Shaun Livingston’s Knee Causing No Problems

The 6-7 guard sat out Sunday’s practice at AmericanAirlines Arena as a precaution, but should practice Monday.

”No swelling, just regular soreness that’s normal,” said Livingston, who was the fourth overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft. ”Everything is progressing.”

Livingston averaged 6.5 points in the two games and says getting off the ground might be his biggest challenge as he tries to regain strength in the knee.

”I don’t have the same explosive ability that I had before where I could get to the rim and finish over,” Livingston said. ”Jumping isn’t where it’s at for me right now. Layups will probably be the biggest work in progress.”
