Interim head coach Luke Walton said that he would like for Shaun Livingston to develop a 3-point shot.
"I think he needs to retrain his mind almost," Walton said. "Like when he sees that [he's naturally drifting into the paint], just to space out because we want him shooting threes, and I know he wants to do it." Of the 51 three-point attempts Livingston has taken throughout his 10-year career, only 10 have dropped in, so we wouldn't expect him to suddenly emerge as a 3-point threat. He could take some more treys, but he won't have a large enough role off the Dubs bench to be considered a viable option in most leagues. Oct 7 - 10:07 AM

Shaun Livingston started for Stephen Curry for the second half on Monday.

Curry has a head contusion and remains questionable to return. We'll be looking for any update as the game goes on. Livingston isn't much of a 3-point shooter, so expect the Warriors offense to change its flow. Klay Thompson is a good bet for his first 30-point game of the postseason.

Shaun Livingston, who had 18 points and a full stat line in Game 1, played just 14 minutes in Thursday's Game 2 win over the Rockets.

He hit all four of his shots to finish with eight points, four rebounds and zero turnovers, but will be tough to rely on in fantasy leagues while playing behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. He's probably got another couple nice games coming in these playoffs, but it will be impossible to figure out when they'll happen.

Shaun Livingston scored a career-best 16 first-half points in Game 1, finishing with 18 points, six rebounds, three assists and one steal to help Golden State earn a 110-106 win.

It's terrific to see Livingston thriving at such a high level of competition, having overcome a devastating knee injury that nearly ended his career in 2008. The Warriors defeated the Rockets by double-digit points in all four of their regular-season meetings but they survived a close decision tonight, buoyed by Livingston's efficient 6-of-8 field goals and 6-of-6 free throws.

Shaun Livingston said that his injury history makes this playoff push even more meaningful.

"Coming back and having a chance to play a major role on this team, that's what it's about," Livingston said. "We're going to enjoy this tonight, because this is not easy to do. This is my 11th year, and this is the farthest I've been. This is the farthest anybody's [on the team has] been, except [Leandro] Barbosa." Livingston had a brutal knee injury in 2007 and recently had surgery on his toe last summer, but he has been a steady presence off the bench during the Warriors' playoff push. He scored 10 points in 20 minutes during Game 6 on Friday while also adding one rebound and a block.
May 16 - 10:09 AM

Shaun Livingston scored 12 points in 20 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday with four rebounds and no turnovers on 5-of-7 from the field.

Not many people are going to talk about it because Stephen Curry broke the internet, but Livingston really had a great game. He played just 13 minutes in each of the first two games and he's earned more playing time going forward. He might start taking away some minutes from Leandro Barbosa or even Andre Iguodala.
Apr 24 - 1:19 AM

Shaun Livingston played 13 minutes off the bench against the Pelicans on Saturday with two points and one turnover.

Most of the talk heading into this game was that Livingston wasn't going to be in the rotation while Marreese Speights would be, but coach Steve Kerr gave the versatile perimeter guy some minutes. We'll see if that continues, but he obviously won't play more than 20 minutes unless there is a lot of garbage time.
Apr 18 - 7:03 PM

Shaun Livingston served his one-game suspension in Sunday's loss to the Spurs.

This is just a reminder that Livingston will be available for Tuesday and going forward following his regrettable actions.
Apr 6 - 9:14 AM

Shaun Livingston has been suspended one game for his low-blow hit to Dirk Nowitzki on Saturday.

With Livingston out, it would seem unlikely that Steve Kerr elects to give Stephen Curry a rest day. Leandro Barbosa and Andre Iguodala will have the opportunity for some extended minutes.

Shaun Livingston scored five points on 2-of-8 shooting with two rebounds, four assists and one steal in 21 minutes off the bench on Friday.

The Warriors have resisted resting guys too much but Andre Iguodala is already slated for a game off on Saturday against the Bucks. The Warriors have four games next week and Livingston might be able to carve out some late-round value if all goes well.
Mar 28 - 1:59 AM

Shaun Livingston will be rested for Tuesday's game vs. Portland.

With Livingston unavailable, expect Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala to see some extended minutes. Klay Thompson may also have his minutes restriction lifted tonight, so we'll be watching for any information on that. Stay tuned.

Shaun Livingston scored four points with three rebounds, five assists and one steal in 24 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

He hasn't seen an increase in playing time since the Klay Thompson (ankle) injury, so the Warriors are comfortable with his current role. Livingston should have better lines and will have a big chance on the nights Stephen Curry rests on the road.
Mar 22 - 1:16 AM

Shaun Livingston scored 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting with four rebounds and eight assists in Friday's loss to the Nuggets.

Livingston was a sleeper coming into this week precisely because the Warriors were bound to rest some of their guys, and they rested virtually everybody tonight. Livingston also had a week of late-round value before this week, so he has shown he should be in the mix as the Warriors might rest enough guys to keep him at that level of production. Justin Holiday (23 points, five treys, one steal, one block) was another big winner on shutdown night, but doesn't have any real fantasy value.
Mar 14 - 1:26 AM

Shaun Livingston, Justin Holiday and David Lee will start against the Nuggets on Friday.

With Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Andrew Bogut resting, these three guys should get a lot of run. Livingston is off to a nice start to his second half, averaging 8.4 points, 3.9 boards, 3.8 assists, 0.6 blocks and 0.5 steals in 22.3 minutes per game. He will likely have plenty of chances to make plays and will have a good chance to top his season high of 21 points.
Mar 13 - 2:26 PM

Shaun Livingston hit just 2-of-7 shots for four points, four rebounds and five assists in Wednesday's win over the Pistons.

Livingston has really cooled off over his last two games and as long as Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are healthy, it will be tough for Livingston to produce consistently.
