Livingston, who guarded the likes of LeBron James and Kevin Durant in his lone season in Brooklyn, got off to a slow start in Golden State because of a toe injury sustained late last season with the Nets, resulting in offseason surgery and a missed training camp. He revealed for the first time Thursday how his broken toe was never diagnosed, and how he played in the postseason on the strength of a cortisone injection. “I don’t want to say I was misdiagnosed, but they couldn’t really figure out the issue. They did all these MRIs and X-rays and it was still hurt,” said Livingston, who broke his toe in the 77th game of last season and subsequently played 326 playoff minutes. New York Daily News

Livingston’s broken toe healed after it was placed in a cast, but he still required surgery after signing with Golden State. “They found out there was a lot of scar tissue because once I broke it, I continued to play on it in the playoffs,” Livingston said. “Basically, I just shot it up with cortisone and went out there and played on it.” New York Daily News

Jerry West on Shaun Livingston: “Honestly, I think we got one of the best offseason acquisitions there was in Shaun Livingston. He’s a terrific player. He’s going to play all over the place, he can defend, he has an incredible mind to play the game. He’s still young. People say he doesn’t shoot the ball well, but he shot better than 80 percent from the free-throw line. … They started winning in Brooklyn when they started playing him last year. We really think he’s going to be a tremendous addition for us. … I saw USA Today said we have the best backcourt, and I truly believe that. I think we’ve really enhanced it by bringing (Livingston) on board. … I’ve had two or three people call me personally and say they wanted him. … He’s our best playmaker. When you watch him, he’s pretty to watch. He’s such a great ball-handler, with his size, he will help everyone.” San Francisco Chronicle

Warriors reserve guard Shaun Livingston has said he’s ahead of schedule with his recovery from offseason toe surgery, but coach Steve Kerr still expects him to miss the start of the season. That’s because Livingston, who remains in a walking boot, will need time to get back into game shape after a lengthy time away from the court, according to Kerr. The 29-year-old originally sprained his right big toe in April and played through it in the playoffs. “That was back in May, and (he) has not really been running on the floor since,” Kerr told KNBR on Thursday. “So he’s doing much better. The toe is healed. But he needs a few weeks on the court running and getting his conditioning and his strength and his timing before he’s really ready to get into a game. So I anticipate he’s going to miss a couple of weeks of the regular season, but we’ll see how it goes.” Contra Costa Times
