Referee'I ejected Shaun Livingston for making physical contact

Livingston will be suspended for one game - Monday's game in New Orleans where he was scheduled to rest anyway - while Kirkland will be suspended a week without pay.

The NBA announced Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livingston and referee Courtney Kirkland are suspended after an on-court altercation.

Shams Charania of The Vertical reported the news Monday, noting Kirkland will also be "removed" for a week.

The incident occurred with 6:24 remaining in the second quarter of the Warriors' 123-95 victory in Miami, when Livingston and Kirkland bumped heads and Livingston was ejected from the game. Asked for his explanation of what occurred, Kirkland said, "The reason that Shaun Livingston was ejected was for making physical contact with me". Livingston was ejected for just the second time in his 11-year National Basketball Association career. Livingston's only other ejection came in Game 4 of the 2016 Western Conference semifinals in Portland, after receiving his second technical foul for complaining to referee Scott Foster. Steve Kerr said on Sunday that Livingston would be rested on Monday night, so it's quite unusual to see him hit with the questionable tag with a non-injury issue.
