The NBA released its scrimmage schedule today, and the Miami Heat will face the Sacramento Kings, Utah Jazz and Memphis Grizzlies before the eight “seeding” games to round out the regular season.

The Heat team will travel to the Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort Wednesday. Players and staff will need to receive two negative COVID-19 tests at least 24 hours apart. And Miami will start training camp as soon as Friday.

Derrick Jones Jr. and another Heat player have received positive COVID-19 tests. Miami’s facility is shut down for all workout activity; players and staff still undergo testing there.
