The Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers reportedly voted to boycott the rest of the NBA season, but, following a meeting, players have decided to resume the playoffs, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
The three playoff games scheduled for Thursday will be postponed but the league could resume on Friday.
Blake was shot seven times in the back as he opened the door of his car in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The shooting has sparked a wave of protests in recent days, some of which have turned violent.
Lakers' LeBron James led the calls to boycott, some hours after he tweeted: "F*** THIS MAN!!!! WE DEMAND CHANGE. SICK OF IT"
