NBA players present at Wednesday’s meeting in the bubble expressed frustration with the Milwaukee Bucks for the manner with which they handled their walkout ahead of a scheduled playoff game against the Orlando Magic, according to Yahoo’s Chris Haynes. While the decision itself was later followed by the Magic and the four other teams scheduled to play on Wednesday—the Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers—neither the Magic nor the NBA Players Association were notified ahead of time that such an act was being considered. 

Players in the meeting argued that it put those teams in a difficult position. Not following suit would have suggested dissent within the union’s ranks, but the union could not properly prepare without prior knowledge of what the Bucks ultimately decided to do. 

Bucks guard George Hill said that he sparked the conversation to consider it during pregame, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania. Bucks forward Kyle Korver later apologized to his fellow players on behalf of his team for their handling of the situation, according to The Athletic’s Sam Amick. 

Both the union and NBA ownership are now determining what to do about the remainder of the season. The league’s Board of Governors will meet Thursday morning to discuss next steps, and the players, who already met Wednesday evening, will do so again at the same time. While their ultimate solution remains unknowable, the atmosphere of Wednesday’s meeting was described to multiple reporters as emotional. Given the frustration over Milwaukee’s more sudden decision, whatever is decided Thursday or beyond will likely be measured and come out of something resembling a consensus from the union.

BALL - Enzo Fernandez's decisive clock - a condition that the Eagles do not accept (Benfica)

Clarifications are expected from River Plate today or tomorrow at the latest regarding Enzo Fernandez, the 21-year-old midfielder wanted by Benfica.

The Argentine club should analyze the situation, taking into account the pressure exerted by the media and fans, as soon as it became public that the player met with Benfica manager Rui Pedro Bras in the center of Buenos Aires.

The importance of the meeting with Colo-Colo – for Libertadores, played last night (River won 4-0) – justified caution and concentration, as a good result would immediately mean reaching the 1/8 finals of the tournament from River Plate, but the game is over and there is a free game ahead Earth.

Benfica and River Plate are still well connected, Rui Pedro Braz, sporting director of the Orlovs, was expected at the Monumental de Nunez and the relevance remains. For the people who run Benfica football, it makes no sense to hire a midfield boss in exchange for 20 million euros and then not be able to use him in the campaign to reach the Champions League group stage, the first and very important steps of Roger Schmidt in the technical team.

In the event that River Plate and the player try to extend their stay in Argentina until December, as reported by some of the country’s media, the Eagles’ answer will be no.

As a manager, we are lucky to have six or seven players in our team that clubs are interested in, including Mousa. I am happy because Musa, when we arrived at Boavista, we realized that he was very exhausted, he was a player who ran away from his position a lot. He pressed everywhere, went to the goalkeeper, to the sides, but the striker lives on goals and insight, and he needs oxygen to reach the moment of the final blow with this insight. We felt that he was tired when the ball reached him and we did the work with him, making him understand that the pressure in other areas must be done by others,” he began with an underline, further detailing what he sees in the future reinforcement Roger Schmidt in Luz “Musa is a very strong player, plays very well with his back to the goal, holds the ball, holds the ball and attacks from deep. He was a very important player and he still has room to grow. He has a very strong mentality, he is a child , who likes to work hard, often goes to the gym, and sometimes we even have to slow him down,” the chess coach emphasized.
