LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Kevin Ware returned back home to his
brothers Tuesday afternoon.
The Louisville Sophomore Guard was released from an
Indianapolis hospital around noon on Tuesday. He tweeted a picture with the
caption "Back to my brothers I go." Two hours later, he walked into The Yum!
Center practice facility on campus to meet with his teammates
As he walked in on one leg and crutches, WAVE 3 Reporter
Jaimie Weiss asked him how he was feeling. He responded, "Good. Thank you." His
mother Lisa Junior was right behind her son carrying the Midwest Championship
trophy. "Thanks for all your support," she stopped to say. "Thank you so much.
We appreciate it."
Once inside, each player had the opportunity to give him a
hug according to Kenny Klein, Sports Information Director. Ware's girlfriend
Brittany said everyone was crying. "It was very emotional."
She said Ware's doctors said his surgery went well. He had
very little swelling, which she's been told is a good sign. She also said that
Ware is "too eager" to return back to the basketball court.
Ware had surgery Sunday in Indianapolis after he broke his
leg in the first half of the Elite 8 NCAA Tournament matchup between Duke and
the University of Louisville at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Fan Paula Donahue was one of many who gathered outside The
Yum! Center to greet Ware and get autographs from his teammates Tuesday. She
said she and her dad were at the game in Indianapolis Sunday. "We couldn't tell
what happened. We were on the opposite side, but we saw all the players go down
on the floor. Everyone was on the phone trying to figure out what happened and
everyone went silent it was crazy."
Louisville went on to beat Duke 85 to 63.
Klein said the team leaves for the Final Four in Atlanta
Wednesday evening. While Ware tweeted he will be in Atlanta tomorrow, Klein
said it is up to Ware's doctors if he can travel with the team.
Before they go, however, Klein said Ware will speak to the
media. Ware told Klein he wants to thank everyone for the outpouring of support
himself. He's expected to hold a press conference with his family and Coach
Rick Pitino Wednesday afternoon.
