Denver Nuggets Announce 2018 Preseason Schedule

DENVER, Aug. X, 2018 – The Denver Nuggets will play a five-game preseason schedule that kicks off with consecutive games against the L.A. Lakers on September 30th and October 2nd in San Diego and Los Angeles respectively.

The Nuggets will head home to Pepsi Center for their third preseason game of the year as they take on the Perth Wildcats of the Australian National Basketball League (NBL) on October 5th.
