Michael Porter Jr. Will Play in SEC Tournament After Back Injury

Mizzou's Michael Porter Jr. to play in SEC Tournament, coach Cuonzo Martin says

The wait will finally be over Thursday.

Porter, who had back surgery in November, has played 2 minutes this season.

Missouri Tigers freshman forward Michael Porter Jr. will play during the team's SEC Tournament opening matchup on Thursday.

Missouri head coach Cuonzo Martin told reporters on Wednesday that Porter will not start and would "be surprised if he plays 30 minutes". "It's really how I feel, the flow of the game, and how he feels". It had to be completely up to him, to say, 'Coach, I'm completely ready to go. "For me it was always Mike's decision to play or not play".

Bears Use Transition Tag On Cornerback Kyle Fuller
The Bears have come up with a more creative and less expensive way of keeping free-agent cornerback Kyle Fuller . He collected three interceptions and two forced fumbles in his first three games of his rookie season.

"If he's healthy, we're rolling". He was named the Gatorade National Basketball Player of the Year and a McDonald's All-American, and 247Sports had second in the class of 2017 to Marvin Bagley.

Porter Jr., is a five-star recruit and potential No. 1 overall pick in this year's National Basketball Association draft. The Tigers went 20-11 without Porter and now are projected to be a No. 8 seed in The Big Dance, but his return gives them the look of the top 15 team they were projected to be before the season started.

But Porter has been ahead of schedule in his recovery and has now been practicing with the team for a week.

Fifth-seeded Missouri (20-11) faces the victor of Wednesday's Georgia-Vanderbilt game at 2:30 p.m. Thursday at Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
