Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Cedric Ceballos offered a promising update on his battle of recovering from the COVID-19 virus that left him in the hospital fighting for his life.

The 52-year-old Ceballos played two seasons with the Lakers from 1994 to 1996. While with the Lakers, Ceballos had his two best seasons, averaging 20.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.1 steals per game.

Ceballos was the winner of the NBA’s 1992 Slam Dunk Contest as well.

It’s unclear if Ceballos had received the COVID-19 vaccine, though the vast majority of people who have been hospitalized because of the virus in recent months have been unvaccinated.

While Ceballos has been out of the league for the past two decades, he has received best wishes from other players, including retired guard Dwyane Wade.
