DeMarre Carroll (hip) and Joe Harris (ankle) will sit out Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Celtics.
With both these guys unavailable on Wednesday, Spencer Dinwiddie could be headed for another start with more minutes falling to Nik Stauskas in the second unit. Carroll had a nice bounce-back season in Brooklyn this year, posting top-100 value behind averages of 13.5 points, 2.0 triples, 6.5 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.4 turnovers per contest on 41.3% shooting.

DeMarre Carroll (hip) will not play on Monday vs. the Bulls.

The Nets continue to rule him out a day in advance and we'd be surprised to see him play in the season finale on Wednesday as well. Allen Crabbe and Joe Harris are the winners here, while Rondae Hollis-Jefferson also gets a bump.
Apr 8 - 5:11 PM

DeMarre Carroll (hip) will not play on Saturday against the Bulls.

With the season winding down, there's a good chance Carroll is done for the year. Joe Harris should start in his place and has been worth owning in most leagues. Allen Crabbe is also in a good spot and the same for Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.
Apr 6 - 7:10 PM

DeMarre Carroll (left hip) will be day-to-day for the remainder of the season.

The Nets have nothing to play for and don't own their own first-round pick, and they are usually one of the most cautious teams in the NBA. He has already been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Bucks, so it makes sense for fantasy owners to pick up someone else for the time being. Look for the Nets to use a committee approach to soak up Carroll's minutes with guys like Joe Harris, Quincy Acy and Dante Cunningham getting a bump.
Apr 5 - 10:33 AM

DeMarre Carroll (left hip) will not play Thursday against the Bucks.

He suffered the injury on Tuesday and it's possible he could miss more time. With Carroll out of the lineup, there should be more minutes for Joe Harris, Dante Cunningham and possibly Quincy Acy.
Apr 4 - 5:01 PM

DeMarre Carroll (left hip strain) will not return to Tuesday's game.

The veteran was down for a few minutes and waived off Amir Johnson's initial attempt to help him get up. He didn't put weight on the leg while leaving and although we'll reserve judgement about the severity, the Nets have nothing to gain by rushing him back at the end of the season. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Dante Cunningham even Quincy Acy should pick up minutes if Carroll misses games.

DeMarre Carroll ended up with just two points across 37 minutes in Saturday's 110-109 overtime win in Miami.

The Nets pulled out a thrilling overtime victory on the road, but Carroll played no part. He was just 1-of-9 from the field, including 0-of-5 from behind the arc, while grabbing just three rebounds with two assists, a steal, one turnover and four personal fouls. The Junkyard Dog was just junk in this one, but he had been sailing along pretty nicely. Chalk it up as one bad game. He won't have to stew about this loss for long as he gets a chance to redeem himself Sunday against the Pistons.
Apr 1 - 12:35 AM

DeMarre Carroll had another strong game on Wednesday with 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting, 12 rebounds, two assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.

Carroll continues to defy expectations as a bounce-back veteran playing for a bad team. Brooklyn owns the 7th-worst record after tonight's win, but fortunately they don't have incentive to lose since Cleveland controls their top draft pick. The only bad news is that Brooklyn doesn't play again until Saturday.
Mar 28 - 10:37 PM

DeMarre Carroll scored 18 points on 5-of-10 shooting in Sunday's loss to the Cavs, adding two 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 34 minutes.

Carroll was the only starter to reach double-figures in the scoring department through the first half of action, and he did a really nice job of attacking the rack and finishing through contact. March has been Carroll’s best month thus far, as he’s come through with averages of 15.5, 2.5 triples, 7.2 boards, 1.6 assists and 1.3 turnovers per contest on 46.2% shooting, which has been good enough for sixth-round value in 9-cat leagues.
Mar 25 - 4:29 PM

DeMarre Carroll said that he feels rejuvenated this season.

"I’m feeling good," Carroll said. "This is the best I’ve felt in my career. I feel like playing with these young guys is rejuvenating me and making me feel even younger. I’ve just got to keep trying to show these guys by example, rather than doing the talking." Carroll has found the form that he had back in Atlanta and is having a career year with averages of 13.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.0 triples. Not bad for a player that was called a "salary dump" following his departure from Toronto.
Mar 22 - 10:57 AM

DeMarre Carroll double-doubled with 19 points and 12 rebounds on Saturday, adding four 3-pointers, three assists and one steal in a home win vs. Dallas.

Carroll was terrific tonight, making 7-of-12 shots with four 3-pointers and zero turnovers in 36 minutes of action. He's defying expectations as a veteran on a losing team, but the Nets' lack of incentive in the draft lottery (Cleveland controls their pick) is really working in his favor. Fantasy owners should ride him into the sunset.
Mar 17 - 10:33 PM

DeMarre Carroll finally cooled off on Sunday with six points on 1-of-9 shooting, going 4-of-4 at the FT line with six rebounds, one block and one turnover in 25 minutes.

This was a forgettable game all-around for the Nets, who were trounced 120-97 on their home court. It wasn't all bad news for Carroll's owners -- prior to the game, coach Kenny Atkinson confirmed that he likes Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Caris LeVert coming off the bench, which should ensure that Carroll keeps his current starting job. He should fare better vs. his former Raptors teammates on Tuesday.

DeMarre Carroll finished with 15 points, five rebounds, three assists, two treys, three steals and a block in Thursday's win over Charlotte.

Carroll seems to fly under the radar, but he's been a very productive fantasy contributor. He's tallied at least 15 points and five boards in six straight games. Over Brooklyn's last 12 contests, Carroll is averaging 16.3 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 3.0 made 3-pointers. He ranks inside the top-50 overall in nine-category fantasy leagues over the last month.
Mar 8 - 9:54 PM

DeMarre Carroll hit 7-of-19 shots and 2-of-10 3-pointers for 19 points, seven rebounds, two assists and a steal in 28 minutes of Tuesday's 114-101 loss to the Warriors.

Despite the Nets having nothing to play for, they're effectively losing games (albeit competitively) with Carroll out there, and he's kind of on fire, averaging 19 points, 7.2 boards, 3.0 assists, 0.6 steals and 3.6 3-pointers on 52 percent shooting over his last five games. The run could come to a halt at any time, but he's been killing it, and should be in all fantasy starting lineups until further notice.
Mar 7 - 1:03 AM

DeMarre Carroll scored 20 points with seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes on Sunday, as the Nets fell 123-120 in L.A.

Carroll shot 6-of-12 from the field with all of his makes coming beyond the arc -- that tied his career-high for made 3-pointers. At age 31, Carroll has the distinction of being the Nets' oldest player, yet he's thriving at a time when most veterans on bad teams are fading away. Over the past four games, he's averaged 19.0 points, 4.0 triples, 7.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.3 blocks, with 57.8% FGs and 80.0% FTs. Ride him until the wheels fall off.
