Following being acquired at the trade deadline, Fournier reportedly was in Boston on Friday to take his physical and was expected to join the Celtics on Monday at the latest, but will now have to wait to play with his new teammates. It's unclear if Fournier tested positive for the coronavirus or it's simply contact tracing, but he'll have to quarantine and test negative for at least seven days before making a return.
