DeMarre Carroll explained in a recent interview why he draws a heart on the floor before checking into games.
"When I was five years old, my older brother, DeLonte, passed away from a brain tumor," said Carroll. "He was only nine years old. I still think about him all the time... Every time I check into a game, when I walk up to the scorer's table, I draw a heart on the floor for him and then I kiss it before I go into the game. He's very big in my life." DeMarre had a breakout season with the Hawks last year, averaging 11.1 points, 1.3 three-pointers, 5.5 rebounds, and 1.5 steals a game while shooting a stellar 47.0 percent from the field. He's someone to target in the later rounds. Aug 15 - 6:46 PM

Hawks SF DeMarre Carroll plans to work on his shooting this summer, with the goal of becoming "automatic, like Kyle Korver."

"I want to be the African-American Kyle Korver," Carroll said, referring to his sharp-shooting Hawks teammate. Carroll is coming off a terrific season with career-high averages in points (11.1), FG percentage (47.0 percent), 3-pointers (1.3), rebounds (5.5), assists (1.8) and steals (1.5), numbers which added up to sneaky mid-round value in typical fantasy formats.
May 7 - 9:28 AM

DeMarre Carroll had 12 points, 10 rebounds, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in Saturday's Game 1 win at Indiana.

The final score was 101-93, but the game wasn't nearly that close, as the Hawks were up by about 20 points for most of the second half. Carroll is going to be a very tough match up for Paul George (6-of-18, 24 points), and is a key for the Hawks against the Pacers.
Apr 19 - 9:47 PM

DeMarre Carroll will be given the night off on Monday, with Cartier Martin taking over his starting SF spot.

Atlanta is locked into the eighth seed in the East so they're giving three starters some rest, with Paul Millsap and Kyle Korver joining Carroll on the sidelines. All three should be back in action for Wednesday's season finale.

DeMarre Carroll played through a hand injury on Saturday and filled the stat sheet with 17 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers.

He also played great defense on LeBron James tonight, as the Hawks were able to clinch a playoff berth with the win over the Heat.
Apr 13 - 12:54 AM

X-rays were negative on DeMarre Carroll's right hand on Friday.

There was really no indication of an injury during the game and the team was probably just playing it safe. Carroll turned in a nice game in a huge win vs. the Nets, scoring 12 points with 11 boards in 37 minutes. We'd expect him to play on Saturday vs. the Heat.
Apr 11 - 10:41 PM

DeMarre Carroll was saddled with foul trouble on Sunday, playing only 26 minutes in a convincing win at Indiana.

He had five points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, two steals and one block to scrape together some fantasy value, and his foul problems allowed Cartier Martin (nine points, five boards) to log 22 minutes off the bench.
Apr 6 - 8:32 PM

DeMarre Carroll played 29 minutes on Monday after a one-game absence, scoring nine points with five boards, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

He was probable for the game today after an illness kept him out of the lineup on Saturday. Carroll is hardly a household name, but he's put up plenty of steals and triples to warrant ownership in all standard formats.
Mar 31 - 11:19 PM

DeMarre Carroll (illness) is starting against the Sixers on Monday.

He missed Saturday's game and the Hawks really needed him back after losing their last six games. They're 13-point favorites tonight, so Las Vegas thinks that streak ends tonight. As for Carroll, get him in your lineup.
Mar 31 - 6:50 PM

DeMarre Carroll (illness) went through Monday's shootaround and should be ready to play vs. the 76ers.

He missed Saturday's game but his return to the court suggests he's recovered, and the Hawks can certainly use him in the starting lineup as they look to snap their six-game skid and maintain their slim hold on the East's eighth seed. It helps that they'll be hosting the woeful 76ers.
Mar 31 - 11:16 AM

DeMarre Carroll (illness) will not play vs. the Wizards on Saturday.

Mike Scott should move into the starting SF job and he's an intriguing short-term option. In four starts this season, Scott has averaged 11.8 points, 1.3 threes, 5.5 rebounds and 0.8 steals. Carroll should be ready to go for Monday's game, which kicks off a four-game week, but owners should check for updates on Sunday.
Mar 29 - 6:47 PM

DeMarre Carroll missed Saturday's shootaround due to illness and he'll be a game-time decision vs. the Wizards.

The Hawks have a five-game losing streak and they may have to try to break it without their starting SF, though owners should check back for a final update closer to tip-off. If he can't suit up, Mike Scott would likely shift into the starting lineup alongside Paul Millsap and Elton Brand or Pero Antic (ankle)
Mar 29 - 11:24 AM

DeMarre Carroll shot 5-of-6 from the field for 11 points with four boards, one assist and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes vs. the Blazers on Thursday.

His versatility has really helped his case for minutes. Carroll has logged 34.1 minutes per game since the break and has become a five-category player for points, boards, steals, treys and free throw shooting. He's a must-start guy.
Mar 27 - 9:50 PM

DeMarre Carroll had an efficient evening against the Suns on Monday with 19 points on just eight field goal attempts, adding four boards, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He made 5-of-8 from the field and all seven of his free throws in a turnover-free game. Carroll has really turned the corner this year and has been particularly hot over his last 10, averaging 12.9 points, 5.4 boards, 1.6 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.9 triples in his previous nine. The steals and treys have really solidified his value in standard leagues.
Mar 24 - 11:13 PM

DeMarre Carroll torched the Raptors for 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting in Sunday's matinee, while grabbing four rebounds and tying his career-high with five steals.

Carroll has been slumping in March, averaging just 10.8 points on 40.2 percent shooting, though his value has been supported by a penchant for 3-pointers (1.7 per game), rebounds (5.8) and steals (1.7). The Hawks play four times in each of the next three weeks, making Carroll a safe option in all but the shallowest leagues.
