DeMarre Carroll scored four points in 40 minutes vs. the Bulls on Tuesday.
Really? He shot 1-of-4 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line, adding six rebounds, one assist and three steals. Carroll has been pretty decent lately apart from this dud and he was averaging 10.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.0 triples in his previous six February games, so cut him a break if you need his triples and steals. The Terrence Ross trade actually could hurt Carroll, as he won't play nearly as many minutes as a small-ball four -- Patrick Patterson (knee) should be back after the break and Serge Ibaka could debut on Wednesday. It didn't help Carroll's case that Norman Powell looked great tonight, so he is a low-end hold for now. Feb 14 - 10:49 PM

DeMarre Carroll stayed hot on Sunday, hitting 6-of-9 shots with two 3-pointers to finish a rough home loss with 15 points, three assists, two rebounds, one steal and one turnover in 36 minutes.

Carroll got off to a brutal start this season but he seems to have turned the corner in his past four games, averaging 14.5 points on combined 22-of-35 shooting (62.9 percent), with 5.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals. His minutes are trending in the right direction and he's a very interesting pickup, especially if you need perimeter shooting.
Feb 12 - 8:57 PM

DeMarre Carroll was hot in a loss to the Wolves on Wednesday, making 7-of-9 from the field for 19 points with nine rebounds, two assists and five 3-pointers.

Since his goose egg on Friday, Carroll looks to be in good shape. In those three, Carroll averaged 14.3 points, 6.4 boards, 1.0 steals and 2.7 treys on 61.5 percent from the field. He's been annoying at times, but he's proved he's worth the headache for owners in standard leagues.
Feb 9 - 1:17 AM

DeMarre Carroll went 6-of-11 from the field and 1-of-2 from the stripe on his way to 15 points, five boards, two triples, one assist, three steals, one block and one turnover in 31 minutes on Sunday.

Guys going through cold streaks tend to have breakout games against the Nets, but don’t be surprised if he goes back to stinking it up on Monday vs. the Clippers. Carroll is holding onto late-round value on the year, but he’s too inconsistent to be considered a must-own guy in standard leagues.
Feb 5 - 2:28 PM

DeMarre Carroll did not score in 18 minutes against the Magic on Friday, adding three rebounds and one steal.

Yuck. Carroll is in one of his patented slumps one again, but now they may have to shift him to the small-ball four with Patrick Patterson (knee) possibly missing time. Carroll's efficiency doesn't really have a trend with his small-ball minutes and it's really just about him being in a good rhythm. He can get hot at a moment's notice, so most owners should hold him. He's obviously droppable for a hot free agent.
Feb 3 - 9:51 PM

DeMarre Carroll made just 2-of-8 shots, both 3-pointers, to finish Wednesday's rough loss with six points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover in 38 minutes.

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) was out again tonight, so Carroll's offense was sorely needed in a critical game vs. the Celtics, but he couldn't find the range. In their previous eight games, the Raptors' slumping offense managed to shoot just 42.0 percent from the field and 30.4 percent from deep. Tonight they made 52.6 percent of their shots, but the defense collapsed as the gave up a huge lead in a 109-104 defeat.
Feb 1 - 10:48 PM

DeMarre Carroll has been playing through an injured right finger on his shooting hand.

Carroll originally suffered the injury while taking a hard fall against the 76ers on January 18, so this can help explain why his shooting percentage has plummetted to 27 percent in the eight games since suffering the injury. Carroll just hasn't been able to find his groove this season, and over the past eight games he hasn't even been worth owning with averages of 6.4 points, 3.8 boards and 1.4 steals per contest. The upside is there, but he's not necessarily a must-own guy in standard leagues.
Feb 1 - 1:54 PM

DeMarre Carroll's shot returned on Wednesday, as he made 5-of-9 field goals to finish with 11 points, one 3-pointer, six rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes.

Carroll added two steals without any turnovers to round out his line tonight. This is nice to see for owners who are relying on him, as he came in shooting a moribund 8-of-39 from the field in his previous five games. He's been racking up steals lately, with solid 3-pointers and 92.3 percent FT shooting in January, as well as low turnovers, but we'd like to see his minutes stabilize in the 25-30 range.
Jan 25 - 11:49 PM

DeMarre Carroll was held to two points on 0-of-6 shooting on Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

Even with DeMar DeRozan (ankle) out, Carroll couldn't get it going offensively and both Terrence Ross and Norman Powell outplayed him. Carroll added four rebounds and a steal in just 15 minutes, and with Patrick Patterson, Jared Sullinger and Lucas Nogueira all healthy, his path to minutes as a small-ball four is closing. He's averaging 5.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.0 triple in 24.4 minutes per game over his last five, so dropping him for a hot free agent isn't a bad idea.
Jan 24 - 9:44 PM

DeMarre Carroll scored double-digit points for the first time in a week on Sunday, making 4-of-12 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs to finish with 14 points, four boards, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

Carroll avoided serious damage when he injured his neck on a scary play last Wednesday, but his play hasn't been indicative of good health -- he averaged 3.3 points on 19.1 percent shooting in Toronto's previous three games. His role has fluctuated this season depending upon matchups, so he's not the safest option with Lucas Nogueira, Jared Sullinger and Patrick Patterson (knee) all in the frontcourt mix.
Jan 22 - 8:56 PM

DeMarre Carroll made a start at power forward against the Hornets on Friday, scoring two points with one rebound, one steal and one block.

Before the game, coach Dwane Casey said Carroll wasn't hurt after his neck injury on Wednesday. Carroll did only make 1-of-7 from the field, but it's probably not due to his injury. The Raptors have dropped the restriction and he does have sixth-round value in his last 10, so he should be owned in all standard leagues.
Jan 20 - 9:56 PM

DeMarre Carroll (neck) will play Friday vs. Charlotte.

This is simply confirmation, as Carroll told the media earlier in the day that he planned to play. Prior to being injured on Wednesday, Carroll had been playing some of his best ball of the season, averaging 13.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.6 3-pointers per game over the Raps previous eight contests.
Jan 20 - 5:10 PM

DeMarre Carroll (sore neck) confirmed that he will play Friday vs. Charlotte.

Carroll took a knee to the head in Wednesday's game and was unable to return. His neck is a little stiff, but he avowed to suit up Friday night, reminding the Toronto media that he considered himself a "warrior." Carroll may be in line for extra minutes on Friday, assuming he can handle them, as both Patrick Patterson (knee) and Lucas Nogueira (concussion) are doubtful.
Jan 20 - 1:44 PM

DeMarre Carroll (sore neck) will not return to Wednesday's game.

Carroll took a knee to the head while falling and the good news is that there's no mention of a concussion -- tests came back negative and it's being described as something similar to whiplash. Terrence Ross should gain the most if Carroll is forced to miss any games, with Norman Powell also stepping into a bigger role. The Raptors next game is Friday in Charlotte.
Jan 18 - 9:03 PM

DeMarre Carroll went to the locker room in the third quarter on Wednesday.

He was falling to the ground and Pascal Siakam's knee caught him as he was falling. Carroll was down for about two minutes and he needed some help off the court, so he may be dealing with a concussion. If he's out, Terrence Ross and Norman Powell would benefit. Ross is the better speculative add because he's played better late;y.
