Missouri's Michael Porter Jr. Will Return For 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. As the No. 5 seed, Mizzou will play the victor of Wednesday night's game between Georgia and Vanderbilt.

Per ESPN's Paul Finebaum, Missouri head coach Cuonzo Martin confirmed Porter said he wanted to help the team down the stretch.

He suffered an injury in his first career game in the season opener for Mizzou. "It's really how I feel, the flow of the game, and how he feels".

Asked whether he expects Geist to play Thursday, Martin said only "I hope so". He had back surgery in November.

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

That JPMorgan Chase & Co.is seemingly among the first banks Amazon has approached about the project is most likely no coincidence. By controlling how Prime customers pay, Amazon can incentivize their loyalty and closely track their purchases.

The long awaited, long rumored return of Michael Porter Jr. will happen Thursday in the SEC Tournament.

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

The Tigers have compiled a 20-11 record this season and will enter the conference tournament as the No. 5 seed after finishing 10-8 in league play.

The No. 2 overall player in the 2017 recruiting class, Porter is considered to be a lock for the National Basketball Association lottery this year.
