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.

I’ve seen every narrative you could throw. When it comes to preparing myself for them, I’ve looked in the mirror and I’ve put myself in the situation before [the media] could.”
