Florida basketball player Keyontae Johnson in stable condition, breathing on his own, parents say

Florida men’s basketball forward Keyontae Johnson has been upgraded to stable condition, and he is now able to breathe on his own and speak, according to a statement released by UF but attributed to Johnson’s parents, Nika and Marrecus Johnson. 

“We feel so much love and support from everyone, and we’re beyond grateful for the care and attention that Keyontae has received throughout these past several days,” the statement read. “We will continue to share updates about Keyontae’s health and progress. We have seen how much people love and care for him.”

Earlier Monday, Johnson was moved from Tallahassee, Florida, to Gainesville by helicopter to University of Florida’s Shands Hospital, where he remained under evaluation.

Johnson, 21, collapsed during the first half of Florida’s contest at Florida State and needed to be removed from the court on a stretcher. He was unresponsive before being taken to Tallahassee Memorial hospital, where Johnson was placed in a medically induced coma, Johnson’s grandfather, Larry DeJarnett, said in a phone call with USA TODAY.
