‘Keep Praying’: Lamar Odom Not Walking But Making Progress
Despite reports that former Los Angeles Lakers player Lamar Odom took a few steps without assistance, a report by Radar Online said that these stories suggesting a Christmas miracle may have been rumors promoted by the Kardashians. Odom was found unconscious in a brothel in October due to drug overdose and is being treated at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
On 17 December (15), TMZ reported the former Los Angeles Lakers player had taken three steps without his walker, much to his doctors’ surprise, but the new details are at odds with those claims.
TMZ previously reported the 36-year-old had built up enough strength to take his first few steps unaided, but a new source has revealed Lamar is not mobile just yet.
“Lamar has made great improvements after the overdose, but he is not walking and unfortunately there is no Christmas miracle for his condition,” the insider told Radar Online. “He’s still in pretty bad shape. Lamar wants to get better and he gives it his all, but it is tough. Really tough for him.”
Lamar is allegedly set to leave Cedars-Sinai hospital in L.A. and move to a rehabilitation facility in the New Year (16) to continue his lengthy recovery process.
