NBA Star Lamar Odom Excused From The Dallas Mavericks
Lamar Odom missed the Dallas Mavericks’ game Wednesday night’s against his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers.
Coach Rick Carlisle said Odom was excused from the game to attend to a family matter.
“He will rejoin us after the break,” Carlisle said, without elaborating, when he announced Odom’s absence at the end of his pregame availability.
Odom has struggled much of the season with the Mavericks after being the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year for the Lakers last season. He won three NBA titles in seven seasons with the Lakers.
The Mavericks acquired Odom three days later for a trade exception and a draft pick.
Odom is averaging 7.7 points and 4.5 rebounds. He was only 3-of-14 shooting the last two games.He's probably feeling the effects of the Kardashian curse
