Denver Nuggets Preseason 2011 Schedule Announced

The 2011 Denver Nuggets preseason is already out, but will any of the games be played? The NBA lockout is preventing them at the moment.

Despite a lockout in place in the NBA, the league is putting a good face on things and announcing 2011 preseason schedules. The Denver Nuggets announced their 2011 preseason schedule on Thursday. Their seven-game schedule includes just two homes games at the Pepsi Center.

The home games come against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Oct. 16 and then on Oct. 23 against the Phoenix Suns. The preseason schedule starts on Oct. 10 with the first of back-to-back road games against the Houston Rockets. The Oct. 21 game with the Oklahoma City Thunder is the only single-game series during the preseason.

At this point during the NBA lockout, it is unlikely that any of these games will be played. Neither side is ready to negotiate faithfully.

Here is the complete schedule:

Date Opponent Arena Time (MT)
Oct. 10 at Houston Rockets State Farm Arena (Hidalgo, TX) TBD
Oct. 11 at Houston Rockets Toyota Center (Houston, TX) 6:00 p.m.
Oct. 16 Minnesota Timberwolves Pepsi Center (Denver) 7 p.m.
Oct. 20 at Phoenix Suns US Airways Center (Phoenix, AZ 6 p.m.
Oct. 21 at Oklahoma City Thunder BOK Center (Tulsa, OK) 6 p.m.
Oct. 23 Phoenix Suns Pepsi Center (Denver) 7:00 p.m.
Oct. 25 at Minnesota Timberwolves Target Center (Minneapolis, MN) 8:00 p.m.
