Almost two weeks ago the Phoenix Suns Channing Frye let his fans know that his latest test results were coming back soon. "it is or it isn't" he tweeted. Then he followed it up a week later with an instagram pic of him pumping his fist with a #YES caption.

Now Channing Frye reveals to Bright Side of the Sun's Kris Habbas exactly what those cryptic messages meant and how close he is to returning to the Suns.

"I've been cleared by the numerous doctors I've seen" Frye said on on Tuesday for this week's podcast. "This whole process has been extremely detail-oriented on both sides - from my side and the Suns side. We both want to do what's best. I went across country to see the best doctors I could all to make sure they all agreed that I was healthy that I could do this."

Just a year ago the prognosis sounded naive.

The Phoenix Suns held a press conference on Friday after the reports regarding Channing Frye's enlarged heart (dilated cardiomyopathy) were made public. Now that the initial shock has worn off the prognosis from the Suns seems to be more sanguine that saturnine.

"There is a very real chance that he could return to normal function and a normal lifestyle and that's what we all need to be hopeful for" said team cardiologist Tim Byrne. When asked if he thought the chance was better than not he responded "Yes. The chance is better than not."

Frye will be reevaluated in December.
What was painted as a hopeful outcome last year may just be coming to fruition after all.

"When it comes down to it my health is #1" Frye says now. "I said [to the doctors last month] I'm just here to get a prognosis from you on my health and they gave me the okay.

"Right now I'm excited but still patient in giving the Suns the information and letting their people go through it. As far as I'm concerned I'm 100% healthy for any professional athlete. Right now I think it's just let [the Suns] assess the information and go from there."

That's not all the good news. Frye has been exercising for two months now and his heart is better than ever. Last we heard anything of substance Frye was still restricted to yoga golf and playing with his kids while doctors waited for his heart to return to normal size. Apparently that information was only as recent as early summer.

New Suns GM Ryan McDonough commented in July that the latest tests were positive and that the Suns were optimistic Frye could return next season. At that time Frye was apparently cleared to resume exercising so the doctors could monitor his progress and see how his heart reacted.

Those results just came back in the last week or so.

"I saw [the doctors] earlier this summer and they said 'you're good' and that I could start to exercise" Frye recalls. "Saw them a couple months later and 'You're better than what you were'. Not only one doctor but three other ones maybe four other ones agree with me.
