LAS VEGAS – Lamar Odom opened his eyes Friday morning, a person at the hospital where he remained in intensive care told USA TODAY Sports.

Odom's eyes appeared to move in reaction to voices and other noise, the person said.

The person asked not to be named due to the sensitivity of the matter.

Odom has been in Sunrise Hospital since Tuesday, after being rushed to the facility following a three-day binge at a Nevada brothel that left him unresponsive.

Friday brought the first positive signs for the former NBA player and estranged husband of reality television star Khloe Kardashian, as his heart showed evidence of increased function.

A report from Entertainment Tonight claiming that Odom was in a strong enough condition to ask to see his children could not be confirmed by USA TODAY Sports.
