The Golden State Warriors pulled off a great signing this summer when the grabbed former Brooklyn Nets guard Shaun Livingston to add to their roster depth, but they’re going to have to wait before they reap the benefits of the signing.
Livingston will be out for the next 6-8 weeks following foot surgery, as the veteran had arthroscopic surgery on his right foot big toe and will be out for the foreseeable future.
Marc J. Spears from Yahoo! Sports had the report, and if true it would mean that at the maximum the Dubs can expect to see Livingston back in the middle of October.

The Dubs don’t tip off their season until the end of October, meaning even if Livingston needs to maximum amount of time to heal, he’s going to be back before the start of the regular season. Golden State likely won’t throw him right back into the thick of things, but the surgery was completed at the right time, and Livingston is poised to start the season on time, if that’s what he feels like he can do.
