Ware underwent surgery on Sunday to repair a compound fracture in his right leg that shocked and saddened players and spectators during the first half of Louisville's 85-63 Midwest Regional victory over Duke on Sunday. The horrific injury occurred when Ware landed after a leaping attempt to block a shot.
Ware is an Atlanta-area native and hopes to travel with the team to the Final Four on Wednesday. He's awaiting final clearance from doctors to make the trip.
Before leaving the hospital on crutches, Ware posted a picture on Twitter and wrote: "Back to my brothers I go."
