Warriors Injury Update: Shaun Livingston out 6 to 8 weeks after surgery

By on 8/15/2014 06:30:00 AM

The Golden State Warriors headed into this off season having won 51 games, but lost in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. A problem for the Warriors was injuries, as only six players appeared in 70 or more games and two key players, David Lee and Andre Iguodala missed significant time. With attempts to improve next season, the Warriors are hoping for a healthy roster heading into training camp. But there is bad news on the injury front, as Shaun Livingston will be out 6 to 8 weeks following surgery.

Marc J. Spears, NBA writer for Yahoo! Sports, tweeted the following on Livingston's status.
The surgery will sideline Livingston until training camp and depending on how quick his rehab goes, he may miss the beginning of camp.  Livingston initially injured his toe during the playoffs and the hope was that rest would be the cure.  After several weeks with no improvement, Livingston opted for surgery.

Livingston has played for nine different teams during his nine-year NBA career.  Last season with the Nets, he averaged 8.3 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. In 466 career games, Livingston is averaging seven points, 3.4 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game.
