Carter finished with 17 points (6-11 FG, 5-10 3Pt) and four rebounds in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 100-96 win over the Knicks.
Carter can still stretch the floor offensively with his shot, though he did commit four turnovers and four fouls. He can still put together a decent stat line from time to time, but Carter is best reserved for use in the deepest formats heading into his final year.
Carter agreed Monday with the Hawks on a one-year contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The 42-year-old Carter previously announced the 2019-20 season will be his last, so he'll be tasked with serving as mostly a mentor for a young Atlanta squad as he returns to the Hawks for a second consecutive campaign. The upcoming season will be Carter's NBA-record 22nd, surpassing the likes of Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Garnett, Robert Parish and Kevin Willis. The eight-time All-Star will likely retain a small role in the Atlanta rotation after averaging 7.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.6 triples and 1.1 assists in 17.5 minutes per game over his 76 appearances in 2018-19.
Carter plans to retire following the 2019-20 season, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
A free agent this summer, Carter, who appeared on ESPN's The Jump on Wednesday, noted that he'll give the Hawks the first chance of bringing him back for his age 42 season. Last season with Atlanta, he saw 17.5 minutes per night, averaging 7.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists. He'll likely play a similar role with whatever team he lands on next season. Carter has made two All-NBA teams, has played the fifth-most games in NBA history and is 20th in scoring all-time.
Carter (rest) is off the injury report for Friday's matchup against the Magic, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.
Carter got the second half of a back-to-back set off Wednesday against the 76ers, but he'll be in action Friday. Since March 1, he's averaging 9.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 22.8 minutes.
Carter is out for rest Wednesday against the 76ers, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Carter started and played 28 minutes Tuesday, so coach Lloyd Pierce will opt to keep the veteran on the sidelines on the second half of a back-to-back set. With Taurean Prince (foot) and Alex Len (foot) both questionable, we could see a lot of Justin Anderson, DeAndre' Bembry and Kent Bazemore.
Carter will start Tuesday's game against the Spurs, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
With the Hawks down a significant number of frontcourt players, Carter will make his ninth start of the season. Across his other starts, he's averaging 7.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 20.6 minutes.
Carter produced eight points (3-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt), three assists and two steals over 27 minutes in the Hawks' loss to the Magic on Sunday.
Carter had a typical stat line in Sunday's performance, though he still played a good allotment of minutes with 27. Carter is only averaging 16.8 minutes per game this season, and his production has been minimal overall with some productive nights mixed in. No longer able to penetrate effectively or get to his spot the way he used to, Carter has relied heavily on the three-ball this season. He's drained at least two three-pointers in all but two of his 24 double-digit scoring efforts this season.
Carter poured in 21 points (7-14 FG, 7-11 3Pt) and collected four rebounds along with an assist and a steal across 26 minutes Monday against Miami.
Carter was impressive from beyond the arc, knocking down a season-best seven treys in a 114-113 loss on the road. After being held to a mere three points in Sunday's matchup with Chicago, he managed to bounce back in a big way. Despite an outstanding performance, Carter is averaging just 6.8 points and 2.5 rebounds through 59 games this season.
Carter had three points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three assists, and one steal in 12 minutes during Sunday's 123-118 win over the Bulls.
Carter suffered a bruised knee in Friday's loss to the Bulls but was able to give it a go in Sunday's rematch. The 42-year-old veteran was coming off two straight double-digit scoring performances, but he's not a viable option outside of the deepest formats.
Carter (knee) is available to play in Sunday's game against the Bulls.
Carter suffered a bruised knee in a Friday's marathon game against Chicago, however he will play Sunday. He's averaging 16.3 minutes per game this season, and should continue to see somewhere around that average.
Carter is probable for Sunday's game against the Bulls due to a bruised right knee, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
The veteran has emerged from Friday's quadruple-overtime game with a bruised knee. That said, it's likely he ends up taking the court for Sunday's rematch.
Carter dropped 17 points (6-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), while adding four assists, two rebounds and one block across 27 minutes in Wednesday's 131-123 win over the Timberwolves.
Carter collected a season-high assist total on the night, while hitting 60 percent of his three-point attempts. While Carter won't have these performances every night, he has shown he still has some energy left in the tank to produce on a limited basis.
Carter totaled 16 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and an assist over 16 minutes in the Hawks' loss to the Pistons on Friday.
The 21-year vet showed why he still takes the court, producing 16 points in just 16 minutes and draining a trio of threes. He was seen jawing with Blake Griffin shortly before Griffin was ejected in the third quarter, so it's possible Carter had some extra motivation in Friday's game, though nights like this are outliers rather than the norm for Carter these days.
Carter recorded nine points (3-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-4 FT), two rebounds and one block across 17 minutes in Thursday's 119-101 loss to the Raptors.
Carter likes to take advantage of his limited run by attacking the basket and launching shots when open, but he just does not possess a big enough role in the Hawks' offense to do consistent damage that will be noteworthy.
Carter totaled 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-6 3Pt), two assists and two steals across 16 minutes in the Hawks' win over the Wizards on Monday.
After averaging 8.6 minutes per game in his last five contests, Carter played 16 productive minutes in Monday's win. His playing time increased with John Collins (facial laceration) out for the entire second half, and the 42-year old showed why he's still on an NBA roster. He was feeling it from deep, sinking four three-balls and shooting an impressive 75.0 percent from the floor. Carter's value is tied to Collins' health and if the former doesn't miss any time, Carter should be avoided in most every format.
Carter played seven minutes and contributed zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist Monday in the Hawks' 122-103 loss to the Magic.
Carter has played fewer than 10 minutes in the past two games, as the loosened restrictions on Taurean Prince's playing time has seemed to hurt him the most. With the rebuilding Hawks expected to prioritize the development of their younger players throughout the second half of the season, it's rather unlikely that Carter will recapture the consistent 20-plus-minute role he held back in October.
Carter produced 21 points (7-11 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, and one steal in 23 minutes during Saturday's 111-108 victory over the Cavaliers.
Carter turned back the hands of time Saturday, dropping a season-high 21 points in the victory over the Cavaliers. This was only the second time Carter has scored in double-digits in his last seven games and despite this nostalgic performance, he can be safely left on the waivers in most formats.
Carter tallied 18 points (7-14 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes Sunday in the Hawks' 98-95 win over the Pistons.
More minutes were up for grabs in the frontcourt with John Collins (ankle) sidelined, with Carter representing one of the main beneficiaries. The veteran led all Hawks bench players in minutes and established a new season-high scoring all, but he'll see his prominence in the rotation take a hit once Collins and Taurean Prince (ankle) are available to play again.
Carter contributed 13 points (4-7 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 21 minutes Wednesday against the Wizards.
After failing to crack the rotation in three of the past five games, Carter played 21 minutes and generated solid, if modest, contributions Wednesday. With Taurean Prince (ankle) set to miss at least three weeks, Carter may see a mild bump in his minute load, although at this point in his career he can't be counted on for consistent production and shouldn't be considered a viable fantasy asset in most formats.
Carter collected 14 points (5-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and one assist across 21 minutes in Wednesday's 124-108 loss to the Raptors.
Carter continues to get limited minutes and opportunity off the Hawks' bench due to his age, but Wednesday night marked something more than just another game for Carter. He was able to slam home a dunk with no time left in the fourth quarter to reach the 25,000-point milestone for his career. He is just the 22nd player in NBA history to accomplish the feat.
