The Pacers return to New Orleans on Wednesday night to play the Pelicans after the initial matchup at the Smoothie King Center on Feb. 7 was postponed due to a leaky roof. Fortunately, the weather forecast is dry in New Orleans so the game should go on.
The Pacers will be without Domas Sabonis but will be in better shape than they were on Feb. 7 when both Darren Collison and Victor Oladipo were expected to miss the game. The make-up date has set the Pacers up to play every other day throughout March but the Pels are squeezing the game in between two home games, forcing them to play three nights in a row and four nights in five days.
New Orleans remains without DeMarcus Cousins and have added Emeka Okafor who has been starting alongside Anthony Davis. Former Pacer Solomon Hill made his season debut on Sunday, started last night against Dallas but is expected to sit out against the Pacers thanks to the busy schedule this week.
