Players with the National Basketball Association have chosen to resume the playoffs.

ESPN reporter, Adrian Wojnarowski, was the first to report that the players met Thursday morning to discuss the state of the postseason after the Milwaukee Bucks decided not to take the floor against the Orlando Magic in Game 5 of their first-round series. Wojnarowski also reported that Thursday's three playoff games will be postponed.

Apparently, it was during this meeting that the players chose to resume the playoffs. The season is anticipated to resume by the weekend, if not Friday.

The Bucks decision not to take the floor was made as athletes in the US took a stand against racial injustice by refusing to play in games across the country following the shooting of Jacob Blake

Blake was shot in the back by police on Sunday in Kenosha, Wisconsin while trying to get into his vehicle. His shooting is the latest in a series of police brutality incidents that have left African Americans either dead or severely injured.
