Raptors News: DeMarre Carroll Ruled Out Indefinitely With Right Knee Injury

DeMarre Carroll sustained an injury in the right knee, and on Monday it was confirmed that he is ruled out indefinitely with a contusion in the injured portion.

DeMarre Carroll sustained an injury in the right knee, and on Monday it was confirmed that he is ruled out indefinitely with a contusion in the injured portion.

After signing a contract with Toronto Raptors this off-season, 29-year-old Carroll played in 18 games in this edition of the NBA. In those games the small forward averaged 12.2 points, 5.1 rebounds in 34.2 minutes per game. With injuries sidelining Carroll and center Lucas Nogueira, the Raptors roster has thinned considerably. Carroll featured for only 26 minutes in Air Canada Center against Golden State Warriors and scored nine points before leaving with a bad knee on Saturday.

Raptors faced Los Angeles Lakers on Monday night without Carroll and Nogueira. The team announced that Carroll has been ruled out with a knee contusion. Nogueira was out with left ankle sprain.

The center scored 14 points against the Warriors, which is his career-best, but couldn’t prevent his team’s defeat against the reigning champions. Without the duo, the Raptors secured a 102-93 win over the Lakers. Carroll also missed three games in November due to ankle pain.
