I've done this several times with no ill effects. I have noticed that it doesn't take off as quickly, but 4 or 5 hours doesn't make much of a difference.

If it's not done, it hasn't grown as much yeast as it would have. Whether that matters or not, depends on how many cells you needed and how many you have.
