(CNN)Boston Celtics wing Evan Fournier has compared the long-term side effects of Covid-19 to a concussion, saying he has "been feeling really weird" weeks after contracting the virus.

Fournier was traded from the Orlando Magic to the Celtics in March, but admitted he has been struggling with focus and depth perception as he continues to recover from the virus.

"It's like I have a concussion," 28-year-old Fournier told reporters after the Celtics' 129-119 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday.

He said he was able to "feel like myself a little bit" during Sunday's game, but added that the period since his return to the court has been "painful. "

"It's just terrible timing," Fournier said about the impact of the virus.

"So it's kind of a golden opportunity for me to finally be with a great team, and the fact that I got Covid and now I'm feeling like this, it's heartbreaking to be honest. "
