Mizzou coach Cuonzo Martin leaves door open for Michael Porter Jr.'s return this weekend

Martin said in a news conference before the team's practice Thursday that Porter, who was cleared to resume basketball activities last week, would practice twice in two days and see how he felt.

He played two minutes in Missouri's season-opening win over Iowa State and scored off a putback layup before asking to come out. Porter would later have back surgery to correct the issue, which has limited his freshman campaign.

"He'll practice today and he'll practice tomorrow", Martin said to reporters Thursday. "We'll go from there".

Porter has only been through a few practices as he'll likely have to go through a few more before being comfortable to play.

Missouri men's basketball coach Cuonzo Martin told reporters that highly-touted freshman Michael Porter Jr. could play Saturday against Arkansas "if he feels good". "Today will be his third real practice".

"He knows he's not going to be at that level just from a conditioning standpoint, but as long as he feels good, I think that's the first thing and then we go from there", said Martin. "And then we go from there".

Porter's return would be a huge boost for the Tigers as they head into their regular-season finale, the SEC Tournament, and the NCAA Tournament.
