INDIANAPOLIS — The 2021 NBA All-Star game in Indianapolis has been postponed until 2024, the Indiana Pacers and NBA announced Wednesday.

The 2024 NBA All-Star Game is scheduled for Feb. 18, 2024, at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

"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 press release. "I want to thank Herb Simon, Steve Simon, Rick Fuson and the entire Pacers organization as well as the NBA All-Star 2021 Host Committee and the community of Indianapolis for working with us to reschedule our All-Star activities."

“We are excited about the opportunity to bring Indiana the very best All-Star experience in 2024,” Pacers owner Herb Simon said in a press release. "The efforts of so many Hoosiers to prepare for NBA All-Star 2021 put us ahead of the game for the hard work to come, and we are so grateful to the NBA for once again recognizing Indianapolis as a city that delivers world-class events.”

More details on plans for a revised 2021 NBA All-Star Game are expected to be announced later.

Cleveland will host the 2022 All-Star game and Salt Lake City will host the 2023 All-Star game.
