Giles tallied 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 FT) and 12 rebounds across 24 minutes during Tuesday's 94-80 summer league win over Memphis.
Giles continues to flash his potential after missing of all of last season. In six summer league tilts, he's totaled 54 points, 41 rebounds, 10 steals, four blocks and an assist. At this rate, he could earn himself a rotational role for the Kings in what is set to be his rookie campaign.
Giles compiled 17 points (8-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt), six rebounds, five steals and a block across 31 minutes during Saturday's 71-63 summer league loss to the Suns.
Giles, the 20th overall pick in 2017 who missed all of last season due to injury, has come out of the gates looking comfortable. In the three games prior to Saturday's impressive performance, he had been averaging 9.3 points, 6.0 rebounds and a combined 2.7 steals/blocks across 27.0 minutes. Though he'll presumably be behind Marvin Bagley on the depth chart, Giles may be able to find rotational run this season.
Giles scored 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-2 3PT) to go with three rebounds in Monday's summer league win over the Lakers.
A first-round pick in 2017, Giles was held out of the entire 2017-18 season while working back from multiple procedures on both of his knees. While he may never get back to the level that once made him the top overall recruit in the country, the Kings have publicly stated that they're encouraged by his strides and expect him to be a contributor next season.
The 14th overall pick in the 2017 draft, Giles missed his entire rookie season on what was essentially a medical redshirt. The former top overall recruit in his class has dealt with multiple knee injuries over the last few years, but the Kings have been encouraged by his progress, and the hope is that Giles can be an impact player in 2018-19. The Kings will continue to let Giles recover at his own pace, however, so gauging his fantasy value will likely be a wait-and-see process.
Giles (knee) will be shut down for the rest of the season, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
There was very little optimism regarding Giles' chances of playing this season, and while there was a small chance the rookie could see some time before season's end, Thursday's news ends any possibility of that. He's been able to slowly participate more and more in practice this season, but with Sacramento already facing a lost season, there is no reason to rush Giles back. The good news is that Giles hasn't suffered any setbacks in his recovery, and the organization will continue to work to get the big man fully healthy in time for next season.
