Top Wenyen Gabriel News

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Out at least one week

    Gabriel (shoulder) will be re-evaluated in approximately one week and will miss at least the Lakers' next four games, Dave McMenamin of reports.

    Gabriel may have suffered his sprained left shoulder during the Lakers' win over the Wizards on Sunday, when he was limited to nine minutes. The 25-year-old has been a rotation player for the Lakers this season, but his playing time has dropped recently following the recent return of LeBron James from a five-game absence.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Won't play Tuesday

    Gabriel (shoulder) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Cleveland, Ryan Ward of reports.

    Gabriel will miss his first game since Oct. 23 due to a shoulder injury. He's averaging 13.6 minutes off the bench this season, so his absence will likely open room for Juan Toscano-Anderson and/or Troy Brown to garner slightly increased roles.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Questionable Tuesday

    Gabriel is questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Cavaliers with left shoulder soreness, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The Kentucky product has appeared in 19 consecutive games for the Lakers but is questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Cavaliers. If Gabriel is forced to sit out, his next chance to return comes Wednesday in Toronto.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Puts together solid night

    Gabriel notched 15 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 22 minutes during Saturday's 143-138 win over the Spurs.

    Gabriel had been held to four total points over his previous three contests prior to Saturday's game, but he saw a sizable uptick in minutes with Anthony Davis (calf) out of commission. He also swatted away a pair of shots, marking his first blocks since Nov. 11 against the Kings. Gabriel has scored in double figures twice so far in November and has averaged 6.2 points and 3.6 rebounds over that stretch (12 games).

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Efficient outing versus Pistons

    Gabriel contributed 15 points (5-5 FG, 5-5 FT) and seven rebounds in 18 minutes during Friday's 128-121 victory over the Pistons.

    Gabriel not only reached double digits scoring for the first time all season but also added a season-high seven boards despite playing no more minutes than he has of late. Five free-throw attempts certainly aided his effort in this one, and there's nothing notable regarding his shot volume to anticipate repeat performances on this scale. Gabriel can be left on waiver wires in most formats.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Coming off bench Sunday

    Gabriel isn't starting Sunday's game against the Nets, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Gabriel started Friday against the Kings and logged eight points, two rebounds, an assist and two blocks in 19 minutes during the loss. He'll come off the bench while Austin Reaves draws the start Sunday.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Starting Friday

    Gabriel will enter the starting lineup for Friday's contest against the Kings, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Gabriel enters the starting lineup in place of LeBron James (adductor), joining Patrick Beverley, Lonnie Walker, Troy Brown and Anthony Davis. In Gabriel's only start of the season, he tallied four points, four rebounds, two assists and three steals in 24 minutes of action. However, he lost minutes due to a blowout in that start, so Gabriel may be in line for a larger workload Friday.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Back to bench

    Gabriel will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Clippers, Ryan Ward of reports.

    Gabriel received his first start of the season in Monday's loss to the Jazz, but he'll shift back to his usual reserve role Wednesday with LeBron James rejoining the lineup. In eight appearances this season, Gabriel has averaged 3.9 points and 3.1 rebounds in 13.3 minutes per contest.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Draws spot start

    Gabriel is starting Monday's game against the Jazz, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Gabriel will draw the start at power forward with LeBron James (foot) receiving the night off. This marks Gabriel's first start of the 2022-23 season.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Good to go Sunday

    Gabriel (illness) is available to play Sunday against the Cavaliers, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Gabriel was one of the latest victims of the flu bug that has been passing around the Lakers' locker room, as he had been listed as probable heading into the day. The 25-year-old ultimately showed enough improvement upon reporting to the arena Sunday to get the green light to play, and he should fill a minor role in L.A.'s frontcourt rotation.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Probable vs. Cavs

    Gabriel (illness) is probable for Sunday's game against the Cavaliers, Ryan Ward of reports.

    Gabriel has played well lately, averaging 5.8 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 14.3 minutes. He's not expected to sit out Sunday.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Puts on defensive showcase

    Gabriel tallied eight points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three steals, two blocks and one assist in 21 minutes during Friday's 111-102 to Minnesota.

    Gabriel had by far his best performance of the season Friday, as he had tallied only one assist and one rebound in his previous two appearances. His defensive numbers were impressive, but he is unlikely to see anywhere near 21 minutes when Anthony Davis (back) returns to the lineup.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Comes up empty

    Gabriel racked up no counting stats over three minutes during Wednesday's 110-99 loss to the Nuggets.

    The Lakers exercised their team option on Gabriel prior to the season, but that didn't ensure him a regular role in the rotation. Despite performing reasonably well over 16.4 minutes per game in his 19 appearances with the Lakers last season, Gabriel has only appeared in two of the team's first four tilts to open 2022-23, averaging just 5.5 minutes in those appearances. Barring injuries elsewhere in the frontcourt, it seems unlikely to change anytime soon.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Team option exercised

    Gabriel had his $1.9 million team option picked up by the Lakers on Wednesday, Keith Smith of reports.

    Gabriel spent time with the Nets and Clippers last season before ending up on the Lakers in February. He played double-digit minutes in 15 of his final 17 appearances, averaging 7.2 points and 4.5 rebounds in 18.0 minutes during that stretch. He'll likely be a depth option next season.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Puts up 14 and 10 in win

    Gabriel racked up 14 points (6-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-5 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and two blocks over 38 minutes during Sunday's 146-141 overtime win over Denver.

    The Lakers finished the season with back-to-back wins, something they hadn't previously done since the first week of January. Gabriel got the start at center with Dwight Howard resting and saw a season-high 38 minutes of action. He posted his first career double-double and added a pair of blocks for good measure. The Lakers signed Gabriel to a standard NBA deal last week, so they may look to keep him around as a depth piece in 2022-23.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Set to start at center

    Gabriel will start Sunday against Denver, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.

    With Dwight Howard joining the list of resting Lakers, Gabriel will move into the lineup at center for the regular-season finale. The former Kentucky standout recently signed a standard NBA deal with the Lakers, moving him off two-way-player status.
