Pitino: Kevin Ware's Injury Has 'Perfectly Healed'

USA TODAY Sports

Expect to see Kevin Ware on the court in a Cardinal uniform when the team takes the court to begin the 2013-14 season next month.

That's the word from Rick Pitino, who said Ware received a "clean bill of health" earlier this week, and has been cleared to return to practice.

"He started working out yesterday," Pitino said. "I would say he will be able to play all out basketball by the end of October."

Ware, who suffered a horrifying leg injury in the first half of Louisville's Elite 8 win over Duke last March, had been waiting on one final x-ray to confirm that his leg had completely healed. Despite Pitino saying last month that Ware would likely not play at all during the first semester of the season, it now appears possible that he'll be ready to go when U of L kicks off the season against College of Charleston on Nov. 9.

I'm eagerly anticipating our first saucy behavior since March 31.
