The NBA made a stand this afternoon when the Milwaukee Bucks decided not to play a scheduled playoff game against the Magic. The team refused to play in protest over the senseless shooting of Jacob Blake this past week in Kenosha Wisconsin by police officers. The Dodgers had not had any conversations when Caleb Ferguson met with media this afternoon, but that changed quickly.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts talked about the protests going on around sports today, and how his team factors into that discussion. Players from both the Giants and Dodgers had meetings with their teams within the last few hours to discuss whether or not they would be playing today.
