The news on Lamar Odom's health status continues to be not so great.

Reports from close friends and family continue to reveal that he is still having trouble being fully functional. This includes retrieving his motor skills, like walking on his own, lack of communication skills summing up to mere one-word responses, and unable to recognize many of them. Some loved ones have even described the former NBA Sixth Man of the Year as "empty."

Although these symptoms from strokes seem to be common, doctors who have worked extensively with Odom fear that he could be suffering from severe brain damage.

The former NBA star is still recovering in a Los Angeles hospital, after collapsing from suffering an approximated twelve strokes on October 13th in a Las Vegas brothel.
