While it's still an uphill battle for Lamar Odom, a source close to the former NBA player tells ET that there have seen some glimmers of hope that he could be getting better.

On Wednesday, Odom was placed in a medically induced coma after he was found unresponsive at the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada the night before.

According to our source, there have been a few encouraging moments, including when Odom briefly fluttered open his eyes and at one point Kim Kardashian believed he squeezed her hand.

That being said, ET is being told that the 35-year-old athlete's kidneys are a top concern as they have started to fail him. He has been placed on dialysis as he remains in critical condition.
