The Houston Rockets announced that they have suspended Royce White.

"The Houston Rockets have suspended Royce White effective immediately for refusing to provide services as required by his Uniform Player Contract," Daryl Morey said in a statement. "We will continue to work with Royce to hopefully come to a resolution."

White rejected the Rockets' D-League assignment last week, and the 16th pick in last June's draft has yet to play this season.
