Royce White has left his D League team, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, and has returned to Houston. White however, won’t be rejoinging the Houston Rockets although he has indicated that he will be working out. As per White’s preferred method of communication, White posted a message on Twitter.   Have been advised by our team physician it is most logical I be in Houston the remainder of the season.Thank you @rgvvipers for having me. — Royce White (@Highway_30) March 21, 2013   Never said I’d be rejoining the @houstonrockets… only that I’d be returning to Houston. Again, thank you @rgvvipers for having me. — Royce White (@Highway_30) March 21, 2013 Don’t understand the uproar because I’m working out in Houston… Lol, relax ppl! Showing you’re too high strung over sports.#BeWell — Royce White (@Highway_30) March 21, 2013 What does this mean for White’s future with the Rockets? I’m unsure. Clearly the two haven’t uncovered an amicable medium about how to best move forward in the treatment and maintenance of White’s anxiety issues. But has Houston done enough? I feel they have. The reality is part of the job description involved for an NBA career is travel. That’s clear going in. How far were the Rockets executives supposed to bend for unproven talent. Especially when things seem to be gelling nicely with the team they’ve put together this season. Royce indicates he’s training for next season but, if the Rockets aren’t apart of that process, and the point is to get acclimated for next season. How does that work? If it’s for another team, won’t there still be an adjustment period where he possibly won’t be available? Working out in Houston to transition to next year has been medically deemed the healthiest option. I’m excited to get to work. #BeWell — Royce White (@Highway_30) March 21, 2013 To clarify, I’m not quitting basketball. I’m working out in Houston to better transition and prepare for next season. Very excited for it… — Royce White (@Highway_30) March 21, 2013   Would be interesting to see how Royce’s Rocket teammates feel about this situation.
