Some positive news to share. Florida Gators basketball star Keyontae Johnson is now in stable condition after collapsing on the court Saturday during a game against Florida State. Johnson is also said to be breathing on his own, which is a great sign. He’s not out of the woods yet, but his situation looks to be improving.

Florida tweeted out the following statement from Keyontae’s parents.

“Keyontae is in stable condition today, breathing on his own and speaking with us and with his doctors here at UF Health.”

Going from a medically-induced coma to speaking with doctors is a giant step towards his recovery. We’re looking forward to even bigger steps ahead for Keyontae. Best of luck.

  1. Scary stuff. I’m old enough to remember when this happened to Hank Gathers of Loyola Marymount(1990 or 1991). He collapsed after a dunk, and passed a away a day or two later. He was leading the country in points and rebounds when it happened. A sure-fire NBA player cut down in the middle of a game. It was a shocker, especially locally here in LA. His All American teammate, Bo Kimble, shot his first free throw of each NCAA tourney game left-handed, made all four. The team made it to the Elite Eight without the best player in the country.
