A former NBA star is in the hospital after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.

FOX News Radio's Tonya J. Powers has more:

Lamar Odom, a former LA Laker and member-by-marriage of the Kardashian family, is in a Las Vegas hospital.

He was taken there Tuesday afternoon after being found face down and unresponsive at Love Ranch - a legal brothel in Crystal, Nevada.

Officials tried to airlift him to Las Vegas, but Odom - who is six feet, 10 inches tall - was too tall for the helicopter.

Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof says his staff picked Odom up on Saturday, and claims Odom had been taking herbal Viagra and had drunk part of a bottle of cognac.

Odom won two NBA Championships with the Lakers in 2009 and 2010, and is married to Khloe Kardashian. While she filed for divorce in 2013, it has not yet been approved by a judge.
