HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610)- The NBA announced on Thursday that Friday's game between the Rockets and Mavericks scheduled to be played at Toyota Center has been postponed due to "government shutdown of Toyota Center because of severe weather conditions in Houston."
The Rockets returned to Houston after Wednesday night's loss in Philadelphia, but head coach Stephen Silas said the status of this weekend's games at Toyota Center remained up in the air.
“There’s a lot that kinda goes into it as far as hotel rooms for the teams that are coming in, as far as power and water as far as Houstonians going through this," Silas said. "It’s a big deal. We need to be conscious of them."
The NBA did not address the status of Saturday's game against the Indiana Pacers and likely won't until sometime Friday.
The league said Friday's game will be made up a at later date. It is the second time this season the Rockets have had a game postponed. Their game on December 23 against the Oklahoma City Thunder could not be played because the Rockets did not have the required eight available players.
