As the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Toronto Raptors in Canada yesterday, you might have wondered why reserve forward Samardo Samuels didn't play in the game.
Well as we learn from the Cleveland.com, Samardo didn't play because he lost his passport:
The reserve center did not accompany the club to Toronto for Wednesday's game against the Raptors because he was unable to get new travel documentation processed in time. He lost his Jamaican passport several weeks ago and he also had complications with his work visa.
"I'm going to chalk it up to youth and inexperience," head coach Byron Scott said. "Hopefully he learned his lesson and it never happens again."
Thankfully for Samardo, I don't think his contributions would have matter much in the 15-point blowout.
