As Clifton Brown of The Indianapolis Star points out, safety of the players is of the utmost concern in a situation like this. It goes without saying you can’t take the risk of serious injury because of a fall on a wet surface.

They definitely don’t want a situation similar to what happened with the Lakers a few years ago.
