Frye developed a dilated cardiomyopathy, which is an enlarged heart. This was found during a routine preseason physical by Suns team cardiologist Dr. Tim Byrne.
"The good news is it is a virus so it does have a good chance of going away," Frye said. "My heart can be normal again."
Frye will not participate in any basketball activities and his progress will be re-evaluated in December. He said he would rest for six months, confining his activities to golf and yoga.
Frye visited the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota Wednesday.
Best wishes to him in his recovery.
