It might not have been obvious as veteran shooting guard Evan Fournier was putting up his best game yet since returning from a lengthy stay in the NBA’s health and safety protocols for a positive, symptomatic case of COVID-19 that really knocked him on his posterior.
But, the former Orlando Magic wing is still feeling the effects of the virus behind the ongoing deadly pandemic in a big way Sunday night as he connected on a sizzling 8-of-10 shots from the field against the Portland Trail Blazers in the Celtics’ 129 – 119 loss to score 21 points and 5 rebounds.
But, much like teammate Jayson Tatum before him and many others around the league, the St. Maurice native has had to fight through lingering after-effects still impacting his game.
“[I’ve been] feeling really weird to be honest,” he explained to the press after the loss to the Blazers.
