I have searched everyday for the last month to see how Shaun Livingston's injury rehab is coming along but to no avail. I just ran into a LA Daily NEWS article posted today about 12am (7 hrs ago) with a snippet of shaun livingston ETA. I'm really not sure how accurate or reliable this guy is but this has been the only news on Shaun I was able to find since the LA TIMES article. If this is true, it looks like Shaun will be back before EB but I still stand behind sitting him out the entire season.

Clippers sign Patterson to help replace injured Brand

The Clippers signed self-proclaimed "Kobe Stopper" Ruben Patterson on Wednesday.

Patterson, 32, a small forward, has played nine NBA seasons and had his best statistical season last year with the Milwaukee Bucks, averaging career highs with 14.7points and 5.4 rebounds.

Despite his scoring last season, Patterson is known for his defense and energy. He once referred to himself as a "Kobe Stopper," in reference to Kobe Bryant, but has since shied away from the nickname.

This will be Patterson's fifth team. He was selected by the Lakers with the 31st overall pick in the 1998 NBA draft.

The Clippers will start the season without two key players, Elton Brand and Shaun Livingston. Brand ruptured an Achilles tendon earlier this month, had surgery and is in a cast. No specific timetable has been released on when he'll be back.

Livingston still is recovering from multiple ligament tears in his left knee and likely won't be able to play until at least January.
