The decision comes after a tumultuous week in Texas that has resulted in millions of power outages, lack of water and freezing temperatures.
The Rockets have been on the road since before the winter storm hit, but the team has proceeded with caution about their plans to return to Houston.
The Rockets are scheduled to play Saturday at home against the Pacers, but no decision has been made yet in regards to whether that game will be played. A decision is expected tomorrow, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

The Rockets now have at least one extra day to get home and return safely to Houston. It also eliminates the back-to-back games they would have played this weekend.
