The Wizards are not interested in trading Garrett Temple, according to J. Michael of CSN Washington.
Despite earlier reports, Michael says the Wizards really like Temple and would like to keep him around. Temple's fantasy value is limited as long as he's in Washington as he's more of a backup option, but we'll keep an eye on the trade front as he could see a boost in his fantasy stock in a new locale.

The Wizards have not been contacted by the Jazz about Garrett Temple.

It's no secret the Jazz need a point guard with Dante Exum (knee) out for the season. Trey Burke was awful as the starter last season while their only other point guards on their roster are Bryce Cotton and Raul Neto.

According to Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today, the Wizards are not opposed to trading Garrett Temple to the Jazz.

Dante Exum could possibly miss the entire 2015-16 season after he was diagnosed with a torn ACL, so Temple would make a lot of sense for the Jazz. The Wizards wouldn't mind the extra cap space and Temple probably isn't a big part of their plans moving forward anyways, so they won't be asking for much in return. We will let you know if the two sides begin discussing a trade.

According to Jody Genessy of Deseret News, the Jazz are interested in pursuing Garrett Temple.

Dante Exum was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee on Thursday, so the Jazz are looking to strengthen their PG rotation. Temple has a good relationship with Jazz head coach Quin Snyder, so the move would make a lot of sense. Temple is similar to Exum on the defensive end, but he does have his limitations on offense and it would be hard to imagine him having more than a limited role off the bench. We will let you know if this reports gains any traction.

Garrett Temple will exercise his player option for the 2015-16 season.

It was a no-brainer for Temple, who probably wouldn't fetch more than the minimum next season. The Wizards will use him as a backup combo guard next season and he's unlikely to be in the rotation.
Jun 15 - 3:40 PM

Garrett Temple is likely to exercise his player option for next season and remain with the Wizards.

Temple isn't guaranteed to find a roster spot on another NBA team if he tests free agency, so this is the smart move on his behalf. He's not on the fantasy radar.
May 18 - 1:02 PM

Garrett Temple returned from a nearly two-month absence on Tuesday to score two points with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 13 minutes off the bench.

Temple strained his hamstring and hadn't played since March 9, but John Wall's wrist injury thrust him into a key role behind starting PG Ramon Sessions. He's ahead of Will Bynum (DNP-CD) on the depth chart, but that's not saying much -- he's a fantasy pariah whether or not Wall is ready for Saturday's game.
May 5 - 10:54 PM

Head coach Randy Wittman confirmed that Garrett Temple (hamstring) will be available for Game 1 vs. the Hawks on Sunday.

Temple has been on the shelf since Mar. 9 and just recently returned to practice on Friday, so there is no guarantee that he sees the floor today. With the Wizards at full strength, Temple will find it hard to carve out a significant role in this series.
May 3 - 11:34 AM

Garrett Temple (hamstring) is warming up to play in Game 1 vs. the Hawks on Sunday.

Temple made it through practice on Friday and is expected to be available to play today, so this is definitely a good sign. However, he has been sidelined since Mar. 9, and with the way Otto Porter has been playing off the bench, Temple probably won't see many minutes right out of the gate.
May 3 - 11:10 AM

Garrett Temple went through practice on Friday and will be available for Game 1 in the second round.

Temple had a hamstring strain with some tearing and has been out since Mar. 9. With Otto Porter really stepping up and Bradley Beal logging major minutes, there are not a lot of minutes available for Temple.
May 1 - 2:06 PM

Garrett Temple (hamstring) has progressed to going through individual drills, and he should be ready to play for the Wizards' second-round series.

As long as John Wall and Bradley Beal are healthy, Temple is going to have a tough time getting consistent minutes in Washington's rotations. He'll fight with Ramon Sessions for reserve minutes, but his fantasy value is essentially non-existent playing in a limited role off the bench for the Wizards.
Apr 28 - 2:17 PM

Garrett Temple (hamstring) has still not been able to practice.

Temple isn't close to being ready for any game-time action, and it'll be Ramon Sessions serving as Washington's primary backup point guard for however long he's sidelined. As long as John Wall is healthy, the backup point guards in Washington will remain non-options in fantasy leagues.
Apr 23 - 3:03 PM

Garrett Temple (hamstring) got a lot of shots up during the Wizards' practice on Sunday, and there's a chance he can return later in their first round series against the Raptors.

Temple isn't a major part of the Wizards' rotations, and considering he's been sidelined since March 9, he would likely return in a very limited role. Ramon Sessions will be Washington's primary backup point guard for as long as Temple is sidelined, but he's not going to get enough minutes to matter in almost any format.
Apr 19 - 2:25 PM

Garrett Temple (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday, and he will not play when the Wizards kick off their series against the Raptors on Saturday.

Temple said that he's hopeful to play at some point during the playoffs, but he's not a major piece to Washington's puzzle, and he'd be unlikely to earn many minutes even when he's eventually cleared to return. Ramon Sessions and Will Bynum will continue to get a bulk of the backup point guard minutes for the Wizards, but with John Wall healthy, they're going to be nearly invisible on the stat sheet.
Apr 16 - 4:18 PM

Garrett Temple (hamstring) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Pacers.

Ramon Sessions and Will Bynum will split Temple's reserve minutes, but with John Wall healthy, neither guy is worth owning in most leagues.
