If you checked out for the weekend and didn't keep up on the Toronto Raptors, we have some bad news. We'll give you a second to prepare yourself ... which actually seems unnecessary, because you've seen the headline already.

Okay, here goes. DeMarre Carroll missed Sunday's loss against the Miami Heat with what the team called a "sore right heel":

On Saturday, however, Carroll told the Toronto Sun's Mike Ganter that he's dealing with plantar fasciitis:

"People don't really know," Carroll said, "but I'm just trying to give what I can to the team. I feel like me going out there and doing what I can to help this team and if that's me at 70% then I'll give them 70%. It might already be to the point where I have to start listening to my body."

"I got to worry about 82, so I got to be smarter, but me just being who I am and being a competitor I just want to go out there and give my all to my teammates and give my all to the coaching staff."

Carroll was a big part of the Atlanta Hawks' run to the Eastern Conference finals last year, but he suffered a sprained left knee that limited him over the final three games of the series. He joined the Raptors as a free agent this offseason and has averaged 12.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game for Toronto in 35.7 minutes per game.
