Lamar Odom is in a Los Angeles hotel, where friends are trying to get him help for an unspecified drug problem according to ESPN. The information comes after Odom's agent Jeff Schwartz refuted a TMZ report Sunday that his client had been missing for 72 hours after a dispute with his wife, Khloe Kardashian.

Schwartz told's Marc Stein earlier Monday:

"Lamar is not missing. His wife knows exactly where he is."

This story has taken so many twists and turns in the past few days. There are conflicting reports from TMZ and Lamar's agent. Either way, Lamar is going to have a hard time finding his way back to the NBA after this story that will raise red flags along the entire league. Odom can't wxpect to sign with a team without having to answer to all of these rumors and all of the speculation.
