Shaun Livingston out at least 6-8 weeks after toe surgery

Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livingston underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on the big toe of his right foot earlier this week and is expected to be out a minimum of six-to-eight weeks, the team announced today.

The procedure, a debridement (cleaning out of debris) in his right big toe, was performed on Wednesday, August 13, by Dr. Richard Ferkel at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute in Van Nuys, CA. As part of his rehabilitation from the surgery, Livingston will be in a splint for the first three weeks of his recovery.

Livingston, 28, signed with the Warriors as a free agent on July 11, 2014. At that time he was diagnosed with a sprained right big toe and his right foot was placed in a cast as part of treatment for the injury. During a re-evaluation last week, it was determined that the injury was still present.
