Bronny James Reportedly Staying in Draft After Medical Clearance

May 13, 2024

Bronny James appears to be staying in the NBA draft.

The son of Lakers star LeBron James has been medically cleared to play in the league after one year at USC. Last summer, doctors discovered a congenital heart defect after Bronny went into cardiac arrest. The NBA’s Fitness to Play panel ultimately cleared him, and James is expected to participate in all predraft activities starting with the draft combine this week in Chicago. The news of Bronny being cleared was first reported by ESPN, while the belief he will stay in the draft was reported by The Athletic.

By staying in the draft, the younger James becomes perhaps the most compelling story in what is considered a weak draft class.
