Coach Steve Kerr says Warriors guard Shaun Livingston (toe) is 'highly doubtful' for the season opener.

Livingston underwent arthroscopic surgery on his big toe in mid-August and was expected to miss up to two months. He still isn't ready to go and thus, will miss next week's season opener against Sacramento. The 29-year-old veteran is expected to backup both shooting guard Klay Thompson and point guard Stephen Curry this year.

Brandon Rush is out indefinitely after an MRI exam revealed a sacral stress reaction.

Rush has been battling a back issue for the past few days, but attempted to play through it. Now he is looking at being out of action for at least the next couple of weeks, but it could end up being even longer. He's slated for a backup role this year and has seen time at both shooting guard and small forward this preseason.

Andre Bogut (illness) will not play on Tuesday.

The solid source of blocks and rebounds is out on Tuesday with a stomach bug. Consider Bogut day-to-day for now, but he should be ready to go for the start of the season.

Steve Kerr said he doesn't imagine Brandon Rush will be ready for the season opener.

Rush is nothing more than a bench player at this point in his career whose main fantasy value comes from his ability to hit the three. Rush likely won't be drafted in standard leagues but you can read more about his projection in the Fantasy Alarm NBA Draft Guide.

Festus Ezeli (right knee/elbow) is expected to play on Tuesday.

Good for Ezeli, as this will be the first time he has played in a game in almost a year and a half because of a significant knee injury that led to surgery. However, Ezeli has minimal fantasy value as he averaged a meager 2.8 points, four rebounds, and 0.9 blocks per game in 78 games in 2012-2013.

Brandon Rush (lower back spasms) will not play Tuesday and will be reevaluated in a week.

The injury is considered minor, but with the regular season rapidly approaching, the Warriors would probably like to just keep playing it safe. Keep an eye on his practice schedule this week and see if he can get back on the court sooner than later.

Harrison Barnes will start over Andre Iguodala again on Tuesday.

Barnes has earned his chance to play over Iguodala with his performances in the preseason thus far. He's shot at least 57 percent from the field in four of his last five games, averaging 9.8 points, 3.0 boards, 1.2 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 triples in that span. We know it's the preseason but something to be said for being younger and hungrier than a veteran like Iguodala. Fantasy owners in standard leagues should be able to do better.

Festus Ezeli (shin) is a gametime decision Tuesday night vs the Clippers.

Ezeli missed a major part of last season with knee surgery and has now missed a significant amount of time in training camp with swelling in his shin. He did return to practice a week ago, but hasn't seen any game action at all yet. Continue to monitor his health moving forward as he could be a bit of a headaches, at least early on in the season.

Warriors have signed guard Sean Kilpatrick.

The undrafted rookie out Cincinnati is a versatile player that can play both point and shooting guard. He played with the 76ers summer league team, but was unable to secure a contract with them. Kilpatrick is not worth drafting in dynasty leagues because he's unlikely to begin the season on the active roster for the Warriors.

Marreese Speights returned to the Warriors after missing one preseason game for personal reasons.

No specific reason were given fo the absence, hence the term "personal," but everything seem s to be okay right now. Everything should be just fine moving forward.
