UPDATE #2 – Lakers.com: According to Lakers spokesman John Black, results of Lamar Odom’s Monday morning CT scan and MRI are that he has a lower back contusion (bruised back).
His status for Tuesday evening’s Game 5 vs. Houston – which tips off at 7:30 p.m. – is questionable, and his condition will be updated subsequent to Tuesday morning’s shootaround.
UPDATE #1 – Odom “is being listed as day-to-day with back spasms & will be re-evaluated Monday.”
Lamar Odom left the game late in the 3rd quarter with back spasms. Lamar Odom drove the ball in for a layin when Battier slid under him (called a charge) and Odom flipped back in midair and fell directly down on his back.
Here is what Lamar had to say…
“I felt pain. Immense pain. Hurts. I probably won’t practice (tomorrow), and get treatment on it all day.”
