Atlanta Hawks starting small forward DeMarre Carroll will be a “game-time decision” tonight in Indiana, the team announced this morning. Backup center Pero Antic will remain out due to a stress fracture in his right ankle.
Carroll missed the Hawks’ last game before the All-Star break on Wednesday with a left hamstring strain, and unfortunately seems as if he hasn’t fully covered yet.
Atlanta already has a hard enough matchup tonight going up against the first-place Pacers, going into battle without Carroll would be devastating.
If he can’t go, it’s possible the Hawks could slide Kyle Korver up to SF and start Lou Williams in the backcourt with Jeff Teague. Otherwise, Korver could stay at SG with Mike Scott or Cartier Martin getting the nod at the wing.
Here’s the latest word on Carroll:
Coach Bud says DeMarre will warm up, then a decision will be made on his status.
