You can't do that, because if you do something like that then there's the very real possibility that you'd suddenly end up having to tailor make schedules for others. And I guarantee that if you do, then the player who loses minutes just so White can play a home game is going to be one unhappy person. You can't tell me that resentment wouldn't quickly bubble up among his teammates over his special treatment.
The reality is that he knew (or should have) that he was going to have to fly if he tried to play in the NBA; unfortunately his history shows that he feels entitled to special treatment and IMHO he just doesn't deserve it.
