NBA sources told FOX 26 Sports rookie forward Royce White met with the Houston Rockets on Wednesday and the meeting went well.
The sources told FOX 26 White will not report to the team's training camp in McAllen, Tx. on Thursday, but could rejoin the team in the near future.
White told FOX 26 on Tuesday he had not joined the team for camp because of issues related to the fact he suffers from anxiety.
"We are trying to figure out a plan for me to be healthy and successful long-term," White said on Tuesday. "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 on Tuesday he did not know how long it would take before he rejoined the team.
Late Wednesday night White issued the following statement through his Los Angeles-based publicist China Myers:
The Rockets have not been available for comment, but general manager Daryl Morey did issue a statement late Tuesday night offering support for White.
"We are committed to Royce's long term success and we will continue to support him now and going forward," said Morey.
The Rockets drafted White out of Iowa State with the 16th pick in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft.
