A Kardashian reality showdown…on the basketball court? Tonight, the Dallas Mavericks are playing the New Jersey Nets in Texas, meaning that Lamar Odom and Kim Kardashian’s former husband Kris Humphries are supposed come face-to-face on national television. But will both of the stars of Khloe & Lamar and Kourtney and Kim Take New York be at the game?
Unfortunately, no. According to E! News, Lamar has taken a sudden leave of absence from the basketball team in order to be with his ailing father in Los Angeles.
A rep for the Mavericks has stated that he was not at practice on Monday afternoon and “is continuing to deal with the family matter.”
Dallas Mavericks Coach Rick Carlisle also told the Dallas Morning News, “The hope is that he’ll join us soon, and we’ll update you when there’s an update.”
Lamar also had to skip last Wednesday’s game against his former teammates, the Lakers, to visit his dad. There’s no word on his dad Joe’s condition, but Lamar had originally been expected back in Texas this week.
Looks like we won’t be seeing an Odom vs. Humphries showdown on the basketball court tonight, but we’re hoping Joe makes a speedy recovery.
