Shaun Livingston said that he'll be more aggressive on the offensive end for however long Stephen Curry (knee) is sidelined.
"I have to be more aggressive just because of the production that's out," Livingston said. "I don't expect to make all of that up — this guy leads the league in scoring. But it's really important we all remain aggressive and confident." Livingston knocked down 7-of-8 shots during Wednesday's series clinching Game 5 win over Houston, on his way to 16 points, three boards, three assists and just one turnover. Curry likely won't be ready for the start of the second-round, so Livingston could make for a nice low-budget DFS play when the Dubs second-round series begins. Apr 28 - 6:47 PM

Shaun Livingston made 7-of-8 shots for 16 points during the Warriors' Game 5 victory, adding three boards, three assists and just one turnover in 28 minutes.

Livingston is a savvy defender whose offense is underrated -- he's not a 3-point threat, but he's a great passer who consistently uses his 6'7" frame to shoot over smaller guards from the paint out to 20 feet. Steph Curry (sprained knee) has an uncertain return date, so Livingston could earn at least a few more starts at PG in the second round of the playoffs.
Apr 28 - 1:25 AM

Shaun Livingston scored nine points on 4-of-8 shooting with nine assists, five rebounds and one turnover in 23 minutes in Sunday's 121-94 win over the Rockets.

He started the game on the bench with Stephen Curry back in the lineup, but the MVP left the game at halftime due to a knee injury and Livingston was back in the first unit for the second half. It sounds like Curry could miss some time due to his sprained knee and he will have an MRI on Monday, so Livingston could have some more starts coming his way. When Livingston started Game 2 and Game 3, he averaged 16.0 points, 4.5 assists, 3.5 boards and 2.5 steals, so he will be a solid option in DFS.
Apr 24 - 6:55 PM

Shaun Livingston is hoping to stay with the Warriors beyond this season.

"I want to stay here as long as I can," Livingston said. "It’s a unique and special situation. A lot of guys including myself, I want to be here for as long as I possibly can depending on the contract situation." The Warriors have a team option for the 2016-17 season, but Warriors GM Bob Meyers strongly hinted that the team will pick up the option. "It’s a good deal for us, and we see him in our future," Meyers said. The backup PG has thrived in two straight starts with 16 points in each outing, but he could be back on the bench for Game 4 on Sunday if Stephen Curry (ankle) is cleared.
Apr 22 - 11:02 AM

Shaun Livingston drew his second straight start on Thursday vs. the Rockets and looked great again, scoring 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting with five boards, three assists and three steals in 30 minutes.

Klay Thompson recently implied that Livingston is the best backup PG in the league, so he certainly made a strong argument tonight. Livingston also scored 16 points in Game 2 with two rebounds, six assists, and two steals, but it sounds like coach Steve Kerr is planning on having Stephen Curry (ankle) back for Game 4. If Curry plays, Livingston can't be trusted in fantasy lineups.
Apr 22 - 1:15 AM

Klay Thompson said Shaun Livingston is as good of a backup point guard as you can get.

Livingston scored 16 points to go with two rebounds, six assists, and two steals in a spot start for Stephen Curry (ankle) in Monday's Game 2 win over Houston and Thompson was impressed with his play. "I'm mesmerized by Shaun Livingston," Thompson said. "You can't ask for a better back-up point guard in this league." We'll have to wait and see if Curry is available for Game 3 on Thursday, but Livingston will again be in for big minutes if the reigning NBA MVP can't suit up.
Apr 19 - 10:50 AM

Shaun Livingston scored 16 points in a spot start on Monday against the Rockets, adding two rebounds, six assists and two steals in 29 minutes.

He made 7-of-9 from the field and killed the Rockets in the paint. Livingston was playing on the ball a lot more while he was really effective on his off-ball cuts. The Warriors might as well rest Stephen Curry (ankle) again on Thursday, so there might be minutes available for Livingston again.
Apr 19 - 1:49 AM

Shaun Livingston is getting the start on Monday in place of Stephen Curry (ankle).

He is expected to play around 30 minutes in the first unit. Livingston should be logging all of his minutes in the first unit and he should share the play-making chances with Draymond Green. Leandro Barbosa and Andre Iguodala should see a slight bump in production, as well.
Apr 18 - 10:01 PM

Shaun Livingston scored nine points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one turnover against the Rockets on Saturday.

He might be looking at more run if the Warriors do what to take it easy on Stephen Curry (ankle). Coach Steve Kerr does seem to like Livingston off the bench, but he would get a nice bump without Curry in the lineup. For what it's worth, Curry seemed to downplay the injury after the game.
Apr 16 - 7:12 PM

Shaun Livingston came off the Warriors' bench on Sunday for four points, two rebounds, four assists and one block.

Livingston was a rest candidate but he wound up playing 22 minutes to help Golden State snap a 33-game losing streak at San Antonio. The Warriors scored only 35 points in the first half, their lowest mark all season, but they held the Spurs to 37.8 percent shooting and rode to victory behind a 37-point game from Stephen Curry.
Apr 10 - 9:37 PM

Shaun Livingston will play on Sunday vs. the Spurs.

Coach Steve Kerr said on Saturday that he was considering giving Livingston the night off, but he will be active tonight and will see his normal workload off the bench. He's not a good fantasy option, though.
Apr 10 - 5:42 PM

Shaun Livingston could rest on Sunday against the Spurs.

It's pretty cool that Livingston has been so durable with the Warriors after one of the ugliest injuries in NBA history earlier in his career. If he's out, Ian Clark will be picking up some run.
Apr 9 - 11:29 PM

Shaun Livingston said that he's planning on playing Thursday vs. the Spurs, as well as in the Dubs upcoming back-to-back set Saturday in Memphis and Sunday in San Antonio.

He should be out there as the Warriors look to win out their final four games of the season. However, with averages of just 6.3 points and 2.9 assists on the year, Livingston is not a viable target in almost any setting.
Apr 7 - 2:11 PM

Steve Kerr said that he's considering giving Shaun Livingston another rest day during their back-to-back set on Apr. 9 vs. the Grizzlies or Apr. 10 vs. the Spurs.

Livingston isn't worth owning while Stephen Curry is active, so this report doesn't have many fantasy implications. If Livingston does get a game off, Ian Clark and Leandro Barbosa will pick up the slack.
Apr 3 - 6:32 PM

Shaun Livingston (rest) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Wizards, scoring eight points with four boards and two assists in 20 minutes.

He could get some more maintenance days, and he's just not worth deploying in most leagues while Stephen Curry is active. Leave him on the wire.
