The Milwaukee Bucks were slated to tip off against the Orlando Magic shortly, and they have not yet taken the court. Multiple reports indicate they are seriously discussing boycotting the game:
Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted, “The Milwaukee Bucks still haven’t come out to the court for Game 6 with the Orlando Magic and there’s been some discussion within the Bucks about a boycott, sources tell Malika Andrews and me.” He added that NBA officials are outside their locker room.
Malika Andrews of ESPN has reported that the Magic, who were warming up on the floor, have left the court.
To eat a forfeit would be a fascinating gesture from the Bucks, who play about an hour away from Kenosha where Jacob Blake was shot by police on Sunday. The Bucks have a 3-1 lead on the Magic in the series.
The Celtics and Raptors have also reportedly been discussing a boycott of their Game 1 on Thursday.
UPDATE: Wojnarowski reports that the Bucks have decided to boycott today’s game. Given that the Magic left the court, it’s unclear whether it will be a forfeit.
This is a developing story.
