LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bronny James joined his Southern California teammates at a preseason fan event at the Galen Center Thursday night.
James came out wearing a No. 6 jersey, dancing to the music as he made his way to center court and acknowledged the cheers by waving to the crowd and smiling.
The freshman suffered a cardiac arrest during a workout at the Galen Center in late July. His father, Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James, said earlier this month that his older son is progressing through his rehabilitation with hopes of playing for the 21st-ranked Trojans this season.
James takes classes and hangs out with his teammates. Coach Andy Enfield said recently at Pac-12 media day that the teenager is “doing fine.”
The event billed as HoopLA featured both the men’s and women’s basketball teams. Forward Brandon Gardner dove on USC quarterback Caleb Williams, who held out his cellphone to record the moment as Gardner sailed overhead.
The Trojans open the season Nov. 6 against Kansas State in Las Vegas.
