The game is on but with no fans in the stands thanks to the weather.
The Pacers and Bulls are in the Fieldhouse so they might as well play their game scheduled for 7 p.m. ET on Monday night. However, the Pacers announced they will play the game without the fans who bought tickets due to the winter weather travel advisory in Indy.
The snow started falling again in Indy around 2 p.m. and is accumulating quickly which has the travel restrictions in place.
OFFICIAL: We will play tonight’s game vs. Chicago without fans in consideration of the travel advisory issued by the City of Indianapolis Department of Public Works restricting road travel beginning at 5 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 15.

The Bulls and Pacers both play their next game on the road on Wednesday, but leaving a day early as scheduled may be a challenge if the forecast of an inch an hour continues until the wee hours of the morning.
But with the nasty, not only snowy but bitter cold weather outside, fans can pull up a comfy seat at home and watch the game via TV or illegal stream (thanks Fox Sports Indiana).
