HOUSTON (AP) - Royce White is back with the Houston Rockets' developmental league affiliate, five days after he left the team.
White announced on Twitter that he had returned to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers and that a ``miscommunication'' with the Rockets had been cleared up. He said last week that he had left the team and returned to Houston on the advice of a team doctor.
The Rockets had no comment on White's departure last week or his return.
White has played in 12 games for the Vipers, averaging 9.6 points and 5.6 rebounds. He was a first-round pick (16th overall) last summer and has yet to play for the Rockets.
