    Not With Team

    Thunder at Rockets - October 10, 2012 - Game Preview, Play by Play, Scores and Recap on NBA.com

    Royce was not with the team on 10 Oct due to staying home for conditioning.

    Terence Jones, his competition, had a big game.

    He was tweeting to the team though. I'm sure he just isn't playing yet because he wasn't at training.

    A lot like Ejim not starting for going to pregame late a couple years ago.

    Rockets first-round draft pick Royce White remained in Houston to work on his conditioning.

    Royce has ALWAYS maintained basketball wasn't his final dream but it was a means to an end... Love the guy, but wonder if Rockets did their homework on this one.

    ??? There was an article that had quotes from McHale saying Royce was not in good shape and was behind everyone in the play book. The conditioning needs work before he can play alot so it's a smart move by the rockets.

    Re: Not With Team

    Ugh. Not to be insensitive, but if this NBA deal doesn't work out(which I really hope it does) it really sucks that RW left early, he could have stayed in Ames another year where he felt comfortable and won a Big 12 Championship.

    Re: Not With Team

    Basically they left him behind ebcause he didnt know their plays yet. He will be fine.

    Re: Not With Team

    I'd be concerned when he steps on the floor and plays poorly (or doesn't get to step on the floor at all)

    Re: Not With Team

    1. He missed training camp, and is now working on conditioning because that made him behind on conditioning.
    2. Royce White is cashing checks for millions of dollars because he left this year. Not succeeding immediately in the NBA does not make leaving early the wrong decision.

    Question Re: Not With Team

    He didn't play again tonight. McHale said Royce was not up to speed with the rest of the team. I'm afraid his training camp holdout may cost him minutes and a rotation spot.
