The continuing saga of Houston Rockets rookie Royce White took another turn on Tuesday when first the team sent him to the NBA's D-League and then White released a statement saying that the team has been "inconsistent" with an agreement "to proactively create a healthy and successful relationship," reports NBA.com.

White, who was drafted 16th overall in the 2012 NBA Draft, has a history of anxiety issues and has not played this season.

White said in a statement that the team is "aware of my position and the reason for my absence, any other response is inaccurate and says lack of support will make him unhealthy and that is not a consequence that I am willing to accept to play any sport."

"In hindsight, perhaps it was not a good idea to be open....honest about my anxiety disorder due to the current situations at hand," White said.

The Houston Chronicle reported Tuesday that White missed practice when he learned he was going to be sent to the NBA Development League. Rockets teammate Marcus Morris told the paper that White has not been at practice for the past three days.
