Thirteen NBA games were scheduled for Wednesday, but only 12 will go on as planned.

The Pacers announced Wednesday afternoon that the league had postponed their game against the Bulls because of blizzard conditions in Indianapolis. The game was scheduled to tip at Bankers Life Fieldhouse at 7 p.m. local time. The game will be rescheduled but no makeup date has been set yet.

RTV6.com reported earlier Wednesday that Indiana's Marion County was "under a travel watch" because of the storm and that a Pacers spokesperson said the team was "in contact with NBA officials" about the situation. The station also reported that more than a foot of snow had fallen in parts of Indiana and that "fierce wind gusts" were topping 40 miles per hour.

JournalReview.com reported that the Indiana National Guard had been activated Wednesday to assist those affected by the storm.

The Pacers are 16-12 on the season, a half-game ahead of the 15-12 Bulls at the top of the Central Division.

Earlier this season, Hurricane Sandy forced the postponement of a game between the Knicks and Nets that was scheduled for Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Nov. 1. That game was made up on Nov. 26. Image via Weather.com.
