The NBA All-Star game scheduled for Feb. 12-14 in Indianapolis has been postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic and rescheduled for 2024, the league said on Wednesday.

“While we are disappointed that the NBA All-Star Game will not take place in Indianapolis in 2021, we are looking forward to the Pacers and the city hosting the game and surrounding events in 2024,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement.

The NBA said plans for a revised NBA All-Star 2021 will be announced later.

Cleveland is set to host the 2022 All-Star Game followed by Salt Lake City in 2023.

The 2020-21 NBA regular season is scheduled to begin on Dec. 22.
