James Harden, Chris Paul, Rockets, Thunder

The Milwaukee Bucks announced earlier they were boycotting Game 5 of their first-round series against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday. It was a response to the Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and it might set off a chain of events over the next few days.

Shams Charania of The Athletic reported the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder have also decided to boycott Game 5 of their own series, which was scheduled to tip immediately after Bucks-Magic.
