  • Knicks' brass have date set to meet with Michael Porter Jr.

As Amick notes, Porter canceled his workout due to a hip issue that reportedly could be tied to the back injury that caused him to miss all but three games during his lone season at Missouri.

But after Porter's scheduled workout this week was canceled, injury questions persist with the draft quickly approaching next Thursday.

Unai Emery reacts to Arsenal’s tough Premier League start
The Blues' defence of the Premier League title kicks off with one of the toughest of tests - a trip to Arsenal. Wenger chose to step down at the end of last season after nearly 22 years in charge of the north London club.

Briefly: Texas Tech and Lakeview Centennial product Zhaire Smith has visited Charlotte and Phoenix in the past couple of days, along with several other teams before that. Smith is projected to go late in the lottery or shortly thereafter.

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. For much of 2017, Porter was projected to be one of the top two picks in the 2018 National Basketball Association draft. Porter couldn't get out of bed because of muscle spasms, according to the sources. "But a conservative doctor could still [be concerned about] what might happen down the road". Mo Bamba looks like the second-coming of Joel Embiid.
