Sacramento Kings forward Caron Butler remarked on the ongoing situation regarding Lamar Odom, who has been hospitalized after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel, after last night's 107-100 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Butler and Odom became teammates with the Miami Heat in the 2003-04 season and were then traded together along with Brian Grant to the Lakers in exchange for Shaquille O'Neal.

Just last month, Butler appeared on TMZ Hollywood Sports to promote his new book "Tuff Juice" and said he was worried about Odom and could not reach him despite several tries.
