Houston Rockets forward Royce White returned to practice today after an absence surrounding his anxiety and mental health battles.

The rookie did not join the Rockets when training camp opened a week ago, with concerns over the execution of his plans to keep his anxiety at bay. After meeting with the Rockets several times, White released very positive statements via his publicist and on Twitter indicating that he and the team were being "proactive" so that problems don't arise in the future.

Four days ago, the Rockets and White came to an agreement that would allow the 6'8" forward to travel by bus to certain games, which are assumed to be closer games at Dallas, San Antonio, and New Orleans.

The No. 16 overall pick in the 2012 draft, White's skills combined a forward's frame with triple-threat ability, as he averaged 13.4 points, 9.3 rebounds, and five5 assists per contest in his senior year at Iowa State.
