Royce White says health more important
November 16, 2012
HOUSTON (AP) - Rockets first-round pick Royce White says on Twitter that properly treating his mental-health condition is more important than his NBA career.
White, the 16th overall pick in the 2012 draft, has been absent from Houston's practices for almost a week and called the team ``inconsistent' for how it was helping him deal with his anxiety issues and obsessive compulsive disorder.
ESPN first reported that White was prepared to walk away from the NBA. According to the ESPN report, he will meet with the Rockets on Monday to discuss his future.
White posted on Twitter: ``I'm not PLANNING to quit, but if its between my HEALTH and BASKETBALL, health takes precedence.'' The team has not commented beyond White is ``not available'' and the Rockets will continue to support him.
