Ware's surgery lasted two hours, where his right tibia was re-set and a rod was inserted after he broke his leg in a horrific injury during the Louisville Cardinals 85-63 win over the Duke Blue Devils on Sunday night.
He was taken off the court in a stretcher among player tears during a near nine-minute break in the Elite Eight game. Rick Pitino said Ware was yelling, "Win the game, win the game," despite having an open fracture of his leg.
Ware is originally from New York City but grew up in Atlanta.
