What time will the 2018-19 NBA schedule release for the San Antonio Spurs and the other 29 teams?
On Friday, Aug. 10, the 2018-19 NBA schedule will release for all 30 teams, including the San Antonio Spurs, who were left off Wednesday’s announcements of Opening Week games on national television, Christmas Day and Martin Luther King Jr. Day. So, there are still 82 matchups to discover for the Silver and Black.
What time can fans look out for the schedule release, however? According to Bleacher Report’s Howard Beck, it will be at 4:00 p.m. ET. Live coverage is available on NBA TV, as well.
NBA will release the full 2018-19 schedule Friday at 4pm ET. PLAN YOUR DAY ACCORDINGLY.

That means Spurs fans have to wait into the middle of Friday to learn the team’s Opening Night opponent, as well as other marquee games.
Kawhi Leonard’s return to San Antonio will be a date to circle on the calendar. When that happens remains to be seen, but it should receive its own night on the schedule and receive its fair share of attention. How will the AT&T Center react to his first game there as a Toronto Raptor?
DeMar DeRozan also has his Toronto return, whenever the Spurs make their only trip of the season to Canada. After a tension-filled split between DeRozan and the Raptors brass, it should make for an interesting game whenever it happens.
Outside of this, there are the future matchups against the Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets and LeBron James’ Los Angeles Lakers to look forward to. All will be top games on the schedule for the Silver and Black, which could make or break their postseason future down the line.
The schedule will release in less than 24 hours. Who are you most excited for the Spurs to face in the 2018-19 season? Which team should they play on Opening Night?
