NBAAll- Star Game in Indanapoli­s reschedule­d


INDIANAPOL­IS— Indianapol­is will host the NBA All-Star weekend in 2024, the league said Wednesday, formally rescheduli­ng the plans for that city to be the site of the league’s midseason showcase this season.

Cleveland will play host in 2022 and Salt Lake City will do so in

2023, both of those sites and years previously announced. The next open spot on the league’s All-Star calendar was 2024, which now belongs to Indianapol­is.

The league said “public health conditions prevented the Pacers, the NBA All-Star Host Committee and the NBA from appropriat­ely planning and executing fan-focused AllStar activities in Indianapol­is that were envisioned for this February.”

The new dates for Indianapol­is’

All-Star weekend: Feb. 16-18, 2024.

The news had been expected for months. The league released hotel blocks for what would have been the 2021 All-Star weekend back in August and is in the process of finalizing a schedule for this season — which begins Dec. 22.

The league said it is planning to revise this season’s All-Star agenda, with those plans still to be announced.
