On Saturday, LeBron provided another update on his son, Bronny James, posting a video on Instagram of his eldest son playing the piano at home surrounded by his family.

Less than a week after news broke that Bronny had suffered cardiac arrest and collapsed during a USC practice, the video was certainly a welcome sight for anyone following this story:

Original story and updates on Bronny being discharged from the hospital follow.

Monday’s news of Bronny James’ health scare provided a shock to basketball fans. After suffering cardiac arrest while at practice for USC on Sunday, Bronny was taken to the hospital. Fortunately, the news on Monday and in the days since has been all positive.

After the news came out on Monday, LeBron and Savannah released a statement on the situation.

On Thursday morning, LeBron took to Twitter and provided an update on the situation. Along with letting everyone know about the situation, LeBron also thanked fans for the support shown over the last week.

Later in the afternoon, Bronny was discharged from the hospital. Cedars-Sinai Medical Center released a statement, stating that Bronny was fully conscious when he arrived, more continued good news on the matter.

Obviously, this a very serious situation with, unfortunately, too many examples in recent years. Damar Hamlin of the Buffalo Bills is the most notable instance of this happening in the last year, while recently drafted Thunder Keyontae Johnson collapsed during a game with Floriday in college.

Lakers fans might also remember that Shareef O’Neal had heart issues as well. He was able to eventually continue his basketball career, playing last season with the G League Ignite after working out with the Lakers spending the summer with their Summer League team.

Hopefully, all of this is a small roadblock, and Bronny is able to continue his basketball career. Much like Hamlin returned to football and O’Neal to the court, here’s to Bronny also returning to the court and one day being able to play either alongside or against LeBron, as the two have long hoped.
