2024-25 NBA Preseason Schedule; Matchups, Times

2024-25 NBA Preseason Schedule

The 2024-25 NBA preseason schedule is slowly coming out. The first preseason game takes place on October 4th, 2024. The teams are expected to play 5-6 games ahead of the 2024-25 NBA regular season. As matchups and times are available, we are including them for you below. We can expect the NBA to publish a roll-up of all the teams schedules when available. The 2023-24 preseason saw the teams play a total of five games. 

When does the 2024-25 NBA Preseason schedule Take Place? 

The 2024-25 NBA preseason schedule starts on October 4th, 2024. Opening day for the 2024-25 NBA regular season takes place on October 22nd, 2024. Since we’re on an Olympic basketball cycle, we could see some variance in the release dates for the final schedules to come out. Odds are, we’ll have all of the preseason games confirmed before the Olympics get started in late July. If the NBA follows suit with past years, we can expect to see the 2024-25 NBA regular season schedule release between August 14th and August 16th, 2024.
