Kevin Ware suffered what is already widely considered the most horrific leg break in the history of televised sports. The 6’2″ Louisville guard jumped up to try to block a Duke shot, but came down awkwardly onto his right leg, snapping it in gruesome fashion.
Right as the injury occurred, it looked as if Ware would never step onto a basketball court again. However, he may be able to play again, but, according to SB Nation, any return will be a long time in the making.
Rick Pitino confirmed to reporters that Ware broke his leg in two places and it’d likely be at least a year recovery process. When he was taken to the hospital, the bone was sticking six inches out of his skin.
