After the fear, the comeback is approaching: Bronny James went down to the parquet to warm up with his teammates, in the pre-match between University of Southern California and Brown. LeBron James' eldest son is awaiting new medical tests that could give the green light to coem him back.

Last July he suffered cardiac arrest during a workout in the USC gym, he underwent surgery to treat a congenital heart malformation and until the match against Brown he had only performed individual training sessions. LeBron told about: "Today he had his first chance to warm up with the team, and he's almost ready to get back on the field." USC coach Andy Enfiled explained: "It was really nice when Bronny warmed up with his teammates.

Hopefully we can have him available for the games soon, but it's certainly not up to me to decide. We need to be patient and wait for the right moment."

What happened in July

"Bronny James went into cardiac arrest yesterday.

Medical staff were able to provide him with first aid and transport him to hospital. He is now in stable condition and out of intensive care." With these shocking words, a spokesman for the James family said LeBron James's son suffered a cardiac arrest.

The fact was happened during a workout at the University of Southern California. The 18-year-old fell ill on the field on Monday, and was immediately rescued and transported to hospital. The medical staff of the University of Southern California reacted promptly before the ambulance arrived and on the same day the young man had already left intensive care, and is out of danger.

Approximately 60 million children in the United States participate in organized sports, and cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death among young athletes. The best way to be prepared for potential cardiac arrest is to have the training and equipment needed to respond.

That equipment includes an AED, an automated external defibrillator, which was used to help save Damar Hamlin's own life
