ADAM Sandler has sparked concern among fans after he was seen using a cane to walk with his wife Jackie.
The Hollywood film actor is known for using his athletic skills to enhance his various comedic performances.
Adam, 55, was photographed in Brentwood, California having breakfast with his wife Jackie, 47.
The Hustle actor wore his standard t-shirt and basketball shorts combo and was equipped with a walking stick for the outing.
The cane seemed less of a fashion step and more of a real walker as he traversed the Los Angeles neighborhood.
The comedian, who is known to be physically active, may have injured himself playing one of the pickup basketball games he frequently attends.
The former Saturday Night Live prankster is also known for putting his body on the line in certain film roles; like The Waterboy, The Longest Yard and Uncut Gems.
Earlier this summer, Adam returned to the big screen to headline his new basketball-themed film, Hustle.
He brings his love of the game to the role alongside the great NBA athletes.
Co-produced by NBA superstar LeBron James, Hustle draws viewers into the sports league as it introduces well-known current and former players throughout the storyline.
The film revolves around Adam’s character, Stanley Sugarman, a basketball scout who works to lead Bo Cruz, played by Juancho Hernangómez, to a brighter future.
An unlikely pair, Stanley and Bo both come from troubled backgrounds, which brings them together as they pursue their dreams with the NBA and eventually the Philadelphia 76ers.
Hustle profiles key NBA figures for authenticity, including former players Shaquille O’Neal, Allen Iverson, Julius Irving and Kenny Smith.
“It’s such a good opportunity, ‘Hustle,’ Adam previously told Slash Film about the pro gamer starring in his new movie.
“The premise of looking and finding a real NBA player and getting them to see if they fit into the NBA and can be a star there and have a life there.
‘It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity so I think the goal was to make sure the hoop looked as cool as possible and as real as possible and a guy like me and a guy like Juancho look at it and go,’ Yes, that’s how it works.'”
The prankster previously scared fans when rumors began that he had passed away after a series of posts were published discussing his death.
Claims of Adam’s untimely death began swirling on TikTok and Twitter as part of a bizarre trend.
The punch-drunk love actor sparked panic after unwitting fans caught wind of the videos claiming he had drowned or had a fatal accident.
But it turns out that social media users were just participating in a crazy trend of telling people Sandler was dead while filming their reaction.
The majority of people reacted to the fake news of the esteemed New Yorker’s death by being visibly upset and shocked.
But it has since been confirmed that the Happy Gilmore star is very much alive and kicking.
The creators of the trend were met with a huge backlash from unamused fans, who branded the prank “sick.”
One Twitter user wrote: “Adam Sandler being dead is a lame joke.”
While another commented: “I find death fraud extremely unfunny. Adam Sandler is not dead, stop spreading fake news.”
“Whoever started the ‘Adam Sandler is dead’ rumor is sick and perverted,” added a third.
