Missouri Tigers freshman forward Michael Porter Jr. will not play against the Utah Utes on Thursday evening as he continues to nurse an injured hip, according to Gabe DeArmond of Rivals.com. “Mizzou’s Michael Porter Jr. is out for tonight’s game at Utah and did not travel,” said a Missouri team spokesman, via Rivals.com. “His status will be reevaluated next week. Further updates will not be available until that time.” Missouri opened the season with a 74-59 victory over Iowa State last Friday and followed that up by routing Wagner by the score of 99-55 this past Monday evening.
