Lamar Odom just made another huge improvement! The former NBA star was just removed from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and was placed in a private room, according to PEOPLE.

What's more, TMZ is reporting that Lamar's kidneys have improved so much that he's been taken off of his six hour a day dialysis and will no longer need a kidney transplant. This is huge news, as Lamar's kidneys were the last organ that continued to fail as the rest of his body began to recover.

Of course, Lamar will still need months of physical therapy, which he is able to receive on the hospital floor that he's been transferred to. Lamar did suffer multiple strokes after being hospitalized, which affected his speech and motor functions, but it sounds like he's improving on that front, too.

"After therapy, he is able to take a few steps with help," a source told PEOPLE. "He is doing very well and continues to be a fighter. He hasn't given up once, and this will really help him in the future."

Given that Lamar's brain is still swollen, doctors won't know the full extent of his injuries for a few months, but it sounds like he's at least heading in the right direction!
