Michael Porter Jr. and teammates

Missouri is expecting star freshman Michael Porter Jr.to play Thursday when the Tigers will play their first game of the SEC Tournament against the victor of Wednesday's Georgia-Vanderbilt contest.

Porter was on the court for just two minutes in Mizzou's season opener against Iowa State in November before he left with a hip injury.

"He could play 20-25 minutes", Martin said. "I feel good about it'". The school later announced that he would undergo spinal surgery, a procedure believed to be season-ending. It had to be completely up to him, to say, 'Coach, I'm completely ready to go. Porter had suggested during the season that he would work to return, and that's set to happen for Thursday's game against the victor of Georgia-Vanderbilt. "For me it was always Mike's decision to play or not play".

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

On Thursday, Mizzou will either play Georgia or Vanderbilt, depending on the result of the first-round game. At the end of Feburary, Porter Jr., was cleared for basketball activities.

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.
