Shaun Livingston is not allowed to play tonight in New Orleans.

The NBA suspended Livingston one game without pay for his on-court altercation with referee Courtney Kirkland on Sunday.

Kirkland received a one-week suspension and is not eligible to return to the league's rotation until Dec. 11.

From the NBA:
 
The incident, which began when Livingston aggressively approached Kirkland while protesting a non-call, occurred with 6:24 remaining in the second quarter of the Warriors’ 123-95 win over the Miami Heat on Sunday, Dec. 3 at AmericanAirlines Arena. 

As part of the incident, Livingston and Kirkland bumped heads, and Livingston was assessed a technical foul and ejected for making contact with a game official.  Upon league office review, it was determined that Kirkland moved toward Livingston and shared responsibility for the contact that occurred.

Before his ejection, Livingston was scheduled to rest against the Pelicans.

Earlier on Monday, he was officially listed as questionable.
