In a two-hour surgery, Ware's broken tibia was straightened and a rod was inserted into it, according to a statement from Kenneth Klein, senior associate athletic director for media relations at the university.
A photo posted on the Internet shows Ware's jubilant teammates holding up his jersey as they celebrated their win over Duke, which sent them to the tournament's Final Four this coming weekend in Atlanta. Another showed Ware in his hospital bed, holding the trophy his teammates brought to him.
Ware has been touched by the public support.
"I'm a very quiet guy, so a lot of this is really new to me, you know," Ware said. "I really just appreciate everybody and the support I have right now.
"I'll be fine, but (we've) still got to win this championship," he added.
His doctors asked Ware whether he had previous shin problems, but he told them he's never had such issues.
Louisville will take on Wichita State at 6:05 p.m. ET on Saturday, with the winner advancing to the national championship game Monday.
School officials told CNN that Ware will be able to travel with his teammates when they fly to Atlanta on Wednesday night.
