Even though the NBA lockout is threatening to cancel the upcoming season, the league today released its 2011-12 schedule amid the labor unrest.
The Wizards are slated to open the regular season Nov. 2 at home against the New Jersey Nets. Washington’s only nationally televised game is the final game of the season, April 18, vs. the Toronto Raptors (ESPN).
In other schedule news, there are only three NBA games scheduled for Christmas Day, down from five last season: the Celtics at the Knicks, noon; the Heat at the Mavericks, 2:30 p.m.; and the Bulls at the Lakers, 5 p.m.
Here is the entire Wizards’ schedule.
