Rookie forward Johnny O’Bryant returned to the team Monday after his fiancee gave birth to a baby girl, Amara, at a Chicago hospital earlier in the day . O’Bryant was warming up before Sunday’s matinee home game against Atlanta when he received the news his fiancee, Ariel Ward, was getting ready to give birth. So he hustled to Chicago and was on hand when the baby arrived around 3 a.m. Monday. “She told me I needed to come to the hospital,” O’Bryant said. “I got on the road and high-tailed it.”
LSU basketball star Johnny O’Bryant III will announce he’s entering the NBA Draft Tuesday, according to O’Bryant’s high school coach from Mississippi who talked to a Greenville TV station Monday night.
