Veteran guard George Hill stayed in the locker room during the national anthem in Game 5 between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Orlando Magic.

Game 5 of the series is the first contest since the players in the “bubble” protested against police brutality by going on a two-day strike.

Hill was a leading figure for the Bucks becoming the first NBA squad to sit out their playoff game on Wednesday and started a movement across the sports world that resulted in stoppages in almost every other professional sports league.

With players deciding to resume play, it is likely that they will continue to use their voices to speak out on injustice in every possible way.
