Lamar Odom To Miss More Basketball Games And Remain in Los Angeles

February 29, 2012 10:00 AM by Ashley Lee

Lamar Odom missed tonight’s basketball game against Kris Humphries’ team, the New Jersey Nets, in order to be with his family. When will the Dallas Mavericks forward return to Texas? The other half of Khloe & Lamar won’t be back on the basketball court just yet.

According to Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle, Lamar will be missing at least two more games in order to remain in Los Angeles, near his ailing father. He told reporters that the player is going through “a tough situation.”

“We’re very supportive as a franchise and we’ll let you know Thursday where we are,” he said. The coach previously told the Dallas Morning News, “The hope is that he’ll join us soon, and we’ll update you when there’s an update.”

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban also clarified that Lamar’s leave of absence has nothing to do with any kind of inside conflict on the court. ESPN reported that Lamar was rumored to be unhappy in Dallas and was seeking a buyout from the team.

“It hasn’t been discussed and we wouldn’t do it. We think Lamar has been a huge plus for us,” said Cuban. “Sometimes guys go through issues and have to deal with them. We always try to support our guys.”
