The Houston Rockets have reinstated suspended forward Royce White and he's due to report to the team's developmental league affiliate on February 11th.
The 6-foot-8 White, the 16th overall pick in last year's draft from Iowa State, has been on the inactive list all season as he worked on an arrangement with the team to balance his acknowledged anxiety disorder with the demands of the NBA schedule.
The Rockets said Saturday they had reached an agreement that "addresses the major issues" for the two sides. The league and the players' union have both approved the settlement.
White was vocal on Twitter throughout the saga, often criticizing the team. The Rockets suspended White on January 6th after he refused to accept an assignment to Rio Grande Valley in the NBDL.
