The San Antonio Spurs will take the court in October for the 2018-19 opener, but what day is it on?
After an unusual offseason, the San Antonio Spurs will move towards the 2018-19 season. It’s still far away, but given the silence of movement across the board, there’s an eye on what the next campaign will provide for all 30 NBA teams.
It all begins with Opening Night of the 2018-19 season. This will be different for some teams, as not everyone will play the first evening of the year, including the Spurs, as they were even left off the NBA Tip-Off week’s slate of games on national television.
That’s nothing to scoff at, though, as the Spurs will play locally and face the Minnesota Timberwolves on Opening Night at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX. That’s Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 8:30 p.m. ET, the second night of the season, after TNT hosts two marquee matchups to kick off the 2018-19 season.

Spurs vs. Timberwolves is a rematch of Opening Night from the 2017-18 season, where the Silver and Black won. This time around, without injury conversation and new players around, this will be a different look for them to enter the year, including the presences of DeMar DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl.
Afterward, San Antonio will dive into a season that should not have controversy, barring something unforeseen, due to Kawhi Leonard‘s departure in the same deal that brought in DeRozan and Poeltl. How will the Spurs perform without their would-be face of the franchise?
The 2018-19 season is on its way and should make for another interesting ride. With a crowded Western Conference, new players, and the same Golden State Warriors at the front of the pack, it will be a task for the Spurs to make noise. It all starts on Oct. 17, against another, potential playoff threat.
