The NBA season is scheduled to restart on July 30, but before then, each team will engage in three inter-squad scrimmages as part of final preparations. The scrimmage schedule opens on Wednesday, July 22 and runs through Tuesday, July 28. We’ll be adding notable updates throughout the day, including final scores and injuries.
Here is a list of game for Monday, July 27:
FINAL: Los Angeles Lakers 123, Washington Wizards 116
FINAL: Sacramento Kings, 106, Los Angeles Clippers 102
FINAL: Utah Jazz 112, Brooklyn Nets 107

Note: All games will be available via NBA League Pass.
What to watch for
— We’ll see if Anthony Davis (eye) is able to go in the Lakers final tune-up before the seeding round begins this weekend. Davis got poked in the eye and was unable to return in the Lakers’ win over the Magic a few days ago.
— The Kings are expected to get De’Aaron Fox (ankle) into the rotation for Monday’s scrimmage. It’ll be a nice test for Fox, who has had issues keeping the ankle healthy this season. We’ll see how much he ends up playing, plus if we get a few other Kings regulars back in there.
— We may get to see some Zion Williamson for the Pelicans on Monday. He returned to the team after leaving for personal reasons and should be able to play in this game. If not, we’ll have to wait till the end of the week.
