Porter Jr.'prepared to play in SEC tournament Cuonzo Martin says

He has not played since Missouri's November 10 season-opener against Iowa State, a game in which he played just two minutes.

Porter's return will make Missouri a risky team in the NCAA Tournament.

Porter will not start Thursday's matchup with the Georgia-Vanderbilt victor and Martin said he'd be surprised if the freshman plays 30 minutes according to ESPN's Alex Scarborough.

"It had to be completely up to him to say coach I'm ready to go, I feel good about it", Martin said.

A few minutes before, when three Missouri players took the podium, it did not sound like they knew Porter was planning to play.

Porter was medically cleared in February and has practiced with the team sporadically since. They will take on the victor of tonight's game between Georgia and Vanderbilt tomorrow afternoon at 3:25pm ET. This season, Martin has coached his squad to a 20-11 record that includes a 10-8 mark in conference play.
