Reporting from Houston -- Lamar Odom walked off the court today, dripping sweat, after the Lakers' afternoon shoot-around.
It's the only exercise the power forward will get today, unfortunately for the Lakers.
Odom was suspended by the NBA for tonight's game against the Houston Rockets because he took a few steps toward a scuffle that evolved in front of the Lakers' bench Monday against Portland.
A day after the ruling was handed down by league disciplinarian Stu Jackson, Odom was not thrilled.
"I probably would do the same thing over again if I see one of my teammates put under pressure by two guys from the other team," Odom said today, his first comments since the suspension was announced. "I was no further than when I cheer. I guess I'm on the court when I cheer as well, so I've got to watch that. I might get suspended for that."
