Shaun Livingston had eight points, three rebounds, five assists, a steal and two blocks in 28 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.
Livingston is averaging 20 minutes, 6.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.6 steals over his last five games, so is only worth a look if you're in a very deep league. The Warriors won their 14th straight game and are now a ridiculous 19-2 on the season after tonight's tough win. Dec 11 - 2:02 AM

Shaun Livingston scored a season-high 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting in Orlando on Wednesday, rounding out his line with three rebounds, five assists and one steal.

Livingston's 27 minutes off the bench were also a season high and he benefited from both the lopsided score and the absence of Leandro Barbosa (knee). He's been a liability in all fantasy formats this year, and will remain so as long as Stephen Curry is healthy.
Nov 26 - 10:12 PM

Shaun Livingston can probably play five-minute stretches with the Warriors.

He is still battling a toe injury and made a surprising four-minute debut on Wednesday. Livingston will back up Stephen Curry and won't have fantasy value anywhere near to what it was with the Nets last year while the Warriors are healthy in the backcourt.
Oct 31 - 4:21 PM

Shaun Livingston played four minutes on Wednesday, despite being listed as doubtful due to a toe injury.

He didn't score and will have a tough time making much noise playing behind studs like Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. But he could break loose on nights when the Warriors are up big.
Oct 30 - 2:01 AM

Shaun Livingston is expected to return to action on Saturday, Nov. 1 against the Lakers after missing the start of the season with a toe injury.

Livingston will see minutes backing up both guard spots for the Dubs this season, but would likely need for one of them to get injured in order to be worth owning in most leagues.
Oct 29 - 8:21 PM

Shaun Livingston (toe) is not expected to play on Wednesday.

This echoes the Tuesday news, but Livingston is getting close to his GSW debut and has been practicing. Leandro Barbosa will play behind Stephen Curry tonight.
Oct 29 - 2:38 PM

Shaun Livingston (toe surgery) scrimmaged on Tuesday, but he remains doubtful for Wednesday's season opener vs. the Kings.

Livingston is making progress, but his backup role and lack of a 3-point shot really limits his fantasy value. He's likely going to have his minimal minutes limited as head coach Steve Kerr eases him back into things, and the waiver wire seems like a suitable place for the 10-year veteran.
Oct 28 - 5:37 PM

Shaun Livingston (toe surgery) was limited during Monday's practice, and he remains doubtful for the Warriors season opener on Wednesday.

Livingston is a guy that offers much more to his actual team, than he does to a fantasy squad, and he's not on the radar in standard leagues. We're not expecting him to suit up for opening night, as Kerr has stated he'd like to get Livingston's conditioning in check before he sees time on the court.

Shaun Livingston (toe surgery) practiced on Sunday but he remains doubtful for the Warriors' season opener.

Golden State is playing it safe with Livingston, whom they'll rely on for playmaking with the second unit. He's a better real-world fit with the Warriors than he is in fantasy leagues, where his lack of 3-point shooting and injury history keeps him off the standard-league radar.
Oct 26 - 3:29 PM

Coach Steve Kerr says it's "highly doubtful" that Shaun Livingston (toe) will play in the opener on Oct. 29.

Livingston keeps saying he hopes to be ready, but it doesn't sound likely to happen. He'll help back up both guard spots occupied by the league's most exciting backcourt duo - Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.
Oct 21 - 8:55 PM

Shaun Livingston (toe) is recovering on schedule but coach Steve Kerr expects him to miss 1-2 weeks to begin the regular season.

The Warriors' newly-signed veteran is still optimistic that he'll play in the season opener, but it's doubtful that the team will clear him to play. He'll fill a combo-guard role off the bench, pairing with Leandro Barbosa in the backcourt, and there's no reason to target him in fantasy leagues.
Oct 12 - 8:32 PM

Shaun Livingston (toe) is making steady progress and is now doing everything but running on the court.

He is recovering from toe surgery and is not expected to be available for the start of the season. Livingston will provide the Warriors with solid depth at the PG/SG position but won't get enough minutes to matter in standard formats. We would not recommend taking him in standard formats.
Oct 11 - 4:41 PM

Shaun Livingston (toe) has been limited to shooting drills.

He received a good medical report according to head coach Steve Kerr, but he's not likely to suit up for any of the Warriors preseason games. Kerr expects Livingston to be sidelined the first couple weeks of the regular season as he gets his conditioning in order, and he doesn't look like someone that should be targeted in standard leagues.
Oct 10 - 4:58 PM

Shaun Livingston (toe surgery) is doubtful to play during the preseason.

Livingston is aiming to play in the Warriors' season opener, but his optimism was undermined by coach Steve Kerr, who said Livingston could miss "a couple of weeks" to begin the regular season. Leandro Barbosa will get more minutes as a backup PG in his absence, and Kerr also plans to use Andre Iguodala more often as a point-forward.
Oct 5 - 2:50 PM

Shaun Livingston (toe) missed practice on Thursday.

Expect this trend to continue as Livingston is still recovering from toe surgery. He hopes to return to the court by the season opener, but it does not make sense to rush his return to the court given his reserve role.
