The Spurs dropped their preseason opener on Monday falling the Phoenix Suns 91-86. Kawhi Leonard led the Spurs with 17 points while Jonathan Simmons added 10.

The Hawks had several players sit out Thursday’s opener. Paul Millsap and Jarrett Jack have been ruled out of the first two preseason games.

Mike Scott was a late scratch in Memphis due to a sore knee.
