“I want to thank the countless people sending my family love and prayers. We feel you and I’m so grateful. Everyone doing great. We have our family together, safe and healthy, and we feel your love. Will have more to say when we’re ready; but I wanted to tell everyone how much your support has meant to all of us!” Mr. James wrote on Thursday.

Bronny committed to playing for the USC Trojans beginning next season. He is expected to be drafted into the NBA within the next few years.

James’s comments marked the first statement from the family since the unfortunate incident.
