Basketball fans and non-fans alike have been following Louisville Cardinals player Kevin Ware's inspiring recovery since he suffered a horrific leg injury in March. After the junior guard suffered a compound fracture during the 2013 NCAA Tournament, few expected he would have a chance to play again. But back in April, Ware told TODAY: “I’ll be back starting next season.’’
And now, just six months later, he's dunking.
On Monday, teammate Chris Jones posted a video to his Instagram account showing Ware dunking during a practice session with other Louisville players. Adding to speculation about Ware's return, Louisville athletic director for media relations Kenny Klein tweeted last week that Ware's X-rays showed that he is expected to return to basketball activities next month.
