The NBA playoffs are underway. Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors have already secured their spot in the next round, Donte DiVincenzo and the Milwaukee Bucks are trying to do the same.

Milwaukee has a chance to close things out on Wednesday afternoon.

Donte DiVincenzo

The Bucks have a 3-1 series lead on the Orlando Magic. They boycotted their Game 5. With more teams expected to follow suit, the NBA postponed all three games that were supposed to take place on Wednesday. It’s not clear when they will be played, but it won’t count as a loss. The playoff schedule is unclear, as the NBA players and executives are expected to meet on Wednesday night to determine what will happen moving forward.
