It seems like celebrities’ priorities have really been in order lately. Following Stephen Colbert’s postponed production of his show last week, Lamar Odom is now taking a short break from basketball.

Khloe Kardashian Odom’s main man was absent from last night’s Dallas Mavericks game against his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers. The reason? Odom’s coach says he’s taking a break from basketball to tend to a “family matter.”

Odom’s break will only last through the weekend, as he is expected back on the court sometime next week.

What do you think about Lamar Odom’s choice for taking a small break from basketball?!? Definitely earns an A+ in our book! Let us know on Twitter!
