Is there anyone else from other teams on Health and Safety Protocols right now? Or is it just Fournier?


There are other players that I see, but they have all been out for a while

Caulie Stein has missed 10 games already

KZ Okpala has missed 9 games

Paul Watson (Raptors) has missed 7 games


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..

Pretty much what I expected when he got put back in the protocol. I said it was going to miss two to three weeks and a certain poster said i didn't know what I was talking about.

If things go "right", we'll have Fournier for the last 15 games of the season. Maybe last 10 with no minutes restrictions? Then hopefully no one else gets injured (haha).

May as well do that. Rest: Walker, Smart and Rob Williams. So our top 6 would be out then.
Let's see if some guys can rise up to the occasion.

Start: Pritchard/Langford/Nesmith/G.Williams/Thompson + Bench: Waters/Edwards/Ojeleye/Wagner/Kornet (and Fall)

Yes, and sit Marcus and Kemba too, or severely limit their minutes. Let Denver win by 50 instead of by 25.

oh boy, possibly another Carsen Edwards opportunity incoming.
when he becomes the first player in NBA history under 6' to start at SF today.

because you know, and I know, we could be missing e'rybody and Brad's not starting Nesmith
(Nesmith should never have slapped him in front of the team and called him a 'little bitch')

So Tatum is hung over from getting a little too wild and crazy celebrating his 53 point game on Friday night? Half kidding..

:nonono: If Fournier walks after just playing a dozen games there’s going to be a lot of frustration, especially after Ainge said he didn’t want to use the tpe ion a rental.

Yeah well it's not like it's anyone's fault that Fournier got COVID. 4 of the 15 states in the US with rising COVID cases are in New England, including Mass. We've just got bad luck this year..

Oh man, bummer. Let's hope he plays. But obviously Stevens is usually very conservative with Rob so maybe he sits.

We sure could use him though to pair him up with Thompson when going against LA's tandem in the middle of Drummond/Harrell.

Not coach's call. Never has been. Stevens follows what the medical staff tells him.

Harrell backs up Drummond. They've never played together.

I'd like Rob to sit and Tacko to get at least 12 minutes tonight.

Thank you.

1) Ok well then the medical staff is usually very conservative with Rob

2) Yeah, no kidding. I know that harrell backs up Drummond. Where did I ever say otherwise? I said they are LA's "tandem in the middle" ... a player who plays "in the middle" means center, that's common knowledge. Teams play only 1 center at a time, which is also common knowledge. By tandem I meant that is their center combo...the 2 they rotate at center.

Just like when I said we could sure use Rob to pair him up with Thompson. I didn't mean play the 2 of them together. That would be a terrible idea. I meant that is our center duo, our rotation, so 1 plays at a time and they rotate.

Guess I'll have to make it painfully obvious what I mean in the future so people don't try to pick apart my posts, lol.
