Shaun Livingston will come off the Nets' bench on Saturday, as Jason Kidd decided to tweak his starting lineup.
Tyshawn Taylor earns the nod at PG and Livingston should be taken out of fantasy lineups if possible. He's coming off a scoreless, zero-assist game on Friday and Kidd's faith in him as a viable starting PG seems to have been severely shaken.

Shaun Livingston put up zeroes across the board in the Nets' 114-95 loss to the Rockets on Friday.
Livingston played 12 minutes tonight and was benched like most of his starting teammates for the beginning of the second half. After a strong start his stock has fallen, and though it seems unlikely Tyshawn Taylor may have earned a timeshare after posting 16 points and 12 assists in garbage time tonight. If you added Livingston over the short-term while Deron Williams is out, feel free to drop him for a hot free agent.

Shaun Livingston's head injury didn't seem to bother him on Tuesday with five points, six boards, seven assists, two steals and two turnovers in 29 minutes.
He still hasn't taken a single attempt from 3-point land, so Dwight Howard actually has more attempts from him at that range. Livingston has been able to put up enough steals and assists to be worth a look as a stop-gap option while Deron Williams recovers from his ankle injury.

Shaun Livingston (head) is probable to face the Raptors on Tuesday.
This is rare good news for the Nets. They are likely going to be without Deron Williams, so Livingston should have another start on the way. In his four starts, he's averaged 9.8 points, 3.0 boards, 3.5 assists and 1.3 steals in 30.0 minutes.

Shaun Livingston suffered a head injury on Sunday and will be re-evaluated on Monday.
He banged his head in the fourth quarter and there has been no talk of a concussion yet, but that could change soon. If Livingston misses Tuesday's game against the Raptors, the Nets might have to go with Tyshawn Taylor to get the start. Things aren't looking good in Brooklyn these days.

Shaun Livingston had a dreadful night in Friday's blowout loss to the Wolves, scoring just one point with an 0-for-7 mark from the field, three rebounds, one steal and zero assists in 24 minutes.
If there is any consolation it's that his teammates sucked, so it's not like this is entirely on him, and it's also worth pointing out that the Nets are in a rough spot in terms of travel right now. That's a lot of excuses for a guy that has been a hot short-term pickup while Deron Williams is out, but as long as that is the case he should be owned in standard formats.

Shaun Livingston hit just 1-of-5 shots for two points in 26 minutes on Wednesday, but also had seven rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block.
Deron Williams started, aggravated an ankle injury and then shut it down for the night, meaning that he's day-to-day again, as usual. And as long as that's the case, Livingston is worth owning in all formats, and has been a very cheap and effective point guard in daily leagues.

Shaun Livingston scored 23 points on 8-of-14 shooting in the Nets' 108-98 loss to the Blazers on Monday.
Livingston hit all seven of his free throw attempts and added two boards, two assists and a steal in his 29 minutes, but Jason Kidd decided to keep him off the floor during winning time while guys like Jason Terry (2-of-7 FGs) and Joe Johnson (4-of-12 FGs) stunk up the joint. Livingston looked great and showed excellent explosion on a blowby of Damian Lillard that ended in a Robin Lopez poster.

Shaun Livingston got his first start of the season on Saturday and had 11 points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 33 minutes vs. the Clippers.
He shot 4-of-14 from the field and it's not really fair to judge him based on tonight's line. Chris Paul is one of the best point-guard defenders in the NBA and Livingston had some trouble getting to the basket. Although, Livingston was fairly solid on defense. If you picked him up for his short-term value, tonight's performance shouldn't dissuade you from keeping him on your roster.

Shaun Livingston scored a season-high 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting with three rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in 37 minutes with Deron Williams leaving Friday's game early due to an ankle injury.
It's the same ankle that Williams has dealt with for a while and while he's being optimistic about it there is at least a small window for Livingston to produce. The backup PG has played reasonably well this season and he's well worth a shorter-term, speculative add right now.
