Bronny James, son of NBA star LeBron James, has been discharged from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after going into cardiac arrest.
In a statement from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Bronny has recovered from a sudden cardiac arrest that occurred on Monday (July 24) morning.
“Mr James was cared for promptly by high-trained staff and has been discharged home, where he is resting,” wrote Dr Merije Chukumerije, who was thankful for the swift response of other medical staff.
I want to thank the countless people sending my family love and prayers. We feel you and I’m so grateful. 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…— LeBron James (@KingJames) July 27, 2023
“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.”
His father, the all-time leading scorer in NBA history, also released a statement on Twitter that was full of gratitude.
“I wanted to thank the countless people sending my family love and prayers,” he wrote.
“Everyone is doing great. We have our family together, safe and healthy and we feel your love.”
Although LeBron didn’t go into much specific detail he promised he’d have more to say 'when we’re ready'.
“But I just wanted to tell everyone how much your support has meant to all of us!" he added.
His message was met with love from fans to Nike and the NBA wishing his son a speedy and full recovery.
LeBron’s team, the Los Angeles Lakers, shared the post saying 'All love to the James Fam' followed by purple and yellow hearts.
LeBron and wife Savannah James have three kids, Bronny, their eldest, and also Bryce and Zhuri.
Earlier this year in May, Bronny had announced he would be playing basketball at the University of Southern California.
In previous interviews, LeBron has expressed a desire to play with his son in the NBA next year, saying he won’t end his career until it happens.
“I need to be on the floor with my boy,” LeBron told ESPN. “Either in the same uniform or a match up against him.”
“I would love to do the whole Ken Griffey Sr. and Jr. thing.
"That would be ideal for sure, being with him and spending a full year with him in the same uniform.”
Ken Giffey and his son were the first father and son to play on the same MLB team, the Seattle Mariners, at the same time.
“That would be the icing on the cake," he said.
