LeBron James shared optimistic news about his son Bronny’s recovery from recent heart surgery, expressing his hopes that Bronny will be able to join the USC basketball team this season.

Speaking to reporters at L.A.’s Media Day, the Lakers superstar revealed that his 18-year-old son is progressing remarkably well and has already started rehabilitation to return to the court with his USC teammates. Bronny had experienced cardiac arrest on July 24 and was subsequently diagnosed with a congenital heart defect that required a procedure. While the doctors believed this wouldn’t hinder his basketball career, the exact timeline for his return to the Trojans’ lineup was uncertain. However, LeBron is optimistic that his son will be back playing within a couple of months.
