A month later, Boston’s Evan Fournier playing through concussion-like symptoms after COVID-19

Almost a month after Boston Celtics forward Evan Fournier was diagnosed with COVID-19, he says he's playing through concussion-like symptoms lingering from having caught the virus.

"I've been feeling really weird, to be honest," Fournier said Sunday night after Boston's 129-119 loss against the Trail Blazers. "My plan was to stop talking about it so it might help me, but the thing is it's like I have a concussion. Right now, it's actually doing a little bit better, but at first, the bright lights were bothering my eyes and my vision was blurry.

"Everything was just going too fast for me. It's still the case. Some stuff is better, but at times, I'm really struggling to focus and my eyes keep struggling focusing on one thing. My depth perception is really bad right now. But I saw a specialist, and she gave me some exercises, and hopefully, it'll get better."
