    Trail Blazers' Harry Giles: Larger role expected

    Giles posted two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt,), five rebounds and two steals across 11 minutes in Thursday's 111-87 loss to the Pacers.The loss of Jusuf Nurkic (wrist) leaves two healthy centers on Portland's roster. Enes Kanter will be the starter moving forward, but Giles will lead the charge with the second unit. At 6-foot-11, Giles is really the only player besides Kanter who can play the position. Players like Carmelo Anthony and Robert Covington would put the Portland Trail Blazers into a size mismatch on a nightly basis. Nurkic managers who missed out on Kanter should probably consider picking him up, especially in deeper leagues where quality big men are scarce.

    Trail Blazers' Harry Giles: Earns acknowledgement from Stotts

    Coach Terry Stotts praised Giles' start to the preseason Monday, but he noted that it may be difficult to find a consistent role for him during the regular season, Blazers reporter Casey Holdahl reports.Giles has been the clear standout from the Blazers' first two preseason games, and Stotts recognized his efforts following Sunday's 19-point, 13-rebound, three-assist, two-steal effort. "I've been really pleased with the way (Giles) has played, there's no question," Stotts said. "Both games he's scoring the ball well, he's rebounding the ball well, he's playing with a lot of energy, so that's been very encouraging." However, Stotts went on to acknowledge that the Blazers already have a clear starter at center in Jusuf Nurkic, while Enes Kanter, Carmelo Anthony and Zach Collins will all play significant roles in the frontcourt. "I think it's a little early to be talking about minutes and rotations," Stotts said. "But I really like who we have playing in those positions right now. It'll play itself out, but I really like the way Harry is playing. I think he's impressing some people."

    Trail Blazers' Harry Giles: Double-doubles in Trail Blazers debut

    Harry Giles ended with 18 points (8-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 14 rebounds, three steals, two blocks and one assist in 25 minutes during Friday's 127-102 preseason victory over Sacramento.Giles made the most of his opportunities Friday, coming off the bench to lead the Portland Trail Blazers with 18 points. He added 14 rebounds and five defensive stats in what could potentially be his best line of the season. Jusuf Nurkic (COVID-19 protocol) was not in action and so Giles shifted up in the rotation behind Enes Kanter. While it appears Kanter has the backup role locked down, there is certainly a case for Giles to be given a shot at minutes. Kanter's fantasy ceiling is somewhat limited which does open the door for Giles, even if only slightly.

    Trail Blazers' Harry Giles: Lands in Portland

    Giles signed a one-year contract with the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.The Kings declined the 22-year-old's team option for 2020-21 last year, so he hit free agency after the shortened season. Giles averaged 6.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 14.5 minutes for Sacramento last season, and he'll provide frontcourt depth behind Jusuf Nurkic for his new team.

Giles made the most of it, hitting nine of his 11 field goal attempts en route to a team-high scoring total.

    Kings' Harry Giles: Just misses double-double

    Giles scored 12 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding nine rebounds and an assist in 18 minutes off the bench during Monday's scrimmage against the Clippers.The second-year big emerged as the primary backup to Richaun Holmes at center prior to the shutdown, averaging 10.4 points and 6.6 boards in 22.5 minutes over his last 13 games. The fact that Giles even hoisted a shot from beyond the arc -- much less made one -- is also worth noting, as he didn't have a single three-point attempt all season in 38 games. If the 22-year-old used the break to work on his range, it can only bode well for his fantasy value.

    Kings' Harry Giles: Accrues four steals

    Giles posted seven points (3-7 FG, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, four steals and two assists in 20 minutes during Saturday's 131-123 scrimmage loss to the Bucks.Giles drew the start at center and held his own, getting after it defensively. Marvin Bagley (foot) is out for the season, but Richaun Holmes returned to practice Tuesday. Assuming Holmes is good to go by the time the official games begin again, Giles will almost certainly return to a reserve role in the near future.

    Kings' Harry Giles: Returns to bench role

    Harry III Giles isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.Giles started 14 of the last 16 games but will go back to the bench with Richaun Holmes returning to the starting five Wednesday.

    Kings' Harry Giles: Only 15 minutes in loss

    Harry III Giles had 10 points (5-8 FG), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 15 minutes during Thursday's 125-108 loss to the 76ers.Giles struggled through what was an unfavorable matchup, falling victim to the small-ball revolution. He had been playing well leading into Thursday but fell short of the mark in the loss. Word on the street is that Richaun Holmes (shoulder) could return as soon as this weekend, something that is likely to impact Giles' value moving forward. This is certainly the cut-throat end of the fantasy season and if you are battling for a playoff spot, Giles may need to be returned to waivers.

    Kings' Harry Giles: Serviceable effort Tuesday

    Harry III Giles totaled 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, two steals and one assist in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 133-126 victory over the Wizards.Giles continues his mini-breakout, scoring in double digits in six consecutive games. During that span, he has been a top-80 player despite a few inconsistencies in his playing time. Word on the street is that Richaun Holmes (shoulder) could be getting closer to a return but until then, Giles should be rostered in most competitive formats.
