Pistons' Game vs. Wizards Postponed; Team Remains Stuck in Dallas Due to WeatherFebruary 1, 2023
The Detroit Pistons' home game against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday has been postponed as the team remains stuck in Dallas because of severe weather.
The Athletic's James L. Edwards III initially reported the Pistons would be stuck in Dallas until at least Wednesday morning, meaning they would only return home a few hours before the Washington game is scheduled to tip off, at the earliest.
The Pistons were originally slated to leave Dallas following their 111-105 loss to the Mavs on Monday. Further "logistical" and weather issues caused another delay Tuesday.
The Pistons and Wizards are both slated to be off Thursday night, so the league could delay the game by 24 hours.
That said, both teams play a back-to-back on Friday and Saturday, so it's possible the game is postponed to avoid a back-to-back-to-back situation.
Washington is in ninth place in the Eastern Conference at 24-26, giving the matchup potential playoff implications. The Wizards will likely be eager to schedule a makeup against the Pistons, who have the East's worst record at 13-39.
