    The Kings have ruled Harry Giles (sore left knee) out for the rest of the preseason.

    Giles didn't travel to India with the team and though an MRI revealed no structural damage, he's still being held out of action. Constantly injured, Giles figures to slot in as a backup center/power forward whenever he gets healthy. He's only worth a look in extremely deep leagues with this news and uncertainty about his timetable.

    Harry Giles (sore knee) and Cory Joseph (sore calf) have been ruled out ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Suns.

    Giles has the potential for more, but is currently in a logjam at C for the Kings and doesn't hold much value in standard leagues. Joseph will back up De'Aaron Fox at the point and is off the fantasy radar in standard leagues.

    Harry Giles did not travel with the Kings for the India preseason games.

    He stayed back in the states to get an MRI and it revealed no structural damage. Giles posses immense potential but his injury history seems to be the only thing holding him back. He is currently slated to be the back up center heading into the year and doesn't hold much value in standard leagues.

    According to the Kings, second-year big man Harry Giles is having issues with knee soreness in his surgically repaired left knee and he will stay back in Sacramento in order to continue his preparation for the upcoming season.

    Giles is no stranger to knee issues. The 21-year-old center underwent reconstructive surgery on both ACLs during his prep career and he needed a cleanup procedure on his left knee during his time at Duke University. The Kings added depth at the center position in Dewayne Dedmon and Richaun Holmes over the summer and, even though there is no word yet on what this latest setback means for the upcoming season, this is definitely a step back for the talented big man.

    Harry Giles averaged 7.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.4 blocks in 14.1 mpg in his first NBA season.

    After missing all of last year, Giles generated a bit of hype and although he wasn't really an impact player, there were some flashes of what his ceiling might be like. He's a quality passer and the per-minute numbers are interesting, but it's fair to wonder how long it'll take him to get to the 25-28 mpg range that it'll take to change interesting into productive. Giles was a top-300/350 player when he was on the court, though his season was ended early because of a bruised left thigh. It doesn't look like a long-term concern.

    Harry Giles (left thigh contusion) will miss the remainder of the 2018-19 season for the Kings.

    Giles has missed seven straight games with a left thigh contusion and the Kings only have five left to play. With the Kings eliminated from playoff contention, it makes little sense to rush Giles back on the court and risk aggravating a small injury. Expect Willie Cauley-Stein, Nemanja Bjelica and Kosta Koufos to continue to absorb his minutes in the rotation.

    Harry Giles (left thigh bruise) has been ruled out vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

    This will make it six straight missed games for Giles and with the Kings only having five more after tonight's game, it's very possible he doesn't suit up for the rest of the season. Willie Cauley-Stein, Nemanja Bjelica and Kosta Koufos will try and pick up the slack.

    Harry Giles (left thigh contusion) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Rockets.

    This will be the fifth straight absence for Giles, who does not need to be rostered in any re-draft formats at this point. With Nemanja Bjelica out sick we're going to see some different looks from the Kings up front. Expect a lot of Marvin Bagley and Willie Cauley-Stein with a sprinkling of Kosta Koufos and smaller lineups.

    Harry Giles III (left thigh contusion) has been downgraded to out against the Pelicans on Thursday.

    Giles will miss his fourth straight game. Nemanja Bjelica has stepped up his game with top-65 value in 9-cat leagues with the extra time over the past week, and is worth a look against a soft Pelicans defense.

    Harry Giles (left thigh contusion) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Pelicans.

    If Giles were to miss this one it would be his fourth straight game on the sidelines. Marvin Bagley and Nemanja Bjelica should both continue to see more run in his absence.
