LeBron James’ son, Bronny, underwent knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus earlier this month, according to multiple reports.
Bronny reportedly suffered the injury in practice about three weeks ago. James currently plays for Sierra Canyon in Los Angeles, thought high school basketball has not yet been premit to resume.
James first mentioned his injury while streaming on Twitch earlier this month, but did not specify how it happened.
Sierra Canyon has started competing as a club basketball team with high school sports shut down, per the report. LeBron James, however, won’t be ready to return by then.
James, a 6-foot-2 guard, averaged 4.1 points and 15 minutes in all 34 games last season as a freshman at Sierra canyon. He’s currently listed as the No. 24 overall player in the Rivals.com Class of 2023, and has reported interest from Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina and UCLA — along with an offer from North Carolina Central.
Obviously, a couple years will pass by before Bronny is likely ready to make a decision on the next steps past high school. However, the program would benefit on and off the floor from James deciding to spend his college days in Durham.
While the prediction is only based on the prognostication of two analysts, it is still noteworthy.
California has yet to clear high schools for indoor sports. Highly touted prep star Bronny James has reportedly had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee.
James, the son of Lakers star forward LeBron James, plays for Sierra Canyon, a private school in the Los Angeles suburb of Chatsworth.
