Lakers release 2011 preseason schedule

May 4, 2011 | 11:01 am

Lakers Here is the Lakers' preseason schedule. This is, of course, optimistic thinking on the Lakers' part, considering the strong possibility of a lockout of some kind during the 2011-12 NBA season.

But even if the Lakers are making plans to trim down their training staff and the NBA players union is currently unhappy with the latest collective bargaining proposal from league owners, it never hurts to at least keep this handy to see what games you might miss.

Date      Opponent                        Location                                      Time

Oct. 9    Golden State Warriors       Fresno (Save Mart Center)            7 p.m.

Oct. 12  Atlanta Hawks                  Ontario (Citizens Bank Arena)       7 p.m.
