Livingston underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right big toe in August. At the time, he was expected to miss six to eight weeks.

In July, Livingston signed a three-year, $16 million contract with the Warriors. He spent last season with the Brooklyn Nets, averaging 8.3 points and 3.2 assists and starting 54 games. 

The 29-year-old is expected to help backup both point guard Stephen Curry and shooting guard Klay Thompson.

Livingston is a former No. 4 pick by the Clippers and has also played for the Heat, Thunder, Wizards, Bobcats, Bucks and Cavaliers

Golden State opens the season on Oct. 29 against the Kings in Sacramento.
