Raptors' DeMarre Carroll: Expects to play in preseason
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Carroll (knee) took part in the Raptors' first preseason practice Tuesday, Josh Lewenberg of TSN reports. Coach Dwane Casey said the team will monitor Carroll's minutes in the preseason, but he expects the forward to be ready for opening night with no limitations.

Carroll is still recovering from knee surgery last December, which limited him to 26 regular season games and impacted his effectiveness in the playoffs. Look for the team to take things as slow as needed with Carroll during training camp and the preseason to avoid another setback. For what it's worth, Carroll said he felt good during his first practice of camp, so things appear to be trending in the right direction.

Raptors' Delon Wright: Out until at least late December
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright (shoulder) is expected to be sidelined through at least late December, Blake Murphy of Raptors Republic reports.

Wright was ruled out for at least four months on Aug. 1 after undergoing surgery to repair a labral tear of his right shoulder, but because he'll likely need to regain conditioning once the shoulder has fully healed, an early December return doesn't seem overly realistic. On a positive note, Wright is hoping to get cleared for full range-of-motion activities later this week, so it appears he's more or less progressing as anticipated. While Wright is out, Fred Van Vleet or Brady Heslip is expected to make the Raptors' roster as a third-string option at point guard.

Raptors' Patrick Patterson: Likely to come off bench, but play big minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said Monday that while the starting power forward job is "[Jared Sullinger's] to lose," Patterson will still play starters' minutes, Josh Lewenberg of TSN reports.

The Raptors received limited production out of the combination of Luis Scola and Patrick Patterson at power forward last season, but Casey is optimistic that the dynamic of Sullinger and Patterson may work a little better. Though Sullinger lacks the shooting touch of Scola, he's a capable rebounder and interior scorer, while Patterson provides more of a floor-spacing element off the bench. Since Sullinger's defensive limitations figure to keep him below 30 minutes most nights, Patterson should be in good position to approach last season's average of 25.6 minutes per game.

Raptors' Jared Sullinger: Starting job is his to lose
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Coach Dwane Casey said Monday that the starting power forward job is "[Sullinger's to lose]," Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.

Sullinger joined the Raptors this offseason on a one-year, $5.62 million deal after spending the previous four seasons in Boston. He'll immediately be penciled into the starting lineup, replacing Luis Scola, who started 76 games for the Raptors last season. Casey clarified that Patrick Patterson will still hold an integral role, but the hope is that Sullinger and Jonas Valanciunas can be effective enough defensively to keep Patterson in a position where he can be optimized as a floor spacer off the bench.

Raptors' DeMarre Carroll: 'Still not 100 percent'
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Coach Dwane Casey said Monday that Carroll is "still not 100 percent" recovered from last season's arthroscopic procedure on his right knee, Josh Lewenberg of TSN reports.

The knee surgery limited Carroll to 26 games last season before he returned to the court prior to the start of the playoffs. While the Raptors advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals, it was clear that Carroll was less than fully healthy, and he also developed nagging wrist and ankle injuries near the end of Toronto's postseason run. Despite a four-month break, Carroll is apparently still recovering from the knee issue, but he noted that he's no longer dealing with swelling and is now focused on building strength, according to Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun. Casey indicated that the Raptors will limit Carroll's workload during camp, and his minutes will be monitored when the season begins.
