For a second night running, there will be no games played in the NBA Playoffs.
It follows Wednesday night's postponement of three games after the Milwaukee Bucks chose to sit out game-5 of their first round tie with Orlando.
They were acting in protest at the police shooting of Jacob Blake, which has left the Kenosha native paralysed in a Wisconsin hospital.
The shooting has sparked renewed protests against racial injustice in the United States, particularly in Kenosha.

It had been hoped that play could resume on Thursday night after a vote to end the season early was defeated.
It's believed the Los Angeles franchises - the Lakers and the Clippers - both were in favour of calling a halt to the season.
NBA Executive Vice-President Mike Bass:
NBA playoff games for today will not be played as scheduled.
We are hopeful to resume games either Friday or Saturday.
There is a video conference call meeting scheduled later this afternoon between a group of NBA players and team governors representing the 13 teams in Orlando, along with representatives from the National Basketball Players Association and the league office and NBA Labor Relations Committee Chairman Michael Jordan, to discuss next steps.
