Notebook leftover, post-G3, ATL-CLE. Hawks' DeMarre Carroll, asked what he'd say to Cavs' Matthew Dellavedova re: reckless play if could...

Jason Walker

Also, DeMarre continued to give it all last night. Not any less impressive than Game Three.

Royce Young

Hawks' DeMarre Carroll says Kyle Korver is out 4-6 months cbsprt.co/1EsoLW0 http://t.co/cAnIzezExY

Kurt Helin

DeMarre Carroll says Kyle Korver needs ankle surgery, may be out 4-6 months dlvr.it/9yGlQd

Sean Highkin

WONDERFUL RT @AnaheimAmigos: DeMarre Carroll just said of Kyle Korver, "he's got to have surgery, out 4 to 6 months".

Royce Young

DeMarre Carroll on the Horford/Dellavedova incident: http://t.co/DT1aU6DC9N

Chris Herring

My goodness... DeMarre tried screening LeBron. LBJ basically was like, "Move, bruh."

Sherman Hamilton

Poor #hawks! Horford ejected now. Demarre banged up. Korver out. Can Dominique Wilkins still play? Up one at the half. #rtz #nbaplayoffs

Kevin Arnovitz

Meanwhile, DeMarre. This guy. Hurts me to watch him run. Out there w/ the rudest defensive assignment in the world. Working. Making shots.

Michael Lee

DeMarre Carroll can still block LeBron James's shot on one good leg...Impressive #hawks

Jason Walker

Great straight-up defense from DeMarre there.

Sean Highkin

DeMarre’s moving a lot better than he was in Game 2.

Sam Amico

DeMarre Carroll says Hawks remain confident vs. Cavs: "We’re only down 0-2. The media is going to make it bigger than it is."

Sam Amico

Hawks F DeMarre Carroll will play with sprained knee in Game 3 vs Cavs. Kent Bazemore to start for injured G/F Kyle Korver (ankle).

Mike Ganter

On the plus side, DeMarre Carroll no worse after Game 2 and is expected to start again in Game 3.

Chris Vivlamore

CMB: DeMarre Carroll came out of Game 2 well, expected to play Game 3.

Jaryd Wilson

"We have to get back to playing unselfish basketball." - @DeMarre Carroll More reaction from last night: on.nba.com/1F7ULAs

Kevin Arnovitz

Hawks are less optimistic about Kyle Korver's condition than they were DeMarre Carroll's the morning after Game 1. Diagnosis soon.

Lang Greene

DeMarre Carroll entered ECF averaging 17.1 points, has scored 11 total points in 69 minutes during the series having to guard LeBron James

Jason Walker

After an upsetting night, we can be united w/ @BTRowland in celebrating the epic effort from @DeMarre Carroll peachtreehoops.com/2015/5/23/8647…

Royce Young

Q: DeMarre, how was the leg? A: A leg. It was a leg. Um, I got out there, so. We all know I wasn't 100 percent. We all know that.

Ethan J. Skolnick

DeMarre Carroll says he consulted with his agent, the doctor & the coaches before playing. "I wouldn't turn this chance down."

Ethan J. Skolnick

How was DeMarre Carroll's leg? "It was a leg."

Ethan J. Skolnick

DeMarre Carroll: "We played a lot of isolation ball. We didn't play our team ball.... We came out flat."

Joe Vardon

DeMarre on LeBron: He's a great player, he knew I was hurt and he came at me with full force. I would've done the same thing.

Chris Fedor

I can't believe DeMarre Carroll played as many minutes as he did tonight. Impressive. Kudos to him.

Jaryd Wilson

"I didn't care if I had one leg, I wasn't going to let this (opportunity) pass me by." - @DeMarre Carroll on playing through the injury

Joe Vardon

DeMarre Carroll at the podium, grimaces as he sits down. Tough dude

Jaryd Wilson

Coach Bud says he thinks Al will be okay. He'll know more on Kyle and DeMarre tomorrow but says DeMarre is "in a pretty good place."

Ethan J. Skolnick

DeMarre Carroll, who led the Hawks with 34 minutes, limps into their locker room

Ethan J. Skolnick

DeMarre Carroll, who wasn't supposed to play, is 2nd on the Hawks in minutes w/ 30 & w/ Korver out, will soon be first.

Kevin Pelton

Does it make sense to play DeMarre Carroll when LeBron James is on the bench? Such a big drop off from Carroll defending LeBron to Bazemore.

Ethan J. Skolnick

By the end of this game, DeMarre Carroll will be the Hawks' healthiest starter

Vince Cellini

Still amazed that @DeMarre Carroll back out there, 19 first half minutes. Inspiring. Limited, but inspiring @Jaryd Wilson

Kris Willis

19 first half minutes for DeMarre Carroll. Didn’t see that coming

Jeff Zillgitt

DeMarre Carroll's mouthguard on floor. Joey Crawford picks it up. Carroll sticks in his sock.

Ethan J. Skolnick

DeMarre Carroll doesn't have much, but is really competing.

Ethan J. Skolnick

DeMarre Carroll in for Bazemore. Carroll was icing knee. Short rest, so it doesn't stiffen

Ethan J. Skolnick

DeMarre Carroll wasn't especially effective in first stint, so I wonder if he gets a second in half -- or if Budenholzer looks at Mike Scott

Chris Vivlamore

DeMarre Carroll has ice wrap on knee on the bench after he came out.

Jeff Zillgitt

Kent Bazemore getting ready to check in for DeMarre Carroll.

Lang Whitaker

So far Bud has subbed out Millsap and Horford but DeMarre is still in the game.

Jeff Zillgitt

This also saves LeBron James' energy on one end when he's guarding DeMarre Carroll right now.

Sean Cunningham

DeMarre Carroll looks like he won't last very long tonight. Ouch.

Jeff Zillgitt

Huge ovation from Hawks home crowd for DeMarre Carroll when PA announcer introduced him -- "He's back" -- as a starter.

Chris Vivlamore

Huge ovation for DeMarre Carroll.

Joe Vardon

Hawks forward DeMarre Carroll to start in Game 2 against LeBron James bit.ly/1FEIHua

Adi Joseph

Lil B healed DeMarre. Remarkable talent.

Chris Fedor

As I said earlier today during a radio interview, anything DeMarre Carroll can give Atlanta will give it a lift emotionally.

Rick Noland

shocked DeMarre Carroll is playing. how well, TBA
