Thursday is the day Missouri coach Cuonzo Martin pointed out last week when discussing Porter's status. The Tigers subsequently announced the forward would require back surgery and likely miss the remainder of the season.

Porter underwent back surgery November 21 that was expected to keep him out of most, if not all, of the 2017-18 campaign.

Beast from the east sparks level 3 cold weather alert across Britain
It will be breezy with fresh and gusty southeasterly winds, but strong near coasts and feeling rather cold in the wind. Issued at 12:00pm today, the warning will remain in place for an entire week - until 12:00pm on Friday, March 2.

Martin said, "I couldn't tell you when he steps on the floor, if he steps on the floor". Martin says there's no timetable for his return to play.

Porter was the Naismith High School national player of the year coming out of Nathan Hale (Wash.) last season, averaging 36.2 points and 13.6 rebounds per game and leading his team to a state title. Missouri's top recruit suffered a back injury in the first game of the season and has not played since. So you have to put him in positions so he can be successful.

In a rare media appearance of his own earlier this month, Porter said he would "love" to play a few games with the Tigers before the postseason and that he's "feeling really good". That's why you go through practice situations.
