Shaun Livingston will rest on Sunday vs. the Magic.
He's only playing 17.4 minutes per game this season, so this won't have a huge impact on the rotation. With Livingston out, Ian Clark gets a small bump off the bench and Andre Iguodala will run the offense a bit more than usual for the second unit. Jan 22 - 10:16 AM

Shaun Livingston said once again that he's hoping to re-sign with the Warriors this summer.

"They’ve found a way to fit me in and make the most of my talents, the ones that I have left," Livingston said. "Just having a comfort zone here, getting adapted, having a family in the Bay, I would love to stay here." Assuming the Warriors re-sign Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant this summer, the Warriors will have to be creative to fit Livingston under the salary cap. Livingston is averaging 4.9 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 17.3 minutes per game this season.

Shaun Livingston (left hip, right elbow contusions) will be available for Monday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Originally listed as questionable, Livingston should see his normal workload of 17.2 minutes per game. He's not a fantasy option with season averages of 4.7 points and 1.7 assists.

Shaun Livingston (left hip, right elbow contusions) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Nuggets.

Livingston suffered these injuries during the Dubs victory over the Mavs on Saturday night, and it wouldn't be all that shocking to see Steve Kerr dish out a rest day to the 31-year-old veteran for a matchup with the Nuggets. If he's out, Ian Clark and Andre Iguodala would likely split his minutes, although that really doesn't mean much.

Shaun Livingston said that he would like to re-sign with the Warriors this summer.

"But you just have to wait and see. I’d love to be here. I’d love to, honestly, finish my career here in the Bay," Livingston said. "It’s been a great ride, a great three years. If the opportunity presented itself and [there are] similar offers out there, I’d love to come back." Livingston is in the third and final year of a three-year, $16.6 million contract, but he's likely looking at a significant raise under the new salary cap. With Andre Iguodala also hitting free agency and Stephen Curry in need of a new deal, Livingston returning to the Warriors doesn't seem likely.

Shaun Livingston (rest) will not play against the Jazz on Thursday night.

The Warriors haven't announced any other players sitting tonight, so perhaps everyone else will be a go. Livingston has played 17.3 minutes per game on the season as the backup point guard behind Stephen Curry. Those minutes should be going to Ian Clark and Patrick McCaw, so both of those guys could be a factor tonight in a possible blowout.

Shaun Livingston will rest on Friday against the Nuggets.

It's just rest for one of their most important bench players. With the Warriors losing guys like Leandro Barbosa, Livingston should get around 20 minutes per game this season. He doesn't offer enough upside while the Warriors are at 100 percent, though.

The Warriors have been pushing Shaun Livingston to try more 3-pointers this year.

Quite a few players are working on their 3-pointers this offseason. Livingston has hit a grand total of six 3-pointers since the start of the 2008-09 season. On top of that, he only attempted 12 shots from beyond 20 feet last season. For now, don't expect him to have many treys.

The Warriors will pick up their $5.8 million team option for Shaun Livingston.

He'll be a combo guard and might even see his minutes bump up with the lack of depth on the Warriors now. In the playoffs last year, Livingston averaged 8.2 points, 3.2 boards, 3.3 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.2 blocks. That's a fair expectation going forward, but he's still not a strong target in standard leagues.

The Warriors have picked up their team option on Shaun Livingston.

The Warriors could have saved $2.7 million by releasing Livingston prior to July 1, but that would make zero sense given how perfect of a fit Livingston is in the Warriors' system as Stephen Curry's backup. Livingston will now be on the book for $5.7 million next season, which is excellent value for a player of his caliber. This will not alter the Dubs chances of signing Kevin Durant as an unrestricted free agent.

Shaun Livingston followed up his Game 1 heroics with seven points, five assists and two rebounds during Sunday's easy victory in Oakland.

Livingston has developed an automatic mid-range shot and his length gives him a mismatch vs. players like Matthew Dellavedova and Kyrie Irving. He finished 3-of-4 from the field tonight, while backcourt mate Leandro Barbosa added 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting. The Warriors' bench has thus far been a decisive advantage in the series.

After tearing his ACL and PCL nine years ago, Shaun Livingston said he still has to take care of his knee every day.

"I still have to train. I still have to train and do all my rehab. I have to ice," Livingston said. "It’s really a day-to-day routine. I can’t get behind." This makes his comeback story even better and it's no secret that he was the hero of Game 1 for the Warriors with a playoff career-high 20 points with four rebounds, three assists and one steal. "I just kind of stayed true to my game, played to my strengths," he said. If Livingston and the rest of the Warriors' bench can stay hot, the Cavs are going to be in serious trouble.

Shaun Livingston was magnificent during a Game 1 win over the Cavs on Thursday, scoring a playoff career-high 20 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and no turnovers in 27 minutes.

The Warriors bench was terrific and was the difference. Livingston played good defense to go with a full array of offensive moves. HIs length on defense and post-up presence have been his calling card, so that fits in nicely in this kind of matchup. He won't be this good, though.

Shaun Livingston has been ejected from Monday's game against the Blazers.

He was upset with the refs for what he thought was a missed foul call on C.J. McCollum. It did look like he was hit on the head on his way up, so he argued with the ref on the next trip up the court. Livingston finished with four points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two turnovers. We'll get more Stephen Curry than we bargained for.

Shaun Livingston handed out 10 assists against the Blazers on Saturday, adding five points, three rebounds and two turnovers.

This could be the last game as the starter for Livingston. The Blazers looked awesome today and Stephen Curry (knee) is expected to go through 3-on-3 on Sunday. Regardless, he's been fantastic this postseason.
