TORONTO — Raptors forward DeMarre Carroll and Heat forward Luol Deng both exited Wednesday night with left wrist injuries in the third quarter of Toronto’s 99-91 Game 5 win.
Carroll suffered his injury after being called for an offensive foul on a drive to the rim. After going down, he clutched his left wrist and was eventually escorted off the court and into the locker room by the team trainer.

It was unclear how Deng suffered his injury. X-rays were inconclusive, and he will have an MRI on Thursday to determine the extent of the injury.
“Right now we’re just being smart,” Deng said. “I have to know what it is. As long as it’s nothing serious, I will be out there Friday [for Game 6].”
