UNDATED (WKZO) --Former Pistons and Bulls star Dennis Rodman is reportedly in an alcohol-rehabilitation center.

CNN reports that "The Worm" entered rehab on Wednesday and it's not clear how long he could stay there.

The former NBA standout recently returned to the United States after a controversial visit to North Korea.

He partly blamed alcohol for the comments he made in a rambling interview in which he said an American imprisoned in North Korea may have done something to deserve his sentence.

The 52-year-old led a team of former pro basketball players in a game there and celebrated the birthday of North Korean leader and friend, Kim Jong Un.
