Why Shaquille O’Neal spent this past weekend in the hospital? NBA legend’s concerning bed photo
NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal left his fans in a state of shock when he posted a video of himself on Sunday night lying on a hospital bed.
Although there was no context provided in the video, it was revealed the following day that the 51-year-old underwent hip surgery over the weekend. Despite this news, there’s nothing terribly serious to be worried about.
What Happened to Shaquille O’Neal?
Shaquille O’Neal underwent hip surgery over the weekend. While the surgery may sound serious, reports suggest that there’s no reason to worry.
In fact, hip replacement surgery has become a common procedure for people of all ages to improve their mobility, and it’s possible that O’Neal underwent the surgery to alleviate any discomfort or pain he might have been experiencing.
As a retired NBA player and an analyst for TNT, O’Neal’s job doesn’t require him to be as physically active as he used to be, but it’s essential to maintain his health and mobility. By undergoing the surgery, he’s likely to regain his full range of motion and continue with his daily routine with ease.

Support from Colleagues
O’Neal’s colleagues from “NBA on TNT” have shown their support for him during his recovery. Candace Parker, a fellow basketball analyst, responded to O’Neal’s tweet with an encouraging message, writing “Love ya big Fella” with a heart emoji.
The 7-foot-1-inch former center also received numerous supportive messages from his fans and well-wishers on social media, wishing him a speedy recovery.
When Will Shaquille O’Neal Return to Analyst Duties?
As for when O’Neal will be back on his feet and returning to his analyst duties with TNT, it’s unclear at the moment. However, it’s reasonable to assume that he’ll take the necessary time to rest and recover from the surgery before returning to work.
The NBA regular season is set to end on April 9, and the playoffs will begin on April 15. So, O’Neal may be ready to return to work by mid-April.
Shaquille O’Neal is one of the most recognizable figures in the world of basketball, both on and off the court. While it was a surprise to see him in a hospital bed, it’s good to know that he’s okay and in good hands.
It’s also comforting to see the outpouring of support from his colleagues and fans alike, wishing him a speedy recovery. Although we will miss his presence on “NBA on TNT” for the time being, we hope that Shaq makes a swift and full recovery and returns to the court soon.
