(CNN) — Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware tells CNN’s Rachel Nichols that his fractured leg is “all part of God’s plan.”
Ware suffered the horrific injury in last weekend’s NCAA tournament victory over Duke University.
Louisville advanced to the Final Four with the victory.
Ware underwent successful surgery to repair the fracture and is scheduled to travel to Atlanta with his Louisville Cardinals teammates, who will face the Wichita State Shockers at 6:05 p.m. ET Saturday.
