Some majorly good news, if true, for Lamar Odom: Sources tell TMZ he's undergone a "shocking" improvement, with his kidneys doing so much better that he'll soon be off dialysis and won't need a kidney transplant after all. Sources say doctors were surprised at the turnaround, seeing as they thought Odom's kidney troubles were life-threatening, and Odom has been moved from the ICU to a hospital floor focusing on physical therapy.

Some perhaps not-as-good news for him? Khloe Kardashian may not have been kidding when she insisted the two weren't back together romantically. Despite reports claiming that she was taking a break from current boyfriend James Harden (another NBA player) in order to focus on Lamar, E! reports that she attended Harden's Houston Rockets opener Wednesday to support him. "Khloe and James never broke up," a source says. "He's been so understanding and he knows that Khloe's love for Lamar is deeper than what most people can understand." (Another report says Lamar is being treated as a brain trauma victim.)
