Porter Jr. Cancels Workout Over Major Spasms

17 June, 2018, 03:58 | Author: John Swanson
  • Knicks' brass have date set to meet with Michael Porter Jr.

Porter previously canceled his workout due to a strained hip. Before his college career began, Porter was largely considered the top prospect for the draft but that was before he lost almost his entire freshman season to injuries.

He had an MRI on his hip on Thursday, which came back clean, and will be re-evaluated by his doctors Thursday night, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

Porter, 19, did not go through physicals or the testing at the Draft Combine in late May.

Porter Jr, now 19 years of age, is a 6-foot-10 forward who's drawn loads of attention from most teams around the league. He was cleared to play just two weeks prior to his June 8 pro day.

While he did make a comeback for the end of Mizzou's season, Porter appears to be hindered by injuries yet again.

The Mavericks have been conducting individual workouts for the past week and have visited several players for their private pro day workouts. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski notes that Porter's spasms were likely caused by an increased number of workouts after surgery. His size, fluidity and shot-making ability off the dribble reminded teams of the player who had been highly touted before the season. Teams will be on hand for medical evaluations Friday afternoon.

League sources say that National Basketball Association doctors appear optimistic about his long-term prognosis, and teams will weigh his talent against the inherent risks. "No one wants to miss out on another Joel Embiid".
