ESPN reports:

Bronny James intends to play for USC this season after suffering cardiac arrest during a team workout in July, LeBron James said during Los Angeles Lakers media day on Monday.


James said Bronny, his 19-year-old son and a freshman guard with the Trojans, had undergone “successful surgery” as he continues to work toward a return to the court.

While he has not yet rejoined the Trojans, who began practice for the 2023-24 season last week, Bronny is on campus taking classes.

“Bronny is doing extremely well,” LeBron said Monday. “He has begun his rehab process to get back on the floor this season with his teammates at USC. The successful surgery that he had … he’s on the up and up. It’s definitely a whirlwind and a lot of emotions for our family this summer, but the best thing we have is each other.”
