Bronny James Has Been Cleared To Play Basketball Again
In July, Bronny James collapsed on the court during practice at USC and suffered a cardiac arrest.
He was then rushed to the hospital where he quickly was reported to be in stable condition and no longer in the ICU.
Only a couple of days later, Bronny was already discharged from the hospital. Dr Merije Chukumerije, a consulting cardiologist for Bronny James, said in a statement issued by the hospital that James was “successfully treated for a sudden cardiac arrest” thanks to “the swift and effective response by the USC athletics’ medical staff” after the incident Monday.
While LeBron James Sr. shared an update on his son Bronny at Lakers Media Day in October, saying that Bronny is recovering well from the incident and expected to play for USC this season, there now is another huge positive update on James Jr.
Bronny will return to practice with the team next week and then be available to play in games for USC.
“The James family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible medical team, the entire USC community, and especially the countless friends, family and fans for their love and support. Fight On!”
