Orlando Magic guard Evan Fournier was the latest NBA star to dip his toes into the Call of Duty world, playing Warzone on a stream Tuesday with professional gamers Zed, Denz and Skyrroz of Paris Legion.

The group finished 18th in their first match, followed by a 31st-place finish battle royale quads before getting their act together for a victory in their third drop-in. 

If you're looking for a scouting report on Fournier's gameplay, let's just say he's the strong but silent type. The 27-year-old Frenchman was the quietest in the stream, letting his play do the talking. 

Fournier is one of several NBA players who have taken up Call of Duty during their off time because of the coronavirus pandemic. Slam has held multiple NBA Call of Duty tournaments, while Miami Heat center Meyers Leonard recently streamed for 24 hours to raise money for COVID-19 relief.
