LeBron James’ son, Bronny James, has undergone surgery to treat a torn meniscus in his knee, reports have suggested in recent hours. The 16-year-old was expected to play with his team next March 5 but that won’t happen now. 

It’s been reported that Bronny picked the injury three weeks ago and he underwent surgery to repair the injury. This is a very serious injury but he’s expected to make a full recovery, fortunately. 

This was his sophomore season with Sierra Canyon High School but this injury has ended his season prematurely. It’s unclear how much time Bronny will be sidelined with this injury, especially knowing that the state of prep basketball in California is unknown for the rest of the teams. 

How long will Bronny James be out of action?

As stated above, the state of California is yet to announce if they will permit indoor high school competitions like basketball. That would tell how many games the teenager will miss but if they give the ‘go-ahead’, Bronny would miss this spring. 

Tarek Fattal of the Los Angeles Daily News, the injury is believed to be a season-ending one but again, that will depend on how things are handled by the state of California and the organizations in charge of high school competitions. 

Bronny is expected to make it to the NBA in a couple of years from now and this injury won’t affect his status as one of the highest-touted high school players in America right now. He’s considered a five-star-rated recruit for the class of 2023, according to 247Sports.com. 

Recently, LeBron James congratulated him for appearing in a documentary about Sierra Canyon, where he explained how hard the competition is and how much he wants to thrive with his team. 

Injuries are always tough and especially this one for a kid this age. We hope Bronny gets back at the same level or better than before and has a very successful and long basketball career, just like his father.
