The Houston Rockets will have another game postponed as a result of a severe winter storm that has left millions without power in Texas. The NBA announced Friday that Saturday's Rockets game against the Indiana Pacers has been postponed as a result of the storm.

It's the second straight postponement for the Rockets, who were set to play the Dallas Mavericks on Friday. The NBA postponed that contest Thursday due to the extreme weather.

The storm hit the state Sunday. The Rockets were in the midst of a road trip at the time, and were set to return home to play at the Toyota Center on Friday. The Rockets are set to finish their three-game home stand with a game against the Chicago Bulls on Monday. It's unclear whether that game will take place following Friday and Saturday's postponements.

Following Monday's game against the Bulls, the Rockets will go back on the road to play the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday.

The NBA has not announced when the Rockets will make up the postponed games.

Mavericks also had game postponed due to storm

Both the Rockets and Mavericks have had games postponed due to the storms. The Mavericks were set to play the Atlanta Hawks at the American Airlines Center on Wednesday, but the NBA postponed that contest Tuesday. The Mavericks' Friday game against the Rockets that was already postponed was set to take place in Houston.

With that game postponed, the Mavericks are set to return to Dallas for a two-game home stand Monday and Tuesday. Those games could also be postponed depending on the state of the storms.
