Shaquille O’Neal explains why he was hospitalized.

When Shaquille O’Neal’s supporters learned on social media that he was in the hospital, they were concerned.

Now, the basketball player and game analyst have described what has been happening, although with a sense of fun.

“To everyone worried. First and foremost, let me thank you,” O’Neal wrote in an Instagram post on Monday. “Finally, I am fine. I needed to get some BBL work done, known as #hipreplacement. So, no need to worry, I am OK.”
