Bronny James, son of Lakers star LeBron James was discharged from the hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest during USC’s basketball practice on July 24.

The 18-year-old was treated on-scene and then rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he spent a stint in the intensive care unit, before being stable enough to be placed in general care.

“Thanks to the swift and effective response by the USC athletics’ medical staff, Bronny James was successfully treated for a sudden cardiac arrest,” a statement from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center read. “He arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center fully conscious, neurologically intact and stable. Mr. James was cared for promptly by highly-trained staff and has been discharged home, where he is resting. 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.”

Days later, LeBron James gave an update on Bronny, thanking fans for their concern and support.

“I want to thank the countless people sending my family love and prayers,” James said in a July 27 social media post. “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 support has meant to all of us.”

James then posted a video of his son at home and playing the piano, giving an indication that he is well and saying, “We’re here right with you every step of the way.”

It is not clear if and when the highly-touted USC basketball star can resume team activities.
