After NBA players collectively decided to not participate in yesterday’s playoff games as a protest against racial injustice, it appeared that the season as a whole could be coming to an end. However, it appears that headway was made in the conversations earlier this morning between players, executives, coaches and owners as to how the league should move forward under the current circumstances. The NBA playoffs now appear set to resume with an aimed restart for Friday, at the earliest, with the sacrifices that the players have made up to this point in the Orlando bubble reportedly being the most pivotal factor in the restart.

Also, according to Shams Charania of the Athletic, players will seek to find different ways to communicate messages protesting racial injustice, even as they decide to move forward with the postseason.
