DeMarre Carroll returned from a day of rest and hit 4-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, five rebounds and three steals in 26 minutes of Saturday's ridiculous 128-84 romp over the Hawks.
This wasn't much of a revenge game for Carroll, but at least he played. He's still limited on back-to-back sets and wasn't great tonight, but is averaging 12.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 2.8 3-pointers in his last four games. He's worth owning and should be better once he's fully recovered from his knee is closer to 100 percent health. The Raptors are rolling, blowing out their last four opponents by a combined 119 points and winning six straight games. Dec 3 - 11:29 PM

DeMarre Carroll is back in the starting lineup against the Hawks on Saturday.

Revenge game? He had the night off against the Lakers on Friday, which was not a surprise with Carroll still limited on back-to-back sets. He's played very well lately, so he's worth a pickup in shallower leagues. Norman Powell will move to the bench.
Dec 3 - 6:36 PM

DeMarre Carroll (rest) will not play against the Lakers on Friday and Norman Powell will start in his place.

It's scheduled rest on the front end of a back-to-back set, so Carroll will get to play against his former team, the Hawks, on Saturday. With Carroll out, both Norman Powell and Terrence Ross should be flirting with 30 minutes. Ross has been very good on defense and should carry the second unit tonight. Both are great streaming options in a fantastic matchup.
Dec 2 - 5:55 PM

DeMarre Carroll will rest on either Friday or Saturday in the upcoming back-to-back set this weekend.

The rest day will decide on the matchup for the Raptors against the Lakers and Hawks. Both of the games are at home and there is a one day cushion on each end -- the Raptors played Wednesday and will play Monday after the back-to-back. It probably makes more sense to rest Carroll in the up-tempo game against the Lakers on Friday and he does have the revenge factor against the Hawks, too. When he sits, Terrence Ross would be a nice DFS option while Norman Powell also benefits. Carroll is worth owning again, especially with the Raptors possibly dropping the back-to-back restriction next month.
Dec 1 - 2:58 PM

A full year after his initial injury, DeMarre Carroll says he "feels great just to be healthy."

It was around this time last year - less than a month into his first season with Toronto - that Carroll initially hurt his knee. "I need my legs to knock down my 3-pointers. It just feels good to be healthy and be able to go out there and help my team win," Carroll said. He has scored 10 or more points in five straight games for the first time since joining the Raps. Over this recent stretch, he's averaging 14.4 points on 55 percent shooting, including 46 percent from beyond the arc. He's totaled five steals and five blocks over the last three contests. Carroll may be cleared to play in both games of back-to-back sets around the new year.

DeMarre Carroll scored 10 points with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes vs. the 76ers on Monday.

The game was over by the third quarter, so that explains the low minutes. Carroll was an efficient 4-of-5 from the field and didn't turn the ball over, and this was his fourth solid game in a row (not including his DNP-Rest on Nov. 21). He's averaging 15.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.3 blocks, 1.8 steals and 2.8 triples in that span, so he's clearly trending up. Coach Dwane Casey expects him to start playing in back-to-back sets around the new year, meaning he will miss either Friday's game vs. the Lakers or Saturday's game vs. the Hawks.
Nov 28 - 10:30 PM

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said that DeMarre Carroll may be cleared to play in both games of back-to-back sets around the new year.

"We don't want to push it right now," Casey said. Carroll has played much better lately with averages of 15.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 2.5 treys on 52.3 percent shooting in his last four appearances, but it's tough for fantasy owners to rely on him due to the limited workload. Looking ahead, the next back-to-back set on the schedule is on Friday vs. the Lakers and Saturday vs. the Hawks. He's trending up after a slow start to the season.
Nov 27 - 1:13 PM

DeMarre Carroll finished Friday's 105-99 win in Milwaukee with 14 points, four 3-pointers, one rebound and one assist.

Carroll was coming off a 20-point game and looked good again tonight, hitting 4-of-8 shots from deep. The lack of boards and assists is brutal, however, and he didn't have any defensive stats to make up the difference. He got off to a poor start this year and is likely to get more sporadic rest days, but he's worth a glance if you have an open roster spot.
Nov 25 - 10:37 PM

DeMarre Carroll returned from a rest day to score a season-high 20 points on Wednesday, making 9-of-14 shots in 27 minutes of action.

Carroll added four steals, three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers. He came in shooting just 39.5 percent from the field with a mere 3.9 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.4 blocks, so this is a tremendous leap in productivity for the struggling veteran. We'd like to see him do it a few more times before touting him as a pickup, but he has enough upside to be worth a look in most leagues.
Nov 24 - 12:04 AM

DeMarre Carroll is back in the starting lineup on Wednesday to face the Rockets.

He rested on Monday and the Raptors will continue to take it easy on him. Carroll just hasn't looked right and is a drop candidate in standard leagues. Terrence Ross takes a hit with Carroll back.
Nov 23 - 7:55 PM

DeMarre Carroll (rest) will not play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set and he was considered doubtful to play. With Carroll out, Norman Powell will draw the start and Terrence Ross will see a few extra minutes off the bench.
Nov 21 - 9:15 PM

DeMarre Carroll (rest) is not expected to play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

Coming off arguably the best game of his season on Sunday vs. the Kings with 17 points, three 3-pointers, four rebounds and two steals in 33 minutes, Carroll is expected to rest on the second night of a back-to-back set. The Raptors will likely turn to Norman Powell to start in order to keep Terrence Ross in his sixth man role off the bench, but both players are on the DFS radar for Monday.
Nov 21 - 9:48 AM

DeMarre Carroll scored a season-high 17 points during Sunday's heart-breaking road loss, knocking down 6-of-12 shots with three 3-pointers, four rebounds and two steals in 33 minutes.

The Raptors were expected to rest Carroll during one of their back-to-back games, which means he's questionable at best for Monday's game vs. the Clippers. Assuming he does sit out, Terrence Ross and Norman Powell stand to gain the most in his absence. Carroll hadn't played more than 24 minutes in a game since Oct. 28, which makes this an extremely encouraging sight for owners who have been clinging to his upside.
Nov 21 - 12:51 AM

DeMarre Carroll will play vs. the Kings on Sunday.

Carroll isn't injured but the Raptors will play it safe during a back-to-back set, so he's likely to pick up a DNP-CD on Monday.
Nov 20 - 9:03 PM

DeMarre Carroll is questionable to play vs. the Kings on Sunday.

It's the first half of a back-to-back set, and coach Dwane Casey only said "we'll see" when asked about Carroll's status. To be clear, Carroll isn't injured and the Raptors are just being cautious during consecutive games. If he plays on Sunday he's expected to sit out vs. the Clippers on Monday.
