NBA Postpones All 3 Playoff Games After Milwaukee Bucks Boycott Game 5

LAKE BUENA VISTA (CBS Sports) -- The NBA has announced that all three playoff games set to be played Wednesday evening will be postponed and rescheduled.

The decision comes after the Milwaukee Bucks players did not take the court for Game 5 of their first-round series against the Orlando Magic, which was supposed to tip off at 4 p.m. ET.
