For Giles, it was one inning, three hits, two runs allowed, a couple of strikeouts - and no worries.

"There's no sort of conspiracy theories going on. It's more just trying to get a collaborative effort. It happened with Joel [Embiid] and, I think, with Nerlens [Noel]

It means Okafor will miss the last 23 games of the season, as he hasn't played since Feb. 28 and will not be able to resume basketball activities for six weeks, following what the team labled a minor surgical procedure.
