Karl Malone Power forward

The Mailman picked up the league's Player of the Month honor for February and then played even better in the opening week of March in leading the Jazz on a perfect 5-0 trip east. Malone has averaged 34.7 points in his past three games while playing both power forward and some center, in the absence of Greg Ostertag.

John Stockton Point guard

Opposing point guards - like their teams in general - were getting off to fast starts against the Jazz on the recently completed trip. The first four starting point guards the Jazz faced on last week's trip - Matt Maloney, Chauncey Billups, Kenny Anderson and Sam Cassell - averaged 9.3 first-quarter points. Stockton, however, had the last laugh in each case. After falling behind in all four games, the Jazz rallied to win.

Jeff Hornacek Shooting guard

Hornacek's sore left knee gave him additional problems on the trip but didn't knock him out of any game action. He scored 23 points in Friday's win at New Jersey, then suffered through one of his worst shooting games of the year - 1-for-8 from the field - Saturday at Milwaukee. He still managed eight points against the Bucks, mostly on technical foul free throws.

Adam Keefe Small foward

Keefe was his consistent self during the recently completed trip, averaging 11.6 points and netting at least eight in every game. He also went hard to the offensive boards, as usual, averaging a team-best three rebounds on the offensive end per game. In Utah's smaller lineups, he's seeing time at power forward - and even played a couple minutes at center against the Nets.

Greg Ostertag Center

Utah's only 7-footer is still on the injured list but has started to practice on the court. He did not make the recently completed trip with the team so he could stay home to rehab his injured left leg. He will be re-evaluated on Friday and if he checks out OK, could be back in the lineup by week's end.

Bryon Russell Small foward

Russell is now doing the things that made him so valuable to the team last season - playing strong defense, rebounding, hustling and nailing 3-pointers in crucial situations. He's still coming off the bench but averaging nearly 30 minutes per game. He averaged 14 points on the trip and scored nine or more in each game.

Howard Eisley Point guard

Eisley made the biggest shot of the game against the Nets on Friday night. New Jersey had cut the gap to three points with under a minute to play when Utah's back-up point guard nailed a long-range two-pointer with the shot clock about to expire to put the Jazz back up by five. The fact that Eisley is playing at times in the final minutes of close games - alongside Stockton - shows the confidence Jazz coach Jerry Sloan has in him.

Antoine Carr Center/forward

The Big Dawg is 36 years old and threatened to retire earlier this season. Now he's saying he wants to play three or four more years. He has shown recently that he still has some value remaining - and some jumping ability left. He blocked at least one shot in every game on the recent trip.

Shandon Anderson Guard/forward

The Toronto Raptors had no answer for the second-year man out of Georgia Tuesday, as he scored a career-high 26 points on 11-of-16 from the field. He continues to shoot the ball well, primarily from the inside after he posts up smaller guards.

Greg Foster Center/forward

Foster continues to start at center in place of Ostertag. Even though he's starting, he's still playing less than 20 minutes per game on average as the Jazz have gone with smaller lineups - with Malone at center - with some regularity. He scored eight points against the Cetltics and followed it up with nine against the Nets.

Jacque Vaughn Point guard

The team's No.1 draft pick started growing a beard on the road trip. He's still not getting much in the way of playing time. He played four minutes of garbage time on the trip, scoring two points when he made both of his free throws against the Bucks on Saturday night. Jazz coaches continue to say they think Vaughn is a player. It's just that they can't divide the point guard playing time up three ways, they say.

Chris Morris Forward/guard

Just when you thought Morris might actually start contributing to the team on a regular basis, he blew it again. The Jazz had four games in five nights, but on the one night they had off, Morris broke the team's curfew. He watched the next game in street clothes and then only got garbage time in the trip's finale.
