Bronny James suffered a torn meniscus in his knee at a practice earlier this month and had surgery to repair it, reports suggest.
According to the Los Angeles Daily News and ESPN, Bronny had surgery to repair the damage and is expected to make a complete recovery.
The injury happened about three weeks ago and is believed to be season-ending, according to the report. That could change depending on the status of high school basketball in California, which has not yet permitted indoor competition, including basketball and volleyball.
James, the son of the Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James, told followers on Twitch this week that he had suffered a knee injury. James is a sophomore at Sierra Canyon School, which hasn’t played any official games this season due to the COVID-19 pandemic but has plans to play a spring basketball season.
James, who is listed at 6-foot-2 and plays guard, averaged 4.1 points in 15 minutes a game as a freshman for the national power. He played in all 34 games.
The Los Angeles Daily News first reported that Bronny James required surgery for the injury.
