(HOUSTON) --  The Houston Rockets have reinstate suspended rookie forward Royce White.

The team announced Saturday that they had reached an agreement with White that addresses major issues for both sides.  The league and the players' union have both approved the settlement.

The 16th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft has been on the inactive list all season as he tries to balance his anxiety disorder while adjusting to life in the NBA.  Traveling with the team to games by plane is the largest issue.

White is due to report to the Rockets' developmental league affiliate in Rio Grande Valley on Feb. 11.
