Non-collegiate players won't be in National Basketball Association draft green room this year

The Bulls attended Porter's first pro day last week and were planning to attend Friday's workout, held only for interested lottery teams.

Michael Porter Jr. has been cleared for a second pro day evaluation on Friday in Chicago. The one-and-done prospect had a back injury steal away his only year at Missouri, but he was at one point the No. 1 ranked prospect coming out of high school.

Porter Jr. had an MRI and will be evaluated again Thursday night, according to a document obtained by ESPN that was distributed to National Basketball Association teams.

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. More recently he had to cancel a group workout for teams that was due to him having hip spasms that were so bad he couldn't get out of bed.

But the Kings do have a young point guard in De'Aaron Fox and the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft with which to build around if they get the pick correct.

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.
