2018 Fantasy Outlook
While recovering from knee surgery, Giles, the 20th pick in the 2017 Draft, didn't see the court last season. However, he was healthy enough to play in summer league this year, and he performed well. In seven appearances, he averaged 10.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and over two combined blocks and steals in 24.6 minutes. In what will be his rookie year, Giles is expected to play a backup role in the frontcourt behind the likes of Willie Cauley-Stein and No. 2 overall pick Marvin Bagley. However, the Kings have other solid frontcourt options off the pine as well, so there’s no guarantee that Giles will crack 20 minutes on a nightly basis. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $4.07 million contract with the Kings in July of 2017. Kings exercised $2.58 million team option for 2019-20 in October of 2018. Contract includes team option for 2020-21.

Giles (thigh) has been shut down for the remainder of the season, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
ANALYSIS
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.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Giles had his first start in college come in December of 2016 after missing the first chunk of the season due to arthroscopic left knee surgery. He struggled to make a significant impact as a freshman, posting just 3.9 points and 3.8 rebounds across 11.5 minutes per game, though shot 57.7 percent from the field. Despite three total knee surgeries and a subpar 300-minute college career, Giles is still an impressive athlete – 6-foot-11, 240 pounds with a 7-foot-3 wingspan and 32.5-inch vertical -- with enough upside for the Kings to have drafted him with the 20th overall pick in the 2017 Draft. His size should allow for him to play both power forward and center at the NBA level. That said, all the time he’s missed due to knee surgeries has stunted his development as an offensive player, resulting in him seeing most of his points in college coming from running in transition, diving towards the rim off pick-and-rolls, plus working the offensive glass. Prior to his injuries though, he established a nice baseline of quick, efficient post moves and even a solid mid-range jumper. Next season for Giles will likely be about utilizing his best skills -- rebounding and shot-blocking – in game, while working on his offensive skill and overall basketball IQ in training camp, practice, garbage time, etc. With that in mind, Giles can likely be avoided in seemingly every Fantasy format, as he doesn’t necessarily project to see even significant rotational minutes.
