Lindsay Lohan -- One Day to Freedom

Lindsay Lohan may be a free woman in 24 hours ... based on new developments in the case.

As TMZ first reported, all signs are pointing to Lindsay Lohan being released from UCLA this week -- and we're hearing it will happen tomorrow.  Judge Elden Fox has decided not to issue an order today, but rather he will make a decision tomorrow at 8:30 AM PT.

As we've told you, the doctors at UCLA think Judge Marsha Revel's mandate that Lindsay spend 90 days in rehab is excessive, and they are recommending an early release. 

Sources tell us going into last weekend, the plan was for a Wednesday release, and all signs now point to Judge Fox releasing Lindsay tomorrow morning and ordering outpatient care.
