The Thunder has assigned rookie forward D.J. White to the Tulsa 66ers, its D-League affiliate.

White, the 29th overall pick, has yet to play in this year because of jaw surgery. He was cleared by team doctors on Monday to resume full-contact practices and games after having not played or practiced since before the start of training camp.

Thunder officials made the move hoping that White can get his timing back in Tulsa and receive more playing time than he likely would recevive in Oklahoma City.

White is expected to rejoin the team before the end of the season and make his debut with the Thunder.
