The Houston Rockets-Dallas Mavericks game on Feb. 19 has been postponed due to the government shutdown because of severe weather conditions in Houston, according to Shams Charania.

The game will be rescheduled at a later date.

It is the NBA’s 32nd postponement of the season and the second due to weather.

The game between the Mavericks and Detroit Pistons on Feb. 17 was also postponed due to the severe winter weather in Texas.

The Mavericks aren’t scheduled to play until Feb. 22, when they’ll host the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Rockets’ next game is scheduled for Feb. 20 against the Indiana Pacers, but that game could also be jeopardy.
