    INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis will host the NBA All-Star weekend in 2024, the league said on Wednesday (Thursday, Manila time), 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 All-Star activities in Indianapolis that were envisioned for this February."

    The new dates for Indianapolis' All-Star weekend: Feb. 16-18, 2024.

    "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.
