In Thursday's loss to the Pacers, Wenyen Gabriel came off the bench for 20 minutes and was able to register four blocked shots.
Gabriel showed great energy off the bench on Thursday as he finished with six points (2-of-4 FG, 0-of-1 3PM, 2-of-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist, four blocks and one turnover. It is unlikely that he sees enough time to produce any sort of fantasy value once the games count for real but the 23-year-old might could have specialist appeal in future seasons.

Wenyen Gabriel was a fantasy non-factor in 2019-20, posting top-430 value.
Gabriel did make his NBA debut this year and had a career-high 12 points in February but doesn't look like he'll be a rotation consideration in the near future. He was able to produce 0.2 blocks, 0.4 steals and 0.2 threes in 7.5 mpg but that could be more noise than signs of simmering fantasy appeal.

Wenyen Gabriel scored a career-high 12 points vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday, shooting 5-of-7 from the floor and adding two boards and a triple in 14 minutes off the bench.
Gabriel has played in six of the last seven games for the Blazers. The rookie is taking advantage of multiple frontcourt injuries, but he has a chance to carve out a regular role in case the team falls out of the playoff race and turns to some of the youth.

Wenyen Gabriel drew the spot start for Carmelo Anthony (personal) on Friday and was not much of a factor in his 13 minutes on the floor, going 0-for-3 from the field to finish the game with zero points, one rebound, one assist and one block.
Gabriel was a surprise choice and is not likely going to see much rotation time after this stinker. Leave him on the wire.

The Kings have recalled Wenyen Gabriel from Stockton of the G League.
Gabriel last played in the NBA on November 22, scoring five points and blocking a shot in eight minutes. He's mostly depth at this point.

Wenyen Gabriel made his NBA debut on Wednesday, registering one point and a rebound in two minutes of action.
Congratulations to Gabriel, but it would take a number of injuries to get him close to fantasy value in any format.

Wenyen Gabriel has made the roster for the Kings and has been given a regular NBA contract.
Gabriel was on a two-way deal last season but the Kings clearly like his potential. He is unlikely to be fantasy relevant this season.

Wenyen Gabriel led the Kings with 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting with four triples, eight rebounds, a steal and four blocks in Thursday's loss to the Clippers.
Gabriel has been playing exceptionally well for the Kings and has been getting it done on both ends of the floor. The Kings are loaded with talent at the forward position but the way he's been playing has surely caught the eye of Sacramento's front office.

Wenyen Gabriel paced the Kings in their 81-77 win over the Warriors in Monday's California Classic tilt, posting 22 points, 12 rebounds, two threes and two steals in 26 minutes of work.
Gabriel, who did not appear in the NBA last season despite being on a two-way contract, shot 8-of-14 from the field but just 4-of-9 from the line while also committing six fouls in his time on the court. It's going to be a tough road to playing time given the way Sacramento has built up its frontcourt but Gabriel continues to look like someone worth developing.

The Kings are signing Wenyen Gabriel to a two-way contract.
Gabriel went undrafted after two years at Kentucky and impressed the Kings with his work in Summer League. He played in five games in Vegas, averaging 6.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.6 blocks per game in 16.4 minutes per night. A 6'9" forward, Gabriel doesn't figure to see much action for a team that's already filled with frontcourt types.
