We present measurements of the steady-state temperature in a three-dimensional cesium optical lattice, operating in the near-resonance regime of the D2 line. For various detunings between the (F-g=4 -->F-e=5) and the (F-g=4 -->F-e=4) transitions, we systematically determine at which intensities/optical potential modulation depths the Sisyphus cooling process breaks down and what the lowest achievable temperatures are. We find that the minimum temperature decreases as we increase the detuning with respect to the (F-g=4 -->F-e=5) transition.
