Odom’s Status Unclear For Game 5

Lamar Odom sat in the locker room with two electro-stim pads attached to his lower back as he slowly, almost achingly, pulled on his clothes, as good a metaphor as any after the Lakers’ 99-87 loss Sunday to Houston in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Odom is scheduled to have an MRI exam and CT scan today in Los Angeles after landing hard on his back on an off-balance driving layup attempt in the third quarter. Odom ran into Houston forward Shane Battier on the play and was called for charging.

Odom, averaging only 8.5 points and 8.8 rebounds in this series, will not practice today and wasn’t sure whether he could play Tuesday in Game 5
