Bronny James, the teenage son of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, received news crucial to his career from his doctors.
The 19-year-old basketball player collapsed during a training session with USC at Galen Center back in July after suffering a cardiac arrest.
Just four months after the incident that nearly cost the young man his life, Bronny was given an all-clear by his doctors and allowed to resume his basketball career.
“Bronny James is now cleared by his doctors for a full return to basketball. Bronny will have a final evaluation with USC staff this week, resume practice next week, and return to games soon after,” the James family happily announced.
“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!”
Following the shock medical emergency, Bronny has been recovering step by step to ensure he didn’t push the limits. Following weeks of individual training, the teen was finally able to join his USC teammates for a warmup.
“It was great. He went through warmups with the team. He’s a big part of our program and our team. He’s a terrific teammate,” USC coach Andy Enfield said.
“We look forward to hopefully one day getting him back on the court but when that day is, that’s not my decision. We’re going to patient and go through the process.”
And while the rising star couldn’t join his teammates on the court in their recent games, he was spotted cheering them on from the bench during every single match.
