The Celtics will be without Evan Fournier on their three-game mini road-trip out west that tips off Sunday against the Denver Nuggets.
The veteran guard was placed in the league's health and safety protocol on Tuesday and coach Brad Stevens gave an update prior to the Celtics' win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Fournier has missed the last three straight outings.

While it's still unknown if Fournier has tested positive for COVID-19 or not, but he did post an update on social media about hopefully returning sooner rather than later.
Just want to take a moment to thank you all for the love and support over the last few days.— Evan Fournier (@EvanFourmizz) April 8, 2021
I can't wait to get back on the court and help my team win. ☘️
