DeMarre Carroll out for Raptors after knee surgery
Forward has averaged 11.7 points, 4.8 rebounds this season
DeMarre Carroll, who has been in and out of the Toronto Raptors lineup this season, is sidelined again, perhaps for some time.
The forward had arthroscopic surgery Wednesday morning on his right knee in New York.
Toronto's best two-way player sat out Monday's 122-100 loss at Cleveland with a swollen knee after playing the previous five games on the heels of missing nine contests with a right knee contusion.
The first-year Raptor has averaged 11.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 31.9 minutes in 23 games after averaging 12.6 points per game with Atlanta last season.
Toronto, which has dropped two straight and sits fourth in the NBA's Eastern Conference with a 21-15 record, visits the 10-24 Nets in Brooklyn on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
