Duke freshman Harry Giles undergoes knee procedure

Monday October 3rd, 2016

Duke freshman Harry Giles underwent a left knee arthroscopy on Monday, the team announced.

“We're very pleased with the outcome of today's procedure,” head coach Mike Krzyewski said in a statement. “This is the right step for Harry at the moment as it will help him be 100 percent going forward. Harry has done a tremendous job in rehabilitation over the last year and I'm sure he'll continue to do the same after this procedure.”

Giles was considered one of the best prospects in the Class of 2016 recruiting class. In 2013, Giles tore the ACL, MCL and meniscus in his left knee and missed his sophomore season. He also tore his right ACL and was forced to miss his senior season.

Duke is clearly No. 1 but still has questions to answer

The recovery time for the procedure is expected to take six weeks.

Duke will open the season on Nov. 11 against Marist.
