Kevin Ware’s status remains uncertain for upcoming season
During a Monday press conference to address his upcoming Hall of Fame speech, Louisville coach Rick Pitino spoke about Kevin Ware’s status regarding his offseason.
While there will be no suspension for the Louisville guard best known for his horrific injury during the NCAA Tournament, it is also uncertain when the junior will return to the team. Between rehabbing for the injury and other factors, Ware has an uncertain time frame to return per Jody Demling of Cardinal Authority.
Pitino: "Kevin Ware is not suspended. Chane not suspended. Been having too much fun this summer to suspend anybody."— Jody Demling (@jdemling) September 2, 2013
Pitino on Ware: "It's going to be a while before he gets on the court. We're going to take our time. Not saying redshirt but take our time."— Jody Demling (@jdemling) September 2, 2013
Louisville is competing for a back-to-back championship run and doesn’t need any distractions, so if Ware is able to rehab quietly and come back and return it would be a big lift to a team that could always use an experienced and hungry player.
