With the Denver Nuggets season inching closer by the minute, the team officially announced five preseason games beginning at the end of September.

The Nuggets will open their preliminary schedule on September 30th in a matchup versus the Los Angeles Lakers. That game will be played at the Valley View Casino in San Diego, California before the Nuggets face the Lakers two days later at the Staples Center.

Following the Nuggets first two preseason games, the team will head back home to Pepsi Center to face the Perth Wildcats of the New Zealand Basketball league. The game will be part in the ‘NBA vs. NBL’ series, which will be the Nuggets first time participating in the event.

Denver will then round out the preseason with two more road matchups, one against the Los Angeles Clippers on October 9th, and one against the Chicago Bulls on October 12th.

All games will be made available on the Nuggets flagship station Altitude 950 AM, with the Lakers game on October 2nd and the home game against Perth being the only two games televised on Altitude TV.
