Lamar Odom has shown a huge improvement in his condition since yesterday and is now breathing entirely on his own, TMZ reported Saturday.
Witnesses at the hospital where Odom has been staying since Tuesday, when he was found unconscious at a Las Vegas-area brothel, say he's been taken off the ventilator completely. He's still wearing an oxygen mask to keep his levels normal, sources tell TMZ.
The former NBA star and estranged husband of Khloe Kardashian was responding to doctors verbally and physically on Saturday. His heart seems to be in pretty good shape, though other organs are still in the danger zone—meaning he's not out of the woods yet by a long shot.
"This is the best 24 hours he has had so far," a source told TMZ.

Odom, 35, collapsed and was found unresponsive at the Love Ranch Vegas brothel in Crystal, Nevada, where he'd been staying for four days. Police said he'd drunk alcohol and taken cocaine, along with several doses of an herbal sexual enhancement drug.
Kardashian, 31, who hasn't officially divorced Odom, has been at his bedside making medical and treatment decisions on his behalf. He woke up from his coma on Friday and said "Hi" to Khloe.

Doctors have been tight-lipped about the specifics of his condition, and security at the hospital has been tight.
Here's hoping for a speedy and full recovery for Lamar!
