Missouri's Porter Jr. out for season

The University of Missouri announced that Porter is scheduled to have back surgery and will likely miss the remainder of the season.

Missouri will be without top freshman Michael Porter Jr. for the third straight game when the Tigers play Emporia State, a Division II school, at 7 Monday night. It was characterized as a hip injury when he missed last game and went to see a specialist.

The typical timetable to recovery from the surgery is three to four months, which will enclose the rest of this season.

In a statement, Mizzou coach Cuonzo Martin said that, "Our focus has been on Michael's well being just like every other player in our locker room".

Crocodile caught on Hollywood beach released at undisclosed location
Video footage showed the croc lying on the shore line, its head facing toward the sky as waves rolled over its body. The crocodile turned a routine day at the beach into a public spectacle Monday.

"I really appreciate the support of my family & program as I begin this process", Porter said in a statement.

Porter has only played two minutes this season, and reportedly suffered the injury during warmups of the team's season opener. "I'm thankful for the kind words and messages I've received from fans".

The news is devastating for an up-and-coming Mizzou basketball program. "I can not wait to be completely healthy and playing the game I love, once again".

In Missouri's game against Wagner last week, Porter was not on the bench and instead watched the game from the locker room. We're preparing now for a trip that is a tremendous opportunity. Since we are at the end of November any possible return wouldn't be until March, and by that time there's no point for a guy that will most certainly be a lottery pick in next years NBA Draft.
