Missouri Tigers star Michael Porter Jr. eased any fears about his health with the 2018 NBA draft approaching Thursday night.
Porter caused some alarms when Jonathan from ESPN Givony reported that he canceled a workout for a group of NBA teams, citing a tense hip. During an interview on Monday on ESPN Radio The Will Cain Show Porter said the whole situation was " greatly exaggerated":
 "He was a little sore, so I told him [a[my agent] that his hip was hurt and he just wanted to turn it off for a couple of days." And then people took him and ran with him, saying: You know, my hip was hurt, I could not get out of bed … None of that was really true, I was just sore and wanted to take a couple of days off, so that was all it was. "
