According to Louisville Sports Information Director Kenny Klein, junior guard Kevin Ware received some good news regarding his injured leg. Klein reports that Ware is expected to be back on the court and resume full time basketball activities in four weeks.
There has been a lot of talk about Louisville’s dynamic backcourt for the 2013-14 season, but Ware’s name is rarely mentioned. A lot of that has to do with his recovery and how long it’ll take him to get back where he was prior to the gruesome injury.
Unfortunately for Ware, he was playing the best basketball of his career at the time of the injury. He was finally starting to understand his role and was becoming a solid play maker. With the back-court loaded this year, I think Ware’s role will be similar to last year. He’s a unique player with his length, athleticism and speed.
