In a surprising turn of events, Michael Porter Jr. has cancelled the workout that had been scheduled for Friday in Chicago. The Sacramento Kings were one of the teams expected to attend, and Porter was going to be evaluated by a back specialist. The cancellation was reported by Kevin O’Connor if The Ringer.

It’s difficult to know what to make of this right now. Does Porter have a promise? Is his back a bigger concern and his camp didn’t want the medical evaluation to happen? Is it simply being rescheduled? We have no clue.

Without the medical examination, it’s difficult to imagine the Kings taking Porter with the second pick.

We’ll continue to update this story as more information becomes available.

Update: Sam Amick is reporting that the workout will be rescheduled. It remains unclear why the workout was cancelled.
