Incoming USC freshman Bronny James, son of NBA legend Lebron James, has been released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and is doing ‘great,’ according to his father.
Bronny James, a highly recruited high school basketball player who signed with USC, suffered cardiac arrest Monday while practicing at the Galen Center.
According to a statement from the cardiologist who treated Bronny James, the young basketball star was successfully treated for his cardiac arrest and is stable, thanks to “the swift and effective response by the USC athletics’ medical staff,” according to reporting from The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
“USC’s Bronny James has been discharged from hospital and is home resting after being treated for sudden cardiac arrest at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he arrived fully conscious, neurologically intact and stable,” said Dr. Merije Chukumerije, the consulting cardiologist at Cedars.
The doctor added that “although his workup will be ongoing, we are hopeful for his continued progress and are encouraged by his response, resilience and his family and community support.”
That statement came shortly after LeBron James took to social media to “thank the countless people sending my family love and prayers.”
“We feel you and I’m so grateful,” James wrote. “Everyone doing great. We have our family together, safe and healthy, and we feel your love. Will have more to say when we’re ready but I wanted to tell everyone how much your support has meant to all of us! #JamesGang.”
