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.

Irving apologized to James for the way things ended between them in Cleveland, and the All-Star guard reportedly “has had discussions” about joining the Lakers this summer. A James-Irving reunion might seem far-fetched, but the two stars hung out together Thursday in Los Angeles, and then James liked a photoshopped picture of Irving in a Lakers jersey.

Even though the Lakers talk is the hot rumor, ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan poured some cold water on it Friday on the latest Hoop Collective podcast. “I did a little digging around and my feeling is very strongly that while LeBron and Kyrie have kissed and made up, that Kyrie is not going there,” she said. “He’s just not. I just don’t believe it. And I think people close to him just don’t believe it either.”
No LeBron hammer dunks in May. No LeBron chase-down blocks in June. No LeBron mini-dramas. No winding, reflective postgame sermons. No leviathan for upstarts to slay. “It’s just weird,” the Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green said. “More as a basketball fan than anything: ‘Damn, Bron not there.’ It’s super weird. You always relish the opportunity to play against a talent like that.”
Mike D’Antoni said negotiations are taking place that he is hopeful will keep him in Houston beyond next season. D’Antoni has one year left on his Rockets deal. “We’ve been in contract discussions and we still are about the extension,” D’Antoni said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. “I think I can go two or three more years at the level I want to be at and everything will play out in the near future.”

D’Antoni said a lot of work has already been done toward completing a contract extension. “It’s a good ways (into it). I don’t do it. That’s my agent. He takes care of that stuff. They’ve been discussing it for a long time now. It just hasn’t been a couple weeks. It’s been awhile that they’ve been talking. So they’ll figure it out. “Everybody likes security. It’s just a matter of okay this is the direction the organization wants to go. I want to be a part of it. It’s just normal business and we just got to take care of business.”
