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
It'll be the veteran's first missed game of the 2019-20 campaign, as the guard has played in the Nets' first 32 games this year. With Temple out due to a right knee contusion Thursday, Theo Pinson and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot are conditions to see increased run versus the Mavericks.
Temple is questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Mavericks due to a right knee contusion, Anthony Puccio of NetsDaily.com reports.
Temple has emerged from Monday's loss to Minnesota with a bruised right knee. If he ends up missing his first game of the year Thursday, Theo Pinson and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot could end up seeing more run.
Temple had 25 points (10-19 FG, 4-9 3PT, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 40 minutes during Saturday's 122-112 win over the Hawks.
Temple broke out of a slump that saw him made just 32.5 percent of his field goals in his six previous games, but he has scored in double digits on a regular basis. An improvement on his shooting percentages would certainly boost his fantasy value, but he is already a productive player in most formats due to his scoring figures.
Temple had 10 points (2-12 FG, 2-10 3PT, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, three steals and two assists in 34 minutes during Thursday's 118-105 loss at San Antonio.
Temple has scored in double digits in five of his last six games while dishing out multiple assists in each of those contests, but he has made just 32.5 percent of his field goals and 25.5 percent of his three-point shots during that span. He can be relied on as a scoring threat, but he needs to improve his efficiency from the field during the upcoming contests.
Temple tallied 13 points (4-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and four assists in 29 minutes Sunday in the Nets' 109-89 win over the 76ers.
Temple's output in the steals category has been on the decline lately, but the swingman is still providing enough value in the points, three-pointers and assists categories to make himself a worthy roster option in 12-team fantasy leagues. He's now hit double figures in scoring in five of his last six games, averaging 15.0 points (on 44.7% shooting from the field) to go with 3.3 assists and 2.8 triples in 32.2 minutes. Temple should have a clear path to elevated minutes so long as Caris LeVert (thumb) and Kyrie Irving (shoulder) are sidelined.
