The Athletic is reporting that the two Los Angeles-based teams voted in favor of a boycott for the rest of the season. However, ESPN is saying the vote taken Wednesday night was more of a poll, as opposed to a final decision of the remainder of the playoff schedule.

Wojnarowski is also reporting that Thursday’s three playoff games — including Celtics-Raptors — are “unlikely” to be played, and that discussions on continuing season will extend into Thursday.

Earlier in the day, all three NBA playoff games were postponed after the Bucks announced a decision not to play as part of a protest involving the police killing of Jacob Blake.

Blake, 29, was shot seven times by police in Kenosha, Wis., prompting outrage across the nation and powerful reflection among players in the NBA bubble. Kenosha is less than an hour away from Milwaukee, but the Bucks players are in Florida as part of the NBA’s restart in a “bubble” format.

In a show of solidarity, several games across professional sports were also postponed, including WNBA, MLS and MLB contests.
