Harry Giles III is returning from injury and is slated to make his return to the Portland Trail Blazers’ active roster after being upgraded to “probable” for tomorrow’s re-match with the New Orleans Pelicans. Jamie Hudson of NBCSports Northwest tweeted the news today.

The Blazers have only fielded one recognized center — Enes Kanter — since Giles went down with a left calf strain against the Dallas Mavericks on Valentine’s Day.

During Giles’ absence, the Blazers have been playing 6’7 Robert Covington as Kanter’s main backup.

The team is still without its starting center Jusuf Nurkic who looks set to return in less than two weeks, while no schedule has been given for fellow big man Zach Collins.

In 22 games played this season, Giles has recorded averages of 11.8 minutes, 3.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, 0.9 assists and 0.4 blocks.

The Blazers signed Giles in the offseason after he spent his first two years in the league with the Sacramento Kings.
