Missouri has confirmed that Porter Jr. (back) will undergo surgery on his L3-L4 spinal discs, and will likely miss the remainder of the season, Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

This comes as a huge blow for Missouri, as Porter Jr. was a highly touted recruit, and expected to be among the most talented freshman in the country this season. The recovery process is expected to take three to four months, and will likely cause him to miss the remainder of the season. There is a slim chance that Porter Jr. could return by March, however this isn't expected.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Porter (hip) will not play in Monday's game against Emporia State, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reports.

There is no real update on Porter's status, according to Goodman, so he remains without a specified timetable for a return. Porter will be at an appointment with a specialist Monday night, so he won't even be with the team. The freshman phenom's next opportunity to play will be when the team travels to Orlando for the Advocare Invitational on Thursday, and he should be considered questionable-at-best for the tournament.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Porter (hip) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Utah, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Porter continues to deal with a leg/hip injury and didn't even travel with the team for Thursday's contest. That rules him out against Utah, though he's set to be reevaluated next week to determine if he'll need even more time off. Missouri's next game comes on Monday against Emporia State, so tentatively consider Porter questionable for that matchup until the results of next week's evaluation are revealed.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coach Cuonzo Martin said Monday night that Porter (hip) may not even travel with the team to Utah for Thursday's game, Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Porter initially suffered an injury near his hip and leg during pregame warmups ahead of Friday's opener against Iowa State. The injury has limited him to just two total minutes played over the school's first two games, and his status heading into their third game is not looking optimistic.

Porter (hip) has been ruled out of Monday's game against Wagner, Sean Farnham of ESPN reports.

Porter sustained some sort of injury to his left leg in pregame warmups before Missouri's season opener last Friday. He'll apparently need more time to recover, but it isn't out of the realm of possibility for him to return in time for Thursday's matchup with Utah. Consider him day-to-day moving forward.

November 13, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Porter (hip) will have his availability for Monday's matchup against Wagner determined during shootaround, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Porter apparently sustained the ailment during the pre-game warmups for Friday's opener, and although he attempted to give it a go, the freshman was forced out after logging only two minutes. He now appears headed towards another game-time decision, though considering the revitalized Tigers beat a Big 12 foe by 15 without him, it wouldn't be surprising if he's held out as a precaution against a softer opponent. If Porter is held out again, it would likely be Kevin Puryear -- who had 17 points and eight rebounds over 29 minutes Friday -- that steps into the starting lineup. Michael's brother Jontay Porter could also see a handful of extra frontcourt minutes.

November 10, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Porter played only two minutes in the first half of Friday's game against Iowa State due to a hip injury, Brian Hamilton of The Athletic reports.

Porter apparently tweaked his hip in pre-game warmups, but has not been ruled out to play in the second half. The injury doesn't seem severe if the team has yet to rule out a return to Friday's game, but more details will likely be available after the game.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Porter provided 24 points on 5-of-16 shooting in a closed scrimmage against Wisconsin on Saturday, the Columbia Missourian reports.

Porter left a little to be desired from an efficiency standpoint, but if one thing is clear so far in exhibition play, it's that the freshman isn't afraid to put up shots. This pattern should carry over into the regular season, as the Missouri offense is expected to be run primarily through the nation's top recruit. From a fantasy perspective, Porter may do a little damage to ratios (in leagues that value them), but should rack up more than enough counting stats in the upcoming campaign to warrant an early selection on draft day.
