ATLANTA — DeMarre Carroll's agent says an MRI on Carroll's left knee showed no structural damage, and Carroll is hoping to play for the Hawks by Friday night's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Mark Bartelstein told The Associated Press on Thursday that Carroll has only a knee sprain and "maybe a little" bone bruise.
Carroll celebrated the news on his Twitter feed.
Bartelstein says Carroll will receive treatment for the soreness Thursday and Friday in hopes of playing against Cleveland in Game 2.
Carroll's knee appeared to buckle as he was driving to the basket with about 5 minutes left in the 97-89 loss to the Cavaliers. Carroll couldn't put pressure on the leg as he was helped off the floor.
