DeMarre Carroll (left Achilles strain) will not play against the Blazers on Friday.
He is just banged up and the Hawks will allow him to heal. Carroll has been one of the more efficient small forwards in the NBA and his steals numbers have pushed him to mid-round value on the year. His fantasy owners should bench him tonight and expect him to play on Saturday against the 76ers. Thabo Sefolosha will start. Jan 30 - 5:52 PM

DeMarre Carroll will likely be out for Friday's game against the Trail Blazers.

If Carroll does indeed sit, Thabo Sefolosha would likely slide into the starting lineup. Carroll was described as "a little banged up," after sitting out Thursday's practice, and it appears he's going to be watching Friday's game from the sidelines. Through five starts at the forward spot this season, Sefolosha is averaging 9.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.0 steal, and 1.0 block per game, so he can only be viewed as an option in deeper leagues.
Jan 30 - 5:23 PM

Updating a previous report, Hawks' head coach Mike Budenholzer said that DeMarre Carroll is "fine," after sitting out Thursday's practice.

Budenholzer said that Carroll is "just getting a little work on his body," and it doesn't appear he's in jeopardy of missing Friday's game against Portland. Carroll has been up-and-down for much of the season, but he'll draw a favorable matchup against the Blazers on Friday, so owners can feel confident plugging him into their lineups.
Jan 29 - 3:38 PM

DeMarre Carroll did not practice on Thursday.

Carroll elected to get treatment on Thursday rather than practice, but it's not clear at this point exactly what his ailment is. We'll be providing updates as they become available, but we'd consider Carroll probable for Friday's game against the Trail Blazers.
Jan 29 - 2:23 PM

DeMarre Carroll hit 7-of-11 shots for 17 points, two rebounds, four assists, four steals and three 3-pointers on Wednesday.

The Hawks are getting solid contributions from their core on most nights and Carroll, who is a starter, runs hot and cold, like most of the Hawks bench players. He's a nice player to have on your roster but isn't a must-start fantasy player due to the unselfishness of the Hawks. They've now tied a franchise record with 14 straight wins, and after starting the season at 7-6, have gone 28-2 since. They'll get a tough test for their 15th straight win on Friday at home against the Thunder, but it would almost be surprising to see them lose at this point.
Jan 22 - 12:14 AM

DeMarre Carroll posted another dud during Monday's win over the Pistons, scoring five points on 2-of-7 shooting with two rebounds and one assist.

He missed all three of his 3-pointers but at least contributed a pair of steals without any turnovers in 32 minutes. Carroll has been a sneaky mid-round value in 9-cat leagues this season, with averages of 11.7 points, 1.6 threes, 5.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.3 steals, with tolerable percentages and a mere 0.9 turnovers per game.
Jan 19 - 6:37 PM

DeMarre Carroll scored just four points with four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

He was terrific on Wednesday, but Carroll is going to have his off nights on the stat sheet with just a 16.2 usage rate, especially when his teammates are on. He's still doing enough to keep him owned in standard leagues, though.
Jan 17 - 11:01 PM

DeMarre Carroll put his rest to good use against the Celtics on Wednesday with 22 points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He did not play on play on Tuesday and turned in his second-best scoring game of the season. Carroll is really just a catch-and-shoot guy in half-court sets and tonight was the first time since Christmas that he had double-digit shot attempts (8-of-13 tonight). He's efficient, so he's certainly worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 15 - 12:27 AM

DeMarre Carroll (rest) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

Thabo Sefolosha will get the start tonight, and he could serve as a decent low-budget plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Over four starts this season Sefolosha has averaged 10.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.0 block per game.
Jan 13 - 6:13 PM

DeMarre Carroll had a nice all-around game during Sunday's win over Washington, putting up 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting to go with four rebounds, four steals, one assist, two 3-pointers, and one turnover.

Carroll struggled during the month of December hitting just 40.7 percent of his shots, but has gotten things back on track in January with averages of 11.2 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.6 steals, and 1.2 three-pointers on 50.0 percent shooting.
Jan 11 - 7:16 PM

DeMarre Carroll suffered a right eye contusion on Wednesday, but has returned to the game late in the third quarter.

Great news for Carroll and his owners, as it looked like he could have broken his nose on the play. He's fine.
Jan 7 - 9:13 PM

DeMarre Carroll left Wednesday's game in the third quarter with an injury to his face.

There is speculation he was poked in the eye, but it's also possible he suffered a nose or eye socket injury. He's in the locker room being checked out and we'll let you know when we have more information.
Jan 7 - 8:59 PM

DeMarre Carroll made 6-of-8 from the field for 17 points with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

On the downside, he did make just 2-of-6 from the line. Carroll was in a slump and didn't make any treys in his previous three, which dropped his season shooting from beyond the arc to 37.9. He's been a serviceable end-of-the-bench guy in standard leagues.
Jan 6 - 2:06 AM

DeMarre Carroll (dehydration) will be active for Friday's game against the Jazz.

He missed Thursday's practice due to dehydration, but was never really expected to miss any time. He has a tough matchup against the Jazz tonight, and given his recent struggles, he'll be a risky option in daily leagues.
Jan 2 - 1:23 PM

Updating a previous report, DeMarre Carroll is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Utah.

Carroll was withheld from Thursday's practice due to dehydration, but head coach Mike Budenholzer said he did not expect him to miss any games. "He is getting some fluids and making sure he is hydrated," Budenholzer said. "Hopefully he’ll be good to go." It sounds like Carroll is more on the probable side of questionable, but owners will want to check back for an official update closer to Friday's tip.
