Lamar Odom Update: Mavericks Cancel Odom's D-League Appearance

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Dallas Mavericks have canceled Lamar Odom's D-League appearance because they need him on the court for tonight's matchup against the Utah Jazz.

Odom was originally scheduled to play in a game for the Frisco Legends, the team's D-League affiliate, after he missed the last four games for undisclosed personal reasons.

However, it appears the Mavericks recent struggles have prompted the team to push ahead the 6'10 forward's timetable and spare the reality TV star the embarrassment of a game with the Legends.

Odom is expected to play for Dallas Saturday night against the Utah Jazz and the team will have to hope he can step right into the flow of the offense.
