The NBA and its players have agreed the playoffs will resume tomorrow.

NBA players want change that makes their communities safer.

They want people to vote hopefully in their home arenas.

And they want to keep playing basketball.

Teams returned to the court Friday after the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association agreed on commitments that made players comfortable continuing.

The two sides say they are going to immediately establish a social justice coalition, made up of players, coaches and owners, that will push for meaningful police and criminal justice reform.

Play stopped Wednesday as players held emotional news conferences about the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin and acts of racial injustice.

NHL teams won't play again until tomorrow.
