Bronny James has been given the green light to resume his athletic career -- medical officials have cleared the USC freshman to play basketball again ... just four months after suffering cardiac arrest during a workout.
A rep for LeBron James' family shared the great news on Thursday ... saying the 19-year-old hooper will have a final evaluation with USC staffers in the coming days before joining his teammates at practice next week.
The statement added once Bronny gets some practices under his belt, he will suit up for the Trojans "soon after."
"The James family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible medical team, the entire USC community, and especially the countless friends, family, and fans for their love and support," the statement said. "Fight On!"
Bronny was sidelined for USC's first seven games of the 2023-24 season ... with the team going 5-2 in his absence.
The Trojans play Gonzaga on Saturday, which means they'll have at least one more game without #6. Based on the statement, it sounds like Bronny could make his debut either December 10 against Long Beach State ... or a week later against Auburn.
TMZ Sports broke the story -- Bronny collapsed on the court during a workout on campus on July 24. It waslater determined he had "an anatomically and functionally significant Congenital Heart Defect," which caused the cardiac arrest.
Bronny has been with the team over the course of the season ... supporting his squad from the sidelines.
