Porter is expected to be re-evaluated by his doctor again Thursday night, league sources said.

Porter holds his workouts at Chicago, where his agency is based.

Porter could go anywhere from second to ninth, if various mock drafts are to be believed.

The Chicago Bulls, who own the No. 7 overall pick in the draft, conducted a recent medical exam on him.

Porter is nearly a lock to be a lottery pick in the 2018 NBA Draft later this month, and he could even rise into the top 10 or even top 5 if teams are sold on his long-term health. Teams also have had questions about Porter's fit as a teammate.

Porter dropping to the late lottery would be a noteworthy turn of events for a player rated so highly in his high school class.

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.

Multiple NBA teams are, as a source put it, "comfortable with the risks" that come with his injury history, seemingly grasping the sudden extent of the injury and his camp's willingness to be transparent and offer to have him checked out by each team's medical department.

Porter ceased all basketball activity after the season, focusing his efforts on rehab, sources told ESPN, after losing strength in his left leg in particular due to the injury.

The Mavericks have been conducting individual workouts for the past week and have visited several players for their private pro day workouts. Teams will be on hand for medical evaluations Friday afternoon. "There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with him right now", an National Basketball Association executive told Givony. "But a conservative doctor could still [be concerned about] what might happen down the road".
