Victor Wembanyama’s NBA debut: Live updates from Spurs-Mavericks, scores, highlights, how to watch, TV channel


It’s finally time. Victor Wembanyama, the most hyped NBA prospect since LeBron James, will make his regular-season debut Wednesday night when the San Antonio Spurs host the Dallas Mavericks in both teams’ 2023-24 season opener. The game tips at 9:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on ESPN.

Wembanyama’s debut has been anticipated for more than a year, especially after a pair of exhibition games in the Las Vegas area last October when Wembanyama went head-to-head with another top 2023 NBA Draft pick, Scoot Henderson. Wembanyama dazzled in his French league games before heading stateside for June’s draft and playing in Las Vegas Summer League and the NBA preseason. Each time out, he added another highlight — many times doing things we aren’t used to seeing on an NBA basketball court.

All eyes will be on San Antonio and Wembanyama this season, and it all starts Wednesday. Follow Yahoo Sports for live updates from Wembanyama’s NBA debut, including highlights, scores and more.
