Kevin Ware Is Back On The Court, Taking Jump Shots

Andy Lyons

In news that is a bit hard to process given how recent his injury feels (and was), Kevin Ware is back on the court taking shots and planning to be ready to go once practice rolls around in October.

Despite suffering the most horrific leg injury I think any of us have ever seen just over two months ago, Ware has been walking without the aid of crutches for a couple of weeks now.

Ware can't yet do much running or cutting. But trainer Fred Hina has challenged Ware to push his healing broken leg as much as he can in rehab. Ware said a month ago that he planned to hold nothing back in terms of pushing it to heal.

"I'm not going to do anything to jeopardize it," he said. "But I'm not going to take it easy, either."

U of L coach Rick Pitino said Ware is making good progress.

"Kevin's doing great," Pitino said. "It's pretty amazing."

The moment he takes the floor inside the KFC Yum Center for the first time this season is going to be an incredible scene.
