Warriors guard Shaun Livingston is expected to be out six to eight weeks after having arthroscopic surgery on the big toe of his right foot.
Livingston was signed to a three-year contract worth about $16 million in July. The team says he was diagnosed with a sprained right big toe at the time and his foot was placed in a cast. The Warriors say Livingston, expected to be an upgrade at backup point guard after playing for Brooklyn last season, was re-evaluated last week and it was determined surgery was needed.
The Warriors begin training camp Sept. 29 and open the regular season at Sacramento on Oct. 29.

NASCAR added a rule barring its drivers from approaching the track or moving cars after accidents, less than a week after Kevin Ward Jr. was struck and killed by Tony Stewart's sprint car during a dirt-track race in upstate New York. If a car is involved in an accident and can no longer keep going -- and no extenuating circumstances exist -- the driver should not exit the car until told to do so. Last Saturday, Stewart clipped Ward's car, sending it spinning, Ward left the car during a caution period, walked on the track and was hit by Stewart. Brett Frood of Stewart-Haas Racing said Stewart, who opted not to race at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday, is "not ready to get in the race car and will take it week by week."
