They finished the game after this happened. FSU won 83-71.

FWIW I saw a report that the FSU coach offered to end the game, and the UF players decided to carry on. Very classy move.

Very scary. Hope the best for him.

I saw a similar thing happen back when I was in high school circa '06-'08. A basketball game at Monticello HS (I think)....a player on one of the teams fell off his chair unconscious. Basically everyone had to sit in silence for around a half an hour while they worked on him before they finally had us quietly file out of the gym. Unfortunately that kid ended up passing.

Hopefully not myocarditis caused by COVID. Reports say he was diagnosed this summer with COVID.

This seems to happen more with basketball than any other sport. Maybe I don’t see all reports but it sure seems this way.

More likely hypertrophic cardiomyopathy induced arrhythmia. Hope the kid makes it through this ordeal.

I am likely wrong but it isn't surviving this type of episode pretty rare? The fact that he is currently alive and in a medically induced coma may be a good sign? I really don't know

I saw yesterday that he was following basic commands, so that seems like a poor trend?

Per Shams:
Florida basketball star Keyontae Johnson, who collapsed on court Saturday, is now in stable condition, breathing on his own and speaking with parents and doctors.

Relieved he's doing much better, it does appear to have been myocarditis related.


Keyontae must be in God's good graces and I hope that continues to be the case. Great young man who caught a tough break. Perhaps UF did not do a very good job in clearing their players for resumption of athletic activity.

Given the length of time from his COVID diagnosis (this summer from what I gathered), this would be myocarditis from another source as I have not seen evidence of COVID leading to prolonged myocarditis

Heart inflammation can take months to subside and the high-impact exercise probably did not help. Without an MRI after his Covid diagnosis its likely unknowable.

Are you a Doctor talking from experience?

generally speaking, myocarditis itself will not cause ongoing inflammation in this fashion for an extended period of time. Usually this lasts for ~4 weeks to 3 months pending the etiology. Now, if he had COVID, dropped his EF and had heart failure with reduced ejection fraction, then yes absolutely he would be at increased risk of ventricular arrhythmias (which would be a proposed mechanism for his collapse--> ventricular tachycardia). The way I'm reading the commentary, which is from a news story and not from his doctor, is that he has acute myocarditis, which would be odd to see this far out in terms of causing ACUTE myocarditis which is where my commentary on this came from.

I haven't seen COVID lead to 6 months of ongoing myocarditis. I have seen it tank an EF and put someone into heart failure and predispose them to arrhythmia. Perhaps semantics, but I think an important point in how they're running the story saying that he has myocarditis that has been linked with COVID, but not stating that the doctors have said this case is caused by COVID. Only point really I was wanting to make is that this would, if they documented that it was from COVID, be a major impetus to push towards cancellation.

Don't see how he could have been in heart failure as the echo he had would have caught ejection fraction anomalies. Sounds like Covid myocarditis that has not fully resolved. Lets hope this is an isolated incident.

Again. as i said, I'm basing this entirely on the story that was posted which included none of that information. If you have more, I'd love to read it as it is very interesting. If they tested him during the summer when he had it (I don't know if their protocols were in place at that time), then I can see where you're coming from with that comment. Would be incredibly odd if he had COVID, had a normal echo, EKG, and troponin (what I'm assuming the lab test is) then now it's all positive again. Again, COVID is a strange beast that we're learning more about all the time, but that wouldn't be typical.

Heck of a story here, Johnson received medical clearance and has committed to K-State. Hoping


Go Keyontae Johnson!!
