The NBA has postponed all of Wednesday’s playoff games following the Milwaukee Bucks’ boycotting their Game 5 match-up against the Orlando Magic in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake.

The Houston Rockets and Oklahoma Thunder have also decided to sit out their Game 5 and the Lakers were in talks over whether or not they should follow in similar fashion, with a Game 5 also scheduled against the Portland Trail Blazers tonight.

Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the NBA has decided to postpone all games, while Shams Charania of The Athletic reports players have asked for a meeting in the Orlando bubble to address the situation.

Woj adds the league was completely blindsided by this and fully expected players to take the floor on Wednesday.
