Mavs decide they need Lamar Odom ASAP for tonight's game against Utah. D-League stint canceled. Story w/Jeff Caplan going up now @ESPNDallas— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) March 3, 2012
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.
