After a nearly two-hour delay due to a leaky roof amid rain in New Orleans, the NBA announced the Pelicans and Pacers wouldn’t play tonight.

NBA release:

The National Basketball Association game scheduled for tonight between the New Orleans Pelicans and Indiana Pacers has been postponed due to a leak in the roof at Smoothie King Center.

The date for the rescheduled game will be announced at a later time.

Here are dates that both teams aren’t scheduled to play, don’t already have events booked at New Orleans’ home arena and aren’t during the All-Star break:

  • Feb. 8
  • Feb. 13
  • Feb. 15
  • Feb. 22
  • Feb. 27
  • March 1
  • March 8
  • March 12
  • March 14
  • March 16
  • March 21
  • March 26
  • March 28
  • March 31
  • April 2

Is it too short of notice for both teams to remain in New Orleans and just play tomorrow? That might be the simplest solution, but at least there are plenty of plausible options.
