(WXYZ) - We are getting our first pictures of University of Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware since he was injured in yesterday's NCAA Tournament game against Duke.
The photos are from the Twitter account of Kenny Klein (@KKcards), the Senior Associate Athletic Director for Media Relations/SID at the University of Louisville.
They show Ware standing on crutches following surgery and being visited by his coach Rick Pitino, who brought him the trophy from the Regional Championship.
Ware has reportedly said he hopes to be out of the hospital in time to make the trip to Atlanta to watch his team compete in this weekend's Final Four.
