Lamar Odom has been placed on an industrial-strength remedial course for improved physical conditioning.
"There's an action plan in place, and he's working [hard]," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. "He came in this [Friday] morning and worked for an hour and a half. He's got a ways to go, but he's a willing worker. He was behind when he got here condition-wise. But we'll get him caught up."
Carlisle has no doubt that Odom's slow start -- he was 4-for-27 from the field in the first three games -- will improve.
"We've all got a job to do," Carlisle said. "I can tell you his attitude has been good and he really wants to do well, but he knows he's got work to do.
