It doesn't sound like Lamar Odom's dad Joe Odom is doing well.
The former heroin addict is currently suffering from an undisclosed illness, which has prompted Lamar to cancel some of his games to be by his dad's side.
Joe has recently spoken about how he's doing, but it seems like he's dealing with a new slew of problems.
"I’m doing good. I’m stressed out and distressed. I’m doing a lot better. But I’m depressed right now. I’m getting some rest."
Even if he's physically feeling better, he needs to be in a positive mental state in order to stay healthy.
He didn't elaborate further on his condition, but did say that "it is a problem that I had."
We know this is tough on Lamar considering he's had a strained relationship with his father.
Our thoughts go out to the Odom family.
