More on Giles: Tore not just his ACL but MCL and meniscus in 2013 while playing for USA Basketball. Rehabbed while in high school.


  • Tom Smith said,

    It is not his ACL if it is a six week recovery. I would imagine an MCL or meniscus.

  • Andy Durham said,

    I would think out longer too with the ACL, but hard to tell by the specifics of the tweet….

    Take your pick ACL, MCL, meniscus, they all hurt and it hurts to think about them….

    I am almost having a latissimus dorsi attack thinking about this one….

  • In the know said,

    It was arthroscopic surgery on his ACL it was just to clean it up from where he had the previous surgery, that takes about six weeks.
