Lamar Odom is coming back to Los Angeles.

The former Laker and Clipper is being transferred by medical helicopter from Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas to a facility in Los Angeles to continue treatment after he was discovered unconscious at a Nevada brothel last Tuesday, according to People. He is said to be accompanied by his estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, and several nurses.

Odom, 35, has shown signs of improvement since waking up from a four-day coma on Friday and breathing on his own.

A person familiar with the situation told People that Odom still has a long way to go in his recovery. “He’s responsive, but there are so many things that could go wrong right now, and the doctors have still been guarded,” the person said.

Kardashian has been by Odom’s side since rushing to Las Vegas with family members last week. Other friends and family who have visited Odom include former Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant; Odom’s two children and their mother; and Odom’s father, Joe Odom.
