According to a family statement cited by multiple media reports, the 18-year-old was treated at the scene before he was transported to the hospital. Those same reports say that James is no longer in the intensive care unit and is in stable condition.
The family spokesperson said the family is requesting privacy and that updates will be made available in time.
"LeBron and Savannah wish to publicly send their deepest thanks and appreciation to the USC medical and athletic staff for their incredible work and dedication to the safety of their athletes," the spokesperson said.
Another incoming freshman USC basketball player was hospitalized last summer after suffering a cardiac arrest. Vincent Iwuchukwu spent several days recovering at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after collapsing during an informal team practice on July 1, 2022.
This is a breaking story and will be updated as details are released.
