SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento Kings rookie Harry Giles will not play until at least January while he rehabs his surgically repaired knees.
Giles is the 20th overall draft pick out of Duke. He missed summer league to rest his left knee. The team said Friday he will work with the training staff to build strength and endurance. He will participate in some "controlled" parts of practice.
Giles had an arthroscopic procedure on his left knee last October after a ligament tear during high school in 2013. He also tore a ligament in his right knee in 2015.
The Kings say they are taking a "methodical approach" and Giles will be "reevaluated routinely throughout the program."
