We were hoping the reason Lamar Odom had to miss his team's game against the Lakers in Dallas on Wednesday night was nothing serious, but it turns out it may be.
The Maverick was absent because he was tending to father, Joe, who "had a health scare," which is "very serious."
Lamar and Khloe Kardashian flew back into El Lay to be by his side. According to sources, Lamar's father has said, "I'm doing a lot better. But I'm depressed right now. I'm getting some rest."
No details on his health condition have been released yet, but it'd be a real shame if it was life threatening. It wasn't too long ago that Joe, a former heroin addict, reconciled with his son after being welcomed into the family with open arms by Khloe.
Our thoughts are definitely with the Odoms and we sincerely hope that Joe pulls through whatever serious ailment he's suffering from.
