Pitino: Ware Recovering Well, Heading Home Soon
This photo of Kevin Ware walking on crutches was posted to Twitter one day after surgery.
Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware is recovering nicely, according to his coach.
Our news gathering partners at RTV 6 met Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino leaving Methodist Hospital late Monday morning. He was heading out to get lunch for his injured player. And the coach was grinning from ear to ear.
Pitino said Ware is in no pain, that's he smiling and he's okay. Pitino credited the hospital and its medical staff for moving quickly to take Ware to surgery, set his broken leg and guard against infection.
Ware will leave the hospital Tuesday to return to Louisville. He will accompany his teammates to Atlanta where they will compete in the Final Four.
