Lamar Odom enjoyed his first basketball game following his recovery after a drug overdose back in October. The 36-year-old looked to be in good health during the L.A. Lakers game.

Supporting good friend and fellow basketball player Kobe Bryant as he played against Miami Heat, the former NBA player was met with cheers by fans and well-wishers after appearing on the Jumbotron while watching the game courtside.

Lamar appeared to be in good spirits as he enjoyed the game

Kobe, who visited Lamar when he was in critical condition last year, revealed how happy he was to see his friend doing well. He told ESPN: "In Vegas, he was [on death's doorstep]. To see him walking around now, like nothing happened. It's really a miracle. It's beyond good to see him."

He was given a warm welcome by the Lakers head coach, Bryon Scott, who told reporters: "Looks like he's doing fantastic. He's part of the family."

The star has also been enjoying time with his once-estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, and was seen visiting church with her over Easter. A source told that the pair seemed to be close. They said: "Khloe and Lamar acted like a couple, all flirty and affectionate.

"They looked really happy and were in deep conversation, like they were in their own world. Khloe looked especially happy with a huge smile on her face the whole time. Plus, it was a romantic setting for them."

Khloe has been spending more time with her estranged husband since his recovery

Khloe has also described Lamar's recovery as a "miracle" after being found unconscious following a drug overdose. She told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live: "He's walking and talking. I'm not laughing because it's funny. I'm laughing because it's literally a miracle.

"This person was in a coma. I was told he had four hours to live. He wasn't talking."
