Channing Frye missed all of last season because of an enlarged heart condition. It took away last season but it also threatened to take away his entire career. But in an interview with Bright Side of the Sun Frye says he's now been medically cleared to return to basketball. "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." [...] "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." [...] "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. "Now its in the Suns hands." Frye has been cleared but that doesn't necessarily mean he's back. He has to be given a pass by the Suns and the team has to want him back as well. Frye was paid his salary last season via insurance but he's on the books for $6.4 million this season and $6.8 million next season (player option). The Suns have 16 players under contract already and the league's maximum is 15.
