Bronny James suffers cardiac arrest, collapses on USC court


A spokeperson said

“Yesterday while practicing, Bronny James suffered a cardiac arrest,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “Medical staff was able to treat Bronny and take him to the hospital. He is now in stable condition and no longer in ICU. We ask for respect and privacy for the James family, and we will update media when there is more information. LeBron and Savannah wish to publicly send their deepest thanks and appreciation to the USC medical and athletic staff for their incredible work and dedication to the safety of their athletes.”

James, a four-star recruit and one of the staple pieces of USC’s top-five incoming recruiting class, signed with the Trojans this offseason. He is the No. 27 overall player in the Class of 2023 and the second-highest ranked signee in USC’s four-person recruiting class that ranks No. 4 nationally at 247Sports.

James’ collapse marks the second USC player in as many years to suffer cardiac arrest with the program after former five-star big man Vince Iwuchukwu suffered cardiac arrest last summer during an informal team practice. Iwuchukwu played in 14 games last season after being withheld following his health scare and was cleared to play in January.

Glad to hear he’s doing well!
