Gabriel was assigned to the Erie BayHawks on Wednesday, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Gabriel has only appeared in four games for the Pelicans this year, but he'll now head to the G League bubble in Orlando ahead of the 2021 playoffs. The 23-year-old should get more playing time with the BayHawks to close out the G League campaign.
Gabriel didn't score but grabbed one rebound in two minutes of action during Tuesday's win over Houston.
Gabriel made an appearance for just the third time this year. The forward hasn't scored yet but has hauled in a total of four rebounds since making his season debut against the Rockets on Jan. 30.
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.
Gabriel (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Raptors.
Gabriel remains day-to-day with right knee tendinitis, but he has yet to participate in contact work. His next chance to play will be Monday against Indiana.
Gabriel (knee) remains out for Thursday's matchup against the Thunder.
Gabriel is day-to-day with right knee tendinitis. His next chance to take the court will come Saturday against the Raptors.

The 23-year-old will be sidelined for the fourth straight game to begin the season due to the knee tendinitis. It's unclear when Gabriel is expected to retake the court.
Gabriel (knee) is out Sunday against the Spurs.
A right knee and quad issue will keep Gabriel on the shelf. It's not clear when he may be able to take the court.
Gabriel (knee) is out for Friday's game against the Heat.
Knee tendinitis will keep Gabriel out for a second straight game. It's not clear when he'll be available to make his season debut.
Gabriel (knee) will not play in Wednesday's opener against the Raptors.
Gabriel is still nursing the tendinitis in his right knee that sidelined him throughout the preseason. He'll likely be evaluated on a game-to-game basis, though there's a good chance he'll miss several contests to begin the regular season.
Gabriel (knee) remains out for Friday's preseason finale against the Bucks, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.
Gabriel still hasn't practiced due to right knee tendinitis, so he's relatively far from playing in a game. Even once he's cleared, his role on the Pelicans this season will be relatively small.
Gabriel will not play in Monday's preseason opener against the Heat due to a sore right knee and quadriceps.
The official designation is "right knee/quadriceps tendinosis," so it's likely the Pelicans are simply being cautious with the young forward, who signed as a free agent this offseason.
Gabriel signed a one-year contract with a team option for a second season with the Pelicans on Monday, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Gabriel will make $1.6 million this season and will earn $1.8 million if kept around for a second year. The forward appeared in 30 games for the Kings and Trail Blazers last season, scoring 2.1 points and bringing down 1.7 rebounds in 7.8 minutes per game.
Gabriel is out for Saturday's Game 5 against the Lakers due to right quad tendinitis, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.
Already down Damian Lillard (knee), the Blazers will lose another rotation piece in Gabriel. In his absence, Mario Hezonja could see extra run.
Gabriel will come off the bench while Hassan Whiteside draws the start for Saturday's Game 3 against the Lakers, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.
Gabriel started the first two games of the series, but after a Game 2 loss, coach Terry Stotts will experiment with starting Whiteside next to Jusuf Nurkic, pushing Gabriel to the pine. It's not clear if the move will significantly affect Gabriel's workload. In the series, he's averaging 5.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 18.5 minutes.
Gabriel will start Tuesday's Game 1 against the Lakers in place of Zach Collins (ankle), Marc Spears of ESPN reports.
Collins' absence is another significant blow to the Blazers' depth, so coach Terry Stotts will dip into his bench and go with Gabriel at the four alongside Jusuf Nurkic and Carmelo Anthony. The Kentucky product has just one career NBA start under his belt, and he played only 33 total minutes during seeding play.
Gabriel grabbed one rebound in one minute during Wednesday's 111-104 loss to the Grizzlies.
Gabriel scored a career-high 12 points in 14 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Pelicans but was an afterthought in the rotation in this one. He has appeared in just 18 games thus far this season, and the rookie forward can be left on waiver wires for now.
