Shaun Livingston G BKN 4 Days
Shaun Livingston started again on Wednesday and scored just two points, but also had five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 23 minutes.
He hit just 1-of-2 shots, while Marcus Thornton came off the bench for 20 points and four 3-pointers. Livingston continues to cling to fantasy value, but if Thornton ever gets the starting job in his place, Livingston should be dropped.

Shaun Livingston hit 7-of-11 shots for 14 points, three rebounds, zero assists and two steals in Saturday's win over the Bucks.
Livingston could play point guard on Monday after Deron Williams apparently banged up his right wrist tonight. Livingston played pretty well despite a big game from Marcus Thornton (25 points), but hasn't really been reliabel enough to use in most fantasy leagues since suffering a tail bone injury recently. However, if Williams is out on Monday, Livingston could be a sneaky play.

Shaun Livingston returned from a tailbone injury and played just 12 minutes on Wednesday, missing all four of hi shots and failing to score.
Marcus Thornton finally made his Nets debut tonight and played 27 minutes for nine points. It's far from a lock to happen, but we expect Thornton to cut into Livingston's minutes, while potentially even stealing his job at some point. For now Livingston is still the starter, but given how bad the Nets were tonight and what a cluster the box score was, Livingston's strong run that took place earlier this season is probably over.

Shaun Livingston (tailbone) will return to the Nets' starting lineup on Wednesday.
He sat out Sunday's game which shifted Andrei Kirilenko into the starting lineup with Joe Johnson at SG, but Jason Kidd seems content sticking with his usual backcourt of Livingston and Deron Williams. Marcus Thornton (food poisoning) is also ready to play but neither Thornton nor Livingston are reliable fantasy options in their current roles.

Shaun Livingston (bruised tailbone) practiced on Tuesday and will be a game-time decision vs. the Blazers on Wednesday.
The injury doesn't sound serious but Livingston's already shaky value may have been ruined for good when the Nets acquired Marcus Thornton to help out in the backcourt. Over his past four games, Livingston is averaging 6.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists, with zero 3-pointers or steals to his credit.

Shaun Livingston (tailbone) will not play against the Lakers on Sunday night.
He bruised his tailbone in Oakland last night and said there was a good chance he will not play. Livingston is likely just day-to-day with this issue, but this problem combined with Marcus Thornton's arrival might be too much for his fantasy owners to keep him on rosters. If there's a free agent worth grabbing, it makes sense to swap him out for Livingston.

Shaun Livingston (bruised tailbone) is unsure if he will be available to play in Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.
Livingston suffered a bruised tailbone on Saturday and did not return to the game. When asked if he would be available to play Sunday, his tone was not very optimistic. If he's unable to suit up, it's possible that Marcus Thornton will get some additional minutes, but most of the burden should fall on the shoulders of Joe Johnson. Stay tuned, as we will have official confirmation on Livingston's status closer to the tip.

Shaun Livingston suffered a bruised tailbone on Saturday and will not return.
X-rays were negative and this seems more like a day-to-day issue. Livingston has played extremely well this season and it's hard to imagine the Nets using Marcus Thornton too much unless they need 3-pointers in a comeback. His status is up in the air for Sunday vs. the Lakers.

Shaun Livingston played 40 minutes against the Jazz during a 105-99 win on Wednesday with nine points, five boards, seven assists and one block.
He could be losing his starting job to newly-acquired Marcus Thornton, but it's hard to imagine coach Jason Kidd bumping Livingston after his tremendous output in 2014. His owners can probably expect a small dip, but he's not going to have his value crushed like Steve Blake did tonight.
