2016 forward Harry Giles on road to recovery after gruesome knee injury — Cuse Clicks

With a bulky brace strapped to his left knee – a constant reminder of the gruesome injury he suffered on the U16 USA men’s basketball team last year – Harry Giles will compete against 32 other high school stars from around the country for a spot on the U17 national team. He’s about 85-percent healthy, he says. “I feel pretty good. I’m tired, but that’s expected,” Giles said. “I’m trying not to think about it (his knee), but I still do a bit. I just don’t want to injure it again. All my coaches say though, just keep positive vibes.”
