Warriors point guard Shaun Livingston has been ruled out of Wednesday night’s game against the Pelicans at Oracle Arena with right foot soreness. It is the third straight game Golden State will be without Livingston, who has dealt with soreness in his right foot since Golden State’s preseason finale Oct. 12 against the Lakers in San Jose. His absence has freed up more time for Quinn Cook, Andre Iguodala, Alfonzo McKinnie and even rookie Jacob Evans.

During the final preseason game in San Jose, Shaun Livingston played in some old Hyperdunks. He regrets that shoe choice. After the game, the outside part of his right foot felt sore. More than two weeks later, it still feels sore. So Livingston has temporarily shut it down. He missed the final two games on this road trip and, pregame, told The Athletic that he’s likely to miss a few more and may go for an MRI in the coming days. It’s precautionary, Livingston said, a minor issue he wants to get resolved now so it doesn’t become a major one at an inopportune time.

The Golden State Warriors hope to get injured reserves Shaun Livingston and Matt Barnes back from injuries for the second round of the playoffs after having more than a week off between series. The Warriors said Saturday that Barnes has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday night’s Game 1. Livingston remains questionable but is hopeful that he will be ready to return. Star forward Kevin Durant is expected to be a full go after missing two games and being limited to 20 minutes in Game 4 of the previous round because of a strained left calf.

Defense remains an issue for Kanter but his skillset — top-level rebounding and inside scoring — is such that he can help a playoff team off the bench. The Knicks are actively trying to deal the 26-year-old international, who is coping with a very public and emotionally taxing battle with the Turkish government. Kanter has an $18 million expiring contract that could be a vehicle to acquiring an asset (draft pick, young player), which is the Knicks’ preference. However, the market has not been robust. There had been preliminary discussions involving the Knicks taking back Jabari Parker, but there needed to be a third team to take Kanter.
It was a show before the show as approximately 70-80 NBA professionals — front-office personnel, scouts, agents, photographers, videographers and writers — camped tightly along the sideline and baseline to watch DeMarcus Cousins warm up. When Cousins emerged from the locker room to take the court and saw the massive crowd awaiting his arrival, he shook his head. “That [expletive] was crazy,” Cousins told Yahoo Sports an hour before making his season debut Friday against the Los Angeles Clippers after being sidelined for nearly a year because of a torn left Achilles tendon. “I’ve been in the NBA for how many years? It’s never been like that for me before.”
