Sore Odom to be Evaluated on Monday

With 6:01 remaining in the third quarter of Sunday’s Game 4 loss to Houston, Lamar Odom fell hard onto his back after Shane Battier stepped under his body during an airborne drive to the hoop to draw a charge.

Odom got up under his own power and walked to the locker room, but was declared out with “back spasms” for the remainder of the game.

After the contest, Odom had this to say: “I won’t be able to practice but hopefully I can help the team on Tuesday.”

On Monday, Odom will have an MRI and CAT scan to determine his status for Tuesday’s Game 5, but for now he’s listed as day-to-day.
