It’s a lot later than we were led to believe, but it now looks like the Toronto Raptors DeMarre Carroll will be back in about two weeks from now.

Carroll had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in the first week of January with expected return in 6-8 weeks. He had missed nine games between December 7-22 with a right knee contusion.
While Carroll has been seen walking around the Air Canada Centre and the team’s practice facility and working out, it’s assumed the team is being cautious with their $60 million man who they acquired to help take them by the first round of the playoffs this season.
Toronto has exceeded expectations without Carroll’s help this year and is on a franchise record setting 56 win pace.
Toronto currently has a 13-5 record against teams in the East holding down a playoff spot and to put those Western Conference blowhards in their place, the Raptors are 9-3 against playoff teams in the West. 64 games into a season, your record is no longer a fluke.
