Louisville Guard Kevin Ware is Dunking Again (VIDEO)

He’s working his way back…

Kevin Ware, the Louisville guard who suffered a gruesome leg injury during the NCAA tournament last March, is dunking during practice.

Ware fell awkwardly during the team’s Elite Eight matchup against Duke, which caused a compound fracture in his right leg and led to the bone sticking out of his leg (WARNING: video NSFW).

Prior to is injury, Ware was averaging 4.5 points and 1.8 rebounds in 16.6 minutes per game for the eventual National Champions. He was also the team’s top three point shooter, knocking down 40.5 percent of his shots from behind the arc.

From Today:

On Monday, teammate Chris Jones posted a video to his Instagram account showing Ware dunking during a practice session with other Louisville players.

As for Ware’s future, it appears that the rising junior guard will be able to play during the team’s 2013-14 campaign. Ware had said that he plans on making a full recovery, and according to a tweet from Kenny Kline, the Senior Associate Athletic Director for Media Relations at Louisville, Ware will be ready to go in about a month.

    Really happy for him, that was one of the most gruesome injuries I’ve ever seen. Seeing injuries like that really get in your head, I had a game just a few hours after seeing it and I felt like tip-toeing around all game. Can’t imagine how hard it must have been for his team-mates to keep playing.

    Awesome to see this, much respect to Ware. I think I’d just be content with walking after suffering that injury.

    i’m sure he did good job. but as gross as the injury looked, as far as recovery it’s less serious than tearing a crucial tendon or ligament

  • Gusbus

    Actually you might be right, I recentley broke my tibia and tore my patella tendon and I need to do more recovery for my tendon then my bone

  • bike

    Bet he never takes off or lands on one foot ever again.
