While the Celtics didn’t offer a specific reason, White and his wife are expecting a baby, per Keith Smith of Spotrac

White was acquired from the Spurs at the February trade deadline and has played a strong role in the Celtics’ second-half surge. He struggled in the Game 1 loss to Miami, though, scoring just three points.
