Spurs Sports & Entertainment have expressed tickets and parking passes purchased for the earlier date will still be valid when the Heat visit the 2-1-0.
These two teams were initially supposed to meet on December 29, but an outbreak of coronavirus cases left the Heat without the league-mandated eight available players to begin the game.
This cross-conference contest now becomes the first night of a back-to-back for San Antonio and their penultimate game before getting five days off for the annual All-Star Break.
Miami originally had a road game against the Toronto Raptors on February 3. But the league office has shifted that east coast showdown to February 1 to accommodate other changes they have made to the schedule.
The NBA has also moved the start time for San Antonio’s contest with the Brooklyn Nets on January 9 from 7:30 PM CT to 11 AM CT.
