The Sacramento Kings will hold out Harry Giles through at least January.

Giles and the Kings training staff will focus on a measured and sustained progression plan designed to improve physical strength in his surgically repaired knees.

Giles is otherwise healthy and will continue as he has during the preseason to actively participate in controlled elements during team practices. Given his age, personal injury history and the wealth of scientific research supporting a methodical approach to ACL prevention and rehabilitation, Giles will continue on this track going forward and be reevaluated routinely throughout the program.
