DALLAS (AP) – Lamar Odom is rejoining the Dallas Mavericks without playing a planned game in the NBA Development League.
The Mavericks said Saturday that Odom has been recalled and will be in uniform for their game that night against Utah.
Odom had been set to play for the Texas Legends on Saturday night after missing four straight games for the Mavericks. He was assigned to the D-League team Friday.
Odom’s last game was Feb. 20. The Mavericks have said he was away for a family matter and personal reasons.
After missing the Mavericks’ last game before the All-Star break against his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers, Odom has missed all three games since the break.
The defending NBA champion Mavericks have lost four in a row.
