After Kevin’s horrific leg injury, everyone is asking: will he ever play basketball again? Dr. Glashow, co-chief of sports medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively if Kevin will ever be back on the court. Read on for details!
After Louisville sophomore Kevin Ware broke his right leg during a game against Duke University, the basketball player was rushed to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery. After a successful surgery, Kevin is now focused on healing, but what does the future for his career hold?
Kevin Ware’s Basketball Career: Will He Ever Play Again?
Dr. Glashow, the co-chief of sports medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that not only will Kevin play basketball again, but he could be healed in time for next season!
“I think this will take about six months to recover, and he could be back on the court that quick,” Dr. Glashow explains. “The rod may or may not be removed from his leg. They will probably keep it in for a year.”
Dr. Glashow also adds that Kevin’s game may be totally unaffected by the injury! “It is very possible that he will play at the same level that he has been at. A complete knee surgery would have been much more damaging and long lasting. So, even though he had a very gory injury, it is better in the long run.”
Louisville Basketball Player’s Recovery
Although Kevin will be able to play basketball again, he has a long road to recovery ahead of him before he’ll be back on the court. After he’s recovered from surgery, Kevin’s next step will be physical therapy, according to Dr. Glashow.
“He will probably be in immediate physical therapy to move ankle and knee,” Dr. Glashow says. “In this new picture he will be putting a little weight on it. And he is very lucky the fracture is not at joint, that would be much more problematic and this is a clean break.”
