SEATTLE -- All-Star guard Ray Allen of the Seattle SuperSonics will miss Tuesday night's game in Sacramento because of the flu.

He missed his first game of the season in Seattle on Monday night, when the Northwest Division-leading Sonics lost 103-84 to San Antonio. Without Allen, the Sonics struggled offensively, scoring only 34 points in the first half. It was the first game Allen has missed this season.

The Sonics said they are unsure about Allen's status for the game against Charlotte on Saturday night in Seattle.
