I can believe I can fly?

The Rockets announced that rookie forward Royce White is not with the club in McAllen for training camp because of "personal matters."

White also did not attend the club's media day on Monday for the same reasons.

He told FOX 26 Sports the personal matters are related to the fact that he suffers from anxiety issues.

"We are trying to figure out a plan for me to be healthy and successful long-term," White said. "It's not really anything that's going on right now. It's more of trying to take a pro-active approach and trying to put together a solid plan.

"It is definitely linked with my anxiety sure, but it's not so much as far as my anxiety now. Basically what happened was my doctor, we discussed it, and it was decided the way the plan was now just wasn't logistically healthy.

"So what can we do strategically to try and improve the chances of everybody being successful in this situation, my success and the Rockets success? If I fail then that's not good for them either, because it's an investment."

White said he did not know how long it take before he rejoined the team.

Not a good sign if we assume he's had plenty of time to make it to the start of camp. :-/

Eh... I'm just going to use this an excuse to post a link to a video for a great punk cover of the R. Kelly song.

That sound you can all hear is the Royce White's sleeper potential circling the bowel of the porcelain throne. %-6

Here's the latest update http://www.slamonline.com/online/nba/2012/10/royce-white-wants-permission-from-rockets-to-take-a-bus-to-games/ I'm sure the Rockets are wondering, the same thing I'm wondering. Dude you honestly think you needed to hold out to resolve this issue. We knew about your disorder when we drafted you. You don't think if it had become that serious we wouldn't have tried to accommodate you.
Anyway I was thinking that his anxiety disorder might play into his poor shooting. Nobody expects him to be a great passer so he can relax and excel there, but with shooting there's expectations and the pressure of meeting those expectations.

All is forgiven http://blog.chron.com/ultimaterockets/2012/10/royce-white-finds-a-way-to-travel-without-anxiety/ So dynasty leaguers can breathe a temporary sigh of relief :-° So it sounds like he flew some in college. I wonder realistically how many road games he can get to by Bus.

I'm glad for him to try to address this up front and right away. I'm sure it's not easy.
