Royce White Refuses D-League Assignment

Royce White was sent to the Houston Rockets' D-League affiliate on Saturday, but he released a statement Sunday refusing to accept the assignment.

White also made it clear once again that he is not pleased with the Rockets' support and management of his medical disorder.

"The information that the Houston Rockets have publicly presented about this situation has been extremely misleading and a lot of times totally inaccurate," White said in a statement. "An image of support has been presented by the Rockets, but the only logical support here would be listening to the recommendation of the medical professionals involved. That has not totally happened here. I have chosen to not play, because the doctors and I believe it to be unsafe for unqualified Rockets front office personnel to make medical decisions, as they are not mental health professionals.”
