Reality superstars Kris Jenner and Rob Kardashian took to Instagram late on Wednesday to show their support for American professional basketball player Lamar Odom. The NBA star and estranged husband to Khloé Kardashian was found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada on Saturday. Odom has since been hospitalized.

Since news of the incident surfaced, Odom's friends and family, and the general public at large, have been rallying behind the famed NBA star, and Kris Jenner and Rob Kardashian are among Odom's supporters.

Kris Jenner posted an image of an impassioned Odom on the court at a Lakers game. "Please pray for Lamar #ourfighter," she wrote. The post has since wracked up 265 thousand likes.

On Wednesday, Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly told reporters that Odom was unresponsive and had cocaine in his system when we was discovered by emergency responders, according to CNN. A blood sample from Odom awaits further testing at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police laboratory. In a 911 call that was recorded and played to the press, an unnamed woman also claims she saw Odom ingest supplements that some believe to have been herbal viagra. 

Awaiting test results from Odom's blood sample, "the case is ongoing," Wehrly said per CNN.
