Giles will not participate in summer league, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Giles, the 20th overall pick in 2018, had a rotational role for the Kings last season. However, between Marvin Bagley, Willie Cauley-Stein and other frontcourt options, it was tough for Giles to carve out more minutes. Chances are, Giles will be able to garner a bigger role if the Kings move on from Cauley-Stein, who is a free agent. All things considered, it's somewhat surprising that Giles won't participate in summer league, as he played only 820 minutes last season and struggled with foul trouble.
Giles (thigh) has been shut down for the remainder of the season, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
There is no structural damage or setbacks with Giles' injury. He's dealing with lingering stiffness and there's little to no reason to rush the rookie back. He'll finish his first season in the NBA averaging 7.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 14.1 minutes, establishing a season-high 20 points in just 21 minutes on Jan. 30 against Atlanta.
Giles (thigh) is unavailable for Tuesday's game against Houston.
Giles has missed six straight contests due to a left thigh bruise, so this update comes as no surprise. Marvin Bagley and Kosta Koufos should continue to see an uptick in minutes as a result.
Giles (thigh) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Spurs, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.
Giles will be missing a sixth-straight game due to his thigh bruise. His next chance to play will be against the Rockets on Tuesday.
Giles (thigh) will remain sidelined for Saturday's tilt against the Rockets, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
The absence will mark Giles fifth consecutive game missed. He has consistently been considered questionable heading into the game, so he figures to remain day-to-day going forward.
Giles (thigh) will not play Thursday against New Orleans.
It'll be the fourth consecutive absence for Giles, who was questionable coming in but will ultimately sit with a bruised left thigh. His next chance to take the floor will arrive Saturday in Houston.
Giles (thigh) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.
This will be Giles' fourth straight absence due to a bruised left thigh. The Kings, however, are still considering the big man as day-to-day, so they appear to be optimistic that he will Giles will be able to return before season's end.
Giles (thigh) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks.
It looks as though Giles will miss his third straight game as he continues to deal with a bruised left thigh. More information on his status should come out following the team's morning activities. If he's unable to go, Marvin Bagley could see a larger role.
Giles (thigh) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Lakers.
Giles also missed Saturday's game with a bruised left thigh, so it's not overly shocking that he'll be held out on the back-to-back. Consider the rookie day-to-day heading into Tuesday's game in Dallas.
Giles (thigh) has been ruled out for Saturday's matchup with the Suns, Sean Cunningham of ABC10 Sacramento reports.
Giles was a game-time decision after exiting Thursday's win over the Mavericks due to a thigh contusion. Saturday's game against the Suns is the first of a back-to-back set, so there is a chance Giles is ready to return for Sunday's tilt against the Lakers. In his absence, look for Marvin Bagley to see increased action.
Giles (thigh) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against Phoenix, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
The severity of Giles' injury, which was first sustained Thursday, is unclear, but it seems likely that he'll be a game-time decision Saturday. If he's unable to go, look for Marvin Bagley to see an uptick in minutes.
Giles left int he second quarter of Thursday's game with a left thigh contusion and did not return, Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee reports.
Giles played just eight minutes and failed to score before exiting the game, and it remains unclear how serious the big man's injury is. He should be considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Suns.
Giles ended with 16 points (8-14 FG), six rebounds, three assists, three blocks, and one steal in 21 minutes during Sunday's 129-102 victory over Chicago.
Giles scored an efficient 16 points Sunday, seeing a slightly increased role due to the blowout nature of the scoreline. Giles has flashed his upside this season and there is a chance he eventually usurps Willie Cauley-Stein in the starting lineup. Until then, however, he remains more of a streaming option in standard formats if you are looking for cheap big man stats.
Giles finished with 17 points (7-9 FG, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes Monday in the Kings' 115-108 win over the Knicks.
Giles hasn't directly benefited from the absence of Marvin Bagley (knee) the past two games -- he played exclusively at center while splitting the minutes with starter Willie Cauley-Stein -- but the rookie has seen his production tick up nonetheless. He has now put up at least 15 points, five boards and two dimes in three consecutive contests while shooting an excellent 65.7 percent from the field.
Giles ended with 18 points (9-13 FG, 0-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, and one block in 17 minutes during Wednesday's 141-140 loss to the Bucks.
Giles put in a strong performance Wednesday, coming away with his highest points total since the end of January. Marvin Bagley (knee) went down with a knee injury and it appears as though he could miss time going forward. There is a chance Giles sees an elevated role, however, he is still likely to have consistent value in deeper formats only.
Giles produced just seven points (1-2 FG, 5-5 FT), in 12 minutes during Wednesday's 120-118 loss to the Nuggets.
Giles has seen his playing time diminish over the past three games, resulting in a dip in production. The arrival of Harrison Barnes has likely cut into Giles minutes somewhat, although his value was limited to deeper formats prior to the trade anyway.
Giles totaled 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and one steal across 17 minutes in the Kings' 102-96 win over the Heat on Friday.
Giles outscored fellow young big Marvin Bagley III in the win, posting his third straight double-digit scoring effort in the process, and his fourth in the last five games overall. The 2017 first-round pick hasn't really experienced any increase in playing time, but a boost in usage has led to what is his best multi-game offensive stretch of the campaign thus far. Giles has notably taken between eight and 12 shots in the aforementioned quartet of contests, an encouraging development for those holding him in deep formats and keeper/dynasty leagues.
Giles put up 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 17 minutes Wednesday in the Kings' 127-101 loss to the Rockets.
Houston amassed a 31-point lead heading into halftime, resulting in the minutes for Willie Cauley-Stein and the Kings' other starters being more limited than usual. The blowout paved the way for Giles and fellow rookie Marvin Bagley (10 points, 10 boards, two blocks) to see more action, with both turning in useful lines. It's expected that Cauley-Stein, an impending restricted free agent, will remain with the Kings after Thursday's trade deadline passes, but Giles has played well enough of late to potentially cut into the veteran's minutes on a more frequent basis over the final couple months of the season.
Giles registered 20 points (10-12 FG), seven rebounds, and one assist in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 135-113 win over the Hawks.
Giles poured in a career high scoring total while missing only two field-goal attempts. January was already by far his best month of the season, and he finished it on a high note. With that being said, the team's depth down low limits his value to deeper leagues.
Giles contributed 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 23 minutes Tuesday in the Kings' 120-105 loss to the Raptors.
Starting center Willie Cauley-Stein was plagued by foul trouble and played just 25 minutes, which paved the way for Giles to tie his season high in playing time. The rookie delivered another solid stat line and is now averaging 6.9 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.8 rejections in 17.7 minutes per game in January. There's some untapped fantasy upside here with Giles, but his potential will likely be limited so long as Cauley-Stein is around. Giles is more likely to become a must-own asset in 2019-20, as Cauley-Stein is slated to become a restricted free agent this summer and might not be retained.
