Florida Gators star Keyontae Johnson has been released from the hospital. This is a Christmas miracle.

It has been two weeks since Johnson collapsed on December 12th. When the Gators were playing the Florida State Seminoles, Johnson collapsed early in the game.

At the time, when he went to the hospital in Tallahassee, Florida, he was listed as critical but stable condition.

“Today is a great day!,” the statement from the Johnson family said. “Keyontae is being released from the hospital. We continue to be amazed at the pace of his recovery and look forward to spending Christmas together as a family.

“Along with so many well wishes and prayers, we’ve understandably gotten questions about the cause and extent of Keyontae’s illness. As much as everyone involved wants firm answers, the process to draw definitive conclusions continues, and we ask for patience as the medical professionals continue their work. We are committed to sharing not only updates on Keyontae but also any information we think could help others. When we have that, we will share it. Until then, we continue to be grateful for the care and support Keyontae is receiving.”

It is not clear why Johnson collapsed in the game. While that information has not been released, he is still in his recovery from this incident.

Florida does not return to the court until December 30th. They play the Vanderbilt Commodores to begin their 2020-21 Southeastern Conference play.

After their Wednesday night’s game against the Commodores, the Gators do not return to the court following the New Year’s celebrations. Following the Commodores, they then play against the Kentucky Wildcats on January 2nd.

“This has been an emotionally taxing time for Keyontae’s family, friends and teammates,” Florida Athletic Director Scott Stricklin said Dec. 17th. “Our hope is that everyone impacted will take an opportunity to process those emotions and regroup ahead of the start of the new year.”
