LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - The Milwaukee Bucks have boycotted Game 5 of their NBA first-round playoff series on Wednesday against the Orlando Magic, according to multiple media reports.

The Toronto Raptors and the Boston Celtics also have discussed boycotting games in their playoff series, which is scheduled to start on Thursday.
