  Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware has taken the next step physically and psychologically in his quest to suit up for the Cardinals in time for next season according to a report from CBS Sports via Eric Crawford of WDRB.com. Ware suffered a gruesome injury when his right tibia snapped in two during the Cardinals’ Elite Eight victory over Duke, on March 31st. The Louisville player recently announced on Twitter that he was out of his cast and was able to stand on both feet. Im sorry yall im standing on my two feet on my own again now. — Kevin Ware (@_billionairebev) June 1, 2013 Now according to Crawford’s report, Ware was seen in the Louisville practice gym shooting jumpers. That’s right. Jump shots. They weren’t the high-flying variety he showed in his emergence as a major part of U of L’s national championship team late in the season, but they were shots with a little bit of bounce. … Ware can’t yet do much running or cutting. But trainer Fred Hina has challenged Ware to push his healing broken leg as much as he can in rehab. The injury is said to have a 6-month recovery time but Ware intends on making it back in time for the start of the new season which commences in November. If he’s able to do it, then that will just add to what has already been an inspirational journey that started off in the most dire of circumstances.
