Channing Frye was diagnosed with an enlarged heart condition that kept him out of basketball entirely for all of last season. There was an extended period of time where Frye couldn’t even do any heavy cardio exercise just to stay in shape and his return to the court was uncertain at best.

As the season approaches and the Suns have 16 guaranteed contracts in place (after trading Luis Scola to the Pacers for Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee) the status of Frye has come into question. And the answer while not finalized just yet appears to be a positive one.
