DeMarre Carroll said he is looking forward to guarding LeBron James during Wednesday's game against the Cavs.
"It's a great opportunity for me, great opportunity for this team," Carroll said. "Just to play the Cleveland Cavaliers, the best team in the East right now so if you can't get ready for this game, you're not a real NBA player." When Carroll was with the Hawks, he defeated James' teams four out of six times, and he'll look to make things difficult for James tonight. Carroll will likely spend most the evening guarding James, so offense will be an afterthought for The Junkyard Dog, making him a slightly less attractive play in daily leagues. Nov 25 - 2:07 PM

DeMarre Carroll was extremely effective during Sunday's win over the Clippers, tallying 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting (3-of-3 from the stripe), five boards, two 3-pointers, four steals and just one turnover through 39 minutes of action.

Carroll posted a sterling true shooting percentage of 71.1 in this one, and he didn't even miss a shot until the third quarter. DeMarre was recently quoted saying his foot is feeling "way better," after he was rested for three games in early-November, and the high minutes totals (36.2 minutes per game since his return) would indicate that the plantar fasciitis issue is now behind him. Unfortunately, the Raptors are headed for just a two-game week, so those in weekly formats may want to consider leaving The Junkyard Dog on their bench.

DeMarre Carroll made 2-of-8 from the field for seven points during a 93-89 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

Even though the shooting line isn't pretty, he was able to contribute some defense and treys. Carroll continues to struggle with his shot, but there's been no indication of him still dealing with his foot injury. He's still a buy-low guy.
Nov 19 - 12:11 AM

DeMarre Carroll recorded six steals in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors, adding 17 points, two assists, two boards and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

Carroll has now played in three straight games after missing time due to plantar fasciitis, and the fact that he played 39 minutes tonight is a very encouraging sign. Carroll is known for his toughness and he should be fine going forward, so expect his fantasy value to start trending up.
Nov 18 - 1:58 AM

DeMarre Carroll scored 17 points in a tough road loss at Sacramento, making 6-of-13 shots with four 3-pointers, four rebounds and one steal.

Carroll came in shooting an uncharacteristic 34.4 percent from the field, possibly because of the plantar fasciitis he played through to begin the season. He's looked healthy in two games since returning to action, however, and it shouldn't take long for his rock-bottom fantasy rank to creep toward the middle rounds.
Nov 15 - 11:54 PM

DeMarre Carroll (foot) said that he is feeling "way better than I did before."

Carroll had total rest from basketball activities leading up to his return from a three-game absence on Friday against the Pelicans, and he made it clear how hard it was for him to miss any action. "I think if it was up to me, I still would’ve been playing," Carroll said. "But the coaches, the training staff, my agent, they basically made me." Carroll scored 11 points with five boards, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes on Friday and will look to build off that momentum on the Raptors upcoming road trip.

DeMarre Carroll (foot) returned after a three-game absence and made 5-of-14 from the field for 11 points against the Pelicans on Friday, adding five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

He picked up where he left off with his playing time. The Raptors absolutely love his defense and they can live with him shooting below 35 percent on the season. Carroll shot 48.7 percent from the field last year, so expect him to start climbing in that department soon. Consider this as an adjustment period with his new team and he should be a must-start player soon.
Nov 14 - 12:57 AM

DeMarre Carroll (foot) will start against the Pelicans on Friday.

He has been out a week and apparently that was enough. Carroll went through warmups and got the OK from his training staff. Carroll can be placed back into fantasy starting lineups while James Johnson will see a lot less run and can be dropped in most leagues.
Nov 13 - 6:29 PM

DeMarre Carroll (foot) is considered questionable to play on Friday vs. the Pelicans.

Plantar fasciitis is no joke and Carroll will likely need a lot of rest for it to properly heal, so his status for tonight's game is probably closer to doubtful. If he can't go, James Johnson will continue to start and see around 30 minutes of action, while Cory Joseph has also seen an uptick in minutes off the bench as well and is worth a look if you need a guard.
Nov 13 - 11:48 AM

DeMarre Carroll (foot) and Terrence Ross (thumb) will not play on Wednesday against the 76ers.

It's the 76ers, so it makes sense to give Carroll another couple days off with his plantar fasciitis. With Carroll out tonight, that gives him a full week off before Friday's game against the Pelicans. James Johnson saw 29 minutes on Tuesday, but coach Dwane Casey has kept him on a short leash numerous times. Cory Joseph will also get more minutes. Johnson is still a nice play as long as you're aware it's not a sure thing.
Nov 11 - 4:13 PM

DeMarre Carroll (plantar fasciitis) and Terrence Ross (sprained left thumb) will not play on Tuesday.

Plantar fasciitis tends to linger, so it would be a surprise to see Carroll play on Wednesday vs. the 76ers as well. James Johnson will continue to start and is worth a look for any owner in need of boards, blocks and steals.
Nov 10 - 6:46 PM

DeMarre Carroll (plantar fasciitis) will be a true game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with the Knicks.

With the only real remedy for plantar fasciitis being rest, we're going to consider Carroll much closer to doubtful for tonight's matchup with the 3-4 Knicks, but we won't likely have official confirmation until just before tip-off. James Johnson and Corey Joseph will be the primary beneficiaries if Carroll does indeed miss Tuesday's contest.
Nov 10 - 6:01 PM

DeMarre Carroll (plantar fasciitis) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

There is a good chance Carroll sits on Tuesday as plantar fasciitis is an injury that can linger and is only cured by rest. If Carroll sits, Terrence Ross or James Johnson would likely assume his spot in the starting lineup, with Cory Joseph also seeing an uptick in minutes.

DeMarre Carroll (plantar fasciitis) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Heat.

Plantar fasciitis is not a word fantasy owners ever want to see, as the only real cure is prolonged rest. We'll be considering him doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks, and it'll likely be Terrence Ross or James Johnson entering the starting lineup for tonight's matchup with the Heat. Ross really struggles with consistency, and basically only scores, so he's not a great pickup in standard leagues despite the increased opportunity. Cory Joseph, who is coming off a 19-point performance, could also see his minutes increased sans DeMarre.

DeMarre Carroll (plantar fasciitis) is questionable to play against the Heat on Sunday.

He revealed he has been dealing with it for 10 days. The best medicine for plantar fasciitis is rest, so maybe the Raptors hold him out until Tuesday to give him three days off. If he is out, we should see more Terrence Ross in the starting lineup. The Raptors would also use a lot more two-PG lineups with Kyle Lowry and Cory Joseph.
