Toronto Raptors game postponed, but NBA will resume playoffs: report

The Toronto Raptors’ playoff game against the Boston Celtics on Thursday night has been postponed in the aftermath of a weekend police shooting in Wisconsin, but the NBA says its post-season will resume, sources tell The Associated Press.

The sources say the NBA postponed all three of its playoff games at Walt Disney World Resort on Thursday in Florida.

The NBA also postponed three games Wednesday following the Milwaukee Bucks’ decision not to take the court for their game against the Orlando Magic.

NBA players are protesting social injustice in the aftermath of the weekend shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, by police in Kenosha, Wis., about 65 kilometres south of Milwaukee.

All NBA games are being played without fans and players are separated from the general public at Walt Disney World during the COVID-19 pandemic.

More to come.
