OAKLAND — The Warriors are without their head coach to start the second round, but they will have their entire rotation back.
After battling various injuries in Round 1, Kevin Durant, Matt Barnes and Shaun Livingston are all officially available for Game 1 of Round 2 against the Jazz on Tuesday night.
Durant missed two games in the Blazers series after a calf twinge, but returned to close out the sweep. He practiced all week. Barnes is returning from a late-season foot sprain, practiced most of the week and was listed as probable heading into the night.
Livingston’s status was the most unknown. He suffered a hand contusion diving for a loose ball early in the Blazers series, missed the final three games and was limited this week, saying swelling was still affecting his catching, shooting and passing.
The Warriors listed Livingston as questionable and Mike Brown didn’t know his status 90 minutes before tip. But Livingston tested it pregame and will play, giving the Warriors a fully stocked lineup.
