Lamar Odom Leaves Spanish Basketball Team Due to Injury

It's adios to Spain for Lamar Odom. The athlete's basketball comeback in a Spanish pro hoops league is over almost as quickly as it began due to injury.

Khloe Kardashian’s future ex-husband only played in two games for the Laboral Kutxa Baskonia Spanish team before making an early departure.

After an ongoing back injury has sidelined him, he returned to the U.S. for treatment. He’s expected to be out of commission for at least a month's time.

Whether or not he’ll return to Europe to complete his two-month contract is unclear, according to reports, but many consider it unlikely for the 34-year-old.

After becoming a free agent last year, the troubled star was hoping to sign with the L.A. Clippers or Lakers, which never came to fruition ... shockingly.

Odom arrested last year for a DUI and after reports of infidelity, drug use and crack videos, his reality star wife of four years filed for divorce in December.

Since then, he's still been spotted sporting his wedding ring and holding out hope for a reconciliation with Khloe, who still communicates with her ex.

He seems to believe this is a legitimate possibility.

"Who knows? We don't know exactly if [the divorce is going through]. Only time will tell. I hope not. But even if we were divorced, she would always be my wife.

"Being married and being married to a woman I decided to marry was, besides having children, the most important thing in my life," Odom went on.

"Those were some of the best years of my life."

Past tense, Lamar. Past tense. And if they were so important, why were you holed up at Polina Polonsky's place smoking crack? We're just curious.
