Shareef O’Neal, the son of Shaquille O’Neal and a four-star recruit at UCLA, will miss the entire 2018-19 season after doctors discovered a heart ailment that will require surgery.

O’Neal told TMZ Sports he “felt funny” during team workouts this summer so UCLA’s doctors made him wear a heart monitor so he could push a button whenever he wanted to alert them.

He said he pressed the button during one summer practice and doctors later discovered the heart ailment that will force him to miss the upcoming season.

He said he expects to return after a medical redshirt season in 2018-19.

“So, the other day during routine checkup, we found a medical issue dealing with my heart,” O'Neal said in the video.

“And thank God UCLA medical staff found it early, but causing this I will not be playing this season and I will be a medical redshirt. But during this time off, I'’ll be off for a while, I'll be focusing on academics, my health, of course, and I'll just be observing to be the best player I can be next year.”
