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.

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.

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.
Oct 2 - 4:18 PM

Shaun Livingston (toe surgery) shot around without a protective boot after Tuesday's practice.

He's expected to miss most if not all of the preseason and may not return until mid-November, though he's hoping to return for opening night. With a reserve role behind one of the league's premier backcourts, there's no reason to bother with the veteran in fantasy leagues.
Oct 1 - 12:53 PM

Shaun Livingston (toe) is targeting a Warriors debut on opening night.

He could miss the first couple weeks of the season after his August toe surgery. The Warriors will use him in the second unit, but Livingston's role won't be as prominent as it was with the Nets. He's not worth drafting in most leagues.
Sep 30 - 12:43 AM

Steve Kerr said that he expects Shaun Livingston to be out the first "couple of weeks" of the regular season.

"[Livingston's] doing much better. The toe is healed," said Kerr. "But he needs a few weeks on the court running and getting his conditioning and his strength and his timing before he’s really ready to get into a game. So I anticipate he’s going to miss a couple of weeks of the regular season, but we’ll see how it goes." Livingston averaged 8.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 1.2 steals with the Nets last season, and his limited upside partnered with his extensive injury history takes him out of the conversation in standard leagues.
Sep 26 - 4:44 PM

Warriors GM Bob Myers said that Shaun Livingston (toe surgery) will miss "most" of training camp.

Livingston needs on-court time to mesh with his teammates, but Golden State's priority is keeping him healthy. He's missed an average of 28.4 games per season during his 10-year career, and that doesn't include the 2007-08 season he missed after his devastating knee injury. Hopefully we'll see him back on the court during the preseason, but his toe injury makes him an even riskier fantasy option in deep leagues.
Sep 23 - 6:45 PM

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.
Sep 12 - 8:43 PM

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.
Aug 15 - 5:23 PM

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.
Jul 11 - 9:07 PM

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.
Jul 11 - 11:17 AM

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.
