    The Pelicans have agreed to a two-year deal with Wenyen Gabriel, per ESPN's Andrew Lopez.

    Gabriel showed pretty well in the bubble with the Blazers last season, emerging as a starter when the team was racked with injuries. It's a decent upside gamble for the Pelicans, especially at the veteran's minimum. The Pels do have a number of PFs on the roster already so Gabriel will have to earn whatever minutes he gets next season.

    Updating an earlier blurb, Wenyen Gabriel has now been ruled out of Saturday's game.

    Gabriel apparently is not well enough to give it a go, so the Blazers will have to make do with a different eight-man rotation tonight.

    The Blazers are dealing with a handful of injuries, but while Gabriel is available to play, he may not necessarily utilized vs. the Lakers.

    Wenyen Gabriel started for the Blazers on Tuesday and chipped in four points on perfect 2-for-2 shooting, adding three rebounds and three assists in 16 minutes on the floor.

    Gabriel was not much to look at tonight, but the Blazers are currently without Zach Collins who's dealing with left ankle inflammation. Gabriel will see minutes in the mid-teens but won't be a fantasy factor in playoff leagues.

    Wenyen Gabriel will be in the starting lineup for Game 1 in place of Zach Collins (left ankle inflammation) on Tuesday evening.

    Gabriel started the second half of the Blazers' win over the Grizzlies on Saturday after Collins departed with the ankle injury. He had already been reported to be unable to go on Tuesday, so it's only natural that Gabriel will pick up the start in Collins' stead. Gabriel only had three points (1-of-3 FG), one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in nine minutes on Saturday. Most of the playing time will go to other players with Collins sidelined. Look for Hassan Whiteside to inherit a good chunk of the minutes that Collins usually sees.

    Wenyen Gabriel will replace Zach Collins (ankle) in the starting lineup for Game 1 vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

    Gabriel started the second half for the Blazers during their victory over the Grizzlies after Collins was unable to continue. Despite starting, he played only nine minutes, with Gary Trent Jr. picking up the bulk of the extra playing time. Against the size of the Lakers, Hassan Whiteside could also see additional run.

    Zach Collins (left ankle inflammation) has been ruled out of Tuesday's Game 1 against the Lakers.

    Collins suffered the injury during Saturday's win over the Grizzlies and was unable to return to the court. There has been no word on whether this will cause him to miss multiple games. In his absence, Wenyen Gabriel will shift into the starting lineup.

    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.
