Shaun Livingston underwent arthroscopic surgery on his big toe and will be sidelined six to eight weeks.
This would put Livingston out of action until early-to-mid October which would still allow him to begin the season with the Warriors. If he has any type of setback, he could be out longer, but for now, count on him to be on the opening day roster for Golden State. Livingston started 54 games and averaged 8.3 PPG for Brooklyn last season.ANALYST: David Kerr
Nationals placed Stephen Strasburg on the 15-day disabled list with neck tightness.
Something had to be wrong with Strasburg, given his season-long struggles. He has not shown his usual control with his off-speed pitches and needs to get healthy to return to his expected dominant self, and the DL trip is a start in that direction. There is no hint that the neck issue has been the cause of his problems this season, but at least he gets to take some time off to be examined and hopefully set on track to pitch well again.

Grizzlies are exploring signing center Greg Oden.
Oden, the former first overall draft pick in the 2007 draft, last played for the Heat in 2014. Knee injuries have interrupted his career, limiting him to two seasons with Portland and the aforementioned time with Miami. He may decide to attend the upcoming Grizzly free agent camp in June, but nothing is in concrete yet. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
