After months of riding on the Royce White roller coaster, the Rockets are giving him his first punishment.

The following statement was released this morning by Rockets general manager Daryl Morey:

The Houston Rockets have suspended Royce White effective immediately for refusing to provide services as required by his Uniform Player Contract. We will continue to work with Royce to hopefully come to a resolution.

White has been a no-show at multiple practices and blames anxiety disorder for his troubles and tremendous fear of flying. He’s also taken to Twitter to speak out against the organization and foolishly plead his case.
