The Houston Rockets finally get to see their top draft pick in play this preseason.  Royce White returned to the team's practice after completing a plan on how best to deal with anxiety issues that can keep him off the court.  The Rockets just wrapped up their first week of full practice and have yet to play a preseason game. Royce has anxiety over flying and obsessive-compulsive disorder says Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.  The team finalized a plan that will allow White to take a bus for many of the team's road games to avoid flying.  The anxiety has been a constant focus, but now White is just happy to focus on basketball.“I think routine is important, especially for someone like me,” White said. “I don’t really feel it. It’s my first day back. It’s not much of a routine yet, but it’s here.”White was the 16th overall pick in the draft.  He led Iowa State in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals, and blocks.  That type of dominance tends to make teams overlook things like anxiety.  And his conditions were no secret when teams were considering drafting him. With a formal plan in place, White hopes to be able to contribute and help the Rockets this season.  He has the talent to change the direction of their franchise.  It will just be a matter of adjusting and getting used to his new normal.
