DeMarre Carroll injury: Hawks forward game-time decision against Bucks

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Hawks originally announced that forward DeMarre Carroll wouldn't play on Saturday against the Bucks but he is now listed as a game-time decision by the team.

The Atlanta Hawks limp into Milwaukee on Saturday night but could get a key player back a little earlier than was originally thought. Forward DeMarre Carroll suffered a hamstring strain in Wednesday's win in Orlando. He sat out Friday's loss to the Spurs and was originally declared out for Saturday's contest at Milwaukee.

An injury update issued by the team on Saturday now declares Carroll as a game-time decision against the Bucks. The Hawks will be without Jeff Teague and Pero Antic in addition to John Jenkins and Al Horford. If Carroll was able to give them some minutes it would be a definite shot in the arm.

Carroll will likely test out his hamstring prior to the game to see how he feels. He originally told the AJC after the Orlando game that the injury wasn't serious. Tests revealed a strained hamstring and he sat out against the Spurs. Expect Atlanta to play it safe with Carroll but if he feels good to go Atlanta can use whatever minutes he can provide.
