The Hawks home game against the Pelicans on Wednesday will be played as scheduled despite recent inclement weather, according to a team spokesperson.

The game at Philips Arena is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m.

The team has no plans to adjust the start time or door openings. The team spokesperson encouraged fans to use MARTA.

Atlanta received 2.3 inches of snow overnight that closed schools, government offices and some businesses in the city and surrounding counties. Temperatures will continue to be below freezing through Wednesday and into Thursday.
