The agent for free-agent forward Lamar Odom refuted a TMZ report Sunday that said Odom had been missing for 72 hours after a dispute with his wife, reality TV star Khloe Kardashian, reports

ESPN is also reporting that Odom is in a Los Angeles hotel where friends are trying to get him help for an undisclosed drug problem.

Odom's agent Jeff Schwartz told on Monday: "Lamar is not missing. His wife knows exactly where he is. Playing in the NBA is still very much a part of Lamar's plans."

Odom, 33, spent last season with the Los Angeles Clippers, averaging four points and 5.8 rebounds while playing all 82 games.

In 13 seasons, Odom has averaged 13.3 points and 8.4 rebounds a game.
