DeMarre Carroll hit just 1-of-6 shots for three points, four rebounds and a steal in 14 minutes on Saturday.
It looks like he's the starting small forward and had a surprising season last year. He's worth a look late in drafts, but it remains to be seen if he'll be needed to score as much with Al Horford eventually back for the Hawks. Our guess is he won't be as valuable this season as we was last year. Oct 11 - 10:56 PM

Date:

DeMarre Carroll (ankle) will not play Monday vs. New Orleans.

Thabo Sefolosha will draw the start in Carroll's place, but the injury is not serious, and Carroll will likely be 100 percent by the start of the regular season. Carroll was nice last year, as he averaged a respectable 11.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.3 three-pointers, and 1.5 steals, but his value is going to take a big hit with the return of Al Horford (pectoral). Carroll is a late-round flier at best in standard leagues.
Oct 6 - 7:12 PM

DeMarre Carroll (ankle) is a game-time decision for Monday night.

He was previously listed as out after spraining his ankle on Saturday. Carroll should be ready to go for the season opener, but his role on offense figures to take a big hit with Al Horford (pectoral) back in the lineup.

DeMarre Carroll (ankle) is listed as out for Monday's exhibition opener.

He twisted his ankle during a practice on Saturday so the Hawks are going to give him a rest on Monday. Carroll was a solid value pick for many owners in deep leagues last year but may have a hard time repeating those stats with Sefolosha and Bazemore now in the fold. Still, he may not be a bad pick towards the end of your drafts.

DeMarre Carroll suffered a twisted ankle in practice on Saturday.

The severity is not known and the team will likely update him before Monday. Carroll really stepped up for the short-handed Hawks, but they probably won't need to count on him while Al Horford is on the court. He's a low-upside player late in drafts and most owners should look elsewhere.

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.

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.
