Carroll (illness) will be available for Thursday's game against the Clippers.
Carroll had been nursing an illness that initially resulted in a questionable designation, but he'll be available Thursday night off the bench for one of the Rockets' biggest games of the season. However, Carroll did not appear in either of the team's last two games.
Carroll is questionable for Thursday's game against the Clippers due to an illness, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.
Carroll has appeared in three games for the Rockets since joining the team following the All-Star break, posting averages of 4.0 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 15.0 minutes during those contests. His status should clear up closer to game time Thursday.
Carroll is available for Thursday's game against the Warriors, Craig Ackerman of the Rockets' radio network reports.
Carroll has officially joined the team, and could see minutes immediately with Eric Gordon (lower leg) ruled out. Carroll has only played in 15 games this season, all with the Spurs, and has averaged 2.2 points in nine minutes per game.
Carroll, who agreed to a contract buyout with the Spurs on Monday, is expected to sign a contract with the Rockets once he clears waivers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
This was expected, as Carroll had been inactive for 15 straight games with the Spurs prior to the All-Star break. Assuming he lands with Houston upon clearing waivers, Carroll should benefit from more consistent run after appearing in just 15 games with San Antonio, during which he averaged 2.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in 9.0 minutes. Carroll will likely operate as a backup power forward for Houston, though he may also get some run as a small-ball center.
Carroll suggested last week that he would be open to buyout from the Spurs if he's able to find another team more willing to give him playing time, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports. "I don't know what direction we are going to go," Carroll said, "but at the end of the day, at 33 [years old], I don't want to waste my talents just sitting at the end of the bench, knowing I could help a team produce."
Carroll inked a three-year, $21 million deal with San Antonio over the summer, which includes $8 million guaranteed for the next two seasons. As such, Carroll might have to leave a good deal of money on the table if he wants to play elsewhere, as the Spurs seemingly have no plans to include the veteran forward in their rotation anytime soon. He's been inactive for 15 straight contests and has only seen the floor in 15 of the Spurs' 54 games to date, averaging 2.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in 9.0 minutes in those appearances.
Carroll (illness) is off the injury report ahead of Friday's matchup against the Suns, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports.
Carroll has missed the past two games due to an illness. That said, his role has been minimal when healthy, so his presence Friday shouldn't affect things much.
Carroll (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against New Orleans, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
Carroll will miss his second straight game due to illness. He's had a hard time finding minutes even when healthy, as he hasn't appeared in a game since Jan. 8 against Boston.
Carroll won't play Monday against Phoenix due to an illness, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
It appears as though the bug has swept through the Spurs recently, as teammate Rudy Gay will also miss Monday's game due to an illness. The former Missouri standout's absence Monday won't likely affect the rotation at all though; Carroll has found himself buried on the depth chart while playing in just two out of the past 12 matchups for the Spurs.
Carroll (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Heat, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
With youngsters Keldon Johnson, Chimezie Metu and Drew Eubanks back from stints with the G League's Austin Spurs, Carroll will don street clothes as a healthy inactive. It's the second time in as many games Carroll hasn't dressed for a contest, suggesting the Spurs don't view the 33-year-old as part of their near- nor long-term plans. The Spurs could be eager to deal Carroll ahead of the Feb. 6 trade deadline, assuming they can find a suitor willing to take on the money remaining on the three-year, $20.65 million deal the forward signed last summer.
Carroll did not play in Friday's 134-121 loss to the Grizzlies.
Since early December, Carroll has been following a pattern of sitting five games out and then playing a few minutes in back-to-back games. He was the only Spur not to see the court on the evening.
Carroll did not see the floor in Friday's 105-104 win over the Kings.
It marks the 33-year-old's third absence in five matches after having played San Antonio's first two December games. Carroll has now missed 12 of the Spurs' 23 contests, suggesting that while the forward may have a role in the team, it won't be an integral one in the grand scheme of things.
Carroll managed two points (1-2 FG), three assists, two rebounds and a block in a 115-104 loss to Philadelphia on Friday.
Though this stat line may not produce much optimism for the 33-year-old, he did play in his third straight contest in a season where he's missed more games (nine) than played (seven). Regardless, his season averages of 2.4 points and 2.3 rebounds may be demonstrative of decline and dispensable even for deeper leagues.
Carroll is yet to see the floor in either of the Spurs' first two games.
The reason for the pair of DNP-CDs is unclear, but for now, at least, the veteran appears to be on the outside of the regular rotation. The Spurs have gone with DeMar DeRozan as the primary small forward, with Rudy Gay and Trey Lyles soaking up most of the minutes at the other forward spot.
Carroll (rest) will be available to play in Tuesday's preseason game against the Heat, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports.
Carroll was held out of Saturday's exhibition against Orlando for rest purposes, but the Spurs have announced that Trey Lyles will be the only player rested Tuesday evening.
Carroll will sit out Saturday's preseason game against the Magic in order to rest, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
The offseason signee won't make his Spurs debut until at least Tuesday. Carroll, who averaged 11.1 points and 5.2 rebounds in 25.4 minutes per game last season, figures to play in a rotational role for the Spurs in 2019-20.
Carroll's original two-year, $13 million contract with the Spurs has been reworked into a three-year, $21 million deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The new contract allows the Spurs to keep the midlevel exception, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN.com. Carroll figures to fight for forward minutes between Rudy Gay, DeMar DeRozan, Marco Belinelli, LaMarcus Aldridge and Davis Bertans.
Carroll and the Spurs agreed to terms Sunday on a two-year, $13 million contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The veteran had a bounce-back 2017-18 season with the Nets but appeared to regress last season, as he shot less than 40 percent from the floor, including 34.2 percent from three-point range -- his lowest mark since 2012-13. Still, the Spurs will bring him in to add depth on the wing after also agreeing to a deal to keep Rudy Gay.
Carroll will come off the bench Saturday against the 76ers, Michael Scotto of The Athletic reports.
The Nets are down 2-1 in the series, and coach Kenny Atkinson will opt to give Caris LeVert the nod at small forward. Carroll has scored in double-digits just once this series.
Carroll (wrist) is no longer listed on the injury report for Saturday's playoff game against Philadelphia.
Carroll was held out of the regular-season finale, but he'll be ready to roll for the first round of the postseason. He's averaging 10.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists over his previous five matchups.
Carroll will not play Wednesday against the Heat due to a sprained right wrist, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.
The Nets already clinched a playoff berth, so there's no reason to push Carroll to play through what's likely a relatively minor injury. Brooklyn may also be without Joe Harris, who's considered questionable, so coach Kenny Atkinson may have to dip a little deeper into his bench than usual.
