Insight: Livingston (8.3 ppg) is still dealing with a bruised toe, though he says that it's improving. While he's sidelined, Joe Johnson (15.8 ppg) will play shooting guard with Andrei Kirilenko (5.0 ppg) filling in at small forward.
4/11/2014 5:58:00 PM
Description: Brooklyn guard Shaun Livingston (foot) will miss Friday's game, according to Tim Bontemps of the New York Post.
Insight: Livingston has played 28.6 minutes per game over his last 45 games but doesn't do enough to be a fantasy factor. With Deron Williams and Livingston both out, Jorge Gutierrez and Alan Anderson will get the majority of the backcourt minutes.

Description: Brooklyn guard Shaun Livingston (rest) will miss Wednesday's game, according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News.
Insight: Livingston has played 28.6 minutes per game over his last 45 games but doesn't do enough to be a fantasy factor. His absence will give Alan Anderson a chance to get into the starting lineup.

Description: Brooklyn guard Shaun Livingston will start Wednesday's game against Portland. He sat out Sunday because of a back/tailbone injury. SOURCE: Rod Boone, Newsday
Insight: Livingston's return will likely bump Andrei Kirilenko out of the starting lineup. Though Livingston has definitely given the Nets a boost with his play this season, his fantasy contributions have been minimal (7.7 ppg, 3.1 apg, 3.2 rpg).
2/25/2014 4:40:00 PM
Description: Nets guard Shaun Livingston (bruised tailbone) will be a game-time decision Wednesday against the Trail Blazers.
Insight: Livingston missed his first game of the season Sunday night. He has averaged just 24 minutes, 5.9 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists his last seven games and the Nets just acquired Marcus Thornton, so there's no reason to hold Livingston in fantasy leagues.

Description: Nets guard Shaun Livingston will miss Sunday's game in Los Angeles. He's out with a tailbone injury. SOURCE: Rod Boone, Newsday
Insight: Livingston was limited to 12 minutes in Saturday's loss to Golden State and will have to miss his first game of the season on Sunday night. Look for Andrei Kirilenko (5.5 ppg) to get the start in Livingston's place.
2/23/2014 10:39:00 AM
Description: Brooklyn guard Shaun Livingston is questionable for Sunday's game with a bruised tailbone, according to Andrew Keh of the New York Times.
Insight: Livingston's X-rays came back negative, but he didn't sound optimistic that he'll be able to play. He hasn't been providing fantasy-worthy numbers anyway with averages of 5.9 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists his last seven games.
2/4/2014 5:18:00 PM
Description: Brooklyn guard Shaun Livingston has generated 11.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.8 steals over his last 18 games.
Insight: Livingston has been getting solid playing time even with Deron Williams back in the lineup. He's been particularly good in his last three games, averaging 17.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 3.7 steals.
11/1/2013 10:07:00 AM
Description: Brooklyn guard Shaun Livingston has been battling a sprained thumb and is questionable for Friday's game against Miami.
Insight: He had his thumb taped at practice on Thursday. His has minimal fantasy value even when healthy as Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Jason terry will eat up most of the guard minutes.

Insight: He had his thumb taped at practice on Thursday. The 28-year-old was limited to one point and three assists in the season opener Wednesday night at Cleveland.
7/6/2013 10:19:00 PM
Description: Former Cavs and Wizards point guard Shaun Livingston signed with Brooklyn on Saturday. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: It's a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum. The lanky point guard averaged 6.3 ppg and 3.3 apg last season. Those numbers are almost identical to his career averages (6.7 ppg and 3.5 apg). Despite being just 27 years of age, Livingston is already on his eighth NBA team.
4/15/2013 7:05:00 PM
Description: Cavs point guard Shaun Livingston is back in the lineup after missing Sunday's matchup with Philadelphia because of back spasms.
Insight: The fact that Livingston is indeed active should go a long way Monday with so much of the league taking the night off to rest before the postseason. Double-digit points shouldn't be too much to ask of Livingston against a depleted Miami team.
4/15/2013 9:50:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers guard Shaun Livingston (back) is a game-time decision for Monday against Miami.
Insight: He missed Sunday's game at Philadelphia and scored a total of nine points in the previous two games. His fantasy value is minimal.
3/29/2013 9:50:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers point guard Shaun Livingston is averaging 12.4 ppg, 4.8 apg, 3.1 rpg and 1.3 spg in eight games since taking over as the starting point guard.
Insight: Livingston assumed starting point guard duties after Kyrie Irving went down with a shoulder injury. He has scored in double figures in seven of eight games since becoming the starter.
3/12/2013 9:47:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers point guard Shaun Livingston had 12 points, six assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block Tuesday against the Wizards.
Insight: Livingston has taken over as the starting point guard with Kyrie Irving out for 3-4 weeks with a shoulder injury. He's averaging 13 ppg in his four starts for Cleveland.
11/15/2012 4:51:00 PM
Description: Point guard Shaun Livingston has agreed to join the Washington Wizards.
Insight: The Wizards released Jannero Pargo to make room for Livingston on the roster. Livingston gives the team some much needed depth at point guard in the wake of John Wall's knee injury. He averaged 5.5 ppg in 58 games for Milwaukee in 2011-12.
3/7/2011 10:29:00 PM
Description: Shaun Livingston (17 points, two steals, and block in 23 minutes), Dominic McGuire (two points, five boards, a steal, and a block in 28 minutes), and D.J. White (nine points, six boards, and a block in 27 minutes) split the extra minutes that were left by the void of Stephen Jackson on the wing.
Insight: Not fun. Livingston probably has the highest upside of this bunch since he can add some steals and assists. He also gets a bonus for being D.J. Augustin's handcuff. Only deep leagues need apply.
2/14/2011 10:22:00 PM
Description: D.J. Augustin was the second best point guard for Charlotte again with nine points, seven dimes, and a three in 26 minutes. Shaun Livingston looked like he never even suffered a gruesome knee injury by playing 22 minutes and producing nine points and four assists in 22 minutes.
Insight: The stat line doesn't tell the story here. The Bobcats were a completely different team with Livingston on the court as he had a +/- of 16 compared to Augustin's +4. There is no way Augustin should be cut in any format, but his owners can probably kiss the top-15 point guard production goodbye. Livingston has a low ceiling, therefore he is only worthy of adding in deep leagues since this looks to be a time-share situation.
