Former Louisville basketball player Kyle Kuric announced on Twitter Friday that he has been released from the hospital after undergoing a third brain surgery.

The former Cardinal underwent emergency brain surgery several weeks ago after doctors discovered a brain tumor. They performed a second surgery just days later to address swelling. Family members say Kuric’s third and most recent surgery was routine.

The Kuric family has been vocal in their appreciation of the support UofL fans have expressed, sharing their gratitude on social media. Kuric himself thanked fans live via Skype during a basketball game at the KFC Yum! Center on November 21.

Kuric announced he hopes to return to the court in Spain soon, where he plays professional basketball for CB Gran Canaria.
