Before we know it, the Warriors will be back on the court in game action. Wednesday was another reminder.
The Warriors on Wednesday announced their five-game preseason schedule, starting on Monday, Oct. 4, against the Portland Trail Blazers at Moda Center.
Golden State will face the Blazers and Los Angeles Lakers twice, with the Denver Nuggets squeezed in the middle. The Warriors' preseason slate consists of three home games and two on the road.
Expectations are high after the Warriors missed the playoffs for the second straight season. The Warriors added a handful of veteran contributors this offseason, as well as bringing in two lottery picks.
Klay Thompson's return will have to wait, but the preseason can't come soon enough for an eager Warriors fan base.
