Odom To Return To Mavs?

SATURDAY, 7:11pm: Jeff Caplan of ESPNDallas.com reports that Odom did not address his teammates before the game and does not plan to take questions from the media until afterwards.

9:26am: Odom's D-League stint has been cancelled and the forward will instead join the Mavs for tonight's game against Utah, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN.com.

THURSDAY, 4:52pm: Odom won't be with the Mavs for tomorrow's game in New Orleans, but he'll likely play for the team's D-League affiliate on Saturday to "get his legs back," tweets Stein. It would be the equivalent of a one-game minor-league rehab stint for Odom.

1:17pm: Cuban met with Odom and agent Jeff Schwartz on Wednesday, and the Mavs expect to have the forward back on their active roster in a matter of days, reports ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

8:35am: There's a "growing feeling" within the Mavericks' locker room that Lamar Odom won't be returning to the team, a source tells Jeff Caplan of ESPN Dallas. Odom left the Mavs last Wednesday to tend to his ill father.

There's been increased chatter within the last week about Odom's future, including rumors about a possible buyout or trade. However, owner Mark Cuban has continued to insist the Mavs aren't interested in buying Odom out of his deal, and still believe he can help the team this season. The 32-year-old has been mired in a season-long slump since being dealt to Dallas by the Lakers in December.

Mavs players who have been patient and supportive of Odom so far this season may be starting to show some cracks, says Caplan. Jason Kidd said earlier this week that the situation will "work itself out one way or another," while Jason Terry said yesterday that it's up to the front office to come up with a resolution.

Coach Rick Carlisle expects to have an update on Odom's status at some point today.

    To be honest, I think they should just get rid of Odom altogether… He has not been a consistent player since he has become a Maverick. I can count on one hand the the games he has really played hard for the Mavs. Dallas will not make the playoffs this year if they do not do something quick, fast, and in a hurry..I love the Mavricks and I want very much for them to make it to the NBA FINALS two years in a role. Although, the way things are looking, I do not think that will happen if the front office do not make some quick changes…….
