The NBA Scrimmages TV Schedule for the New Orleans Pelicans is out with the scrimmages set to begin from the 22nd of July.
The scrimmages are near as teams gear up for the NBA season restart. The practice matches are scheduled between 22 July to 28 July. Only 4 teams have announced TV schedules of scrimmage games until now, but others could soon follow suit.
NBA Scrimmages TV Schedule: New Orleans Pelicans
The team informed that Pelicans.com, the Pelicans mobile App, and FOX Sports New Orleans will broadcast the scrimmage games for New Orleans Pelicans.
The first two scrimmage games will be live-streamed on Pelicans.com and the Pelicans mobile App. The live-stream will be limited to a confined perimeter because of the NBA regional broadcast rules. The stream will be accessible within a 75-mile radius.
FOX Sports New Orleans will televise Pelicans’ last scrimmage game on 27 July. The games will also be aired on ESPN New Orleans 100.3FM.
The Pelicans will be without the services of Zion Williamson for the Scrimmages as he recently left the bubble to attend to a family matter.
He will need to return to the NBA Bubble by 25th of July to have any chance of making the team for the Pelicans’ opening game of the NBA restart.
On returning to the Bubble, Zion will need to quarantine for 4 days, provided he has been taking the test everyday while he is away and is testing negative.
