Michael Porter Jr. is cleared to play basketball again after sitting out all but two minutes of his highly-anticipated freshman season up until this point.
The projected NBA lottery pick met with a back specialist in Dallas on Thursday, and now he is ready to resume basketball activities with Missouri.
Missouri’s next game? Kentucky, of course.
It’s unclear if he’ll actually play on Saturday, but odds are pretty high Cuonzo Martin will give him a look. Porter Jr. has been working out and recently said he hopes to get some game experience before the NCAA tournament, which says he’s anxious to get on the court.
With this new development, there will be a whole lot of eyes on Rupp Arena in two days.
