Tigers coach Cuonzo Martin told reporters Wednesday that Porter would not start against the victor of Thursday night's Georgia-Vanderbilt game.

The 6-foot-10 Porter, the top prep prospect in the country last season, played in only two minutes of the Tigers' season opener before he was injured.

Mizzou fans wanting to see Michael Porter Jr. back on the court will get their wish.

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

"It had to be completely up to him to say coach I'm ready to go, I feel good about it", Martin said. It was about how he felt...for me it was always Mike's decision to play or not play.

Who wants to tell me congratulations? McDormand replies before she walks away. "Look around, everybody. Authorities say the Oscar was allegedly stolen during the Governors Ball after party.

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

Porter was medically cleared in February and has practiced with the team sporadically since.

NBA Draft analysts still project Porter to be a lottery selection.

Missouri still had a successful season, even with the loss of Porter, posting a 20-11 regular season record and finishing with a winning conference record for the 1st time since 2012-2013.

Fifth-seeded Missouri (20-11) faces the victor of Wednesday's Georgia-Vanderbilt game at 2:30 p.m. Thursday at Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
