White, who has yet to play for the Houston Rockets, has left his D-League team and will continue to work out in Houston, although he will not play for the NBA club. White has a fear of flying and other anxiety issues that the team was aware of and promised to work through, but the relationship between White and the Rockets seemed to deteriorate as the season went on.
The 16th pick in last year’s draft tweeted that he was following his doctors’ advice. [tweet https://twitter.com/Highway_30/status/314733488819539968 align=’center’]
Twitter reacted, as it often does, quickly and mercilessly. White retweeted many of the more angry messages he received. [tweet https://twitter.com/felixng2011/status/314778909373763584 align=’center’] [tweet https://twitter.com/Bobbythegreat/status/314776495203684353 align=’center’]
It is up in the air when White might get onto the court for the Rockets, if ever, but it definitely will not be this season.
