D.J White Sent Back To Tulsa
The Thunder has re-assigned rookie forward D.J. White to the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA D-League, his second stint with the team in two weeks.
White was recalled on March 23 and practiced with the Thunder last Wednesday and Thursday but did not accompany the team on the current three-game road trip the continues with tonight’s game at Boston. In his previous stint with the 66ers, White averaged 17.3 points, 9.7 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 assists in 37.7 minutes. He is expected to be in the lineup tonight as the 66ers take on Bakersfield.
Under NBA rules, teams can assign players from their 15-man rosters to the D-League only three times during the season. White, however, is expected to rejoin the Thunder at some point prior to the season’s end and make his NBA debut after missing the entire season after undergoing two surgeries to remove and repair a benign growth in his jaw.
White could remain with the 66ers through Wednesday and play in the team’s game at Austin and perhaps through Friday and play one final game at home against Colorado. With the 66ers’ final three games coming on the road April 5, 10 and 11, White could rejoin the Thunder prior to Oklahoma City’s April 5 home game against Indiana and be available for the final seven games.
