Kevin Ware will dress, might not play, in Louisville opener
He's been cleared to practice -- and could he actually make his way onto the court in the season opener?
Louisville junior guard Kevin Ware was medically cleared for a full return to basketball last week. And less than seven days later, Cardinals coach Rick Pitino told ESPN.com that Ware will dress for the team's opener on Nov. 9 against College of Charleston.
"He'll suit up for the first game," Pitino said to ESPN.com. "Whether he gets in or not, we'll see."
Ware was severely injured during last year's Elite Eight. He snapped his tibia after coming down to block a shot during the Cards' game against Duke. The gruesome nature of the injury on a national stage caused Ware to become a sympathetic household name, and ironically the face of the program as it went on to win the national championship.
He averaged 4.5 points and 1.8 rebounds in 16.6 minutes last season.
