Carroll knocked out of Raptors' Game 5 win over Heat

  • Carroll knocked out of Raptors' Game 5 win over Heat

Toronto Raptors forward DeMarre Carroll left the third quarter of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Miami Heat after going down under the basket and suffering a left wrist contusion. He was ruled out shortly after.

X-rays were negative, according to the team.

While that is certainly good news for the Raptors, any extended loss of Carroll would be a colossal blow to their rotation. With their All-Star backcourt of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan mostly underperforming, Carroll has played well in the Miami series, averaging 11.2 points and 4.6 rebounds in five games with a 44.4 percent stroke from outside. While his defense has been hit and miss, it's been integral for Toronto in the postseason.
