Milwaukee Bucks Return to Practice, Plan to Resume Playoffs

The strike may have ended, but the work has not.

And so the show goes on. The Milwaukee Bucks, after having led the strike with their peers in the NBA, WNBA, MLS, and MLB, are back to basketball, even though it’s not their top priority.

It was announced yesterday that the players opted to resume play and continue with the NBA Playoffs. With the schedule in flux, the earliest the Bucks will play is probably Saturday, but details have not been released as of yet.

Given the team’s role in literally shutting American sports down for a day, it’s understandable that they would want to be able to work without having to worry about public appearances, headlines, or tweeted quotes. It’s easy to forget, this team is also contending for a championship, and that takes consistent effort.

As more details get released on the NBA’s updated schedule, we’ll provide updates accordingly. Game 5 against the Orlando Magic will happen sooner or later!

UPDATE: It looks like it’s coming sooner.
