GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida Gators forward Keyontae Johnson is now in stable condition, according to the team.
“Keyontae is in stable condition today, breathing on his own and speaking with us and with his doctors here at UF Health,” Gators Men’s Basketball team wrote in a press release Tuesday.
The Southeastern Conference preseason player of the year is being treated at UF Health in Gainesville.
University officials said Johnson spoke with his teammates on FaceTime.
“We feel so much love and support from everyone and we’re beyond grateful for the care and attention that Keyontae has received through these past several days,” the team said in a statement.
