There will be no NBA playoff basketball Wednesday.
Shortly after the Milwaukee Bucks boycotted Game 5 of their first-round series vs. the Orlando Magic, the NBA and National Basketball Players Association jointly made an announcement postponing the night's remaining games.
The NBA and the NBPA today announced that in light of the Milwaukee Bucks' decision to not take the floor today for Game 5 against the Orlando Magic, today's three games – MIL-ORL, HOU-OKC and LAL-POR have been postponed. Game 5 of each series will be rescheduled.— NBA (@NBA) August 26, 2020
There are three matchups scheduled for Thursday -- Game 6 between the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz, Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals between the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors and Game 6 between the LA Clippers and Dallas Mavericks.
It is unclear if they, too, will be postponed, as the situation remains extremely fluid
Every NBA player is invited to join the meeting in The Bubble at 8 PM to discuss how they'll proceed from today's boycotts, sources tell @ZachLowe_NBA and me.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) August 26, 2020
The Bucks refused to take the court in protest of Sunday's police shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
