While all reports since then indicate it's not that big a deal, Porter Jr.is nonetheless a player teams will evaluate with a higher level of scrutiny. The Sacramento Kings (No. 2), Memphis Grizzlies (No. 4) and Dallas Mavericks (No. 5) are interested in Porter, and it's now unlikely he falls out of the top seven in the draft, sources tell ESPN.com.

The Kings and other teams picking in the top 10 were supposed to watch Porter workout Friday in Chicago.

Porter could go anywhere from second to ninth, if various mock drafts are to be believed.

Porter is nearly a lock to be a lottery pick in the 2018 NBA Draft later this month, and he could even rise into the top 10 or even top 5 if teams are sold on his long-term health. Teams will be on hand for medical evaluations Friday afternoon.


The NBA draft will be held on Thursday, June 21.

Porter only played in three games for Missouri as a freshman last season because of back surgery.

While he did make a comeback for the end of Mizzou's season, Porter appears to be hindered by injuries yet again. His size, fluidity and shot-making ability off the dribble reminded teams of the player who had been highly touted before the season. "But a conservative doctor could still [be concerned about] what might happen down the road".
