Lamar Odom’s family thanked his supporters and asked for “continued prayers” as the former NBA star remains in a medically induced coma in a Las Vegas hospital.

“Thanks for your outpouring of prayers and support for our dad,” Destiny and Lamar Odom, Jr. wrote in a statement to CNN and ET. “We are here with our family and friends. We appreciate everyone respecting our privacy at this time. We ask for your continued prayers.”
