Carter began the regular season at less than 100 percent following offseason ankle surgery and suffered a torn tendon in late January on his way to career lows in minutes, shot attempts per game, field goal percentage, rebounds per game and assists per game.

Carter recorded two points (1-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 14 minutes during the Grizzlies' 100-86 win versus the Blazers on Sunday.

Courtney Lee, Jeff Green and Tony Allen (hamstring) are all ahead of Carter on the depth chart in terms of wing options. It will likely take injuries or foul trouble for Carter to see a heavier load of minutes going forward.

Carter (foot) will be active for Friday's game against the Lakers, Chris Vernon of ESPN reports.

Carter missed the entire month of February with this foot injury but may end up making his long-awaited comeback Friday. Although, just because he's active doesn't necessarily mean that he'll take the court. Even so, expect him to see limited minutes off the bench so he can get back into the swing of things upon his eventual return to action.

Carter (foot) is inactive for Wednesday's game, Sports 56 WHBQ's Rob Fischer reports.

Carter (foot) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

A foot tendon injury kept Carter out of Tuesday's game, and it's possible he could be headed for another absence. Even if he is held out, he appears to be close to returning since originally suffering the injury back in late-January.

Carter (foot) has been deemed questionable for Tuesday's showdown versus the Jazz, Grizzlies' sideline reporter Rob Fischer reports.

After a month of rehabbing Carter appears to be closing in on his return. Still, since he is behind Courtney Lee, Jeff Green and Tony Allen on the depth chart he is unlikely to be much of a factor in fantasy.

Carter (foot) was re-evaluated and will continue his rehab regimen, with further updates being provided after the All-Star break, Grizzlies' sideline reporter Rob Fischer reports.

It was already a given that the Grizzlies wouldn't rush Carter back, but this is at least confirmation that his tendon is starting to heal. Still, even when he's able to return, Carter isn't able to earn enough minutes behind Courtney Lee, Jeff Green and Tony Allen to make an impact in fantasy.
