Harry Giles came off the bench on Friday night to finish with 15 points, five rebounds, two assists, and one steal in only 17 minutes. Giles went 7-for-13 from the field and showed some good defense from time to time on the Clippers’ bigs.

Fantasy Impact:

Giles will take over the “Marvin Bagley” role for the Kings as Bagley will likely be out for at least a couple of weeks. In the two games that Bagley was absent, Giles has scored 15 and 18 points respectively while also shooting 57.5% from the field. Pick him up if he’s still on the wire.
