Bryce James, the son of NBA superstar LeBron James, suffered a scary arm injury during Campbell Hall’s game against Tualatin, who are back to back Oregon State Champions. The incident happened in the second half, with Campbell Hall trailing by nine points, 59-68.
How Did Bryce James Injure is Arm?
In only his second game with Campbell Hall, Bryce James drove to the basket and attempted a double clutch layup, but was fouled hard by a Tualatin defender. He lost his balance and landed awkwardly on his forearm and elbow area, which left him writhing in pain.
He stayed on the floor for several minutes clutching his arm, before being helped up by his teammates and coaches. You could hear Bryce yell “f***” after the loud sound of his arm hitting the ground.
Did Bryce James Break His Arm?
Bryce was unable to shoot his free throws, so another player substituted for him to take the shots. Bryce James reportedly headed to the locker room with a trainer. The video of Bryce James’ arm injury quickly went viral on social media, as fans expressed their concern and support for the young player.
Some people who speculated that he might have an elbow injury compared it to how Gary Payton II fractured his elbow during the playoffs in 2022. However, there has been no official update or diagnosis on the extent of his injury or his recovery timeline. However, Bryce James didn’t break his arm, because he would later return to the game, but didn’t have much of an impact.
Bryce James is considered one of the most intriguing prospects in his class based on potential, and his lineage of being Lebron’s son. At 6 feet 6 inches he’s already 4 inches taller than his older brother Bronny who stands at 6’2″.
As aforementioned this was Bryce James’ second game with Campbell Hall, where he was looking for a fresh start, and more playing time to develop his game. Hopefully the injury ends up being nothing serious that flares up down the line, so he doesn’t miss anytime on the court.
