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.

Josh Hart questionable, Willy Hernangomez, Garrett Temple out for Sunday game at Houston

Although New Orleans chose to split it travel-wise into two separate road trips of two games apiece, the Pelicans have a chance Sunday to go 3-1 over a four-game span of Week 16 away contests. A win Sunday in Houston also would give the team its longest overall winning streak since just before Christmas. For New Orleans to make it three consecutive victories, however, the Pelicans will have to do so while competing without key reserves and potentially one full-time starter.

Pelicans' Willy Hernangomez, Garrett Temple placed in health and safety protocols

Despite holding a 19-32 record , the New Orleans Pelicans sit just one-and-a-half games behind the 10th-place Portland Trail Blazers for the final spot in the play-in tournament. The Pels will continue their current four-game road trip on Friday night against the Denver Nuggets, but learned on Thursday that they'll be down at least two important members of their rotation.

Willy Hernangomez, Garrett Temple out, Josh Hart questionable for Friday at Denver

New Orleans’ second unit played a vital role Tuesday in erasing a 15-point second-half deficit at Detroit, allowing the Pelicans to even their record at 1-1 on a road trip against Central Division opponents. Unfortunately for the Pelicans, two members of that group will not be available to play Friday at Denver in the team’s third road game of this week. Willy Hernangomez and Garrett Temple were placed in health and safety protocols and are listed as out on Thursday afternoon’s official injury update by the team.

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.

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.
