Wednesday's game between the Pelicans and Pacers has been postponed due to a leak in the Smoothie King Center roof.

The game was supposed to start at 8:30 p.m. EST, and was delayed for a little more than an hour before they eventually decided.

Arena staff had been working to clear the court of water and coaches Alvin Gentry and Nate McMillan had come out to look at the situation with officials, but players never took the court.

With so much time to kill and no word on if the game would still be played, the Pelicans and Pacers Twitter accounts tried to find ways to stay active during the delay.

There is no word on when the game will be made up.

When these teams played earlier in the season in Indiana, New Orleans picked up a 117-112 win.
