The Warriors had no trouble with the Jazz on Saturday and cruised to an easy double-digit win as expected. But the team lost backup center Jermaine O’Neal in the process.
O’Neal went down early in the fourth quarter after slipping along the baseline, and had to be helped off the floor. It didn’t look good, and additional tests are scheduled for Sunday to assess the extent of the damage.
Jermaine O’Neal will have additional tests Sunday after being diagnosed with a sprained right knee and a strained right groin, per the team.

The 17-year veteran has been reliably serviceable for the Warriors this season, appearing in eight of the team’s 10 games and posting averages of 5.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, and a blocked shot in 17.3 minutes per contest.
