Giles is the No. 3 player in ESPN 25 in the Class of 2016. Giles tore his ACL, MCL and meniscus last June while playing for USA Basketball in Uruguay.
When I spoke with him in January at the Hoop Hall Classic, he said his rehab is coming along nicely.
For him to get back on the court, it will come in stages. He has been doing some straight line movements and plenty of work in the pool and on the bike. Along with that is some light stationary shooting and then shooting and ball-handling with movement.
He is optimistic he will be on the court when spring comes around and can play at full speed and compete. He will play his AAU basketball for @CP3 (Chris Paul).
“Rehab is going well,” Giles said. “I started doing light floaters last week and jump hooks a little bit. I should start jogging soon. I’m around 10 degrees from my full range of motion.”
