All-Star hadn't missed a game before Monday

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.
