Harry Giles, arguably the top player in the Class of 2016, has a torn ACL, MCL, and meniscus, according to Kenny Beck of WXII in North Carolina.
Giles injured the knee during his second game with the USA U16 team at the FIBA Americas Championship in Uruguay, and Beck quoted him as saying he will come back “way better” than before.
The 6-foot-9, 210-pound Giles out of Wesleyan (N.C.) Christian was unable to play as the U16s won the gold medal in Uruguay.
“I’m just cheering them on,” he said. “I’m still part of this team, even though I’m injured. So I just cheered them on like I was on the court with them.”
