F - LAL
Wenyen Gabriel recorded 16 points (6-7 FG, 1-1 3PT, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, and two blocks in 25 minutes off the bench in Friday's win over the Thunder.
Gabriel scored 16 points en route to a Lakers win while also receiving a standard NBA contract after his initial two-way contract with the Lakers on March 1. If the Lakers remain so short-handed, the 25-year-old should continue to see increased opportunities Sunday at Denver.
Per Jovan Buha, Wenyen Gabriel is listed as questionable Thursday versus the Jazz.
With LeBron James already ruled out Thursday, Stanley Johnson, Carmelo Anthony, and Malik Monk should all see expanded roles especially if Wenyen Gabriel is inactive. Monk should be the most trusted scoring option as he has scored 12 or more points in five consecutive games. Anthony and Johnson are riskier plays because of their lower scoring floors.
According to Ryan Ward Wenyen Gabriel (two-way contract) will not debut for the Lakers on Tuesday.
Recently signed guards D.J. Augustin AND Wenyen Gabriel (two-way contract) will not debut for the Lakers on Tuesday. The move has no fantasy impact.
Forward Wenyen Gabriel signed with the Los Angeles Lakers on a two-way deal.
The former five star recruit finds himself on his third team this year, and it isn't clear yet if he will have much of a role in the rotation. The team likely did this to help compensate for the release of veteran big man DeAndre Jordan.
Wenyen Gabriel scored eight points on 3-for-5 shooting with five rebounds, two steals and one three-pointer over 15 minutes as the Blazers lost to the Kings.
Since being acquired by the Blazers in January the rookie forward is averaging 2.6 points and 2.3 rebounds over 16 games. Gabriel is not seeing enough playing time to be worth owning in fantasy.
