NEW ORLEANS — The NBA has suspended Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livingston for one game and removed official Courtney Kirkland from the officiating rotation for a week because of an altercation during a game Sunday.

NBA executive vice president Kiki VanDeWeghe announced the suspensions Monday. He says Livingston will serve his suspension Monday night when the Warriors visit the New Orleans Pelicans.
