DeMarre Carroll is feeling fully healthy for the first time in his Raptors career.
"Right now, I feel good," Carroll said. "No setbacks and mentally I feel good. I'm really ready to bypass the preseason and get to the season." The veteran forward added that he still feels like he has something to prove after a rocky first season in Toronto. "To me, I still feel like I’ve got a chip on my shoulder. Really, I’ve got a log on my shoulder. It’s bigger than a chip. I feel like last year I came in and started off thinking I was going to have a great season and then all of a sudden I get injured. Things change. I miss a bunch of games, setback, mentally I was never there. Physically I was definitely never there. It was hard." Maybe DC's new nickname should be "The Lumberjack." Jokes aside, he's shaping up as a nice value pick and potential bounce-back candidate for owners he didn't burn last season. "They [Raptors fans] haven’t really seen what I can do, how my energy can change a game, change the whole team’s momentum." Oct 15 - 3:50 PM

DeMarre Carroll (rest) will not play on Friday.

He's looked healthy this month and will get his second game off. Carroll is a terrific bounce-back candidate this season.
Oct 14 - 5:59 PM

DeMarre Carroll returned to action on Wednesday with two points, one rebound and one block in 15 minutes.

Carroll sat out Monday's game as a precaution, and the Raptors will likely give him another DNP or two as the preseason continues. He's still regaining his form and conditioning as he recovers from knee surgery, but he's expected to be in the starting lineup on opening night. Due to the injury risk, cautious owners should aim for Carroll in the later rounds.
Oct 6 - 1:10 AM

DeMarre Carroll will return from a rest day vs. the Clippers on Wednesday.

Carroll is working his way back from knee surgery and the Raptors are likely to be cautious with his playing time, though we haven't heard of any official minute-limit.
Oct 5 - 9:49 PM

DeMarre Carroll (rest) and Jared Sullinger (left foot) will not play against the Nuggets on Monday.

The Raptors learned their lesson last season with Carroll and playing him at less than 100 percent. We should see a little more out of Norman Powell and Terrence Ross.
Oct 3 - 7:49 PM

DeMarre Carroll looked healthy against the Warriors on Saturday, scoring 14 points with four rebounds, four steals and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes.

He missed 56 games last year due to his knee injury and didn't look right in the postseason. Carroll was never really in a rhythm at all last year and made just 38.9 percent from the field, but he's clearly gone on stretches of terrific output from his Hawks days. He's a very nice bounce-back player to take in the late rounds for his fantasy-friendly game.
Oct 1 - 10:15 PM

Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, DeMarre Carroll, Jared Sullinger and Jonas Valanciunas will start on Saturday.

This is expected to be the opening-night starting lineup. Carroll is expected to play without limitations, but don't expect much tonight. We'll keep an eye on if he gets decent minutes at the four.
Oct 1 - 7:06 PM

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.
Sep 26 - 11:10 AM

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.
May 27 - 11:29 PM

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.
