There’s no doubt that Kevin Ware is taking his injury like a champ. After mangling his leg during Sunday night’s Louisville versus Duke NCAA tournment game, Ware was immediately taken into surgery where he had a bone reset and a rod inserted in his leg. The bang-up was so graphic that CBS has declared they won’t replay the footage. To the relief of many, a photo was soon released that the Louisville guard was on crutches. Ware then took to Twitter Tuesday (April 2) to let his well-wishers know that he was heading back to the team.
I couldn’t be anymore happier to see my brothers man. Unexplainable!!

The Atlanta native also tweeted Magic Johnson, thanking him for his phone call. Though Ware won’t be back on the court till after rehabilitation, he’ll be rooting on his team in his hometown for their Final Four showdown against the Wichita State Shockers on April 6.
