(Newser) – Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo is still in the hospital following last weekend’s tour bus crash, but his condition’s improving, and the doctors say he’ll probably be released in the next few days. “Yesterday Rivers finally made it onto his feet for the first time since the crash, going on two hospital hallway walks with the aid of a walker,” said the band’s website. But returning home to LA won’t be easy. Doctors say “he ain’t getting on a plane anytime soon… too risky to his lung.”
