Pelicans game vs. Indiana delayed due to leak in roof

The New Orleans Pelicans game against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night at the Smoothie King Center has been Delayed due to a leak in the roof.

Rain water began leaking from the roof around 6:30 p.m., according to SMG general manager Alan Freeman, and workers at the Smoothie King Center are attempting to install a catch basin in order to contain the issue.

The water was dripping around the free throw line in front of the away team's bench.

This didn't reveal itself until players left the court from early shootaround," Freeman said.

"It's not really possible for us to repair the roof tonight.

What we're trying to do right now is create a catch basin that can contain the leak."

The game is expected to begin 10-15 minutes after repairs have been completed.
