On Thursday, the Milwaukee Bucks reportedly boycotted Game 5 of their first-round series with the Orlando Magic.
Thursday's playoff games have now officially been postponed.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Milwaukee's players made the decision in wake of Jacob Blake, a Black man, being hospitalized after he was shot at seven times by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Players around the league were quick to praise the Bucks for taking a stand. Many of them also used their platform to demand change.
