Warriors Injury Update: Shaun Livingston return date unclear


By on 9/21/2014 06:00:00 AM

The Golden State Warriors approach training camp coming off a 51-win season, but lost in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. Only six players appeared in 70 or more games last season and two key players, David Lee and Andre Iguodala missed significant time. The Warriors are hoping for a healthy roster heading into training camp, but there is some uncertainty, as the return date for Shaun Livingston is still unclear.

As reported by Kurt Helin of NBCSports.com, Livingston had surgery for a toe injury that occurred during the playoffs. The initial timetable for his return was six to eight weeks. But according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, Livingston's return date remains a mystery.
The acquisition of Livingston should help the Warriors in the back court, particularly off the bench with his veteran leadership. The Warriors are hoping for an all-around improvement off the bench, which should help over the course of a long season and through the playoffs.

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.
