The most notorious of NBA referees is no longer going to be calling Game 6 of the Milwaukee Bucks-Boston Celtics series on Friday night.

Scott Foster was originally scheduled to work Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals series. But the NBA shared on Friday that Foster is out due to an illness.
