I’m going to try and give Royce White some breathing room on this one.
According to CBS3 in Philadelphia, White did not travel to Spain for the Sixers preseason game on Sunday against Bilbao.
The Sixers will also travel travel to Manchester, England for a preseason game on Tuesday against the Thunder. Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer also confirmed for me that White was not in Spain.
#Sixers coach Brett Brown said Royce White isn't in Europe per team doctor recommendations,

During the team’s media day gathering, White stated that he would fly to most games, drive to the ones he could, and definitely make the trip to Europe.
White gets the benefit of the doubt this time because it was the team doctors wishes.
