The Warriors are uncertain when Shaun Livingston (toe surgery) will be able to play.
He's questionable to start the season after his surgery back on on Aug. 15. Livingston was fantastic in Brooklyn due partially to his versatility and the team's lack of depth, but the Warriors won't need him nearly as much. He won't be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues due to his lower upside. Sep 19 - 9:25 PM

Shaun Livingston (right toe surgery) said he felt "great" after his cast was removed on Thursday and that he hopes to be ready for the season opener.

Livingston was on a minimum 6-8 week timetable based on an August 15 report and this fits snugly into that outlook. Leandro Barbosa was brought on as insurance along with July acquisition Brandon Rush, so the Warriors have mobilized to play it safe, and along with this good news we haven't heard anything specific that would cause us to rule out his chances of playing on Opening Night.

Shaun Livingston underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right foot big toe earlier this week, and he's expected to be out a minimum of 6-8 weeks.

This will sideline Livingston right up until training camp, and depending on how the recovery goes, he could miss the beginning of camp. He reportedly hurt his toe during the playoffs and was hoping that rest would be the cure. When things did not improve, Livingston opted for surgery. Livingston averaged 8.3 points, 3.2 assists, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.2 steals over 26.0 minutes of action with the Nets last season, and it's possible he gets close to those numbers as the Warriors primary reserve off the bench.

Shaun Livingston will miss the next 3-4 weeks with a sprained right big toe he injured during the playoffs.

Livingston doesn't need the offseason work like a younger player and the only concern here is if the situation lingers into the preseason. We'll let you know if that is the case.

The Warriors officially signed Shaun Livingston to a three-year, $16 million deal on Friday.

Livingston averaged 8.3 points, 3.2 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals with the Nets last season, and he'll play both guard positions off the Warriors' bench this season. In other news, Golden State's $9.8 million traded-player exception expired on Thursday without being used, likely because LeBron James' indecision has frozen most trade talks and negotiations.

Combo guard Shaun Livingston will sign with the Warriors for three years and $16 million, according to Yahoo! Sports.

We had Livingston tied to the Warriors about 20 hours ago and it appears to be happening. They're not going to bring back Jordan Crawford and Steve Blake, so the need for a solid combo guard was apparent. Livingston's return from a devastating knee injury is one of the league's best stories of all time, and he could be an exciting player off the bench for the Warriors next season. And according to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Warriors are now 'hard capped,' meaning roster changes can only come via minimum signings and trades, as their bi-annual exception went to Jermaine O'Neal last summer.
Jul 1 - 8:38 PM

The Warriors are said to be desperately looking for a back up guard, with names like Shaun Livingston, Darren Collison, Patty Mills, Ramon Sessions, Mario Chalmers and Rodney Stuckey all in the mix.

All of the aforementioned should be in the Warriors' price range and they need a combo guard, as they're not bringing back Jordan Crawford or Steve Blake, leaving only Nemanja Nedovic as a backup guard. ESPN's Marc Stein is also reporting that Sacramento, Charlotte, Minnesota, Orlando and San Antonio also have interest in Livingston, which means it's going to be very difficult for the Nets to keep him.

Free agent point guard Shaun Livingston is a name to "watch" for Wolves fans according to Jon Krawczynski.

Livingston had a nice season and will likely get good interest on the free agent market. This is firmly in the rumor stage right now.
Jul 1 - 1:07 AM

The Sacramento Kings are reportedly interested in signing unrestricted free agent Shaun Livingston as their starting point guard.

With restricted free agent Isaiah Thomas' future in Sacramento still undecided, the 28-year-old Livingston could serve as the Kings' Plan B if Thomas receives an offer they don't want to match. There have also been rumblings about moving Thomas to a super sixth man role or even trading him, so it's also possible that Livingston could serve as Sacramento's Plan A here. He averaged 8.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 3.4 dimes, and 1.2 steals for the Nets last season and would become an interesting fantasy option if he found himself starting for the Kings.

The Nets would like to retain free agency-bound Shaun Livingston, but may be priced out of retaining his services according to sources.

Livingston served as a solid (and healthy) backcourt option for the Nets this season and averaged 8.3 points, 2.7 boards, 3.4 assists, and 1.2 steals over 76 regular season games. The Nets want to hang onto the 28-year-old, but don't have a lot of cap space and will need Livingston to take a steep hometown discount to have any chance of re-signing him.

Shaun Livingston will return to the Nets' starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 1 matchup vs. the Heat, sending Alan Anderson back to the bench.

"We're going back to how we were," said coach Jason Kidd, who started Anderson at SG for Games 6 and 7 vs. the Raptors in the first round. Livingston averaged only 14 minutes per game in those contests, but vs. the Heat he should get closer to the 26 minutes he played during the regular season.
May 6 - 5:39 PM

Shaun Livingston (illness) played 29 minutes against the Raptors on Friday with three points, six boards, four assists and one steal.

He missed Thursday's practice due to an illness and it didn't seem to affect him tonight. Livingston did only take three shots from the field tonight, which is not really a big surprise since he's not really a volume scorer. He'll be ready for Sunday's Game 4.
Apr 25 - 10:47 PM

Shaun Livingston (illness) will play in Game 3 vs. the Raptors on Friday.

Despite missing practice on Thursday, he's been expected to play since yesterday and this news makes it official. Livingston will likely be ready to go and be in the neighborhood of 30 minutes tonight. He'll operate in the post to help the Nets and their spacing tonight.
Apr 25 - 5:17 PM

Shaun Livingston (illness) remains on track to play in Friday's Game 3 despite sitting out the morning shootaround.

Coach Jason Kidd said he'd be stunned if Livingston didn't suit up. Through the first two games of the series, Livingston is averaging 11.0 points, 4.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 28.0 minutes. We'd project similar numbers Friday night.
Apr 25 - 10:23 AM

Nets' coach Jason Kidd said that Shaun Livingston (illness) will play in Game 3.

Well that solves that. Livingston missed Thursday's practice with his illness, but Kidd's words left no open questions as to whether the 28-year-old will suit up for Friday's Game 3 matchup against the Raptors. Livingston is averaging 11.5 points in 28 minutes per game in the series so far, so he should see plenty of minutes on Friday as the Nets attempt to take the series lead at home.
