Hamburg coach Kurt Jara is waiting to see whether key players Sergej Barbarez and Mehdi Mahdavikia will be available for their Uefa Cup second-leg clash with Dniepr Dnjepropetrovsk.
Both players returned from international duty unfit and are doubts for the match on Wednesday.
The Bundesliga side take a narrow 2-1 lead to the Ukraine.
Bosnian striker Barbarez is complaining of a back injury, while Iranian winger Mahdavikia is plagued by jet-lag after a long journey back from Tehran.
Jara is already without defender Milan Fukal and midfielders Bastian Reinhard and Alex Meier.
