Further details in Lamar Odom's health scare has surfaced.

According to TMZ, the former NBA star suffered a dozen strokes "early on in his medical emergency," which were discovered after he underwent a series of brain scans.

While it is believed that the strokes didn't affect his vital organs, they have impacted Odom's motor skills and speech.

Odom has months of physical therapy ahead of him before he can regain these abilities, and its unclear how much he can restore.

While this is a concern, the main focus right now is Odom's kidneys, which have failed. He's going through six hours of dialysis a day at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. ... and may need a transplant.
