  • Celtics' Wenyen Gabriel: Joining Boston

    Gabriel agreed to a one-year contract with the Celtics on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Gabriel appeared in 68 games for the Lakers last season, averaging 5.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in 15.1 minutes per contest With the Celtics dealing away Robert Williams to Portland earlier Sunday, the addition of Gabriel gives the team more depth in the frontcourt. Expect Gabriel to battle with Luke Kornet and Neemias Queta for backup minutes in the frontcourt behind the Celtics' top two big men, Kristaps Porzingis and Al Horford.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Grabs eight rebounds in bench role

    Gabriel compiled six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 20 minutes in Sunday's 111-105 win over the Magic.

    Gabriel has fallen back below 30 minutes over the past two games with Anthony Davis making his return from a one-game respite for his lingering right foot injury, but the former has played well enough to maintain a role as the Lakers' top reserve in the frontcourt ahead of Rui Hachimura. Though he may continue to have some usefulness as a streamer for rebounds and defensive stats if he's able to maintain a 20-plus-minute role moving forward, Gabriel's contributions in other areas aren't strong enough to make him a roster-worthy player in 12-team category leagues.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Tallies career-high 14 boards

    Gabriel logged six points (2-5 FG, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, two steals and one assist across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 114-110 loss to the Rockets.

    Gabriel tallied 33 minutes Wednesday -- his highest mark of the campaign -- due largely to the absence of Anthony Davis (foot). Gabriel responded by crashing the boards, grabbing a career-best 14 rebounds, seven of which came on the offensive end. While his work on the glass helped make up for Davis' absence, Gabriel couldn't come close to matching The Brow's offensive impact, scoring in single digits for his 15th straight game dating back to early February.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Grabs 10 boards in win

    Gabriel chipped in five points (2-7 FG, 1-2 FT) and 10 rebounds in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 123-117 victory over the Thunder.

    Mo Bamba got the start at center with Anthony Davis (foot) out of action, but Gabriel still saw his most action in nearly three weeks. The big man made the most of his minutes, pulling down a season-high 10 rebounds. Davis could be back for Los Angeles' next game, and with Bamba now in the fold, Gabriel doesn't appear to have a path to enough playing time to make him a factor in fantasy.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Secures seven boards

    Gabriel logged seven points (2-4 FG, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and two assists over 13 minutes during Monday's 127-115 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Gabriel played only 13 minutes Monday, but he nonetheless managed to lead Los Angeles with five offensive boards. The big man received less minutes than Jarred Vanderbilt and Rui Hachimura (22 each), which suggests that his days of logging 20-plus minutes per game -- as he did in five straight contests in mid-January -- are likely behind him. Gabriel's playing time could diminish even further when the recently acquired Mo Bamba (suspension) joins the fold.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Encroaching on Bryant's role

    Gabriel had 14 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal across 24 minutes before fouling out of Monday's 140-132 victory over Houston.

    Gabriel provided Los Angeles with excellent production off the bench, leading the team in rebounds and nearly securing a double-double. He added a pair of blocks in the victory to tie Thomas Bryant for the team lead in the category. While Bryant remains the team's starting center, Gabriel has been outperforming him of late, averaging 14.0 points, 5.7 boards, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals over his past three games versus Bryant's 9.0/6.0/1.0/0.0 marks across the same span. Gabriel has logged more minutes than his counterpart in each of those games, a clear indication that the Lakers are gaining trust in his ability to contribute on a nightly basis.

  • Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel: Steps up with solid outing

    Gabriel ended Thursday's 119-115 double-overtime loss to the Mavericks with 14 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two blocks and two steals over 33 minutes.

    Gabriel came into the contest averaging just 6.8 points and 3.6 boards over 16.4 minutes in five January contests, but he well exceeded each of those marks against Dallas. The big man logged a season-high 33 minutes and posted his best scoring effort since he notched 15 points against San Antonio in late November. Gabriel also swatted two shots for the second straight game, and he was on the court down the stretch and into overtime while starter Thomas Bryant sat on the bench. It's uncertain if that decision will have any implications moving forward, but Gabriel may have earned himself a few extra minutes per game -- at least until Anthony Davis (foot) returns -- given his strong showing.
