The Atlanta Hawks will be without a pair of key contributors against the Utah Jazz. Both DeMarre Carroll and Mike Scott have been declared out by the team following this morning's shootaround.

Carroll was listed as doubtful on Tuesday with a groin strain. Thabo Sefolosha is expected to move into the starting lineup. Scott was listed initially listed as questionable with a lower back contusion but it appears that the club will play it on the safe side.

With Sefolosha starting there will be minutes to be had by either Kent Bazemore or maybe Shelvin Mack in the Hawks rotation. Mack has saw his playing time dwindle as Dennis Schroder has stepped in to the back up point guard position. Bazemore started out in the rotation but hasn't played in either of the last two games.

Rookie Adreian Payne was not on the team's injury report and could be available tonight if needed. Payne has been inactive all season and the last five due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot.
