When will the 2018 preseason kick off for the San Antonio Spurs this fall?

The San Antonio Spurs will return to the court this fall for the 2018-19 season. Before that, it’s training camp and the preseason; two opportunities for players to showcase their talents for the upcoming campaign and the coaching staff to evaluate the roster.

The NBA’s regular-season start date has yet to be announced, but fans know when the Spurs will arrive at the AT&T Center for preseason games: Sunday, Sep. 30 vs. the Miami Heat. It’s the start of a five game schedule that concludes in mid-October.

How does the rest of the preseason look? Let’s take a look:

More from Spurs News

  • Sunday, Sep. 30 vs. Miami Heat at 4:00 p.m. CT: As noted, the Spurs start against the Heat. It’s a matchup against a team that has not changed much, aside from Dwyane Wade‘s unannounced decision to return to retire from the NBA.
  • Friday, Oct. 5 vs. Detroit Pistons at 7:30 p.m. CT: It’s a similar situation in Detroit, with no cap space to change the roster. Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond remain, however.
  • Sunday, Oct. 7 vs. Houston Rockets at 3:00 p.m. CT: Carmelo Anthony has yet to sign with the Rockets, but when he does, this should be one of the first times he takes the court with James Harden and Chris Paul.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 10 @ Atlanta Hawks at 6:30 p.m. CT: The Hawks are poised to be one of the league’s youngest teams, with Kevin Huerter, Omari Spellman and Trae Young joining the team via the draft.
  • Friday, Oct. 12 @ Orlando Magic at 6:00 p.m. CT: Orlando still has young talent despite the mediocrity. San Antonio could receive a look at Mohamed Bamba in the preseason finale.
