Missouri's Michael Porter Jr. expected to play in SEC tournament”

While the injury was expected to keep Porter out for the entire season, the potential National Basketball Association lottery pick was cleared to play in mid-February and is expected to return Thursday in the Southeastern Conference Tournament, according to coach Cuonzo Martin. He has not played since Missouri's November 10 season-opener against Iowa State, a game in which he played just two minutes.

Martin alerted the media of Porter's return Tuesday, with the news eventually broken via SEC Network's Paul Finebaum.

"He could play 20-25 minutes", Martin said, per ESPN. He played two minutes and scored two points before leaving with an injury.

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