No word on who would start in place of Carroll should he be ruled out on Saturday.
Carroll suffered a sprained thumb in Thursday's win over in Cleveland. X-Rays came back negative and he is currently listed as day-to-day. The Hawks are thin at small forward with Cartier Martin missing over a week due to an ankle injury. Martin was available Thursday night in Cleveland but did not play.
Carroll has played in all 29 games this season for the Hawks and is averaging 9.3 points and 5.6 rebounds. He has typically drawn the defensive assignment against opposing team's top wing scorers.
