Carter scored just two points (1-10 FG, 0-6 3Pt) with four rebounds and three assists in 19 minutes in the win over Detroit on Saturday.

Carter was coming off an 11-point effort in which he hit three 3-pointers. His success did not last beyond one game and the 16-year veteran will likely continue to see limited minutes off the Memphis bench.

Carter (ankle) is finally healing up from his offseason ankle surgery, Chris Faulkner reports.

Carter is coming off of his best game of the season on Thursday versus the Kings, during which he contributed 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 17 minutes of action. Carter's alley-oop inbound pass to Courtney Lee sealed the win for the Grizzlies at the buzzer, and they now own the best record in the NBA at 8-1. Carter is off to a slow start this season, averaging 6.8 points (41.7 FG, 38.5 3Pt, 66.7 FT), 2.1 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 0.5 steals and 0.1 blocks in 16 minutes per game, but as he continues to get back to full strength he could earn a few more minutes. Still, Courtney Lee and Tony Allen are firmly entrenched as the starters on the wing, and Carter is likely only worth a look in deeper leagues unless he starts to see a significant uptick in playing time.

Carter is averaging 6.2 points, 1.8 rebounds, 0.5 assists, and 0.3 steals on 14.3 minutes per game this season.

Carter has a limited role off the bench behind Tony Allen and Courtney Lee this season in Memphis. The veteran can provide three-point numbers in deeper leagues, but otherwise he's not getting enough time on the court to be a reasonable option in standard leagues.

Carter played in 16 minutes in the Grizzlies' win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday despite his ankle injury.

Despite logging the second most minutes off the bench for the Grizzlies on Wednesday, Carter went 1-for-7 from the floor for just four points. Tony Allen also got the nod over Carter in crunch time in a close game. Still, it looks like Carter will be playing reasonable minutes off the bench.

Carter (ankle) likely won't be 100 percent to start the 2014-15 season, 92.9 ESPN in Memphis reports.

Carter had a bone spur procedure in his right ankle back in May, was limited in practice and training camp, and has played sparingly so far in the preseason. Coach Dave Joerger expressed optimism regarding Carter's progress, and though Carter turns 38 in January, he has adjusted his game well as he has aged. It seems he'll be eased into his eventual minutes load as he regains his health early on, but Carter's ability to spread the floor and overall offensive versatility should help him earn a plentiful role off the bench during 2014-15.

Carter was limited in practice Wednesday as he rehabs from a bone spur procedure in his right ankle, which was performed in May, Grizzlies' announcer Pete Pranica reports.

This is the first we've heard of a procedure on Carter's ankle in the offseason, but Pranica said that his limitations in practice are just a normal part of the healing process, and it doesn't sound like his status for the start of the season is in doubt.

Vince Carter has agreed to a three-year, $12 million deal with the Grizzlies according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

It's fair to wonder when Carter's legs will give out, but in his limited role it's very possible that he continues to put up serviceable numbers as a seasoned backup. It looks like Mike Miller is on his way out of Memphis and perhaps to Cleveland to go play with LeBron.

The Mavericks are still confident they can re-sign unrestricted free agent Vince Carter.

Even with the massive three-year, $45 million offer sheet the Mavs just extended to Chandler Parsons, they still think they can bring back Carter. His minutes would obviously take a hit with Parsons playing a ton of minutes at small forward, so VC's fantasy value would go south in his age-37 season.

Talks between the Mavericks and Vince Carter are "trending well," according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas.

There is mutual interest and it seems like only a matter of time before Carter re-signs with the Mavs, but he's also drawn interest from the Heat, Raptors, Thunder and Trail Blazers. He had an excellent season in 2013-14 and was one of the best bench players in the NBA, but at age 37 it's unlikely that he'll get a long contract.

Vince Carter is set to become an unrestricted free agent come July 1, and there are a number of playoff teams expected to make an offer, according to sources.

The Heat, Thunder, Raptors, and Trail Blazers are expected to make their pitches to Carter in addition to the Mavericks. Carter averaged 11.9 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 24.4 minutes per game last season, and showed that he still has the ability to make an impact on a team.
