Michael Porter Jr. cancels pro day because of hip injury

18 June 2018

Michael Porter Jr. started shooting off draft boards before his biggest concern reared its ugly head.

The Kings and other teams picking in the top 10 were supposed to watch Porter workout Friday in Chicago.

ESPN's second-rated prospect, Slovenian Luka Doncic, will not be attending the draft unless his Real Madrid season in the Spanish ACB league ends with a playoff loss on Tuesday.

Phoenix Suns won't deal No. 1 pick for Kawhi Leonard
In the 2016-17 season, Leonard averaged 25.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 steals per game. They seem to be poised for just about anything right now, and acquiring Kawhi Leonard is no different.

Porter could potentially rise even higher than that if workouts go well.

Porter being considered as a top five pick truly displays the potential teams see in him, especially without proving himself to be a dominant college basketball player this past season.

A back injury revealed in late November derailed Porter's freshman season, forcing him to have microdiscectomy surgery on his L3 and L4 spinal disks.

Romania welcomes the agreement on Republic of Macedonia's new name
Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev has also hailed the deal, which was announced on Tuesday, calling it a "historic solution". Later, around 2,000 people opposing the agreement demonstrated in central Skopje, promising to continue demonstrating daily.

Had he made it thru his entire freshman campaign without injury, there's a good chance Porter would be a lock for the top pick in the National Basketball Association draft but now there's doubt that he'll go with the first overall selection.

The workout is planned to be rescheduled, but there's no way to tell how another injury will impact Porter's stock.

Rumors are going to continue heating up with the NBA Draft approaching on June 21.
