The Warriors were supposed to make the two-hour flight from Indianapolis, Ind. to New York City on Monday night following their 102-100 win over the Indiana Pacers, but those plans have changed.
Sources confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area's Monte Poole and Kendra Andrews that the Warriors will stay in Indianapolis overnight because of mechanical issues with their plane.
The Warriors now are scheduled to leave Indianapolis at 10 a.m. ET and arrive in New York around 12 p.m. ET with tip-off against the New York Knicks scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.
The Athletic's Anthony Slater and Marcus Thompson II first reported news that the Warriors were stuck in Indianapolis overnight.
Slater reported that the Warriors tried to find another plane in Indianapolis but were unsuccessful in their search.
The Warriors' game against the Knicks is set up to be a historic night for the NBA as Steph Curry needs two 3-pointers to become the all-time leader in career makes, passing Ray Allen, who currently holds the record with 2,973.
Having travel issues in the middle of a back-to-back with games in different states isn't ideal, and it's unknown if the Warriors' late arrival time in New York might cause coach Steve Kerr to rest any veterans.
