L = (I(disc)+I(point mass))w where w is the angular velocity.

or do I have to use the moment of inertia tensor. i am a little bit confused now....

Assuming the disk is rotating about its center, if you used the moment of inertia tensor it would come out to the same thing. I think that that axis would be one of the principal axes, and you would have an integral of x
