"I'll have a lot of say, let's put it that way. If it ain't broke, I'm ready to play," Carroll told reporters on Thursday.

Carroll's injury appeared more serious during Game 5, as he was forced to leave Wednesday's contest after crashing to the floor in the third quarter. He's since undergone multiple tests on his left wrist to determine the severity of the injury, with all of them coming back negative.

"My whole wrist went numb so I'm like 'here we go again,'" Carroll said.

Carroll's laid-back approach toward the injury should come as a positive sign for Raptors fans. He joked that if all else fails, DeMar DeRozan's unique Game 5 treatment is always an option.

"I told (director of sports science and assistant coach Alex McKechnie), let's wrap a shoelace around my wrist and see what happens," Carroll added.
