Missouri forward Jontay Porter re-tore his ACL Saturday while rehabbing in Colorado, Mizzou Athletics confirmed to KOMU.

Porter was working to come back from the same injury, which sidelined him for the entirety of the 2018 - 2019 season. It is unclear as of yet how this may affect his decision to declare for the NBA Draft in June.

Porter was a standout for Missouri as a freshman, winning SEC Sixth Man of the Year and Co-Freshman of the Year.

Injuries are nothing new for the Porter family. His older brother Michael only played three games for Missouri because of a bad back. And sisters Cierra and Bri also suffered from injuries for the Missouri women's team.
