NBA Lockout 2011: League Postpones Training Camp, Cancels Preseason

The NBA announced on Friday that it was indefinitely suspending player training camps and has cancelled all 43 preseason games as a result of the current NBA Lockout and the lack of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

NEWS: The NBA announced today that player training camps for the 2011-12 season have been postponed indefinitely because a new collective bargaining agreement has not been reached with the National Basketball Players Association. Training camps were scheduled to open on October 3. In addition, the league canceled all preseason games scheduled from October 9 through October 15. (via NBA on Facebook)

Friday's announcement means that the 2011-12 NBA Preseason schedule is no longer relevant. As for the Boston Celtics, their first three preseason games were scheduled for Oct. 10 against the Philadelphia 76ers, Oct. 15 against the New York Knicks and Oct. 16 against the Toronto Raptors.
