05:36 PM ET 02.01 | Royce White plants to report to the Houston Rockets' NBDL affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, and when he does, the Rockets will make arrangements for him to help him with his anxiety disorder. The rookie will bus to games whenever it is possible and fly to games when it is not. The Vipers have seven road games remaining. Although White will not have an independent doctor, he said the Rockets are being more helpful. "They said we're going to hit the reset button ... that mental health disorders need to be accommodated and there needs to be a place for mental health conditions in the NBA," White said.

This guy sucks. He lied to them prior to the draft, and he's using his "celebrity" to milk as much money and fame as possible out of them before admitting that the Americans with Disabilities Act shouldn't apply to high-end professional team sports. Since the ADA claims obesity is a "disability", half of America should sue the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL for not letting them play. Get a grip. You don't have the mentality to play in the NBA and they shouldn't be bending over backwards to accommodate you, while you rip them to shreds on Twitter.
