    Raptors' DeMarre Carroll: Breaks out for 17 points in Game 3 victory

    Carroll produced 17 points (7-16 FG, 3-9 3Pt), five rebounds, a steal and a block over 35 minutes in Thursday's 101-85 Game 3 victory over the Pacers. The veteran forward finally looked like himself Thursday, playing a full allotment of minutes and taking double-digit shot attempts for the first time since his return from a 41-game absence due to arthroscopic knee surgery. Carroll provided some much-needed scoring punch that served as the perfect complement to the efforts of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, with the latter also putting together a resurgent effort. Perhaps most important was the fact that Carroll was able to endure a 35-minute stint on the court, a fact that bodes well for the Raptor's postseason aspirations.

    Raptors' DeMarre Carroll: Starts in Game 2

    Carroll will start Game 2 against the Pacers on Monday, Doug Smith of the Toronto Star reports. Carroll was rumored to see more minutes in Game 2 after playing just 19 in Game 1, and his insertion into the starting five certainly coincides with him receiving more time on the court after battling a lingering knee injury for much of the season. After getting torched by Paul George in Game 1, Norman Powell heads back to the bench while Carroll will be tasked with trying to stymie George after his 33-point performance in Game 1.

    Raptors' DeMarre Carroll: Will play more minutes Monday

    Carroll is expected to play more minutes Monday against the Pacers, according to head coach Dwayne Casey, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports. After playing just 19 minutes in the Raptors' Game 1 loss, it looks as if Carroll is going to get a heavier workload. While Carroll is known for his defensive prowess and will likely matchup with Paul George, Casey said he will get "many different looks." Casey also said that he is likely going to use the same starters from Game 1, meaning Carroll will be set to come off the bench once again.

    Raptors' DeMarre Carroll: Will rest Wednesday

    Carroll (rest) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Nets, the Toronto Sun's Ryan Wolstat reports. The team is wisely sitting Carroll to get him rested for a first round matchup against Paul George and the Pacers. Carroll has been eased back, but the Raptors will likely get as much as they can out of him in the postseason, presumably in the 25-30 minute range in the first few games. Norman Powell and Terrence Ross should see the bulk of the minutes at small forward, with Luis Scola and Patrick Patterson hogging the minutes at the four in the regular season finale.

    Raptors' DeMarre Carroll: Hopes to have minutes restriction lifted for playoffs

    Carroll indicated Monday that his right knee has felt strong in his two games since returning from arthroscopic surgery, and he hopes to have his minutes restriction lifted by the time the playoffs begin, Josh Lewenberg of TSN reports. The Raptors initially suggested that they were hoping to have Carroll available for around 25-to-30 minutes per game during the postseason, but with the forward stating that he's feeling better than anticipated through his first two games back, the team may be a little more aggressive with his usage. After playing 14 minutes last Thursday against the Hawks and 17 minutes three days later against the Knicks, Carroll should see his workload increased over the Raptors' final two regular-season contests, after which his condition will likely be reassessed. Norman Powell would lose the most value if Carroll eventually returns to a full-time starting role in the playoffs.

    Raptors' DeMarre Carroll: Will play Sunday against Knicks

    Carroll (rest) will play Sunday against the Knicks, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports. Carroll will play in just his second game since returning returning from arthroscopic knee surgery in early January. At this point, the Raptors have clinched the two-seed in the Eastern Conference, and their focus will most likely be to ease the forward into his regular role. A minutes restriction is likely for Sunday's game, so tread lightly with Carroll in daily leagues.

    Raptors' DeMarre Carroll: Will rest on Friday

    Carroll has been ruled out of Friday's game against the Pacers in order to rest. Carroll returned to the court on Thursday for the first time in over three months. He played in 14 minutes off the bench but the Raptors will take precaution with his workload, giving him Friday night off. Carroll said he is hopeful to play 25-30 minutes a game when the playoffs roll around. Until then, look for him to gradually see increased action, with the possibility of receiving nights off as the regular season winds down.

    Raptors' DeMarre Carroll: Aiming to play 25-30 MPG in playoffs

    Carroll (knee) says he wants to be ready to play 25-30 minutes a game by the time the playoffs begin, Toronto Sun reports. He made a quick impact off the bench in his long-awaited return to action from arthroscopic knee surgery, scoring five points (2-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt) with four steals and a rebound in just 14 minutes, but with just four games remaining on the schedule, Carroll doesn't have much time to shake off his rust after sitting for half the season. Norman Powell has also emerged in his absence as a viable starting small forward, but the Raptors would probably prefer their big offseason acquisition to regain his starting job in time for the postseason.

    Raptors' DeMarre Carroll: Available on Thursday

    Carroll (knee) is active and will be available off the bench for Thursday's matchup with the Hawks. Carroll has missed the Raptors' previous 41 games after have arthroscopic knee surgery on his right knee. He was originally expected to be out on Thursday but was upgraded to questionable and finally to active. It's unclear how much he'll play. He shouldn't be expected to play major minutes in his first game back, the team will likely ease him back into the lineup with the playoffs right around the corner.

    Raptors' DeMarre Carroll: Listed as questionable

    Carroll (knee) is listed as questionable on the Raptors' game notes for Thursday against the Hawks, Chris Vivlamore of the Journal-Constitution reports. Reports earlier in the week suggest Carroll could be back as early as Sunday in New York, but it appears he may have an outside chance to see the court Thursday. Carroll was initially listed as "out" on the game notes earlier in the day, however, so his status is still clouded, at best. For what it's worth, Carroll, himself, has stated that his goal is to play in two or three games before the end of the regular season, but neither he nor the team has designated a firm return date. Look for a more definitive update as game-time approaches, though even if Carroll is available, he's best avoided in daily formats.
