Lamar Odom is reportedly hospitalized in Las Vegas after being discovered unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Tuesday. Ex-wife Khloe Kardashian and members of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians family are said to be by his side.

Former team mates of Lamar Odom are praying for him as recent reports sound bleak. Odom is reportedly in a coma--his lungs, heart, and kidneys failing.

"So many prayers sent up to you LO! I truly hope this isn't the last stop for you because you still have so much to give, not even to others but to yourself more importantly. Never know what someone is going through unless you're walking in their shoes. No judgement. Straight up homie!" LeBron James captions a photo on Instagram.

Dwayne Wade spent last night--and this morning, too--praying for Lamar Odom.

Prayers are coming all the way from China for Lamar Odom.

Lamar Odom was found unconscious when two women went to check on him. Brothel owner Dennis Hof says 911 was called right away.

“We called 911, and the 911 told my staff what to do: turn him over on his left side,” Hof told NBC News. “There was this terrible foaming stuff coming out of him. He was throwing up, a little bit of blood.”

Kendall Jenner is the first of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians family members to break her silence about Lamar Odom via social media.

Despite the divorce between Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian becoming final this summer, Khloe has often said she'll always love Lamar. Her family clearly feels the same way.

Hopefully Lamar Odom recovers from this frightening incident and can feel that love firsthand.
