Lamar Odom is taking his first steps on the road to recovery.

A source tells UsWeekly that Odom will be moved to a rehabilitation center in Los Angeles to continue his treatment.

"Khloe [Kardashian] and Kris [Jenner] decided to move Lamar to a rehab center in L.A. so they can all be closer to him," the source said to Us Weekly. "He's still getting better little by little...It's all baby steps, very slow. Everything is going very slow."

Lamar Odom breathing on his own and communicating with family

Odom is likely to be moved sometime this week. The former basketball star's condition has continued to improve after he was found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada on Oct. 13. He was airlifted to a Las Vegas hospital where he had been in a coma after multiple strokes, but woke up over the weekend and has been able to communicate with family.

The source added that Odom has been speaking more though he has a challenging journey ahead of him to fully recover.
