DeMarre Carroll logged just six minutes off the bench in Toronto's Game 4 loss to Cleveland on Sunday, finishing with just two points, two rebounds and one assist.
Carroll barely produced late-round value in his second season with the Raptors, and he wasn’t even worth owning after the break when his averages dipped to 7.2 points, 3.7 boards, 1.0 steal and 1.2 triples a night while connecting on just 36.9 percent of his shot attempts. He’s basically just a spot up shooter with the Raptors, so it has to hurt Toronto management that he’s owed roughly another $30.2 million over the next two seasons. May 7 - 6:45 PM

DeMarre Carroll headed to the bench on Wednesday, missing all six of his field goal attempts to finish scoreless with two steals, one rebound, one assist and one block in 19 minutes.

Carroll had just three points and four rebounds in 15 minutes during Game 1 on Monday, and the move to the second unit obviously didn't get him going. Nobody on the Raptors has been capable of slowing down LeBron James, which is theoretically one of Carroll's primary jobs -- if he's also bricking his shots, there's no reason to think his role will increase in Game 3.
May 3 - 10:07 PM

DeMarre Carroll played just 17 minutes and hit 3-of-4 shots for nine points, one rebounds, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's win over the Bucks.

Patrick Patterson played 30 minutes and P.J. Tucker got 28 of them off the bench, which severely limited Carroll's playing time. Carroll managed just five points and four boards in Game 1 and it will be interesting to see how long he'll stick in the starting lineup if he doesn't get it turned around. He's not worth using in any format these days.
Apr 18 - 9:47 PM

DeMarre Carroll went 1-of-6 from the field during Sunday's win over the Knicks, finishing with just three points, two boards and one assist to his credit.

Carroll been absolutely dreadful over the past few weeks, connecting on just 34.8 percent of his shot attempts to go with forgettable averages of 6.9 points, 1.7 triples and not much else, and he's ranked well outside of the top-200 during that seven-game span. Leave him on the wire.
Apr 9 - 3:48 PM

DeMarre Carroll played only 13 minutes vs. Detroit, going 1-of-6 from the field for two points, one rebound and one steal.

This was bad even by Carroll's own low standards this season. He averaged 11.0 points and 3.0 triples in his previous three games, with very little else to support his value, and his role shrank tonight with Toronto leaning on P.J. Tucker in a variety of lineups. Between the injuries and inefficiency, it's been a brutal season for Carroll in fantasy leagues.
Apr 5 - 10:31 PM

DeMarre Carroll (back) returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday, but he posted just three points, three rebounds, one assist and one block in 25 minutes.

Carroll has struggled with injuries and inconsistency all season, and there's no reason to think that will change in Toronto's final seven regular-season games. He's better in 9-cat leagues due to minimal turnovers, and is a decent source of 3-pointers with some defensive stats, but that's about it.
Mar 30 - 12:05 AM

DeMarre Carroll (back) will start and P.J. Tucker will come off the bench against the Hornets on Wednesday.

Carroll is back after missing his last two games. He was only playing around 20 minutes before his injury, so he should be in that neighborhood. With his return, Tucker, Norman Powell, Delon Wright, Jonas Valanciunas and Jakob Poeltl could lose a few minutes with the rotation change. Leave Carroll on the wire in most cases.
Mar 29 - 6:20 PM

DeMarre Carroll (back) was a full participant during shootaround, and he'll try to play Wednesday vs. the Hornets.

Dwane Casey confirmed that if Carroll is able to give it a go tonight, he'll reclaim his spot in the starting five, which will result in P.J. Tucker returning to the second unit. Carroll has been woefully inconsistent this season, so even if he is able to get out there, he can be left on the waiver wire in standard leagues.
Mar 29 - 11:21 AM

DeMarre Carroll (back) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Magic.

This will be Carroll's second straight game on the sidelines, and P.J. Tucker will be earning another start tonight. Tucker produced nine points, nine boards, three dimes, four steals, one triple and one turnover through 34 minutes as a starter his last time out, so he could be someone to consider throwing out there as a deep league streamer. For now, we'll consider Carroll questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.
Mar 27 - 5:58 PM

DeMarre Carroll (back) will not play against the Mavs on Saturday.

It's being called a sore lower back, so this isn't his nagging knee injury or his ankle issue from earlier this month. Carroll just can't stay healthy, and you can expect the Raptors to limit him even more. We'll see some Norman Powell and P.J. Tucker this evening. Even if Tucker starts, Powell is still a better fantasy option.
Mar 25 - 8:04 PM

DeMarre Carroll scored 12 points with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

While it's encouraging to see he did play on both games of a back-to-back set, Carroll hasn't exactly played well. He's capable of being a mid-round guy, but he's not the most desirable player to own until he shows he's capable or turning in games with consistent minutes in the 20s.
Mar 17 - 11:15 PM

DeMarre Carroll (ankle) scored two points with three rebounds, one steal and one block in 15 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

The Raptors were blown out and they needed offense late, so there were some changes to the rotation in the second half. Carroll is likely going to managed the rest of the way, so he's going to be really annoying to own. What's more, it's even tougher to count on him in a weekly league due to how often he's dealt with leg injuries.
Mar 16 - 9:28 PM

DeMarre Carroll (ankle) will return to the starting lineup against the Thunder on Thursday.

Carroll has missed three of the last four games due to his ankle sprain from two weekends ago. He did play 33 minutes in that one active game and actually lit it up with a four-steal, two-block game. He has a very fantasy-friendly game when he's on, but his propensity to be hurt makes him only a lukewarm pickup. His return takes away from P.J. Tucker and Norman Powell.
Mar 16 - 5:24 PM

DeMarre Carroll (ankle) went through practice on Wednesday and will be a game-time call against the Thunder on Thursday.

He's missed the last two games for his ankle soreness. If Carroll can make it back, that should mean Norman Powell and P.J. Tucker will lose playing time. The last time Carroll played, Powell only saw 18 minutes while P.J. Tucker was at 25, but they should see slightly more run with Carroll likely to be in the upper 20s in his return. If you're OK with Carroll being an injury risk, he's worth a look.
Mar 15 - 2:12 PM

DeMarre Carroll (ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Mavericks.

He did go through shootaround, so it sounds like he should be back any day now. The Raptors haven't announced who will start in his place, but Norman Powell started last game and scored 14 points in 35 minutes. P.J. Tucker should also benefit, but Powell has the higher upside. Carroll now gets a few days of rest before Thursday's game vs. the Thunder.
