A warm up is important to a coach. It can be an indicator to identify which players are focused and which are not. Also the warm up may identify players carrying an injury.

Coaches have different theories on when to name the team to play. An ideal method so as to have a focused and intense warm up is to name the team just before players take the court. This can prevent those not named interrupting the warm up.
