Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said guard Shaun Livingston is "highly doubtful" for the team's season opener.
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.
Golden State opens the season on Oct. 29 against the Kings in Sacramento.
