Florida’s Keyontae Johnson in Stable Condition After Medical Incident

Florida’s Keyontae Johnson collapsed last weekend during a game against Florida State. An extremely scary sight, Johnson was immediately taken to the hospital where he has been ever since. 

After spending the first few days in the hospital in critical condition and in a medically induced coma, things are starting to turn around for the better.

According to a statement issued by his parents, Johnson is now in stable condition, breathing on his own and speaking with parents and doctors.

“Keyontae is in stable condition today, breathing on his own, and speaking with us and with his doctors here at UF Health. He even FaceTimed the team! We feel so much love and support from everyone, and we’re beyond grateful for the care and attention that Keyontae has received throughout these past several days.”

Johnson is averaging 16.0 points and 4.5 rebounds per game this season. Widely considered one of the better players in the country, he is projected to be a first-round pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. 

The reason for Johnson’s collapse is still unknown.
