(WJW) — Sunday, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal posted a photo of himself in a hospital bed on social media, worrying some fans.
“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.
“To all the people who are worried and concerned, first off, let me say thank you. And lastly no need to worry, just had to get some BBL WORK AKA #hipreplacement,” he wrote in another tweet. “Thanks and love you all, but no need to worry and, yes, I’m fine.”
