Description: The Kings have signed controversial forward Royce White to a ten-day contract. SOURCE: Kings on Twitter
Insight: White will get his feet wet in the D-League and depending on how that goes, he could get another ten-day contract with the big club. Even if White sticks, he's not likely to be a major fantasy asset.

Description: Former 2012 first-round pick of the Rockets, Royce White, was waived by the Philadelphia 76ers.
Insight: Anxiety issues have prevented White from appearing in a single NBA game up to his point. White led Iowa State in points, assists, rebounds, steals and blocked shots as a sophomore so he obviously has talent, but the other issues are apparently too much to overcome.

Insight: Anxiety issues have prevented White from appearing in a single NBA game up to his point. White was a five-category star in college (he led Iowa State in points, assists, rebounds, steals and blocked shots as a sophomore) so if he can get past this hurdle, he'll obviously be a huge fantasy asset. We're not sure if that's ever going to happen though.

Description: Rockets forward Royce White has passed his physical and will report to the team's D-League affiliate on Monday. SOURCE: Houston Chronicle
Insight: White is one step closer to making his NBA debut. He has spent the entire season embroiled in a dispute with the Rockets over the handling of his mental illness but came to an agreement with the team late last month.
 
1/27/2013 4:31:00 PM
Description: Rookie forward Royce White has officially been reinstated by the Rockets. He'll join Rio Grande of the NBA Development League on February 11th.
Insight: White was suspended earlier this month after refusing his assignment to the D-League and ranting on Twitter about the Rockets' perceived mishandling of his mental illness. We're not sure what to expect from White or if we'll even see him in the NBA this season but this is at least a step in the right direction.
 
1/23/2013 6:51:00 PM
Description: According to the Houston Chronicle, forward Royce White is close to returning to the Rockets. White was suspended earlier in the month for refusing to report to the team's D-League affiliate in Rio Grande.
Insight: White is expected to start in the D-League so he won't have fantasy relevance right away.
 
1/6/2013 7:49:00 PM
Description: Rockets forward Royce White has been suspended for a week after refusing his assignment to play in the D-League.
Insight: White, a first round pick, admitted in an interview earlier this week that there's a chance he might never play in the NBA. This situation doesn't look very promising.
 
12/31/2012 3:28:00 PM
Description: According to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets do not plan to release disgruntled rookie Royce White despite his refusal to play in the D-League.
Insight: White hasn't appeared in a single game for the Rockets this season and who knows if he ever will. We'll let you know if anything changes but for now, he's not a fantasy option.
 
12/30/2012 2:21:00 PM
Description: Houston forward Royce White has, once again, refused an assigment to the D-League.
Insight: Here we go again. The Rockets and their first round draft pick seem to be at an impasse and it doesn't look like this situation will be resolved any time soon. Ignore him in fantasy.
 
12/30/2012 10:38:00 AM
Description: Rockets forward Royce White has been assigned to the D-League.
Insight: White had been on a sabbatical to deal with some of his personal issues including OCD, anxiety disorder and a fear of flying but now it appears he's finally ready to rejoin the team. Obviously, he won't have any fantasy value until he's back up with the big team but this at least looks like a step in the right direction for the talented but very high maintenance power forward.
 
11/7/2012 10:30:00 AM
Description: Rockets rookie power forward Royce White is questionable for Wednesday's game against Denver with a migraine problem.
Insight: We're still waiting to see how Houston uses the talented rookie in a regular season game, but he'll likely get limited minutes behind Patrick Patterson.
 
10/6/2012 12:04:00 PM
Description: Forward Royce White has come to an agreement with the Rockets that will allow him to take a bus to away games that are close enough to drive to instead of flying with the team. White will report to Rockets camp on Monday.
Insight: It's a unique situation but it should help White in dealing with his anxiety issues. White probably won't play a major role in Houston as a rookie.
 
10/4/2012 12:25:00 PM
Description: Houston rookie forward Royce White is seeking permission from the team to travel by bus instead of flying to some of the team's away games this season.
Insight: White, well known for his anxiety disorder, has a crippling fear of planes, and has not reported to Rockets camp because of personal issues. White showed plenty of potential last year at Iowa State when he led the team in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals but his mental illness could prevent him from being an effective player at the next level. We'd be weary abou White's fantasy prospects heading into the season.
