Coach Cuanzo Martin - which still has Missouri headed to the NCAA Tournament, even without its best player - said Porter will come off the bench.

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 forward has an elite combination of size, length and athleticism.

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.

32 killed in Gujarat road accident
Authorities have announced financial aid of 400,000 rupees ($6,148) to the family of each of the deceased. You all know that the accident took place near Ranghola on Rajkot-Bhavnagar state highway.

Martin said that Porter will not start the game on Thursday, and his playing time will be determined based on the flow of the game and how Porter feels.

Even with his injury, many National Basketball Association draft analysts have Porter going in the high lottery because of how grand his upside is.

"I think he doesn't get enough credit in my opinion as a defender", Martin said. He hired Porter's father, Michael Porter Sr., as an assistant coach following the University of Washington's firing of Lorenzo Romar. Then Wednesday, point guard Jordan Geist missed shootaround with what a team spokesperson described as "flu-like symptoms". The Tigers will play their SEC opener against the victor of tonight's Georgia-Vanderbilt game. "For me it was always Mike's decision to play or not play".
