Louisville's Kevin Ware probably will not make his season debut for two more weeks, coach Rick Pitino said after the junior guard sat out the Cardinals' 70-48 win over College of Charleston on Saturday.
"He's still limping a little bit," Pitino said. "It's noticeable. When he gets over that, he's going to play. He's probably two weeks away from playing."
Ware is coming back from a broken right leg suffered March 31 against Duke in the NCAA tournament. His injury was a major storyline as Louisville completed the NCAA run with a win over Michigan in the championship game.
Ware began full-contact practice last weekend and played 10 minutes in an exhibition game against Pikeville on Wednesday night. He finished with six points and four rebounds.
"The Pikeville situation was just, 'Get out there, get loose,'" Pitino said. "He is playing full-blown in practice, but I still notice a limp so I don't want to play him until he's over that. It'll be pretty soon."
