Kevin Ware takes to Twitter to talk recovery

Miller, Michael (501534472)

After suffering a horrific compound fracture to his right leg in Louisville’s Elite Eight win over Duke, many weren’t sure if sophomore guard Kevin Ware would ever play basketball again. But thanks to a spirited rehabilitation effort that has also included a Louisville National Championship and a trip to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, Ware appears to be ready to proceed with his basketball career after taking to Twitter for an informal Q & A with his followers regarding the injury.

On Saturday morning, Ware began tweeting and sent out an update on his current status:

Im sorry yall im standing on my two feet on my own again now.

The initial tweet started a flurry of social media activity for Ware, as the sophomore began answering comments -- good and bad -- from his followers on everything from his recovery to fans challenging him to a game once he is fully healed.

Some other interesting revelations from Ware’s candid afternoon on Twitter: He’s no longer on crutches, believes he’ll be fully recovered by October, and -- like most of America -- prefers the first installment in the Friday series because he enjoys Chris Tucker’s character Smokey.

Obviously there is a lot of time between now and October in what is sure to continue to be a grueling rehabilitation for Ware as Louisville begins it’s title defense, but Ware at least seems to be in a positive mindset and recovering at a solid rate.
