DeMarre Carroll scored 12 points with six rebounds and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.
He played some minutes at the four again and that might have to continue. It might not be a wild idea to start Carroll at the four and Powell on the wing, so that way they can get Luis Scola out of the lineup. Carroll might be in play for DFS now that he's coming around. Apr 23 - 5:58 PM

DeMarre Carroll scored 17 points on 7-of-16 shooting in Thursday's win over the Pacers, adding five rebounds, one block, one steal and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He played less than 20 minutes in Game 1 and Game 2, but the Raptors set him loose tonight and he ended up logging his most minutes since Nov. 29. Carroll looked solid on both ends of the floor even though he was a bit winded, and the fact that his minute restrictions appear to be lifted means that fantasy owners can finally feel confident about deploying him in lineups again.
Apr 21 - 10:59 PM

DeMarre Carroll played 20 minutes in the starting lineup on Monday against the Pacers, scoring two points with two rebounds and one assist.

After the game, coach Dwane Casey confirmed Carroll is not 100 percent. He picked up two quick fouls and never got into an offensive rhythm. Norman Powell has arguably been the best wing on the Raptors and he may have earned more run. Carroll won't be a reliable fantasy option even as a starter.
Apr 18 - 10:14 PM

DeMarre Carroll will start on Monday in Game 2 with Norman Powell moving to the bench.

The Raptors put DeMar DeRozan on Paul George and it worked out terribly. Expect for Carroll to get minutes in the upper 20s tonight with coach Dwane Casey saying his small forward will see more minutes. He's in play for DFS, but his upside isn't great.
Apr 18 - 6:18 PM

DeMarre Carroll will see an uptick in minutes in Game 2 on Monday vs. the Pacers according to coach Dwane Casey.

The Raptors are expected to stick with the same starting five of Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Norman Powell, Luis Scola and Jonas Valanciunas, but this means that Carroll could take a few more minutes away from both Powell and Scola. Carroll only played 19 minutes in Game 1, but he looked fine and even said that he wants the assignment of guarding Paul George. He likely won't see a major bump in minutes because the Raptors are still being cautious with his knee, so he's a risky fantasy option.

DeMarre Carroll played 19 minutes off the bench against the Pacers on Saturday, scoring six points with two rebounds, one assist and one turnover.

He actually saw a few minutes at the four next to both Bismack Biyombo in the third and Jonas Valanciunas in the fourth. The Pacers had some success going small against the Raptors today, so that will be something to watch. Coach Dwane Casey has some work to do on his rotation.
Apr 16 - 3:37 PM

DeMarre Carroll is coming off the bench against the Pacers on Saturday and is expected to play 15-20 minutes, according to ESPN's Israel Gutierrez.

There is some talk of him getting a bump in minutes after missing 56 games with his knee injury this season, but it sounds like it won't be today. It'll be very interesting to see how coach Dwane Casey uses his second wing spot across from DeMar DeRozan with Norman Powell and Terrence Ross stepping up. Powell, will start.
Apr 16 - 12:15 PM

DeMarre Carroll (rest) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Nets as expected.

He asked the Raptors if he could play vs. the Nets because his knee is feeling good, but the Raptors want to be cautious on the second night of a back-to-back set. Carroll finished with eight points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers vs. the 76ers on Tuesday. Expect Norman Powell to pick up some extra minutes on Wednesday.
Apr 12 - 10:46 PM

DeMarre Carroll is feeling good and is hopeful his minutes limit will be lifted in the postseason.

That means he'll have a minutes cap for at least two games in the regular season. Carroll won't be a fantasy option this year unless you're streaming, but keep an eye on him for postseason fantasy. Norman Powell should have a couple more games to showcase what he can do.
Apr 11 - 2:16 PM

DeMarre Carroll logged 17 minutes vs. New York on Sunday, scoring five points (1-of-4 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with five boards, one assist, one steal and one block.

Carroll was expected to play in two of the Raptors' final three games, so he'll almost certainly sit out on either Tuesday or Wednesday. His return is terrific news for the Raptors as they gear up for a deep playoff run, but owners who stashed Carroll wound up with almost nothing to show for it.
Apr 10 - 10:28 PM

DeMarre Carroll (rest, knee) will play on Sunday vs. the Knicks.

Carroll is expected to play in two out of the Raptors' three remaining games, meaning he may sit out on Tuesday vs. the 76ers or Wednesday vs. the Nets. Carroll's minutes will be limited once again tonight, so he's not worth deploying outside of deeper formats.
Apr 10 - 6:39 PM

DeMarre Carroll (rest, knee) will likely play in two out of the three remaining games for the Raptors.

Carroll rested on the second night of a back-to-back set on Friday vs. the Pacers, so he should be back in the rotation on Sunday vs. the Knicks. With Norman Powell playing well in the starting lineup, the Raptors will continue to bring Carroll along slowly. He's hopeful to play around 25-30 minutes when the postseason starts, but that may be a little too ambitious. Carroll isn't worth using in most fantasy formats while he's still under playing time restrictions.

DeMarre Carroll (rest, knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Pacers as expected.

Coach Dwane Casey said that Carroll is feeling good after playing 14 minutes vs. the Hawks on Thursday, but the Raptors don't want to play him on the second night of a back-to-back set. The Raptors have three more games after Friday including another back-to-back set, so we can expect to see him play in two more games before the postseason.
Apr 8 - 5:53 PM

DeMarre Carroll returned on Thursday against the Hawks with five points, one rebound, four steals and one 3-pointer in 14 minutes.

The stat line isn't important here for a major piece on the Raptors. Carroll did show some explosiveness on dribble-drives and played good defense. He won't have fantasy value worth using in most cases the rest of the way, but keep an eye on him in DFS for the postseason. He'll be a bounce-back candidate next year, too.
Apr 7 - 11:10 PM

DeMarre Carroll (knee) will be available to play Thursday vs. the Hawks,

Head coach Dwane Casey would not commit to Carroll actually taking the court tonight, so while he'll be available, he could be headed for a DNP-CD. Carroll has spent the past 41 games on the sidelines, so if he does get out there, it'll be in a very limited capacity. With so much uncertainty surrounding his status for tonight's game, he's not a great option in most leagues.
