On Wednesday, Cuonzo Martin, Mizzou's head coach, told ESPN's Paul Finebaum that his star freshman would return for the SEC Tournament.

But Porter has been ahead of schedule in his recovery and has now been practicing with the team for a week.

He suffered an injury in his first career game in the season opener for Mizzou.

Missouri will play the victor of Vanderbilt and Georgia in the SEC Tournament quarterfinals.

"It had to be completely up to him to say coach I'm ready to go, I feel good about it", Martin said. Porter's ability to put the ball in the basket from anywhere helped create all the notoriety, and that's what made the news of his surgery so upsetting.

BJP's blind quest for power superseding stability of northeast: Congress
The BJP knows this better than others, and as in Assam has not let any local party come in the way of pushing its agenda forward. But it would be a mistake to read into the northeastern election results a foregone verdict in favour of the BJP in 2019.

"Unless Mike says otherwise, that's what it is", Martin said.

Porter has the ability to score at all three levels and if he proves his back is 100 percent healthy, he automatically will be in the conversation to be the No. 1 overall pick along with Deandre Ayton and Luka Doncic.

CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein reported on February 22 that Porter received full clearance from doctors to resume basketball activities.

After finishing the regular season with a 20-11 record, Missouri is now projected as a No. 8 seed in the NCAA tournament by ESPN's Joe Lunardi.
