Mike Bibby is ailing.Josh Smith could be out for a couple of games because of a suspension.
And Hawks captain Joe Johnson hasn't played like his usual All-Star self on a consistent basis for more than a month.
Could things get any uglier for the Hawks, who face the prospect of returning home from their current five-game Western Conference road trip with only one win, and that over lowly Sacramento?
They'll find out in Wednesday's trip finale in Denver. Both Bibby and Smith could be in street clothes, a sobering prospect for a team limping its way around the league since the start of 2009. The Hawks were 21-10 through 2008 but are just 11-14 since then.
"Bibby tried to play, but his energy just wasn't there," coach Mike Woodson said of his point guard, who played 15 minutes and didn't score a point. "He tried to play, but he's come down with something because his energy just wasn't there. So we'll have to pamper him a little bit and be ready to go."
There may be no hope for Smith, who is likely to face a suspension from the league office for the flagrant foul (2) he put on Matt Harpring in the fourth quarter of the game against the Jazz.
The call itself was a bit questionable. But Smith's actions afterward -- he was ready to trade punches with Harpring -- are not up for debate.
"It is what it is," Woodson of Smith's situation. "There's not a whole lot we can do with it. We have to go back and send the tape to the league and see what they say, because they'll have the final decision on it."
JAZZ 108, HAWKS 89: The Hawks' Western Conference road swing is suddenly resembling an ugly western trip earlier in the season.
That last trip, which included three straight games in Texas in December, consisted of the Hawks fumbling and stumbling their way to embarrassing losses to Dallas, Houston and San Antonio in a five-day span.
Monday night's toothless effort in Utah was the Hawks' 15th straight loss in Utah and was their latest dip in performance.
They've dropped three of their last five and couldn't have looked more lethargic after the second quarter if they had tried.
Hawks coach Mike Woodson watched helplessly as his team was routed.
"The result of not matching this team's toughness and physicality is an embarrassment," he said. "This (Utah) team plays very hard, and they're physical. If you don't come to play they will run you off the floor."
That's exactly what the Jazz did to the Hawks on Monday night.
