McCartney injured a knee during training this week and is unlikely to feature at the Hawthorns. The setback is a fresh blow to Allardyce, who has also lost Mohamed Diame (hamstring) after he pulled up in last weekend's defeat to Liverpool.
Yossi Benayoun, Andy Carroll and Jack Collison (all knee), Ricardo Vaz Te (shoulder) and Alou Diarra (thigh) are all missing for the Hammers.
West Brom boss Steve Clarke admits he has six injury doubts ahead of the clash.
Goalkeeper Ben Foster (groin), midfielder Claudio Yacob (hamstring) and left-back Liam Ridgewell (ankle) are all battling to be fit.
Clarke would not name his other concerns as Albion bid to end a run of three successive defeats.
