Last week, an ice storm left the Detroit Pistons stranded in Dallas, forcing the NBA to postpone their Feb. 1 home game against the Washington Wizards.
On Monday, we learned how the league will jam this game back into the schedule.
The Pistons-Wizards will meet on March 7 at Little Caesars Arena. To make room for that game, the Pistons' contest at home against the Portland Trail Blazers has been moved from March 7 to March 6.

Also, the Milwaukee Bucks announced that its game against the Wizards scheduled for March 6 has been pushed back to March 5.
While the Pistons (14-40 entering Monday) are well out of the playoff race, the Wizards entered Monday in the 10th spot, the final position for the season-end play-in tournament, at 24-28, a half-game ahead of the Indiana Pacers.
