Lamar Odom Update: Odom To Play In One D-League Game Before Return To Mavericks

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Lamar Odom will be playing in one NBDL game on Saturday before he returns to the Dallas Mavericks:

Odom was away from the team for a weekend due to undisclosed "personal problems" and, under NBA rules agreed to in the new CBA, cannot refuse a one-game assignment to the D-League.

He has only averaged 7.7 points per game, by far a career low, so far this season and his appearance with the Mavericks' D-League affiliate on Saturday could be the beginning of the end to his last year in the NBA.

His repeated off-the-court issues, first demanding a trade from the Lakers and now this mysterious walk-out from the Mavericks, will not help matters.
