Asked about White last night, McHale said, "I have no idea." He didn't. Morey has dealt w situation alone to keep it from being distraction.

When McHale was asked about White in Minneapolis, White's hometown, he needed a moment to know who they were asking about. Out of sight...

It's only right that McHale doesn't concentrate on him right now.

If we were losing, it'd be a different story. However, we're the sixth seed in the West right now. He doesn't have time for this whole Royce situation.

BTW, you think lawyers had hand in Morey statement citing White "refusing to provide services as required by his uniform player contract?"

@Jonathan_Feigen Rockets are clearly building/documenting best possible case/defense for voiding contract, defending possible ADA claim.

We should not pay him any salary until he joins the practice.
I have no idea why college basketball has better health care than professional basketball in Royce"s eye

Wow, so basically he admits he quit before the Rockets could suspend him? Good Job, White. Way to show your true colors.

Rockets general manager Daryl Morey had been in talks with White throughout the week, but was unable to reach an agreement in which White would report to his assignment with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

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

Rockets are pretty fortunate the team is doing well. You know how the Media loves to laugh at the Rockets. Since Harden and Lin are beasting right now, and the future still very bright for the league's youngest team, the analyst can say what a huge mistake drafting this guy has been. I haven't heard much about this incident at all besides scrolling text at the bottom of the screen.

Odd thing about this suspension. Will anything change for Rockets but White's bank account? Not as if players/coaches will notice difference

I'm glad the FO has taken this action. It sends a good message to the team members and the fans. I hope Royce is able to find a way to move forward in a positive manner, whether it's to re-integrate with the Rockets, or to move on.

I was also wondering the same thing about starting threads, and can only speculate that the newbie group that signed up in the months before Christmas had their privileges locked up (as discussed elsewhere), but subsequent new members signed on with full rights?

If this issue doesn't get resolved with White actually playing, I can see the Rockets sue White for slander. White is basically abusing doctor-patient confidentiality to work the narrative in his favor. It's amazing that the public sentiment is almost all against him despite the fact that the Rockets can't say a damn thing.

Morey is in a terrible position right now. He has to keep his mouth shut due to considerations to future players relationships and in terms of confidentiality. Plus he doesn't want his pick to go to waste because White does have talent. It's a pretty difficult situation, but he is certainly handling it the right way. And I'm glad that all these attacks by White aren't getting sympathy from the public.
