Lamar Odom quits Spanish basketball team after injury

OHMYGOSSIP —  Lamar Odom hasn’t just quit his marriage. Khloe Kardashian‘s ex-husband has been forced to quit the Spanish basketball team Baskonia (Laboral Kutxa) after suffering an injury.

“The tests carried out in New York by Lamar Odom’s trusted medical team, with the knowledge of the club, have shown that the player is suffering from lumbar radiculitis, which could keep him out of action for up to two months,” a spokesman for Laboral Kutxa told Us Weekly.

“The player therefore terminates his current contractual relationship with the club. The north American pivot will complete his recovery in the United States.”

Lumbar Radiculitis is a painful spinal injury that causes lower back pain.

“Baskonia hopes Lamar Odom’s recuperation process goes well and it leaves open the possibility of renewing its relationship with the player once his injury has healed,” the statement continues.

“Baskonia would like to thank the player’s involvement during the time he has been in Vitoria and leaves open the possibility of renewing the relationship depending on how his injury evolves in the coming months.”

Odom, 34, recently returned home to the states after his injury, and it was unclear whether or not he would go back. Odom had had only played two games for the team so far, racking up a total of 22 minutes on the court.

“I’m very grateful for the understanding,” Odom said. “Not only the people of the Baskonia basketball organization, but the people — who’ve shown an appreciation for me and not just a basketball player. It goes so far from beyond the basketball court. I would like to thank you for the continued support.

“This is something that is beyond my control. There’s a difference between a part of your body that’s hurt and a part of your body that’s injured. It’s up to me as a responsible athlete to — if I’m injured — to take care of it. I think everything happens for a reason.

“Now I have a home away from home all the time. There’s a place I will always look forward to come back to and I look forward to getting on the court as soon as possible.”

Meanwhile, Lamar won’t watch Khloe on the upcoming Keeping Up with the Kardashians finale.

The sportsman doesn’t want to relive the demise of his marriage to Khloe.

“He lived through that and it was torture for him,” a source told HollywoodLife.

Odom has been carefully avoiding watching Khloe on Season 9 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians because he knows it would be too painful for him to see the troubled final year of their marriage play out on the small screen.

“Lamar ain’t got nothing but love for everybody but he’s really not trying to go back down memory lane because it wasn’t a good look,” said the source. “He hasn’t even seen the show and is not keeping up with that.

“That’s not new to him,. That was last year and he lived through that and it was torture for him. The last thing he’s doing is sitting up watching his demise with a bowl of popcorn and a glass of water.

“He’s got his legs under him and is feeling good. He’s not the Lamar he used to be. He’s thankful for where he is right now and that’s all anyone can ask for.”
