For the third time this season, an Indiana Pacers game has been postponed.

The Pacers-Rockets game scheduled for Saturday was postponed because severe weather conditions in Houston prompted a government shutdown of Toyota Center.

The Pacers’ Jan. 16 game at Phoenix was postponed because contact tracing left the Suns with too few players. COVID-19 issues among San Antonio players forced the postponement of the Feb. 22 Pacers-Spurs game. All three games will be rescheduled.

Saturday’s postponement is the second straight at home for the Rockets. Friday’s game against Dallas was called off  Thursday. The team said the decision was made after discussions with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and the NBA.
