Michael Porter Jr. having back surgery, likely out for the season

The University of Missouri men’s basketball team announced Tuesday that Michael Porter Jr. was scheduled to have back surgery Tuesday in Dallas, and will likely miss the rest of the season.

Porter Jr. was one of the top recruits in the nation when he joined Mizzou. He played the first two minutes of the regular season, but has not seen the court since.

The team said the procedure has a recovery time of three to four months.
