 NBA Official Courtney Kirkland has been removed from the league’s officiating rotation for one week and Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livingston has been suspended one game without pay for their roles in an on-court altercation, it was announced Monday by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.
 
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.
Kirkland’s suspension will begin tonight and run through Sunday, Dec. 10.  He will be eligible to return to game action on Monday, Dec. 11.
Livingston served his suspension Monday when the Warriors played the New Orleans Pelicans at Smoothie King Center.
