Evan Fournier To Make Celtics Debut Monday Night Against Pelicans

Fournier was acquired last week in deal before the trade deadline


Evan Fournier is set for his first game in a Celtics uniform.

Acquired last Thursday ahead of the NBA trade deadline, Fournier will suit up Monday night when Boston hosts the New Orleans Pelicans at TD Garden, according to the team. Fournier sat out Friday’s win over the Milwaukee Bucks and Saturday’s victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder due to COVID-19 protocols.

Unfortunately for Boston, Jaylen Brown will not be in the lineup Monday night. The All-Star wing is dealing with a hip injury.

Here’s the full Celtics injury report:

Boston is looking to win its third game in a row.

Additionally, Monday’s game will mark the first time the Celtics have played in front of fans at TD Garden in over a year. It remains to be seen whether Fournier will start for the Celtics or come off the bench.
