LeBron James thanked his family’s supporters and said “everyone [is] doing great” in a social media post Thursday, three days after his son Bronny James went into cardiac arrest during a workout.

“I want to thank the countless people sending my family love and prayers,” the NBA superstar wrote on Twitter. “We feel you and I’m so grateful. Everyone doing great. We have our family together, safe and healthy, and we feel your love. Will have more to say when we’re ready but I wanted to tell everyone how much your support has meant to all of us!”

Bronny James, an 18-year-old freshman at Southern California, collapsed during a workout Monday and went into cardiac arrest. On Tuesday, he was out of the intensive care unit and in stable condition at a Los Angeles hospital.

A 6-foot-3 combo guard, Bronny James is the fifth-ranked player at his position and the No. 22 overall in the Class of 2023 by the 247Sports composite. He was a McDonald’s All-American.

LeBron James, the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, has said that he’d like to play at least one season in the NBA with Bronny, the oldest of the James’ three children. Bronny will be eligible for the 2024 NBA Draft.
