KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Missouri Tigers freshman Michael Porter Jr. could be returning to the lineup, according to a report from ESPN's Dick Vitale. 

Porter was injured in the first game of the year against Iowa State. 

Vitale said on ESPN's broadcast Tuesday night that Tigers head coach Cuonzo Martin told him "don't be surprised" if Porter plays again this season. 

Vitale also reported Porter Jr. was dunking after a shootaround. 

Porter Jr., the top prep prospect in the country last season, played in only two minutes of the season-opening win over Iowa State before missing the last three games with the injury.

He had surgery on his lower back.
