Players kneel before an NBA basketball game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Toronto Raptors, Saturday, Aug. 1, 2020, in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

TORONTO -- The Toronto Raptors will start their best-of-seven NBA Eastern Conference semifinal against the Boston Celtics on Sunday after Game 1 was postponed Thursday in the aftermath of the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, in Kenosha, Wis., last weekend.

Teams returned to the practice court Friday after the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association agreed on commitments that made players comfortable continuing. The playoffs will resume Saturday.
