Things are not looking good for NBA star Lamar Odom, despite Wednesday reports stating that he has shown signs of progress after he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel. According to a statement from a source from E! News, Odom may have suffered a stroke and possible brain damage.

On Wednesday night, his estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, reportedly felt her ex-husband squeeze her hand. However, due to his lack of consciousness and responsiveness to his medical team and tests, his condition remains ‘dire’ and ‘pessimistic’ at this point. Despite showing signs of life to Khloe, his condition remains critical.

The longer Odom remains in his current unresponsive and unconscious state, the worse the odds are for the LA Lakers big man to even recover. Reports of Lamar deteriorating were recently filed by TMZ. Doctors are saying that the hand squeeze may just have been an involuntary movement which is still possible despite his unconsciousness.

The Kardashian family have been requesting their social media followers to pray for Lamar and the rest of the family members. Ex-wife Khloe, sister Kim and mom Kris, all dropped what they were doing in order to be with Lamar.

Please pray for Lamar 🙏 #ourfighter

Odom was found in one of the rooms of Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South in Parump, Nevada last Tuesday afternoon. It was also reported that a “mucus type liquid was coming out of his mouth” according to Hof, who was there when the incident happened. Hof also told CBS evening news anchor Brian Ping that Odom was taking a Viagra-like herbal supplement but denied that drugs were involved at all.

The 6’10 former basketball player is currently fighting for his life in the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.

Odom was suspended twice by the NBA back in 2001 for violating the anti-drug program of the league. He was repeatedly in and out of rehab center every single day back then. He later on accepted a three-year probation and a three-month treatment from alcohol abuse after he was charged for driving under the influence.
