Garrett Temple (ankle) will remain on the sidelines for Monday's game against the Spurs.

He's been out since March 19 and there's a good chance we won't see him again this season.
Apr 9 - 2:59 PM

Garrett Temple (ankle) will not play against the Grizzlies on Friday.

There's really been no indication that he'll be playing again this season.
Apr 6 - 5:16 PM

Garrett Temple (sprained left ankle) will not play vs. the Lakers on Sunday.

We're flipping the veteran to 'out indefinitely' because we haven't seen him practice, and the Kings have no reason to bring him back at this stage of the season.
Apr 1 - 3:16 PM

Garrett Temple will not play against the Warriors on Saturday.

The Kings want to play Frank Mason and Buddy Hield off the bench as much as they can, it would seem.
Mar 31 - 10:00 PM

Garrett Temple will not play on Thursday against the Pacers.

With the young guards healthy, Temple will likely miss several games going forward. The Kings are starting their usual five with Fox, Bogdanovic, Jackson, Labissiere and Cauley-Stein.
Mar 29 - 9:36 PM

Garrett Temple (ankle) will not play Tuesday vs. Dallas.

Temple has missed each of the Kings last two contests and will be sidelined for a third on Wednesday. Bogdan Bogdanovic, Buddy Hield and Frank Mason will again see additional playing time.
Mar 27 - 11:12 AM

Garrett Temple (ankle) will not play on Sunday against the Celtics.

The Kings are likely going to hold him out for a bit to get a longer look at Frank Mason and their other young guys.
Mar 24 - 5:55 PM

Garrett Temple (ankle) is out for Thursday against the Hawks.

It's a new injury for Temple, and there's certainly a chance he gets held out beyond Thursday. It sounds like Bogdan Bogdanovic will be back, so Bogdan, Buddy Hield, Frank Mason and De'Aaron Fox should handle the guard minutes.
Mar 21 - 6:53 PM

Garrett Temple came off the bench to hit 5-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block in 29 minutes on Monday.

It's impossible to guess if Temple will play well or not on any given night, as he's scored 3, 2, 23, 7 and 15 points in each of his last five games. He's nothing more than a streamer in FDS leagues due to his inconsistency and even then he's a risky play, as he could do nothing or get hot on any given night. He's a gambler's fantasy option, at best, but if you played him tonight, he came through with a solid line.
Mar 12 - 10:37 PM

Garrett Temple scored 23 points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Magic during a 94-88 victory on Friday.

He's a solid off-ball guard and the Kings could stick with him in the starting lineup while De'Aaron Fox is out. However, there's always going to be some rest risk on Temple, so it's really tough to call him an add even if this game was a 50-point outing. If he's confirmed as the starter again on Sunday, give him a look as a streamer or DFS play. Congrats if you played him today.
Mar 10 - 12:32 AM

Garrett Temple started over Frank Mason on Friday against the Magic.

Kangz. We're still not worried about Mason here.
Mar 9 - 10:12 PM

Garrett Temple scored two points with one rebound in 20 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He did start the second half for De'Aaron Fox (back) tonight. However, it's still really tough to add him in fantasy because he could be getting rested at some point. Plus, the Kings having a late start makes it tough to use him in DFS, too.
Mar 8 - 12:25 AM

Garrett Temple was a DNP-CD on Saturday against the Jazz.

No surprise here and he may be able to play against the Knicks on Sunday. He can't be trusted in fantasy leagues right now.
Mar 4 - 12:22 AM

Garrett Temple played 30 minutes with nine points, four rebounds, three steals and one 3-pointer against the Nets on Thursday.

He got the night off on Monday and Tuesday, but he was out there for this one. Temple will get plenty of nights off going forward, so fantasy owners won't want to play this guessing game.
