It’s more than just being afraid of the boogie man. Royce White has a diagnosed condition, and now the Rockets may be the ones getting scared.
The team's rookie from Iowa State missed the start of training camp because of his anxiety disorder. He is apparently afraid to fly -something he also battled in college. White’s fears can reportedly become overwhelming.
The rookie says he will soon join the team at training camp in the Rio Grande Valley soon. In the meantime, he is working with the Rockets to arrange for a bus to take him to road games, though that would limit a big chunk of road trips.
The NBA and the players association have to approve the arrangement.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
