TORONTO – Jermaine O'Neal's misplaced passport has left the Golden State Warriors one man short Sunday against the Toronto Raptors.
O'Neal was unable to travel with his teammates to Canada on Saturday because his passport was either lost or stolen, Warriors coach Mark Jackson said.
After beating the Knicks in New York on Friday night, Golden State flew north of the border on Saturday. Jackson said O'Neal's missing passport was discovered late Saturday afternoon, and the team didn't have enough time to find a solution.
Toronto is the fourth stop on Golden State's current six-game road trip. O'Neal will rejoin the Warriors when they visit Indiana on Tuesday.
O'Neal played 41 games for Toronto in the 2008-09 season before being traded to Miami, so he's no stranger to taking his passport on road trips.
