Porter couldn't get out of bed because of muscle spasms, according to the sources

Expected to miss 2 months, Huerter is No. 21 in ESPN's draft analyst Jonathan Givony's most recent mock draft. A late-rising prospect on team draft boards, Huerter made a strong impression on teams at the NBA draft combine.

I'd stay far away from Porter. He's cut from the same piece of glass as Greg Oden and Harry Giles..stinks because apparently he is an extremely hard working and pleasant kid.
Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

What a rough break for Porter Jr.

It is 1 injury though, all related.  Now back injuries aren't your normal injuries, but it is still just 1 injury.  Oden had several different injuries and Giles has had multiple recurring injuries.  I wouldn't put Porter in with them, at least at this point.

Porter still having issues makes him much more likely to be available at a spot that Boston could reasonably get to, and I'd absolutely take the risk on him.  He was projected as the top player in the draft (by many) before his injury for a reason.

I read a report that the Kings are considering Porter over Doncic. It's either the truth and I have to ask ??? or it's a lie that can only be pinned on a dumpster organization like the Kings (on no other team, including the Sixers, would this be believable enough to print). The fact that this report actually exists is a direct result of the Kings being a completely incompetent franchise. Does anyone know the last time the Kings had a winning record? 05-06.

Here are the picks from then til now:
06: 19th Quincy Douby
07: 10th Spencer Hawes
08: 12th Jason Thompson
09: 4th Tyreke Evans
10: 5th Demarcus Cousins
11: 7th Bismack Bioyombo
12: 5th: Thomas Robinson
13: 7th: Ben McLemore
14: 8th: Nik Stauskas
15: 6th: Willie Cauley Stein
16: 13th Georgios Papagiannis
17: 5th: De'Aaron Fox

In 12 years, the only pick that they made that has any actual talent is DeMarcus Cousins. Count your lucky stars that you get the 2nd pick, take Doncic and pray that he doesn't leave you in 4 years.

If I was picking in the top 14 and don't have a 2nd pick to burn.... I'm staying away from Porter Jr.

I think he will to drop like no tomorrow.

Management thrown out the window, imagine the team they could have right now with those draft picks the last 12 years.
CB Draft 2016:
PG:Tony Parker/Mo Williams
SG:Alec Burks/Manu Ginobili
SF:Al Farouq-Aminu/Jared Dudley/Tony Snell

Teams have been informed that Michael Porter Jr. is feeling better and MRI returned clean, with "positive review," league sources told Yahoo. Workout assessment could be rescheduled on Friday, sources said, but decision likely comes later today.

Ummm if he falls to late first, or late lottery, then I'm trading up to draft him.

Ainge has shown he isn't afraid to draft players with injury concerns especially if they end up as a steal.

Sully produced quite well and it wasn't his back that forced him out of the league.

There is absolutely no way they should draft MPJ over Bagley or Doncic, but... Stupid is as stupid does.

He can't just leave in 4 years. That is what restricted free agency is for.

After 5 years then.  Thatís what qualifying offers are for, and Doncicís will be in the $14-15 million range for one year, which is high enough to be a viable threat to force a trade after a couple of years, or just take it and leave as an unrestricted free agent.

5 at the very least, if he is willing to play on the QO and turn down a max extension or max RFA offer. And this is all assuming Doncic turns into a superstar AND the Kings still suck.

Why would the QO be so high? Due to the increase in salary cap and that it would be the #2 pick hold?
