OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr has joined the team in China after flying separately because of a passport delay.

Team spokesman Raymond Ridder said in an email that Kerr arrived early Tuesday local time in Shenzhen, China. After a home preseason opener Saturday night, the Golden State charter plane departed Oakland on Sunday afternoon for two preseason games against Minnesota in China.

Kerr’s passport had been held up in a processing delay by no fault of his own.

ESPN first reported Kerr’s passport was among those delayed and he would be forced to travel on his own.
