Dwane Casey said that he's expecting DeMarre Carroll (knee) to be "ready to go without limitations" for Toronto's regular-season opener.
Carroll was a full participant during Tuesday morning's practice, and said that he's happy because he hasn't experienced any setbacks this time around. Carroll never really looked right during his first year in Toronto, compiling averages of 11.0 points, 4.7 boards, 1.7 steals and 1.8 treys while hitting just 38.9 percent of his shot attempts through 26 games, but things are beginning to trend in a positive direction lately. Carroll does have bounce-back potential, so he's someone to consider towards the later rounds. Sep 27 - 5:22 PM

DeMarre Carroll (knee) still isn't 100 percent and his minutes will be monitored at training camp.

He had in-season knee surgery in 2015-16 and battled through a hyperextended elbow, sprained wrist, hip pointer and a twisted ankle. He admitted that he was only 70-75 percent healthy during the playoffs, but it's a concern that he's not 100 percent after several months off. The only bit of good news that Carroll had was that the swelling in his knee is no longer there. He says he's on track for the season opener, but despite his mid-round upside, it's best to let Carroll fall into the later rounds following this report. He averaged 11.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.8 triples in 28 total appearances last season.

DeMarre Carroll said that he was only 70-75 percent healthy during the playoffs.

After returning from in-season knee surgery, Carroll battled through a hyperextended elbow, sprained wrist, hip pointer and a twisted ankle. He couldn't get into a rhythm on offense and couldn't contain LeBron James during the Eastern Conference Finals, but give him credit for playing through his ailments. If Carroll can get his body right during the summer, he could be available at a nice discount in fantasy drafts next season.
May 28 - 12:24 PM

DeMarre Carroll scored seven points with six rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

He looked to tweak his knee in the first half, but he was able to play through it. Carroll did not have the season the Raptors wanted due to numerous injuries, keeping him to only 26 games during the regular season. He also struggled with his shot during the postseason. It took a while for Carroll to earn a significant role in his career, so he'll enter next season as an age-28 wing. He'll be sliding in fantasy drafts, so he could be a bargain.

DeMarre Carroll scored seven points with five rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

He was one of the better defenders on LeBron James over the past couple seasons, but not this time around. Carroll's knee injury may be limiting him with two really bad games in this series.
May 19 - 11:18 PM

DeMarre Carroll struggled mightily in Tuesday's Game 1 loss to the Cavaliers, scoring two points on 1-of-5 shooting with one rebound, one assist, one block and two steals in 20 minutes.

You could argue that this was his worst game of the season. He was repeatedly torched on the defensive end by LeBron James and got into some foul trouble, and he also failed to connect on any of his three 3-point attempts. Coach Dwane Casey admitted this week that he still hasn't fully recovered from his in-season knee surgery, but the Raptors will need much more from Carroll for them to have a chance in this series.
May 17 - 11:22 PM

DeMarre Carroll (ankle) said he's feeling better in advance of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday.

Carroll admitted that he'd do better on two days rest than one, but will be ready to play against the Cavaliers on Tuesday. Carroll will have a tough assignment guarding LeBron James, but should be able to put up solid numbers coming off 14 points, five rebounds, two assists, and two treys in Game 7 against Miami.
May 17 - 11:22 AM

DeMarre Carroll was ultra-efficient during Sunday's Game 7 win over Miami, scoring 14 points on 4-of-5 shooting to go with five boards, two assists and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

With the way he played today, you wouldn’t know that he was dealing with a sprained wrist and gimpy ankle. Carroll knocked down some clutch shots for Toronto, and he also was a perfect 4-of-4 from the charity stripe, giving him a ridiculous true shooting percentage of 103.6. Carroll will likely spend a lot of time defending LeBron James during the Eastern Conference Finals, which could limit his output on the offensive end.
May 15 - 6:58 PM

DeMarre Carroll (ankle, wrist) will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's Game 7 against the Heat.

The Raptors will go with a starting five of Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Patrick Patterson and Bismack Biyombo for Game 7. Carroll is clearly at less than 100 percent, and he only managed to get on the court for 25 minutes during Game 6, but the Raptors are going to need everything they can get from Carroll if they hope to pull out a Game 7 win today.

Coach Dwane Casey said DeMarre Carroll hurt his ankle in Game 6 on Friday.

This might explain why Carroll only played 25 minutes and didn't close out the game on Friday. Carroll should be good to go for Game 7, but he might be limited based on how he's also dealing with a bruised wrist. It'll be Cory Joseph, Terrence Ross and maybe Norman Powell possibly stepping up.
May 14 - 6:20 PM

DeMarre Carroll scored five points wth six rebounds, one block, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 25 minutes agains the Heat on Friday.

The Raptors went with more of Terrence Ross in this game while even James Johnson took some minutes from Carroll. He said he wasn't limited before the game, but he didn't really seem interested in scoring. He's not the best punt anymore.
May 13 - 10:49 PM

DeMarre Carroll will start on Friday in Game 6 against the Heat.

He doesn't use his left hand or dribble often, so Carroll should be OK for this one. If he has any problems, Norman Powell would likely be called upon. Carroll should still be a good bet for minutes in the 35-38 range tonight.
May 13 - 7:58 PM

DeMarre Carroll (wrist) will play against the Heat on Friday and said he won't be limited.

He doesn't use his left hand much, so this injury might not bother him too much. Carroll should play minutes in the upper 30s tonight and have to guard Dwyane Wade a lot. He's only a punt play in DFS.
May 13 - 7:11 PM

DeMarre Carroll (wrist) is likely to play on Friday, according to coach Dwane Casey.

He has a left wrist contusion and was unable to return on Wednesday. Carroll wasn't involved in the offense even before the injury, so he's likely going to see very limited opportunity to score. If he is limited on minutes, Norman Powell and Terrence Ross will play more.
May 13 - 6:36 PM

DeMarre Carroll (wrist) is a game-time call for Game 6 on Friday.

He will test his wrist at the morning shootaround, but most reports have indicated that Carroll is expected to play. X-rays and additional tests came back negative, and the Raptors are simply calling it a contusion at this point. Expect Carroll to see his normal workload tonight.
