Citing an anonymous source, CBSSports college basketball writer and radio personality Jon Rothstein tweeted that Missouri freshman Michael Porter Jr. "has been fully cleared for all basketball activities." Asked about the report, Missouri team spokesman Patrick Crawford texted, "Coach Martin has media availability tomorrow (Friday) at Noon." Porter was scheduled to visit his spinal surgeon in Dallas on Thursday for a follow-up on his November surgery. Last week, Tigers coach Cuonzo Martin said Thursday's doctor's visit would determine if Porter was physically cleared to resume practicing with the team.
