Lamar Odom had track marks on his arms -- and cocaine and opiates in his system -- leading to his hospitalization in Las Vegas, according to online reports.

Medical professionals treating the ex-NBA forward at the Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas confirmed the presence of drugs in his system, according to reports, which noted that crack cocaine abuse was responsible for the fluid that had built up in his lungs. Many in Odom's fast-living circle of friends flocked to the medical facility but were not allowed access to the ailing athlete, according to reports, as he battled for his life amid serious issues with his lungs and kidneys.

Insiders told E!  that "virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system," and that the one-time top NBA rebounder "had been partying since Friday.

"He was doing crack cocaine all weekend and he choked on his mucous," sources told the outlet. "They're now having to fix all the damage it has done."

Medical professionals are proceeding in the situation as if it's an "overdose," as the "long term effects of his drug use have taken a toll on his body and the binge this time was too much to handle," the source told E! News.

Odom suffered a "possible stroke," adding that "likely there's brain damage, but doctors are not sure how much," but that he's not brain dead.

Sources previously told Radar that doctors "have some other organs they're are trying to revive. He's unconscious but heart is fine ... his heart is the only thing that is fine."

As Radar previously reported, Odom, 35, was taken to the hospital from the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada Tuesday. Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof told the AP that the troubled former L.A. Clipper had consumed herbal Viagra and cognac, but that he was unaware of any other substances he might have taken.
