The team announced Monday afternoon that Giles has suffered a left calf strain and was ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the OKC Thunder.
And while the strain isn't one a person can recover from quickly, Giles is reportedly wearing a walking boot to get around.

Ahead of Tuesday's contest in OKC, Portland's head coach Terry Stotts had this to say about Giles:
No update. He strained his calf and there's really no timeline -- just kind of wait to see how it heals.
Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts said pregame
In Sunday’s win over the Mavs, Giles scored five points and pulled down six rebounds in 13 minutes of work.
On the season, Giles is averaging 3.1 points and 4.9 rebounds, in 11.8 minutes per game. During Portland’s current four-game winning streak, he has brought the energy on both ends with his countless hustle plays, while also giving his team extra possessions.
Now with Enes Kanter as the only true center on the active roster, the Blazers will be forced to go with its small-ball lineup at times with Robert Covington and Carmelo Anthony in the frontcourt.
Rodney Hood (left foot sprain), CJ McCollum (left midfoot fracture), Jusuf Nurkic (right wrist fracture) and Zach Collins (left ankle stress fracture) were also ruled out vs. the Thunder.
