The Milwaukee Bucks have boycotted their own playoff basketball game in solidarity with Black Lives Matter protestors.

The teams are scheduled to start their series on Thursday and are planning to meet again on Wednesday to discuss the potential boycott.
Chris Haynes from Yahoo! Sports' on Wednesday tweeted that the executive committee of the NBA Players Association “is in active discussions with players who are seeking guidance on the logistics of potentially boycotting games.”
Haynes added that on Tuesday players held an assembly for those experiencing emotional trauma after the recent police shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisc.
Some people who reached out said that “they’re not in the right frame of mind to play basketball” following a display of "excessive force" by police.
