Duke star freshman to miss six weeks


Duke freshman Harry Giles underwent a successful left knee arthroscopy on Monday.

The procedure was performed by Dr. Claude T. Moorman, head team physician, at Duke University Medical Center.

“We’re very pleased with the outcome of today’s procedure,” Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “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.”

The typical recovery time for this procedure is six weeks.

Duke opens the 2016-17 regular season when it hosts Marist on Nov. 11.
