Michael Porter Jr. practices Wednesday, expected to play Thurdsay

Tigers coach Cuonzo Martin told reporters Wednesday that Porter would not start against the victor of Thursday night's Georgia-Vanderbilt game. Porter has missed almost the entire season, sans a two-minute stint in the season-opener, having been hampered by a back injury that required surgery.

Mizzou fans wanting to see Michael Porter Jr. back on the court will get their wish. Missouri head coach Cuonzo Martin now says the star freshman could play as many as 25 minutes tomorrow night. "It's really how I feel, the flow of the game, and how he feels".

At practice today in St. Louis where the tournament will be held, Porter showed of some serious consistency from beyond the 3-point line. But I'd be surprised if he played 30 minutes.

"If he's healthy, we're rolling", Martin added.

"Unless Mike says otherwise, that's what it is", Martin said. 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.

CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein reported on February 22 that Porter received full clearance from doctors to resume basketball activities.

Missouri will play the victor of Vanderbilt and Georgia at approximately 2:30 p.m. Thursday. Missouri finished with a 20-11 regular season record without Porter.

NBA Draft analysts still project Porter to be a lottery selection.
