Quarkonium production has been advertised as a tool to probe the gluon TMDs. Among the eight gluon TMDs, gluon Sivers function has been receiving paramount of interest both theoretically and experimentally. We study the single-spin asymmetry (SSA) in proton-proton collision process in $J/\psi$ production by employing the generalized parton model (GPM), and compare SSA with PHENIX data. We discuss how the singularities coming from color octet states can be cured in a simple way, which leads to finite cross section in the low-$p_T$ region.
