Gabriel (back) is active Friday against the Hornets. Gabriel was questionable for Friday's contest due to a right lower back contusion, but he'll suit up for the Pelicans. However, the 23-year-old has yet to see game action this year.
Gabriel is questionable for Friday's game at Charlotte due to a right lower back contusion. The 23-year-old apparently suffered the injury in practice since he has yet to see game action this season. Gabriel's availability, or lack thereof, shouldn't impact coach Stan Van Gundy's rotation Friday.
Gabriel (knee) isn't listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Thunder. The 23-year-old was considered probable for Monday's contest but has yet to make his season debut. Even now that he's healthy, Gabriel is unlikely to be a significant factor in coach Stan Van Gundy's rotation.
Gabriel (knee) is considered probable for Monday's game against the Blazers. Gabriel just returned to full-contact work at Sunday's practice, so there was little evidence that he was close to making his Pelicans debut, but that could come Monday night. Gabriel split last season between Sacramento and Portland, appearing in 30 total games and logging 7.8 minutes per game off the bench. He's unlikely to be a major contributor for the Pels, though New Orleans doesn't have a ton of quality depth at the forward positions.
Gabriel (knee) began participating in contact work Sunday, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. The 23-year-old has been considered day-to-day with right knee tendinitis, and his resumption of contact work is a significant step toward making his season debut. Per Clark, coach Stan Van Gundy indicated Gabriel is close to being available, but it may be awhile before he's up to speed enough to see game action.
