Kevin Ware was discharged from Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis today and his first stop was the Yum! practice center where he was returning the Midwest Regional trophy to coach Rick Pitino

Ware has a compound fracture to his leg and will spend the next year in recovery and rehabilitation. However, his immediate concern is joining his teammates. He sent a text to the Courier-Journal telling them of his plans:

“I should be leaving around 1 to go back to school,” Ware wrote. “Then make my way to Atlanta tomorrow.”

He later tweeted:

“Back to my brothers I go”


We look forward to seeing him court-side this weekend.
