Sonics guard misses Monday's practice

SEATTLE -- Guard Ray Allen's sprained right ankle forced him
to miss practice Monday, and the SuperSonics say his return will be
a game-time decision before Seattle plays at home Tuesday night
against Milwaukee.

Allen, averaging 23.9 points, was hurt in the first quarter
Sunday night in Los Angeles. He had six points, three assists and a
rebound, but left Seattle's 102-100 victory late in the first
period.

Danny Fortson, with a sprained left ankle, and center Jerome James, who has a bruised right quadriceps, didn't travel for the
Lakers game and also will be game-time decisions for the Milwaukee
matchup.

The Sonics already are without forward Vladimir Radmanovic, out
four to six weeks with a stress fracture in his right leg.
