Deemed one of the most exciting High School prospects in the nation, LeBron James Jr. has apparently suffered a serious knee injury that will keep him sidelined for the rest of his sophomore season At Sierra Canyon High.

Sierra Canyon’s Bronny James suffered a torn meniscus in his knee, multiple sources confirmed for the Los Angeles Daily News on Thursday. The highly-touted sophomore has had surgery, and he is expected to make a full recovery.

The injury, which happened roughly three weeks ago, is believed to be season-ending, one source said. But it might depend on the status of high school basketball in California, which has yet to permit indoor high school competition, including basketball and volleyball.

Bronny is the No. 25 prospect in ESPN’s 25 for the Class of 2023, and for good reason. Though his minutes and contributions have been erratic, he has shown flashes of his potential -- which makes sense considering his genetics and training.

The good news is, Bronny is expected to make a full recovery, which means it's only a matter of time before we see him do his thing in college and, hopefully, with his dad in the NBA.
