The basketball star is recovering in hospital after he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel following a four-day drink and drug binge but is reportedly making significant improvements.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Lamar is getting better every day. He is more coherent and can talk more. [He is] walking with help now. He is getting stronger every day.

"And has a great team of therapists and specialists working with him. He's 6' 11" and weighs a lot, so getting him to walk a little has been really hard."

Meanwhile, Lamar's estranged wife Khloé Kardashian recently opened up about the pair's relationship, insisting they are not getting back together despite calling off the divorce.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star said: "I pulled back on the divorce because there is no rush for it. For medical decisions and a ton of other things, it's just smarter that it's put on hold. But that doesn't mean I'm back with Lamar. It's not even in our brains to think about us having a relationship.

"I loved him always, and I will always love him. I don't believe love is fickle. I believe when you love someone, you are allowed to love from afar. You don't have to be with that person in order to love him."
