OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma City Thunder have assigned second-year forward D.J. White to their NBA Developmental League affiliate in Tulsa.
White has appeared in eight games for Oklahoma City this season but has not played since having surgery in January to repair a broken right thumb.
White, a former Big Ten player of the year from Indiana, has been sidelined for most of his career since being picked in the first round of the 2008 draft. He missed the first 75 games of last season following surgery to remove a benign growth from his jaw.
White joins rookie Byron Mullens and second-year guard Kyle Weaver in Tulsa. Weaver hasn't played for the Thunder since he had left shoulder surgery in November.
Oklahoma City has not said whether guard Antonio Anderson would be given a second 10-day contract.
