"He is now in stable condition and no longer in ICU. We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and we will update media when there is more information," the statement continued. "LeBron and [his wife] Savannah wish to publicly send their deepest thanks and appreciation to the USC medical and athletic staff for their incredible work and dedication to the safety of their athletes."
