The on Saturday flew into Toronto as a team, with the exception of backup center Jermaine O'Neal.

O'Neal, 35, was unable to enter customs due to a passport matter, coach Mark Jackson said prior to Sunday's game against the Raptors.

Jackson during his pregame news conference told reporters he was unclear whether O'Neal's passport was lost or stolen or whether the veteran big man was facing another issue.

O'Neal, who played 68 games as a Raptor during the 2008-09 season, is expected to reconnect with the Warriors prior to Tuesday's game against the Pacers in Indianapolis.
