This was a potted palm right?  S. minor don't like roots disturbed so did roots look ok?  The oldest frond may just be dying off.  If this was a bare root palm or a palm that was dug and thrown in a pot then that's a problem.

I think you're good if you didn't bother the roots a bunch.  Let it settle in.
