How to watch Warriors vs. Wizards preseason games in Japan


The Golden State Warriors are tipping off their preseason overseas.

The Dubs and the Washington Wizards will open the NBA preseason with two games in Tokyo, Japan. It will be Golden State’s first time outside of North American since 2017, when it played the Minnesota Timberwolves in a pair of preseason games in China.

For Draymond Green, it represents a trip back to the city where he won his second Olympic gold medal with Team USA. The Americans won men’s basketball gold for the fourth straight Olympics by beating France in August 2021.

For the Warriors as a whole, the two exhibitions mark their first time back on an NBA court since they defeated the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
