    Warriors' Shaun Livingston: Scores 16 points on eight shots in series-clinching win over Rockets

    Livingston recorded 16 points (7-8 FG, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, and three assists in 28 minutes during the Warriors' 114-81 win against the Rockets in Wednesday's Game 5. Livingston filled in well once again for the injured Stephen Curry (knee), and the Warriors walloped the Rockets to move on to round two. Through five games in the first round, Livingston averaged 13.2 points (on 59 percent from the field) to go with 4.8 assists, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.2 steals in 27 minutes. Livingston is likely to start at least a game or two in the second round while Curry continues to recover, which will likely make him a solid DFS option whenever the next series arrives.

    Warriors' Shaun Livingston: Contributes 16 points in second straight start

    Livingston filled in for Stephen Curry (ankle) for a second straight game, tallying 16 points (6-13 FG, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists and three steals over 30 minutes in Thursday's 101-85 Game 3 loss to the Rockets. The veteran guard made a key defensive play late in the game that could have led to a Warriors win, stealing a pass from Trevor Ariza that led to an Ian Clark layup that put Golden State up 96-95 with 10.6 seconds remaining. Although James Harden's subsequent heroics essentially nullified that play, Livingston put together a second consecutive solid effort in Curry's absence. He was able to match his Game 2 scoring total, and although his assists saw a slight dip, the 30-year-old was more active on the glass Thursday and also played his typically solid defense. Even with Curry expected back for Game 4 on Sunday, Livingston will undoubtedly continue serving as an integral part of the second unit.

    Warriors' Shaun Livingston: Efficient as starter in Game 2 win

    Livingston (illness) scored 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-4 FT) to go with six assists, two rebounds, and two steals across 29 minutes during the Warriors' 115-106 win versus the Rockets on Monday. Livingston left Sunday's practice early due to an illness. However, he ultimately stepped up and started Monday's matchup with Stephen Curry (ankle) being ruled out after his pregame warm-up was cut short. During the three games that Curry missed in the regular season, Livingston started and averaged nine points, 4.7 assists, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.3 steals in 30 minutes per contest. If Curry is sidelined once again for Game 3 on Thursday, Livingston is more than likely to draw another start.

    Warriors' Shaun Livingston: Will start Monday

    Livingston (illness) will start in Monday's matchup with the Rockets. Steph Curry has been ruled out for game two against the Rockets, and Livingston will likely take on a majority of his workload. He was also questionable heading into this matchup due to an illness that left him out of Sunday's practice. However, he apparently is feeling well enough to take the court. Curry's status for game three is currently unknown, but Livingston should have an opportunity to produce relatively well Monday.

    Warriors' Shaun Livingston: Will start if Curry can't go

    Livingston, who will start at point guard Monday night against Houston if Stephen Curry (ankle) is unable to go, left Sunday's practice early due to illness, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Curry sat out Sunday's practice so that he could get treatment on the ankle. There will be more treatment Monday followed by a test of ankle at the shootaround. At that point, we should learn more about Livingston's chances of starting. If he does start, Livingston will probably be limited to 30 minutes -- he averaged 29.5 mpg in three starts this season.

    Warriors' Shaun Livingston: More minutes with Curry sidelined

    Livingston scored nine points (3-8 FG, 2-4 FT) with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one blocked shot in 25 minutes in Saturday's win over the Rockets in Game 1 of the Warriors' opening-round playoff series. A couple of factors contributed to Livingston's elevated level of playing time: Stephen Curry left the game and did not return after suffering an ankle injury late in the first half, and did the game was an absolute blowout as Golden State held a 27-point lead at halftime. There's talk of Curry being shut down for Game 2 on Monday, which would mean a possible starting role for Livingston, but that doesn't mean he'll be a direct one-to-one replacement for the star guard. Livingston will share extra shot attempts with Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green. As a starter in 2015-16, Livingston averaged nine field-goal attempts, 9.0 points, 4.7 assists and 3.7 rebounds.

    Warriors' Shaun Livingston: Scores 14 points in Tuesday's loss

    Livingston tallied 14 points (6-6 FG, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist, and one steal across 21 minutes in Tuesday's 124-117 overtime loss to the Timberwolves. Livingston has been hyper efficient while seeing between 20 and 28 minutes in all of the Warriors' last five games, averaging 8.8 points while shooting 67.9 percent from the field. He was able to shoulder some of the scoring burden Tuesday with Stephen Curry struggling to the tune of a 7-for-25 shooting night, but that's generally not an ideal role for Livingston to fill. The Warriors are at their best when he is serving more of a facilitator role on the second unit, but even those skills rarely translate to meaningful fantasy production, as he's recorded no more than six assists in any game since March 3. Moreover, his minutes could start to recede slightly down the stretch with the Warriors ushering Andre Iguodala (knee) back into the mix following a three-week absence.

    Warriors' Shaun Livingston: Integral in overtime win

    Livingston scored six points (2-6 FG, 2-2 FT) with six rebounds, four assists, two steals, and one blocked shot in 28 minutes Wednesday night in an overtime win over Utah. In the grand scheme of things, Wendsday's box score represents very modest production, but Livingston was a key contributor during the fourth quarter when the Warriors went small and fought back from a deficit to force the extra stanza. Livingston had the offensive rebound and assist on Klay Thompson's game-tying bucket. He's finding himself with more playing time due to Andre Iguodala's hamstring injury and just finished his best month of the season, but the production rarely reaches the level of fantasy usefulness.

    Warriors' Shaun Livingston: Will rest Sunday

    Livingston will sit out Sunday's game in order to rest, Rusty Simmons of the Los Angeles Chronicle reports. Livingston, a mainstay of the second unit for Golden State, will rest. He is averaging 20.1 minutes in March but is using those minutes quite efficiently. His main job is to back up 2015 MVP Stephen Curry, but now that he is officially out, it seems that Leandro Barbosa will assume most of his minutes.

    Warriors' Shaun Livingston: Scores 11 points Wednesday

    Livingston contributed 11 points (3-6 FG, 5-7 FT), five boards, three assists, and one steal over 26 minutes in Wednesday's 114-98 victory over the Clippers. It's just the second double-digit scoring effort of the month for Livingston, who makes his presence felt more as a distributor and defender for the second unit rather than a shot taker. He's been quite stellar on both fronts on a per-minute basis throughout March, averaging 3.8 dimes and 1.4 steals in just 20.1 minutes. That kind of court time won't make Livingston a useful asset in most fantasy formats, however, as his ceiling for production is rather limited.
