The Mavericks, like most of the other lottery teams, have a small army that includes medical staff and Michael Finley going to the Chicago workout Friday afternoon that Bartelstein has set up for teams to get a close-up look at Porter and, ostensibly, to relieve any fears of back problems that could linger from his surgery a year ago.
Porter Jr. could decide later Thursday to reschedule his Friday workout.
Givony further reports that one of the main goals of the pro day was for Porter to prove his health to National Basketball Association teams.
This draft season, that player is Michael Porter Jr. who missed most of his freshman season at Missouri following lower back surgery. Porter couldn't get out of bed because of muscle spasms, according to the sources.
Porter's agency, Priority Sports, had previously informed teams that they could bring their own trainer and doctor for a 15- to 20-minute evaluation, a unique twist.

Former Manchester United man Ronaldo and Portugal return to action on Wednesday against Morocco in Moscow (1pm). Getting a rivalry game of this importance so early in the World Cup is a nice treat for soccer fans.
The Sacramento Kings haven't been to the National Basketball Association playoffs since 2006 and have struggled to build through the draft during what has been a decade of futility.
While he did make a comeback for the end of Mizzou's season, Porter appears to be hindered by injuries yet again.
The pro day was scheduled for Friday and was supposed to be his second. Representatives of multiple teams that reviewed the information with their medical staffs say those results are encouraging.
