    Statement from #Mizzou:

    Michael Porter, Jr. will undergo surgery on Tuesday, Nov. 21, in Dallas, Texas. The procedure, a microdiscectomy of the L3-L4 spinal discs, has a projected recovery time of three-four months and will likely cause him to miss the remainder of the season.
    Bye bye to that #1 overall.

    Damn, that sucks. I can't wait until Philly drafts him and he doesn't play his rookie year until he's 25.

    If he is 100% recovered, he should try to play a year of college ball next season. I think that will go a long way to prove that he is still a top player. Teams would have to hesitate to draft him without seeing him play for over a year.

    Sucks because I really wanted to see his game vs better competition.

    That is what crossed my mind.

    This really sucks, was looking forward to seeing him play.

    As for his draft stock, noone is going to use the #1 pick on a player coming off major back surgery, especially when that player has zero college experience. But he'll have major upside as a ~4th pick for a team willing to take a chance.

    I'd go back to school. If he ends up getting picked out of the Top 10 then he's losing millions.

    God, I hope so.

    He is playing today against Georgia. Should be interesting to see how many minutes he gets.

    I wonder where his draft stock will be at in a month.
