Gabriel Deck will be available to play as the Oklahoma City Thunder host the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday evening, the team announced.

Deck, 26, landed in Oklahoma City last week. He went through a seven-day quarantine, in order to be cleared. His NBA debut was indeed pushed back until the home fixture versus the Pelicans, according to the initial timetable.

The Argentine forward joins the team with ten games left in the Regular Season. His side is all but eliminated from the play-in games of the Western Conference sitting ten wins away from the tenth spot.

He started the 2020-21 season at Real Madrid but jumping to the NBA cut short his third campaign at the Spanish giant. He averaged 8.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per Turkish Airlines EuroLeague contest, and 10.0 points per ACB match.
