Temple will begin the basketball season without two of the tallest Owls.
Six-foot-9 senior forward Craig Williams is expected to be sidelined for a month as he recovers from surgery on his right foot. Temple also has decided to redshirt 6-10 freshman forward Jimmy McDonnell this season.
The Owls had hoped Williams would provide depth early in the season.
The native of St. Croix, Virgin Islands, averaged 3.8 points and 1.8 rebounds per game last season. He broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his foot over the summer and had surgery during the first week of September.
