HAWTHORNE, Calif. (AP) -Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom sustained a slight concussion in an automobile accident, team spokesman John Black said Wednesday.
The two-car crash happened Tuesday morning when Odom was driving to the Lakers' morning shootaround before their season-opening game against the Houston Rockets.
Odom, sitting out the first few games of the season while recuperating from shoulder surgery, attended Tuesday night's game, a 95-93 loss to Houston.
The driver of the other car was identified by police only as a 37-year-old woman from nearby Downey.
``At the time of the accident, it appeared the woman sustained very minor injuries,'' Hawthorne police Lt. Michael Ishii said.
