DeMarre Carroll hit just 1-of-6 shots for three points, four rebounds and a steal in 14 minutes on Saturday.
The Scoop:It looks like he's the starting small forward and had a surprising season last year. He's worth a look late in drafts, but it remains to be seen if he'll be needed to score as much with Al Horford eventually back for the Hawks. Our guess is he won't be as valuable this season as we was last year.
The Scoop:He was previously listed as out after spraining his ankle on Saturday. Carroll should be ready to go for the season opener, but his role on offense figures to take a big hit with Al Horford (pectoral) back in the lineup.
The Scoop:Thabo Sefolosha will draw the start in Carroll's place, but the injury is not serious, and Carroll will likely be 100 percent by the start of the regular season. Carroll was nice last year, as he averaged a respectable 11.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.3 three-pointers, and 1.5 steals, but his value is going to take a big hit with the return of Al Horford (pectoral). Carroll is a late-round flier at best in standard leagues.
The Scoop:He twisted his ankle during a practice on Saturday so the Hawks are going to give him a rest on Monday. Carroll was a solid value pick for many owners in deep leagues last year but may have a hard time repeating those stats with Sefolosha and Bazemore now in the fold. Still, he may not be a bad pick towards the end of your drafts.
