It appears Fournier is the positive
Not sure how you can be certain of that.
Of course I can't be certain. It just seems logical. I could be missing something. Those are the only players I saw on the injury reports (https://www.espn.com/nba/injuries
) with a current protocal designation. Fournier and 3 others. There was 1 positive test during that time period (March 31-April 7) as mentioned in the press release. There is only 1 player I see that joined the protocols during that time period (Fournier).
KZ Okpala joined protocols by March 23
Caulie Stein entered at least by March 18
Paul Watson was in protocols at least by March 26
I can't be 100%, because there could be a piece of information I'm missing, but I would certainly bet on Fournier being that 1 positive.
I get what you're saying. Since those other 3 players were already in protocol, that means they obviously were in quarantine, so they wouldn't have been a "new" case. If they were in quarantine, they either had COVID already or they didn't have it but still in quarantine- - if they didn't have it and were in quarantine, they would not be able to get it. And if they already had it, then it wouldn't be a new case - the report says 1 new case.
So yeah, it seems like the 1 new case is probably Fournier. Unless either a) 1 of those 3 other guys is the "new case" and they just didn't know until now that the guy had it, like it wasn't reported yet or known yet to the media...or 1 of those 3 other guys was in quarantine but still got it.
I mean, my fiancee's nephew is technically in quarantine right now because a kid in his grade at school just tested positive. But it's not like he is just locked in his bedroom 24/7, he's out and about, playing around the house, playing outside, he just isn't going anywhere in public. So technically even though he's in quarantine I could somehow get it and then give it to him..
