The five-star freshman didn’t play last night.
Michael Porter Jr., a five-star freshman and the potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, didn’t play for Missouri on Monday night.
The preseason All-American is dealing with some kind of leg injury, but the Tigers didn’t divulge anything else.
“I don’t know how serious it is,” head coach Cuonzo Martin told reporters. “It’s hard for me to say that. But I think it’s day to day. That’s the best assessment for me to say right now: It’s day to day.”
Porter, the No. 2 overall recruit in the 2017 class per 247Sports’ Composite Rankings, wasn’t sitting on the bench with his teammates during the 99-55 victory over Wagner. He also sat for most of Friday’s season opener.
MU Athletic spokesman said Michael Porter Jr. is not on the team bench because it's easier on his leg to sit in the locker room.#Mizzou
