LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Former U of L basketball player Kyle Kuric was released from the hospital Friday after his third surgery.

Kuric just tweeted from Spain, where he plays on a professional basketball team. 

The former U of L player was originally hospitalized in early November to have a benign brain tumor removed. He then had to have a second surgery after Kuric experienced dangerous swelling in the brain.

This third operation allowed doctors to insert a plate in his head. The plate will protect part of his skull which was removed to prevent the swelling from the first surgery. 

Kuric remains on the roster on the team in Spain. No word yet on when he might return to the court.
