What is NBA preseason?
The NBA preseason is a series of exhibition games that take place before the start of the regular NBA season. It serves as a warm-up period for NBA teams to prepare for the upcoming season. While these games don’t count toward a team’s regular-season record, they serve an important role in the overall NBA calendar. The NBA preseason typically occurs in early to mid-October, just before the regular season begins, which usually starts in late October.
The primary purpose of the preseason is to allow teams to evaluate their rosters, test new strategies, experiment with lineups, and assess the performance of rookies and new acquisitions. It also gives coaches an opportunity to make final roster decisions. Preseason games may see star players and key contributors receive limited playing time. Coaches often use these games to give less-experienced players more minutes and opportunities. Preseason games may see star players and key contributors receive limited playing time.

How many games are in the NBA preseason?
The number of preseason games can vary from team to team and season to season.
