The decision is said to have arrived at during a meeting on Thursday, August 27 but Thursday night’s three playoff games will not take place.
According to reports, the meeting took place inside the NBA bubble near Orlando. It was the second session to discuss whether to continue the 2020 post season after Wednesday’s three-game boycott.
Media reports say the playoffs may resume on either Friday or Saturday. The Dallas Mavericks and LA Clippers were due to play Game 6 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series as were the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz.
The Boston Celtics were set to face the Toronto Raptors in the opening game of their Eastern Conference semi-final series.
All three NBA playoff games scheduled for Wednesday, August 26 were postponed after the shooting of a black, Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Jacob Blake, 29, was shot several times in the back as he entered a car where his three children were seated.
