Lamar Odom misses Mavs vs. Lakers game for ailing father
"He has been excused to tend to a family matter," his coach Rick Carlisle told ESPN. "He will rejoin us after the [All-Star] break."
Joe Odom, who is frequently featured on "Khloe & Lamar," is feeling much better now. He tells TMZ that he's grateful that his once-estranged son was willing to take some time off to work to care for him while he was suffering from a stomach virus.
"[Wednesday] night [Lamar] stayed with me all night ... just kickin' it and whatnot ... but everything is good now. I feel a lot better," Joe, who struggled with a heroin addiction for several years, told paparazzi.
