Livingston averaged 5.9 points, 2.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 0.3 blocks, and 0.6 steals in 19 minutes per game through 78 games in 2014-15.

The 29-year-old, who finished his 10th NBA season, is under team control through 2016-17. Livingston has been healthy lately, missing just 10 games in the past two regular seasons. Not only was Livingston a presence of defense for the Warriors, but his shooting efficiency was stellar at 50 percent from the field, though he was 0 percent from three, and 71 percent from the free-throw line. With Klay Thompson, Leandro Barbosa, Andre Iguodala, and Harrison Barnes all sharing minutes on the wing, and MVP Stephen Curry playing 33 minutes a game at the point, Livingston's minutes and production next season will mostly be similar to this season.

Livingston tallied 12 points and four rebounds in 20 minutes during Thursday's Game 3 bout against the Pelicans.

Livingston averaged 15.3 minutes through the first three games against the Pelicans and that's probably a good indicator of what he'll be given moving forward as the 29-year-old comes off the bench behind Stephen Curry. As it stands the veteran's limited role in the playoffs doesn't afford him much time for production across most postseason formats.

Livingston had a quiet night off the bench Thursday against Portland as he only managed to accrue two points (1-6 FG) and two rebounds in 16 minutes.

Livingston provides beneficial minutes off the bench in relief of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson but the veteran doesn't generally get enough playing time to generate worthwhile box scores. This dynamic isn't expected to change moving forward as Livingston remains a lackluster option unless coach Steve Kerr decides to rest one of the aforementioned guards in preparation for the playoffs.

Livingston served his one-game suspension Sunday and will be available to play Tuesday against the Pelicans.

Livingston earned a one-game suspension for inappropriate touching on Dirk Nowitzki in Saturday's game against the Mavs, and Livingston was forced to sit out Sunday's game as a result of the league-levied suspension.

Livingston has been suspended one game forhitting Dirk Nowitzki in the groin during Saturday's game. Livingston will not play Sunday.

The video of the incident shows Livingston getting posted up by Nowitzki. From the front camera, it looks like Livingston hits Nowitzki inappropriately, but from the reserve camera, it simply looks like Livingston was matched up with a much taller player and ended up goosing Nowitzky on accident. Either way, the incident became a how-to-do on Twitter on Saturday, and as a result, Livingston will sit out Sunday's game against the Spurs. He should be back in action for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

Livingston had eight assists in 25 minutes in Saturday night's win over the Bucks.

Golden State head coach Steve Kerr is determined to rest his starters on given night -- Saturday it was Andre Iguodala and Draymond Green -- and that means more duty for Livingston. Kerr's been handing out days off for the past few weeks and Livingston's numbers have bumped up. In his last 15 games, Livingston's averaged 4.9 assists per game, up from his 3.4 average for the season.

Livingston returned to the lineup Friday after being rested for a game. He had five points, two rebounds, four assists and a steal in 21 minutes in a win over the Grizzlies.

Since a brief spasm of production at the beginning of the month, when he hit for double-digit points in five of seven games, Livingston's numbers have been more subdued in the last seven games played. With Golden State having clinched the division and a spot in the postseason, Livingston and other key members of the rotation will get random days off between now and the end of the regular season.

Livingston will be rested for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group reports.

With the Western Conference's top seed essentially locked up, the Warriors will be resting some players in the coming weeks. Livingston's absence will leave more minutes for some combination of Leandro Barbosa, Justin Holiday and Brandon Rush. Livingston should be back for Friday's game against the Grizzlies.

Livingston posted a solid line in his start Friday against the Nuggets, contributing 12 points, four rebounds, and eight assists in 36 minutes of action.

Although he had a solid performance, Livingston doesn't hold much value in season-long leagues because he isn't getting enough playing time to contribute. Stephen Curry (rest) and Klay Thompson (rest) took a short breather Friday, and they'll return to court soon, rendering Barbosa unworthy of a roster spot in fantasy.

Livingston will get the start at point guard Friday, the San Francisco Chronicle's Rusty Simmons reports.

Stephen Curry, along with Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala and Andrew Bogut, will be given the night off Friday, making Livingston a strong play in daily leagues. Look for Curry to return to the starting lineup Saturday.
