If you didn't catch Lonzo Ball during Summer League, don't worry. The Nuggets take on Ball and the Lakers twice in the preseason, which opens Sep. 30 when Denver visits Golden State.
Denver then plays the Lakers (twice), and the Spurs, before returning to Pepsi Center for their lone preseason home game against Russell Westbrook, Paul George and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Oct. 10. Three of Denver's five preseason games will be televised on Altitude TV.
Since the league moved up the start date for the regular season to Oct. 17, the number of preseason matchups has been significantly reduced. Last season, the Nuggets played eight preseason games.
