Bronny James diagnosed with congenital heart defect, family says he will play again 'in the very near future'

Aug 26, 2023

Bronny James is on the road to recovery, and apparently might not have much longer to go.

The USC freshman and eldest son of Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James has been diagnosed with a significant, but treatable congenital heart defect, which was identified as the probable cause of the cardiac arrest he suffered last month, according to a statement from the James family.

The exact nature of the defect wasn't identified, but the family said it is confident in Bronny's full recovery and a return to basketball "in the very near future."
