21-Year-Old Basketball Player Keyontae Johnson in Critical Condition After Collapsing on Court

Keyontae Johnson is in critical condition.

The 21-year-old University of Florida basketball star is in the hospital after collapsing on court mid-game, TMZ reported Sunday (December 13).

During the Gators vs. Seminoles game, in the middle of timeout, Keyontae was celebrating from the sidelines when he walked onto the court and fully collapsed. His teammates began screaming for help, and he was taken off court via stretcher and rushed by ambulance to the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

Over the summer, he tested positive for COVID-19, and one of the side effects was myocarditis, or inflammation of the heart muscle. He is in critical, but stable condition. All of these celebrities were also diagnosed with coronavirus.

Our best thoughts are with Keyontae Johnson for a full recovery.
