Boycott alters schedule for professional teams

Wednesday's boycott sparked a number of changes for the state's three professional sports teams this week.

 

The Milwaukee Bucks got the ball rolling Wednesday evening when it refused to take the court for its game five matchup against the Orlando Magic in its best-of-five playoff series. Even after the Lakers and Clippers voted to end the season, the rest of the NBA players chose to continue the playoffs. The Bucks will play game five Friday against the Orlando Magic at 3 p.m. 

 

The Green Bay Packers were scheduled to practice Thursday, but coach Matt LeFleur instead canceled the practice. In interviews with reporters, he felt it was not right to have the practice following the state's two other teams electing to not play the night before. He added the players did not ask for the day off and that he came to the conclusion after meeting with the team's leadership council.  Several other NFL also did not practice Thursday.

 

The Brewers, along with other teams that boycotted Wednesday, played doubleheaders on Thursday. They dropped both of their games to the Cincinnati Reds and will stick around Milwaukee for the weekend to face the Pittsburgh Pirates.
