Lamar Odom's arraignment in a driving under the influence case has been delayed until October 10.
The basketball star did not appear in a Los Angeles courtroom for Friday's hearing. Odom's attorney appeared before the court on his behalf and asked the judge for continuance.
The judge granted the request. It is not clear why Odom's attorney asked for a delay.

The NBA star was arrested August 30 on a DUI charge after a California highway patrolman allegedly noticed him driving in a "serpentine manner at 50 mph" at 3 a.m. The patrolman pursued Odom for about three miles, before he finally came to a stop, according to the police report.

Odom "showed signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests," according to police. He also refused all chemical tests when he arrived at the LAPD Van Nuys Jail, police said.
In 2001, Odom admitted to violating the NBA's drug policies twice.
"I've made a couple [of mistakes] and I may make a couple again, but hopefully they won't be as big as this one," Odom said at the time during a press conference.
Five days before his arrest, Khloe Kardashian, Odom's wife, tweeted her frustrations about reports that her husband was struggling with an addiction to pain medications.
"Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk [expletive] about my family! [Expletive] you and shame on you! I'm too protective for this [expletive]!" the reality star tweeted August 25.
Odom, who has played for four teams in his NBA career; the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Clippers, has not signed with a team this year.
