The four-time NBA champion tweeted a photo of himself in a hospital bed with a gown and head covering on, and wrote he was watching Ernie Johnson and Candace Parker and missed them.
However, Shaq didn’t reveal any further details but it was noted that Ernie Johnson might have said during the NCAA Tournament he was having hip surgery, according to an Awful Announcing editor. OutKick did not hear Johnson make that claim on a broadcast.
That hasn’t been confirmed by the Lakers legend or any other major news outlet. Given Johnson’s connection, hopefully that is indeed the case.
“I’m always watching,” he posted on Twitter, telling his “NBA on TNT” cohosts Candace Parker and Ernie Johnson that he missed them.
At the time, O’Neal did not make clear what he was in the hospital for, but TMZ Sports reported he underwent hip surgery and that he was recovering.
Monday evening, Shaq finally cleared the air, telling fans to rest assured he was doing well.
Prior to the hospital photo, Shaq tweeted at Parker directly, referencing her newscast with Johnson from that night: “BARBECUE CHICKEN ALERT BARBECUE CHICKEN ALERT,” after Parker used the phrase on-air.
The tweet earned an on-screen mention during TNT’s March Madness coverage on Sunday, with Johnson editorializing, “Shaq’s got a little time on his hands!” before wishing him the best in his recovery.
