Game 1 of the series between the Celtics and the Raptors has been put on hold as players have decided to follow other NBA teams and boycott the game in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake,  an African American man, in Wisconsin. A white officer shot Blake seven times in the back while his kids watched.  He survived, but he's paralyzed.

NBA and a few MLB games were postponed plat night because of the boycott.
