NBA preseason joins, regular season starts Tuesday – Kansas City Star

NBA preseason joins, regular season starts Tuesday – Kansas City Star

From LeBron James' arrival in Los Angeles to Jimmy Butler's desire to leave Minnesota, it has been an eventful NBA preseason.

It was a tough one for the Timberwolves, who spent most of it on the Butler drama and finished it off with Giannis Antetokounmpo, who had 32 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in just 25 minutes of Milwaukee's 143-121 romp.

And it was tough for the Spurs, who lost three guards from injuries, including starting guard Dejounte Murray for the season with a torn ACL.

Russell Westbrook (right knee) and Dirk Nowitzki (left ankle) could not even get on the floor, still recovering from operations. Nowitzki has already been ruled out by coach Rick Carlisle of Dallas for the regular season opener next week.
