Lamar Odom remains unresponsive and in a coma after the former NBA player was hospitalized upon being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Tuesday.

Citing a "source to close to the family," People reports that that doctors revealed "cocaine and opiates" in Odom's system when he was found. Odom has also suffered "a couple of strokes" since he was discovered on Tuesday afternoon.

According to People, Odom's ex-wife Khloé Kardashian, along with Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian West, "dropped everything" and flew to the hospital that night. Kobe Bryant, Odom's former Los Angeles Lakers teammate, also reportedly flew to Las Vegas to stay bedside.

Odom has a history of substance abuse. In August 2013, the same year he and Kardashian divorced, he received three years' probation for a DUI charge. The following month he entered rehab for drug and alcohol abuse.
